I caught DD (13 years old) eating trash

After dinner I walked in on my 13 year old DD eating trash out of the kitchen sink. While I was prepping dinner I dumped a bunch of strawberry tops that I had sliced off in the sink. I then set the dog bowl in the sink to soak because I couldn't get all the food off of it. Then I washed my hands over top of all of that.

She ate 3 meals today and had a decent afternoon snack, but seriously! RIGHT after dinner she was eating the strawberry tops (green leafy part) out of the sink. They were obviously covered in old, wet dog food and soap bubbles.

Face.Palm.

Hm Maybe she just really wanted strawberries.  You know sometimes we crave salty stuff because our body needs it.  Maybe she was craving strawberries because she needs more vitamins.

Maybe she's just not as choosy as the rest of us? LOL

There was an entire bowl of washed and cut up strawberries leftover from dinner! If you're going to eat strawberries...why not eat the clean non-trash strawberries? Ugh....
