Purely Hypothetical

Hypothetically, would it be so bad if I spilled a bowl's worth of Cheerios on the floor? And, hypothetically, instead of sweeping them up off of my floor, I, hypothetically, swept them into a pile, picked out any dirt that hypothetically existed, and allowed my 1 year old to eat them until her tummy was full?

Because, hypothetically, that could happen.

We have the "10 minute rule" around our house... if it's been on the floor for less than 10 minutes we deem it still edible... gross for some, I'm sure, but I like to think of it as "building immunity"!

Liam has his first dinner in the high chair, and then a second dinner on the floor from what he threw himself minutes before.

Yeah, I am sure the 5-minute rule applies to children under the age of 8. They don't know any better and usually beat us to the "cleaning up" part - plus they've had their shots. Love - Aunt Cheryl
