I took our kids swimming today at our local pool, (their first day being open) and as I was sitting in the kiddy pool with my 3y/o. I noticed this young boy about the same age as mine playing away with TONS of snot oozing out of his nose. My kids have had runny noses before...but this kid had a runny nose sooooo bad and the mother just let him play anyways. I was so grossed out I got out immediatly and took my 3y/o to play withh is older siblings in the bigger pool. Few minutes later guess who followed us in!!!!! My gosh I was sooo grossed out. My hubby had mentioned something to a lady that worked there (as he didn't want to be the one to hurt her feelings) and they brought the mom lots of tissues to wipe his nose with. However she only did that once as soon as the tissues came. The rest of the time she let him play with snot hanging over his mouth and getting in the pool. I was mortified! I would not let my kids in the water like that. So we left the pool Sorry about this rant, but it frustrated me. How would you moms to be handle that situation? And would you let your child in the pool with that bad of a runny nose?
