My Toddler Ate Soap

and lived to tell…

I don't always eat soap, but when I do it is the pink kind. 

The caption possibilities for R taking a bite out of the bar-o-soap in the bath the other night are endless. Not exactly sure what she was thinking or maybe she was still hungry. After I freaked out and grabbed the soap from her and put it on the counter - she tried to grab it again during teeth brushing - which I stopped - but she proceeded to lick her soapy hand! So maybe this brand of soap tastes good? This girl is soooooo crazy I cannot even stand it!

Hungry? Why wait {for food when there's soap}?

Point of the story, she did not require a run to the ER or anything like that. Hopefully we can limit all future soap consumption so I don't have to make any phone calls to poison control.

  1. I am trying hard to picture soap tasting well and I am just gagging!

    1. R is INSANE… My sister in law and I have decided that as the only reasonable diagnosis : )

    1. I guess the real question is… at what point do you call poison control? I was not that worried. Now if half the soap had been gone, that would have been a different story!
