    He once also took all the clothes from our dryer and climbed in thinking he was so clever. Scared the life out me then too as if the door closed it would have switched on automatically.

    They Ate Dirt, Hated It, And Decided To Eat More

    From Redditor u/Megssister:

    My toddler and I were out watering the garden, and she comes up to me with her tongue out, complaining about dirt in her mouth. I wiped her tongue on my shirt and she seemed satisfied.

    She then squats down, gets a handful of rocks and dirt, and dumps it all in her mouth.

    At least she's pretty.
