The 5 Seconds Rule

I’m a firm believer in the 5 seconds rule. If you drop your food on the floor, you have 5 seconds to pick it up and still be able to eat it. Otherwise, germs have taken over it and it will more than likely kill you. Hahahahaha
For some reason my boys think that having their food on the floor makes it taste better. Am I a bad mom because I sat there and watched them do this horrible deed? Lol lol The worst part is the fact that I watched them pick it up and put it back into the box. What’s so bad about that you may ask? Well, as soon as dad got home, what’s the first thing he grabs for a snack?!?
Big Brother, the instigator of the whole operation!

Have you had your portrait created today?

I am embarrased to say how long food can sit on the floor before I wont let me 9 month old pick it up and eat it. He has a hibbit of thrwoing things, and somethimes mommy doesnt run right over to pick it up, food or not! LOL

Oh EWWW!!!! Back in the box!!
love the pictures too. You can laugh about all that later when your kids are all grown up! You say...Hey remember when you put those snacks on the floor then put them back in the box and then your dad ate them...All the while your husband is sitting there listening and going oh my....no wonder there was always just a little grit to my snacks..haha Just kidding!

hahaha I love that! You make me laugh! What harm could it possibly do to dad? I mean, if he knew, you know he'd eat it anyway. Makes me think of when my friend was over with her 18 month old little boy the other day. I had a random sunchip on the floor (just a little piece of one) and all the sudden we look over and little Jaxson is munching on a chip. We're like..umm..I have no idea how long that's been there. But he was perfectly happy eating it! lol

Ah, a southern girl!! It's the 5 second rule in our house too. Does not apply to the floor at school, though. :-) Cheez It's are my 17 year old son's favorite. My friend's DH gave him two boxes for Christmas! Love the angle on these shots, and they are definately keepers. This kind of shot is my favorite.....day to day life.

I love these. Just laughing at the 5 second rule. With my first child I didn't want him eating anything off the floor. Now with baby 2, it's like well if she gets it before the dog then it's all hers. :)
I really like the composition of these and the colors.

Leah said...
