You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance. -Franklin P Jones
My one year old loves to eat paper products: Paper towels, toilet paper rolls, Dixie cups, napkins, grocery lists, etc. Whatever she can get her sticky little fingers on in the 2.8 seconds my back is turned goes straight into her mouth. I used to worry about this, now I don’t. I used to think she would choke or get sick, now I don’t. I realize that if I don’t immediately try to save her from the paper monsters, she gets bored and discards the paper products. Besides, paper comes from plants so technically, she got her dose of vegetables for the day! I’m not a writing a book on parenting, I’m just trying to get by.
