My little snacker was about to use the bathroom when she noticed a Cheerios which had somehow found its way into her underwear. Before I had time to react she popped it in her mouth.
“A Cheerios in my underwear Mom!”
“I ate it.”
And to think I used to wash her pacifiers which fell on the floor. . .
Her mouth has been found with someone’s used gum, sand, bath water, and even her own boogers (this one makes me shudder). Just today I heard her squealing with laughter to discover her wetting and sucking on an old sponge.
When it comes to eating something a little nutritious, however, like broccoli hidden under piles of cheese, her mouth is suddenly glued shut.
How can a child who immediately puts anything chocked full of germs into her mouth be such a picky little eater when it comes to real food?
Alas, I think I may start throwing celery and carrot sticks on the ground when we are out. At least then I know she will be unable to refuse the tempting bite!
