This isn't as gross as it looks. Little Mister has a talent for dragging dirt in from outside. Rocks, potting debris, dry foliage. It has all found it's way into the house this month. When it started to escalate I set up the vacuum cleaner and it hasn't been put away for over a week.
So what is this? We have a tree stump in the backyard. Little Mister has turned it into a chew toy, evidently. He must have dragged in a big chunk of bark. After a thorough chewing, this is what was left. I hope the little guy doesn't start throwing up again.
And here is Little Mister looking over his handiwork. No shame spiral for him. His look says it all.
"Hey. I'm a baby. This is what I do."
