Luckily for us, our 15 month old hasn't done anything grosser than play in the compost pile once--mostly just crushing eggshells. I have clear memories myself of playing the "potty water" game with my older brother when I was probably 2, which consisted of lowering a finger slowly into the toilet until you touch the water, then raising it slowly to your mouth. . . BLECH! It gives me the shudders thinking of it now, but I apparently survived with no ill effects.

A friend of ours once told us the three grosses things his son had put in his mouth: cat puke, dead fly, toilet brush. Kids are pretty resiliant, I guess.

My DD once ate a chunk of hairy dog crap at the park.

My DS is a flip-flop licker, and lately we have been catching him taking a cup and scooping water out of the toilet to drink, flushed or not.

Id say thats grosser!!!!!!

When DD was 2, she found something brown and dry on the floor, took a bite, and asked, AS SHE WAS GOING FOR A 2ND BITE, "Is this poop?"

My second did that. Sometimes I think on purpose, if she got bored.

It's not that the stay-at-home-parent gets to stay home with the kids. The kids get to stay home with a parent. Lucky Mom to DD1 (4 y) and DD2 (18 mo), Wife to Mercenary Dad

I think every small child in the south eats one at some point. I am always hearing stories about that here. Blech. My mom says my brother did the same thing as a toddler.

2 yr old DS had poop smeared across his top lip one day, I'm sure some went in.

Yesterday I took him out of his carseat (rear-facing) only to discover he had been chewing on his well worn croc - the bottom was completely licked clean...eeww

He is a hair eater. Luckily at home I know it's mine, but he'll eat any hair he drives me crazy.

On our walk yesterday he decided to try to lick random walls for fun...
