I'm a selfish, horrible mother.

Because *I* absolutely cannot STAND the feeling of chalk, my kids have never played with sidewalk chalk and I will never buy it or allow it in my home. Even the sight of the dust on hands makes my teeth/jaw hurt. It's a really strange phobia that I can't really explain but my kids will miss out because of it. 


I am the same way with stickers, something about the adhesive just makes my skin crawl and the idea of one being stuck to me, Ekk. So my kids don't get stickers. 


I can't be the only mom who projects her irrational aversions onto her children so fess up, what are your kids missing out on because of you?

I'm that way with cotton balls, wet cotton clothes, w-tips which have cotton.

Yet, we have all of it. I just don't touch it.

I had a roommate like this and we jammed her door with cotton balls. We thought it was funny but she was legit terrified! (We are still friends 20 years later.)

I don't buy my kids playdoh... I hate it and they know nothing about it.

I hate hate hate HATE reading aloud to DS. I'm a huge reader, I read everyday. I love books, buying them, collecting them, one click purchasing available on my kindle, all of that. But the idea of reading Dr Seuss aloud to DS makes me cringe.

Playdoh.  I can't deal with the smell, the mess, I hate the shit.  So my kids' playdoh experience was limited.
