If you have, I probably think less of you. I haven't watched it but I have been exposed to some horrifying trailers that make me think less of man-kind. Now however, I might be forced to watch... when someone comes to interview me for the show.
"So Emma, Where do you think you went wrong as a Mother?"
Sobbing... "I just don't understand. He started out as a normal baby. I did bathe him every day. I had read not to do it every night because their skin could dry out but ... hiccup...he just liked it so much. I followed all the precautions! I even bought all natural soaps and lotions from health food stores for his sensitive skin.
"So, what you're saying is, you deliberately exposed your son to exotic and expensive soaps at an early age?"
"It wasn't like that!"
"I see... well how else would attribute William's sick obsession to ingest soap?!!"
Okay so that is an over exaggeration but it is concerning none the less. They say the first step in overcoming a problem is to admit it. My son eats soap. WHY?!!
More importantly what am I going to wash his mouth out with as a threat?
Not that any sane person would ever do that these days.
Fact: William will play with any and all soap containers. He prefers pump bottles which I didn't see any harm in (he doesn't push them down) until I saw him sucking the soap up like a straw.
One day while I was getting ready, William followed me into the bathroom. The bathroom is usually a strict baby-free zone with the exception of bath-time or brushing teeth. He stood up at the tub, grabbed his baby soap, and started playing with it. Because it didn't have a pump and I thought he wasn't strong enough to unscrew the top, I left the bathroom. I had one minute left of getting ready- apply some mascara and leave... he would be okay. I returned to find the lid off and two thirds of the bottles contents on the floor, bath mat, and ALL OVER William. Most alarming? He was eating it. My son who cried when I gave him a home made french fry was eating soap. Where is the reason??!!
Because I don't have any pictures of William eating soap (I'm usually correcting this behavior and not taking the time to grab the camera) You'll have to settle on some tub time photos
Any other soap lovers out there? Support groups? Imitation soap supplements that are high in nutritional value?
