Let Them Eat Dirt!




Did you hear? Dirty is the new clean. To celebrate we took the girls to the beach for a bite to eat. Did you know that there are is more bacteria in sand than water? HMMMM maybe I will get that mom of the year award after all. She's not getting filthy or eating goo. She is building her immunity, double time.

WOOO HOOO! Article: Dirt is Good For Babies!!

* Please don't send me reminders that wet sand is not the same as good old fashion dirt. I do not want to even know about all the
bacteria, fungi, parasites
and viruses found in beach sand. Raising two princesses is scary enough as it it. Just let me wallow in this bit of dirty hope, for now. Pretty Please!

Every time we are at the beach, Sav ends up with a mouth full of sand. It goes straight from the shovel into the mouth. It's all natural, right??? Don't burst my bubble!

Kim said...

Oh she'll be fine. My kids have eaten dirt, bugs, dog food, and I'm sure many more things I never knew about. They're fine. Wait.... maybe that's what's wrong with them. Hmmmmmm......

Saundra@ItalianMamaGoneCrazy said...

Well if that's true... then my kids are super healthly! 3 boys can ingest a mountain of sand, dirt, bugs and all kinds of lovely things...

Yeah!!! Dirt is good for them !! Yahooooo!

HI,

Stopping by from Little Birdie Secrets. I love these pictures and your blog post made me laugh! I struggle with whether or not to wipe them down with sanitizer or just to let it go. You're right. Let them eat dirt :)
