Now I'm worried.

I was half way finished with the washing up when I had a call of nature (I'm 6 months pregnant also, so I am basically living in my bathroom) when my daughter decided to pour herself a drink (this would normally be fine as she NORMALLY leaves it on the side for me to fill the remainder with water...) anyway, this time she decided -because she cannot reach the tap- to fill her cup with dirty dish water +soap. I didn't realise that she had done this and drank it ALL until I had got out of the bathroom. Luckily, or not, the cup she had only holds about 100mls of anything but I am now worried. I've always heard the sink (and everything in it) is miles dirtier than your toilet seat... I've given her a pint of juice to drink down as its the only thing I can think to do... Is she like guaranteed to have gastro for the next 2/3 days because of this or should she be okay? Children eh!

Ah she'll probably be fine. Even though- yuck!!

Mine has stealth-sucks of the dishcloth whenever she gets her hands on it and it hasn't caused any vomiting yet (except possibly me at the thought of it).

The things they do. Honestly. <<shakes head>> grin

DS2 survived drinking water from the water butt at the allotment! Hope she's OK.
