The kids and I were in the changing room of our local swimming pool. As I was pulling a jumper on The Girlie, a piece of toast fell out of its sleeve and I promptly stuck it in my mouth - as I do at home.
And it's only once I'd already stuck it in my mouth that it occurred to me: I'm not even sure if it was The Girlie's toast, or someone else's food that had stuck to her jumper from the changing rooms' benches.
By that moment, however, there's wasn't much I could do apart from just swallow the thing and tell myself, "A variety of bacteria is good for the immune system."
It's what I keep telling myself as my children keep getting dirty, muddy, sandy and wet on a daily basis.
Oh to be a preschooler again!
