You've Got Some Schmutz On Your Face!

I have officially been initiated in to the motherhood tribe. My son had a chocolate milk stain on his face, and my instant inclination was to lick my finger and clean it with my spit.

I am a Jewish mother. This brought back memories of my own childhood, my mother's hand reaching out to wipe food or beverage remains from my face with her own spit.

It's not a glamorous job, but someone has got to do it? Has anyone else succumbed to the spit solution? Thoughts?


  1. DAILY!!! Haha! This is funny and oh so true!

  2. Not yet but I use my shirt or sleeve to wipe gallons of spit-up off my kid and then continue to wear the shirt for the rest of the day.

  3. I am one of the guilty parties, cleaning faces etc with saliva.
