It must be an acquired taste.

I have never had a child really gravitate to eating one certain thing. Of course something they really shouldn't be chowing down on anyway. Know what I mean?? For example:

Baby M loves to eat crayons. SERIOUSLY!! You cannot leave a crayon anywhere because she can sniff it out like a blood hound and start her afternoon snack!

It's comical. I will set the girls up and give her ONLY one crayon to color with. She loves to color ALMOST as much as she loves to eat her crayon. I can turn my head for a second and a big hunk will be gone. Including the paper on the crayon. She'll be chewing as she smiles at you with her "innocent" smile.

I've even had to floss her little bitty baby teeth to get the crayon paper OUT from between them!!!! Honest, I have. ~shaking head~

I cannot keep her from coloring. So, I am guessing she will grow out of this crayon eating phase!!!! At least they aren't toxic. Or I hope so anyway...

My aunt use to buy me craons and the first thind she would tell me is I could eat them they were non-toxic...or how ever you spell it...lol

But I loved to color but hated to mess up the perfect point on each on so I had to turn each one to color evenly on every side to even out the point...

Some fun huh?lol
