All mothers know that babies have an “oral” fixation. It’s natural. They want to chew on things. Usually it is a sign of teething. I was also warned that babies can be picky eaters. They will spit out or throw out whatever they don’t like. But no one warned me of the new vacuum cleaner I was about to receive. Erin has a pretty good pincer grasp. And even though I use a traditional vacuum on a daily basis to keep our floors clean, she still finds things that were left behind. Here’s a list of a few things Erin has managed to digest with or without my knowing:
– Cheerios that rolled under the couch or in a corner
– Old pieces of baked apple and other food on the kitchen floor
– baby sitter’s LONG hair (this seems to only partially come out the other end…I have to ummm…errrr….finish pulling it out for her.
– poop (yes, folks poop….from her diaper….as I was attempting to change it)
Now where is that packing slip that Ping and I can’t seem to find??
