    Deep breath... I don't understand how kids are getting that dirty all the time?

    Erm... By that I mean, DD very rarely spills any food on herself. She did when she was about 6-15mths (ish) and then we always put a bib on her. So even then it hardly ever got on to her clothes - just the bib. And since then, she doesn't really spill anything.

    If I give her something like spaghetti for dinner then it will be messy, but I would then put a bib on her, or strip her off. During the day she doesn't spill anything like fruit, toast, sandwiches, etc.

    Sometimes she might spill a little baby cino on herself, but it's only minor, and a wipe gets rid of it straight away. (And I do wipe it, as I don't want it to stain).

    She can do what she likes in the park, or at playgroup. If it's rainy/ muddy she wears gumboots and a coat, but she still doesn't get that messy/ dirty.

    I'm not trying to make out she's perfect, or anything like that. But some people are saying how impossible it is to keep kids clean, and how they feel sorry for kids who are clean/ nicely dressed as they don't get a chance to play.

    Well, DD does play lots. She just doesn't get THAT messy. I'm just not understanding...?

    Really, no ill intent meant with this post! Just trying to understand.
    If I lived near you I'd introduce you to my Ds,

    Food - apple is fine, everything else will end up from his toes to his hair tips.

    Vegemite sandwich or toast I will be wiping it out of his ears.

    If paint is at playgroup I shudder as I know I will end up scrubbing his hair and wiping under his arms :/ he is a cyclone of mess

    If anyone has ever had a toddler they will know its impossible to keep them clean for 5 minutes! AND how impossible it is to dress/change them. I'm a single mum and want to slap anyone who thinks its that simple to keep them clean! Even non-single parents with all the help in the world would understand this.

    So my answer is, don't care! :0

    My little bro has a double crown. They are not fun. Unfortunately little girls can't get away with a number 2 like little boys can. My daughter has her kept short. It's fine and whispy and fly away, impossible to handle, and she hates when I brush it so it sits around her ears.

    Eh I think after reading this thread I need to chill about messy clothes. I always assumed people would look badly at me having my kids look feral.. maybe its because I'm the type of mum whose appearance gets me judged anyway.. I like to over compensate..

    My poor brother, double crown, double cowlick. He no longer has hair but his DD looks like she has at least one of each.

    well i can only imagine the judging looks i would get off DD at the moment, she has gelled her hair together, has a grotty face, and a dirty shirt.. why because she has been playing all day and will get dirty at dinner as well so i just wait until after dinner for showers.
    shes a very, independent 2.5 year old and i have better battles to deal with then what she will wear that day

    1) What do you think of a parent or carer taking a child out in public in obviously dirty clothes:

    a) nothing wrong with it, as long as the child doesnt stink of pee etc.

    2) If you saw a mother with a child in dirty clothes, would you
    c) be indifferent, wonder what fun said child was having before the mean mummy took it out.




    My children are washed every night, the only time i took spare clothes with me was when they were newborns and did poo explosions. and i wouldn't now they were bigger, i dont judge children on how they look or how they dress or their parents.

    Same! Except the person running their hands along our car is usually DD...

    Actually I've just realised why she stays clean. She doesn't wipe anything on herself - she comes over to me and tries to wipe it on me!!! (And usually gets intercepted...)

    Holy craperoni the judgment in this thread is unbelievable! Mums have lives. They have things to do, places to be. Kids are messy. If you want to spend half your life changing your kids' clothes and washing then good for you, but seriously, if you actually notice a child in dirty clothes and have some sort of negative thought - GET A LIFE!!
