Daughter of the soil

I had a big fight with Alice this morning. I cut her off after only 2 full sippy cups of milk, insisting that she eat some solid food before she could have more milk. Alice cried a couple of times about this, on and off. At one point she decided that she wanted to go outside, so every got their shoes and socks on (except Poly) and out we went. Alice headed to the chewed up grass and immediately started snarfing down some dirt. Apparently that’s what’s for breakfast in Alice-world. Sadly, in Daddy-world, dirt doesn’t count as solid food and so Alice still didn’t get her milk.

eating soil can sometimes be a sign that she’s missing certain minerals in her diet.

Possible, since she seems to eat so little solid food. On the other hand, she likes dirt as dirt and is happy to spend time playing with it even if she can’t eat it.
