Okay, what is THIS about???

Margaret has a new habit. She makes herself throw up. I guess that she finds it interesting... I find it horrible though I try not to give it too much attention.

How does Margaret do it, you ask? She sticks her whole hand in her mouth, fingers fully extended. Gagging is usually followed by throwing up. If it isn't she wiggles her hand around until she gets the desired effect.

Sometimes I catch her in the act. Sometimes she leads me to the scene of the crime by pointing and saying "blaaaach". (she can do this in almost complete silence)

Has anyone ever heard of another toddler doing this? I know they are weird animals and are likely to do just about anything. But as hard as I work to get food INTO her, I hate to see her making it come out this way.

Oh no. I hope she grows out of this toddler habit!

Ava has done the exact same thing sporadically fot the past few months! I don't really understand it- and who would think that they could fit their entire hand in their mouth!
