I must admit that sometimes, it slips my mind but my boyfriend will go wash his everytime. Its usually im so busy fixing plates and getting the kids together that I just sit down and start digging in. Am I the only one with this bad habit?

I think a lot of us parents are cooking and getting meals ready that we just sit down and start chowing down but I think most of us wash our hands before starting to prepare the meal. I always have my kids wash up before they eat.

I always wash my hands before eating. I am one of those people who wash their hands all the time though. I always make sure my son washes his hands before he comes to the table too. Ya know in typing this I just realized that I do not wash my 11 month olds hands all the time before she eats. OOps!
