Home Spun comic strip #506
Of my three children, Sierra was the only one who put everything in her mouth. I kept the house much neater before she became a major contributor to the mess, but she could always find the one little bead that rolled to the corner of the room. In her mouth it would go. It wasn't long after she started learning to use markers that we realized she would suck on them (luckily, we were already in the habit of locking up permanent markers). For some reason, it was usually the green marker. Thinking back, she reminds me of a character in the book Saffy's Angel by Hilary McKay. The youngest child in the story, Permanent Rose, has a habit of tasting her paints as she uses them. Just like my little artist!
