Bubbles Aren't Fun Dip

There's an overwhelming consensus that women forget about the physical pain of labor as a defense mechanism designed to make sure we have more babies. 

I seem to have blocked out the pesky phase in Abbey's life when she ate everything and anything she could get into her little hands.  I don't mean the phase where she happily ate a wide variety of foods, because I'm still waiting for that one.  I mean the phase where she liked to nosh on non-food items.

Dylan has gleefully galloped into that phase with open arms, an open mouth, and little fists clenched around anything I don't want near his mouth.

I vaguely remember having to watch Abbey in stores to make sure she wasn't picking up things from the shelves to eat.  But mostly, it's a hazy memory of a cute little girl investigating the world around her.

That memory is a lie.

Because this phase?  The eating everything in sight phase?  This phase is disgusting.

In Macy's, he bent down to find a half-eaten Oreo under a display.  I tackled him before he got it in his mouth. (Aunt Jessica witnessed that one, lucky her!)

At the park, he munches on sticks and wood chips and grass.

Outside, he delicately licks stones and dandelions and my keys.

In our driveway, he samples sidewalk chalk and bubbles.

He's learned the word "yuck", because I say it each time I remove an offending object from his hand or his mouth.

I think he has the meaning confused with "yum".

I hope this isn't a long phase.

Yuck.

hmm, looks interesting
this little stick is kind of like a spoon
tastes a little like my bath toys
because I like chewing on those, too

    Ha, this is soooo funny! I love the "yuck"/"yum" confusion and that he likes his bubble wand like a lollipop! Boys are gross. :-)

    This made me laugh so much! My little guy was such a taster too. I remember the day he was about to put a dead fly into his mouth, but I dashed across the room to grab his little fist in time. Ooky!

    I saw your title and said to myself "since when?" Thats what my kids think bubbles are!


    It is such a gross stage. My son came in with a mouthful of sand the other day. It's just gross.

    It's funny you say that because my OM told me that exact thing. That Mother Nature grants us New Mom Amnesia to ensure that we'll continue the human race!

    I remember this too and it totally grossed me out. Even now they love to try to drink bath water...I mean c'mon!!!! This is one reason that I don't mind them not giving up the nuk yet...at I know where that has been and if it's in..nothing else goes in. LOL ;)

    You know what's also really tasty? Cigarette butts. Yum.

    The other day we were in Macy's, and I saw him bend over and pick something up. In slow motion, I leaped at him in time to knock the half eaten Oreo out of his hand.

    Cigarette butts are in our future; I just know it :(

    So true! We just remember the snuggly, sleepy babies that open their eyes only to coo and smile.

    I try to remember it's their way of exploring the world. Something, though, I think, "You won't eat an orange, but wood chips soaked in rain water are ok?"

    Oh no! Good catch Mama!

    Seriously. He says "yuck" with a giant grin and just keeps on eating.
