i blame uncle gavan for this….

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:

toesuck

 

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!

Disgusting... but oh so cute!

Funny. Off the subject of toes, I absolutely love those adorable pigtails!

Ha! So cute. Cole went through that phase. It just lasted a couple weeks I think. At least you caught in on camera so when she denies it in 10 years you can show her proof.

oh she looks so cute...but it does make you wonder why some little ones like to suck or chew on their toes..sean did it for a short time as i recall. i bet she was probably bored a bit while in the car...gave her something to do :)

For Heidi it lasted more than a couple weeks. I thought she was the only one that did that. So funny.

yeah, nice! feet? are you joking? that is pretty gross, with how much my girls don't wear shoes if they did this they would get a nasty disease for sure!

Mmmmmmmm, toe jam.

Maybe toes are salty and delicious? I must say...she looks adorable even while snacking on her toes.

It's cute when they're little and have cute feet. But when they get bigger, like your brother, that's definitely gross! I bet you never thought you'd have to break THAT habit with any of your kids!

Okay that is yucky but she is so darn cute I can't be disgusted by it. You could always try safety pinning socks to her pants...it worked for thumb sucking:)

My, what a multi-talented child. And limber too! We would all be more healthy if we were that limber.

Wow, she could be a fitness trainer at 24 Hour Fitness! :-)

Is that my little girl in pigtails? She looks so cute! My goodness, she is the perfect mixture of Nani and Lala,with her own little style thrown in!

Tell her to keep chomping! :-)

Gone are the days when I was that flexible...and I really don't want to try to put my toes in my mouth anyway! :)

I love the pig-tails.
