Mom FAIL

Sign that you've officially given up on being Mom of the Year: You let your one-year-old son eat a cupcake wrapper, at first because he cried when you took it away, then, because you've eaten one before and it didn't kill you, and lastly, just to see if he could eat the whole thing. (He could and did).

Are we talking paper or foil?

Paper. I'm not a monster

Kids eat boogers. Paper seems tame in comparison.

Was there frosting on the paper? If there wasn't any frosting then you are a monster!!

I agree with my mom - frosting makes anything edible.
And think of all the roughage! It's good for his pooper. See? Being Pollyanna has it's benefits.

That's awesome. Brooke ate part of a nerds box once and it came out the other end perfectly legible.

Piper ate the fortune out of a fortune cookie once...I wonder what it said.

I have to un-Lurk to say... when the cake is especially moist and sticky, the wrapper becomes just another part of the dish! It IS chock full of fiber, and I've done it before, myself. I say well done, Harrison, on being frugal in these tough economic times! Nicely played, Renee. :)

Thanks for getting that paper is just another vehicle for frosting consumption. I don't know why I had any reason to doubt that you guys would understand that.

P.S, I think it hurt on its way out. He was ANGRY today. I don't feel good about myself.
