Kids do the strangest things...

A several of you know, we've been struggling with a food reaction with Jacob for about 4 weeks now. I thought I had it figured out, but he is continuing to react, many times after I think his diet has been safe all day.

Well tonight he wanted me to brush Mattie's teeth, so he brought me the toothpaste. I noticed it was empty and was quite surprised. Robert and I thought it through and it's only been a week. That means 4 oz has disappeared in a week...and it hasn't been all over the counter. So after much urging he sheepishly admitted he was eating the toothpaste to make his teeth shiny! Eek!


So the toothpaste company will be my first call tomorrow morning!!! I do hope this is it...at least then I'd know we weren't crazy!!

(I found the ingredients online and there is definitely corn...ingredients I'd never have given him if I knew he was going to EAT it!!) Hopefully his reactions will go away now...

Oh no! At least he admitted it to you...I probably would have never gotten that out of my girls. :)
