At first I thought it was only little boys that were extremely gross creatures. And then I started blogging and realized there are all kinds of icky toddlers out there who just don’t belong to me.
All ages, colors, genders…
It was kind of a relief… but I totally feel bad for all the other parents out there who have really gross kids too. I mean there is nothing worse than having a friend, family member, or even a stranger witness them pick up something incredibly disgusting and shove it in their mouth and swallow before you have the chance to pry it out of their bear trap type jaw while fighting back your urge to vomit.
You know you have been there… we all have!
I asked the readers to submit the grossest thing their kids have eaten and while some were pretty icky… some of them put me totally over the edge. I am wondering how I held back my gag reflex long enough to actually write this.
Oh the joys that come with motherhood right?
I thought the fact that my oldest son used to hide under the table in restaurants and try to eat the nasty gum under the table was bad. But he has nothing on some of the other kids my readers have.
Oh and if you think you can top any of these be sure to leave a comment with the grossest thing your toddler has decided was a delicacy.
