Why are there teeth marks in my deodorant?

I suspect my two year old has something to do with that. Yes, the same two year old that somehow managed  to get her hands on some toothpaste and eat a quarter of a tube. This was of course followed by a frantic call to her pediatrician and poison control, who informed me that a fair number of children eat toothpaste and that if it is less than half a tube or so, they usually don't need medical care. Which makes me wonder why they have the warnings all over toothpaste saying that poison control should be contacted if "more than is used for brushing" is swallowed. Anyway, I'm told by my parents that when I was a child, they would find my teethmarks in blocks of cheese and the butter, so I kind of understand the compulsion to bite into things, but deodorant? I mean, sure, toothpaste is almost a food item, all minty and delicious, but  as delicious as my tropical scented deodorant may smell, I imagine it tastes awful. Then again, I've never tasted it, so who knows? I'll have to ask her when she wakes up from her nap, where she is, no doubt, dreaming about which hygiene product she should sink her teeth into next.

Blogger Beginnings

So, I've decided to start a blog. Not because I have anything particularly useful or interesting to say, nor do I expect anyone to actually read it, but frankly, it beats talking to myself and its just so darn trendy. Also, occasionally, interesting things do happen  to me, and my husband gets really annoyed when I share a story with him after the 10th time or so. I know this because he interrupts me to let me know he has already heard it, and then we have to argue about it because I really hate when he does that. The nice thing about a blog is that I can write about an experience, and you only have to be exposed to it once, unless (a.) you choose to read it again, or (b.) you know me personally, in which case you're just out of luck.

So, thus I begin my life as a blogger. Maybe. I have a tendency to start things, do them for a little while, and then quit. So, let's see how it goes......
