my older brother, gavan, was always a big nail biter when we were kids. he would bite until there was no nail left to bite and then he would gnaw at the skin around it. my mom at one point tried getting him to stop by painting that yucky tasting nail “polish” on his fingers, but i don’t think it worked.
if that wasn’t bad enough, i think it is a disgusting habit, there were times when we were watching tv and i would hear these loud crunching noises, only to turn around and see him chomping on his toenails!!! YUCK! remembering the sound and seeing the image in my mind makes me gag!
so, you can imagine my horror when i turned around in the car and saw this:
okay, so i wasn’t horrified. actually, i laughed, finding it quite humerous and said, “nice!” and turned to mitch and said, “look at what YOUR daughter is doing!”
i want to know what the thought process is for a child who ends up with her toes in her mouth . i mean, really. is she just sitting there thinking, “hmmm, my toes look like little sausages. i wonder what they taste like?” and then decides to give them a taste?? i just don’t get it!
bon appétit my sweet child!
