Me: Oh! Get that out of your mouth. What is that???
4yo: …
Me: Oh. That's your tongue. Don't get it out of your mouth. Keep it in there.

The 4yo still chews on all sorts of random things, so…

@benhamill I thought my offspring's "pick random shit off the ground and eat it" phase was over, when I caught him eating berries fallen from decorative shrubs. You're in your "no veggies or fruit" phase and yet berries of questionable province and edibility crushed underfoot on the sidewalk is haute cuisine?! Fortunately he's also pretty good about spitting out whatever it is when I hold out a hand.

@benhamill idk how any of us survive into adulthood- oh yeah, frazzled parents and a whole bunch of horrified adults XD
