Please tell me your child has done something equally as gross...

So....we let DS run around naked most of the time. Sometimes we get pee in the potty, sometimes we get it on the floor. We've gotten really used to either

Well, the other day he was playing with a can of something (some food he pulled out of the pantry) and started peeing. Before we could clean it up he looked down, saw that there was liquid sitting in the top of the can...

AND DRANK IT.


I laughed until I cried....and then I was grossed out. *sigh* At least it was sterile, right? It's gotta be better than when he puts toilet water in his mouth.

DS went through a phase where he would pee on the floor, then bend over and lap it up like a dog. We had to nip that one quick.

He doesn't lap it up...he does like to splash in it like it's his own personal water park..

This doesn't involve pee (which should be sterile) but it totally grossed me out.

A while back my daughter found an unidentifiable piece of (?)food on the bottom of her grubby little foot, pulled it off, and ATE IT! I didn't even know what the thing had originally been, and her foot was really dirty.

When my son was just 16 months we went to visit my parents and my mom was supposed to be watching him while I went out to the car... I come back in to find her in the kitchen and he comes running in with chocolate all over his face... I yell at mom for giving my baby chocolate and she turns around all confused and says she doesn't even have any chocolate....
BUT she does have a litterbox.....

I never expected to call the VET for my toddler!!!!
Thankfully neither he nor the cat had worms

EWWWWW....

My dd managed to grab a little handful of poo out of her diaper last year and put it in her mouth. She immediately looked at me horrified and started grabbing at her tongue. I'm glad it only took once for her to figure out that wasn't a good idea. She now tells me that poopy says, 'RARRRRRRR'! lol

last month DD2 was without a diaper and wejust lost track of time. she was happily playing in the kitchen. All of a sudden I hear my mom start shreiking. I run in the kitchen, there is Anna poop covering a large portion of the floor, mashed into the grout of her tile and all in her mouth. She was MAD when I tried to clean it out. LMAO. Kids are weird.

Hi, my name is Gina and my older son is a booger eater.

Not as gross, but probably more germy than drinking pee- ds licks the dog whenever he can. He doesn't seem to mind the hair in his mouth.

ds does this too. If he sees us get a cloth to clean it up, he plays frantically to get as much "water time" as he can.

Ok you all just made me feel MUCH better about DD 18 mo loving to plunge forward in the kiddie pool (which is a disturbing cloudy bluish grey colored water) and come up gulping the water! I was seriously worried she was drinking who knows how much baby pee (and adult pee, and nasty cholrine, and who knows what else)... but if little ones can survive eating cat poo and their own poo, I guess I really don't need to worry!

You've also made me feel bad that DD never gets to run around naked, which she clearly likes for the few minutes she ever does. I worry she'll pee/poo somewhere and I won't notice it until it starts to smell!

Hehe, dd peed in my stockpot last night but at least she didn't drink it. I think the grossest thing so far is picking up a dead vole that had obviously been there awhile.

DS stuck his hand in a public toilet and then licked his fingers

All I could think of to do was wash his hands with a tonne of soup and nurse him to clean his mouth!

DS2 went though about a six month obsession with digging around in his diaper right after he pooped. And I mean RIGHT after, where there's really no way I could have intercepted it. He was over a year old, probably about 18 months, and mobile, and he wasn't attached to me 24/7 anymore. Oh, it was so disgusting.... Ugh! Walls, floor, the tv, toys, sometimes his face/mouth..... Ick!

oh good heavens! My son is only 9 months old, and the toddler forum terrifies me!

I was letting DS have some nakey time, and wasn't watching him closely enough. I don't know if any poop got in his mouth, but it was all over *everywhere*!!! hair, legs face ugh!

DS1 ate a dead, dried-up palmetto bug (a.k.a., "giant flying cockroach') when he was of crawling age. I was somewhat hysterical as I retrieved the pieces out of his mouth and tried to wipe the legs off his tongue....nothing creeps me out more than those particular bugs. :Puke

I'm going to remember this the next time I'm feeling about my dd getting upset at splashing water on her shirt.

The other day we were out on our deck and it was time to come in and I noticed DD had something in her hand and it looked like a pebble, DD has a thing for rocks and stones, so I didn't really think much of it until we were inside and I noticed she had something in her mouth and the pebble was gone, so I did a search and rescue mission in her mouth and it turns out it was bird poop! Oh so gross! But I think I got most of it!

My kiddos are now 16, 14 and 11 so we have seen plenty of gross stuff. I once came out of a stall at a restaurant bathroom to find dd sucking on the thing on the wall that keeps the knob from putting a hole in the wall. It was just her height. Ds1 was known to peelmgum off the bottom of tables and eat it and was also know to eat his schnoogies. We were talking about what a healthy kid he is just this winter and be smiles and says "I guess eating your own boogers builds up your immunity". Thankfully if ds2 has done anything gross, I don't know about it

DD also pees on the floor during nakey time and stamps around in it until we manage to grab a towel to clean it up.

She also has a wierd fascination with seeing her poop. When we change a poopy diaper, she insists on seeing the poop before we flush it in the toilet. Ehh, if that's the worst she does with poop, I will be very happy.

On the gross factor - DD was sitting in my lap naked one day, slice of cheese in one hand, my cell phone in the other hand. She and I sang some songs and then we talked to each other. Needless to say, a week later, I was going through my voice memos on my cell phone in front of my mom. I ran across one of DD and I singing songs and played it for my mom, cause it was so sweet and adorable. But at the end, my voice is loud and clear - "No Sara, you can't put cheese in your vagina." Talk about embarassing! Sara had apparently hit the record memo button on my phone and caught the entire thing on tape...oh, the things you never thought you'd hear yourself say!

The very first day that DS learned to crawl, he crawled right over to the dog bed and put our dog's gross old bone in his mouth. We found him across the room, happily chewing away.

A few weeks ago I caught him picking a piece of chicken poop of DH's shoe and trying to eat that.

He's also very fond of pulling fists full of hair off of the dog and shoving them in his mouth...
