Now I let her do all sorts of things.
I let her shred toilet paper all over the house because it keeps her occupied and allows me to do very important things like pay the bills, clean the kitchen, and watch Grey's Anatomy.
I let her have tastes of sweet stuff like chocolate cake and sugary desserts.
I let her go out in public with food in her hair.
I let her lick rocks. Gross, I know. Whatever...I took it away after a couple minutes, okay?
I let her crawl around the house with dirty socks hanging out of her mouth.
I let her watch TV.
I let her play in traffic.
I let her put a pacifier back in her mouth after it's fallen on the floor (without washing it off - the horror!!!).
I let her chomp on jalapenos when her gums hurt from teething.
I let her go to bed without a bath some nights.
Because - ya know, some things just aren't worth getting all worked up over...
