Just this past weekend I made a conscience decision to have the kids wash their hands before every meal. I didn't realize how infrequently the kids were doing so. They have had A LOT of sicknesses over the past two winters. I want to see if I can make a difference with this act. There's a short article from the MayoClinic about hand washing. To read it click here. The concept is simple and it's being displayed in public bathrooms everywhere: Wash your hands to prevent germs from infecting you!
I hate admitting this for two reasons. I don't want people to think I'm gross for not having implementing this habit sooner. Also, I don't really want to think that it's been my fault that my kids have gotten so many colds. I guess that's what makes this a confession. :D
