    Yes! So why would they not have self respect if they play in mud?

    I find your parallel between absence of mud play and self respect odd. I think kids can understand that if they get dirty they are still great people, just great people who need a bath.
    Ummm ewww. Open pores breed bacteria. Bacteria = acne.

    I'm still trying to think of scenario where my undies end up on the floor of a public bathroom...

    Mud fans here, DD and DS love to jump in muddy puddles! They also love their sand pit and trampoline where I have to hose or brush off all the wildlife poo every so often. It is healthy for kids to have exposure to germs - germs are not all bad and make you ill, there are plenty of good germs and by sanitising our lives we are actually doing ourselves and our children a dis-service.

    I've never wiped a public toilet seat in my life - either for myself or my kids.

    My DD's current undie stash is 100% second hand thanks to a certain generous Forum Manager with a DD a couple of years older than mine. DD and DS both wore second hand MCNs too. I doubt I ever had a single disposable nappy on my bottom - being the youngest I would have only hand the terry flats mum had used for the older siblings and they probably 2nd hand when she got them.

    DS in particular has the immunity of a horse. In 2.5 years of school he has had I think 3 days (tops) off school due to illness.

    There's that old thing about how parents clean the dummy for subsequent children if it drops on the floor:
    1st child - dummy is cleaned and sterilized before returning to child
    2nd child - dummy is washed under hot water before returning to child
    3rd child - dummy is wiped on parent's leg before returning to child

    I always thought pimples and blackheads occur when pores become blocked with oil and dead skin cells....not dirt.

    So you're telling me my DS who is 15 has acne because he played in mud as a small child?! It has absolutely nothing to do with puberty? Family history? Just that he played in mud when he was 5?

    Don't. Think. So.

    To answer the original question I probably would have binned it but I am also a hesitant public restroom user, I go as far as flushing the first few sheets of toilet paper because I hate thinking about what hands touched it before me. As for a mud play my kids LOVE mud play every time after it rains DH, the kids and I all run around the back yard splashing having mud fights (the neighbours think we are nuts) and DD is going through puberty but I have instilled a good facial cleansing routine with her so she doesn't get black heads. Oh and all my children have a lot of self respect even though they play with dirt
