i wash my hands a lot, and encourage my family to do the same. maybe i am ultra sensitive after so many years of working in the food service industry. i know that it is especially important this time of year, as the kids go back to school and enter the germ-sharing population again.
jack is somewhat of a handwashing master. his Montessori school has done a fantastic job of teaching not only the benefits of handwashing, but also the various steps of handwashing. i thought i would snap a quick spt with him. it turned out to be a valuable lesson (for ME) on each of the proper steps. (he was insistent that i include a photo of each of the steps in this post!) he has not missed any school, due to illnes, in over 2 years. he could be a poster child for the benefits of keeping your hands clean!
if only we could have this much fun teaching all of life's important lessons...
do you wash your hands as much as jack does?
