Never say never, right?
This winter, no matter how many times I wash Lena's face when we are home, I am always surprised by how dirty it looks when I take her out of the carseat!
And yes, I gave in. Rather then take her into the store looking very neglected, I took a furtive look around me. I licked my finger, and yes - I wiped those areas around her mouth that were just totally unacceptable!
She giggled with delight, and she didn't look neglected anymore. Sooooooo ...
... ok - I've done it more then once now.
Earlier this week, I came around to the backseat to scoop her out of the car, and there she was ....
... grinning triumphantly and licking her finger.
I watched as she carefully wiped her face - and then she flashed me a brilliant "look how I helped you, mom!"
I smiled weakly.
So she learned a not so good thing from her mom. I have to admit it.
