I enjoy the fact that people compliment how cute my children are, and I don't mind them sometimes speaking to my children. However, I get a little on edge when they want to shake their hands, or touch my little baby on the face and hands. I kinda get like "what have you been touching, and did you wash your hands recently?!?. . ." I know that children build up immunty by being exposed to germs, but I really don't like people putting their hands on my kids not knowing if their hands are clean. I Especially have a problem with them touching my kids when they were tiny babies because they can't fight off things like older kids and we can. I kinda feel like it is rude when a stranger comes up and does so without my permission. I wanna post a HANDS OFF sign and admire from a distance! It's just an invasion on my comfort zone. Do any other mothers feel the same way? I don't want to be the mom of the next bubble boy!
