I can understand dirt but not onion

Yes. We have a boy on our hands- he loves to eat dirt. I can understand this infatuation its seems pretty common among the babes.  But then one day he took a bite out of the bar of soap- swallowed it and didn't even flinch. I watch in disgust and thought, 'now that is pushing it a little.' 

However, to top it off, he was screaming at me today as I was chopping raw onions, to give him some. I handed over the raw slice of onion thinking, 'you'll be sorry for screaming at me and you'll see how much you 'really' wanted it.' But he chewed, sucked, swallowed and asked for more. I was  floored.
 SO then I handed him his sippy cup to wash down that onion with his ever so hard to drink milk that he despises,  and he squirms, then gags and spits it back out... and that folks just leaves me speechless. One day he'll learn to love his milk. 


 Do I need to explain this picture or do the teeth marks give it away?








 There is his leftovers from his dirt- but see how he smiles he scrunches his nose. it is to die for.

oh his face is just precious! Being a mom is the coolest thing in the world - i mean, being able to look at those faces all day long?? We are lucky people.

And that is too funny about the soap and the onion - my niece was the same way. We used to find her spraying perfume in her mouth and sucking on lysol bottles. Makes no sense whatsoever..

As a mom to two boys myself, boys are a bundle of fun! Time goes by too fast though.

Your son looks so cute. I remember my son, aged 2 drinking a bottle of Calpol (baby medicine with Paracetamol!!!). A frantic dash to the hospital and after tests he was okay. I thought the bottle was well out of reach. Wrong!!!
He is 20 now and studying Film Production and Media so it didn't do him too much harm. In fact he is doing his first shoot of a music band this afternoon for some of their promotion
I found your lovely blog by seeing something about Brandons photography (linked from something else about Donny as I am still a huge fan after nearly 40m years)
As my son is doing photography too I thought he would like to see Brandons professional photos
By the way I loved the photos and post about your dear sister Shea
hugs Sarah

Oh man that is just disgusting. I can't believe he ate that soap. The onion is bad but ooohh soap? Daxton you are one crazy kid.

Haha what a silly boy. I think dirt's perfectly normal. Secretly I still sometimes want to eat it, but soap? Now that's just disgusting. Guess you'll never be able to wash his mouth out with soap. He'll enjoy it too much.

Dont worry, Daxton just has a inquistive mind - a good sign of intelligence. When my youngest started talking he would repeatedly ask "Whats that, can I eat it?" We caught him 'tasting' moss off the garden wall once ! eeww....
Daxton really is a sweetie xx

ok. So when he ate the soap did he pee bubbles? Kinda gross but just wondering :)

Terri said...
