Fun fact: chewable animal shaped probiotics are apparently as addictive to a two year old as playing Minecraft on crack.
Not that I've seen that many two year old crack-smoking Minecraft junkies. This is Washington. All of our two year olds smoke pot.
But I digress: Edie is INCREDIBLY addicted to probiotics, which she adorably refers to as "pro-nuggets." As in, "Baby needs her pro-nuggets, Daddy", as she nervously scratches her arm and stares through me...
The first thing she asks for when I come into her room in the morning? "Pro-nuggets in my bowl, daddy?" The first thing she asks for when we get home from daycare? "Pro-nuggets in my bowl, daddy?" She'll stand next to you in the kitchen jumping up and down, waving her arms, with a huge smile on her face yelling "PRO-NUGGETS!" whenever you appear to be approaching the general probiotic staging area.
I'd say this can't be good, but there is plenty of research suggesting you can't overdo this stuff. In fact, I'll bet her "gut flora" could kick my ass.
After which she would calmly step over me, pull my wallet out of my pocket, lean down and caress my cheek and say, "Don't worry, Daddy, Baby just needs her pro-nuggets."
