Its not a secret that I have a very dirty baby. She’s never complained about a dirty diaper and is happy to walk around with a shirt wet with drool. So its not surprising that she doesn’t keep her toys clean either. Just last week she spat berry coloured liquid multi-vitamin syrup on her soft toy rabbit and we had to put it in the washing machine. After that rabbit hung by its ears on the clothesline for a day to dry and throughout this period Sophia was constantly pointing to rabbit and demanding for it.
I thought the traumatising experience of not having rabbit to play with would be a sufficient deterrent against dirtying rabbit again so when she tried to carry rabbit with papaya stained hands I said “No no, your hands are dirty, if you hug rabbit it would need to go for a bath!” she couldn’t care less but proceeded to hug rabbit anyway. Then did this to rabbit:
