Then again, those who can't, teach, right?

The other day, someone arrived here from Greece through a Google search for "stop a child from eating off the floor," and all I can say to that is you, my friend, definitely came to the wrong place.

Sorry about that. I'll let you know if I ever become able to help you on that front.

The answer: Get a dog. They are faster than children.

I wonder what foreigners think when they get to these blogs.

You inspired my post today, Dan. Good for you.

I concur w/ MAW on the dog. BTW, I never get good search queries. Today I had "Kim Rhodes boobies."

So you're saying you can't get a child to stop eating off the floor?

About to be blatantly stereotypical:

Get a goat.

Miss Grace said...

I still *might* eat off the floor. Depends on the floor. And the food. yknow?

You go online to find out how to stop your child from eating off the floor??? This is a problem that you need global advice to solve? They deserve what they find... oh, wait they found you. They can learn this is not such a problem then.

i don't understand. you mean they don't want their kid to eat off the floor?? why not? how else is that dropped stuff gonna get cleaned up? and haven't they ever hear of the 5 second rule? i thought everybody knew that if it was less than 5 seconds (and of course you blow it off) that it is perfectly fine. maybe over there in greece they are all rich and can afford to just throw food away willy nilly. wow, what a culture shock. i'm gonna have to go think about this one.

The comments you get are just as hilarious as your posts! Ah, that's why I love visiting you. Yes - dogs are definitely faster but sometimes the kid will fight them for the morsel. What? Yes, I DO feed my kids, thank you very much.

I'm in shock right now because one of your commenters is one of my oldest and dearest friends who I haven't spoken to in like six months. I feel weird seeing him here in your comment section but you will now be responsible of a reunion of sorts.

Thanks.

Sorry I'm not commenting on children and floor eating right now.

But I'm pro floor eating.

How are Greeks dropping their food on the ground? They have the most convenient and portable foods around, gyros,kabobs,stuffed grape leaves... hmm mystery.

On an unrelated note I had left a very touching comment for you and J when you mentioned her hip surgery. When I noticed it hadn't been published I feared I may have said something to offend the LD's... noticing you don't delete double posted comments ☝put my mind at ease, technical error it is. Hope she's doing better.

I once wrote a post about how I have a scar on my chest that looks like a butthole and now I get lots of people coming to me about butt stuff. Nice.

Vodka Mom said...

I couldn't make it Anthony in time today, and he ate SOMETHING off the floor, and couldn't identify what it was. jesus.

What's wrong with eating off the Floor? Hey! Is that a forgotten Milk Dud? Wait a sec....that might be poop. Still, Miiiilk Duuuud. It's almost worth the Gamble.

I gotta start mixing it up.

one day, my post is going to just be a rambling of interesting words, then maybe i'll get some goofy search hits to my blog.

That is such a plan. {evil laughter}

Dammit. I was hoping to get some pointers.

What about stopping your child LICKING the floor of SAFEWAY?

I am thinking super glue. Or duct tape...

I used to think I should spread broccoli on the floor and see if my eldest would eat it.
