I've always wondered what thread on BH would be about me... today I've decided it's going to be about my barefooted kids walking around while I wear shoes.
Can I cite cultural reasons? My kids are half Hori, no shoes is a pre-requisite... or does this mean they should wear one shoe?
So yes, people really do that!
Hahaha! This thread has been fun to read
I'm pretty sure poo itself is absolutely choc-o-block writhing FULL of germs. Yep, there is a known-germ versus stranger's-germs factor, but if you really needed to in an emergency, I see no problem with toilet floor/footpath/wherever, probably would not pick the wet puddle that may contain suspect loogies/cigarette butts etc. Take the kid home after and give them a wash to eliminate the worry about transmitting germs from their behind to their mouths/eyes etc later on if they go in for a bit of a scratch.
I also am not a hoverer at public toilets. It's my bum, not my face touching the seat And yep, I'd probably sit on a foot path normally if I needed to.
As for the protecting the eyeballs of the innocent, ok I'd try be a little discrete because poo is not really something anyone goes out of their way to look at but at the end of the day, nappies and poo are a reality of life and emergencies happen.
Ive never taken dd out barefoot. Not judging others but im a bit of a germaphobe. Eeekkk. All those shoes walking around who.knows where they have been. And yeh blood, spit and goodness knows what else it would make me too anxious lol!!

I HATE it when strangers in the supermarket think its ok to touch my baby, especially her face or hands. I then have to wash her down.
I will not wear bare feet in public and would never let my children. There is a reason feet get black when walking on car parks or in supermarkets barefoot, it's because it's dirty.
We have a 'no shoes in the house' rule. Why would I allow all the cr@p from outside to be walked into my house where the girls play?!
I hover in public toilets even after I wipe the toilet seat down and then line it- yes I take 3 precautions!
I find hovering disturbing on toilets seats lol...more chance for your business to get all over seat. I always wipe down toilet seat and around bowl in public toilets even if a cleaner has just finished from there...and always look under rim...
