I have officially been initiated in to the motherhood tribe. My son had a chocolate milk stain on his face, and my instant inclination was to lick my finger and clean it with my spit.

I am a Jewish mother. This brought back memories of my own childhood, my mother’s hand reaching out to wipe food or beverage remains from my face with her own spit.

It’s not a glamorous job, but someone has got to do it? Has anyone else succumbed to the spit solution? Thoughts?
