drinks lemon juice. Realemon, straight out of the bottle. Weird kid. He says it gives him muscles and makes him dance a jiggly dance.<br><br>
What odd things does your child do?

I don't mean to stray off topic here, but my best friend loved to eat lemons growing up. In the end it ate all the enamel off her teeth and gave her a mouth full of cavities.<br><br>
Sorry - I just couldn't read your post without telling you that straight lemon juice is really bad for teeth.

I was just going to say the same thing. My cousin used to suck them.

My kids do that too. But it's not too often so I don't have to worry about their teeth (actually, I didn't have to worry about their teeth, 'cos I didn't know until reading this thread!!).

Oh, don't worry. He doesn't do it often. Once a month or so (sometimes less, he went the whole summer without doing it) he will just get in the mood for lemons. He usually drinks a bit of lemon in some water.<br>
I drink far more lemon juice than he does. Luckily, my teeth are already terrible and have no enamel, so I don't have to worry about that.

Hmmm... where do I start?<br><br>
My son when he was 3 wore mittens every minute of the day (minus lunch at dc where he was required to take them off) for at least 9 - 12 months straight.<br><br>
He then moved to the pajama top only without tags. Everything else was too itchy.<br><br>
Now, he just eats sticks of butter when i'm not looking and insists on going to the park as luke skywalker.

My 4 year old begs to buy the lemon and lime shaped juices at Trader Joes. I guess thats better than begging for candy LOL!!!<br>
I guess he got that from me...I love lemons dipped in sugar <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"> (and I have very healthy teeth!)<br>
He also does the butter thing! He did NOT get that from me. He always tries to steal sticks of butter at dinner.<br>
My 2 year old is VERY attatched to those tiny hard-covered books you get at Borders or Barnes and Noble. They are adult ones with topics like friendship, family, movie stars, yoga, etc...(any topic you can think of really).<br>
He has to take a collection of them to bed and nap <i>every</i> night.<br>
He has 2 favorites that must be in each hand and 2 others of his choice by his pillow. We co-sleep and I have rolled over on these books too many times to count!

My dd talks to herself while pooping on the potty (I can hear her through the closed door).<br>
She is OBSESSED with checking her toes for "toe cheese"--the minute we enter the house, socks and shoes come off and the in-between-the-toe-examination begins.<br>
She likes to lick the foam off of my lattes.

OMG if this was 1977, he'd be my brother!!!! he also drank salt from the shaker at all possible times- it was always clogged <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/sick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sick">: he officially *changed* his name to Luke in kindergarten & would no longer answer to his own name. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
dd is still technically a toddler, but she's got some stuff of her own already <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> she sings goodnight to her books every night. we've had to limit her to 4 books in bed & she sings to each one before going to sleep <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blahblah.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blah blah"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb"> she eats all of one food at a time from her plate before moving on to the next one. and, when i ask her to sing *quietly*, she will just sing in a very very high pitch <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wild.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wild">

Charlotte (four) walks around the house all the time with a pad of paper and a pen writing 'prescriptions' and giving them out to people (no one in the house is EVEN taking perscription meds and hasn't for months and months and months so I Have no idea where this came from?)

My ds always is sneaking "tastes" of butter! Too funny, but I did this too as a kid.<br><br>
He also likes you to read to him while he is going #2. ?? This didn't come from me though!<br><br>
He also likes to call me by my first name, not mama, or mom, he'll yell to me from across a store...."Hey Shane!!!!"<br><br>
He also likes to mimick me, and dress up in girly things, shoes, dresses, necklaces, rings, etc. , and go around the house saying "Hi, I'm Shane, I'm a girly girl" funny, b/c I am not a real girly girl. It is way too cute though.
