Apparently, biting your baby's finger is normal?

Last night, I went over to my friend's house to help while her husband is working 4 days a week in Portland. She claimed her baby was fussy and boy was she right (sorry Shawn). It may be because the father of the child is away and she senses this.". There is nothing wrong with a needy baby -- in fact, what a reassuring thing for a mother! It really wasn't that bad because Shawn knew what to do each time. It gave me confidence.

I'm digressing. That's not why I'm here. I have a funny story to tell. After the little Pig Penny was asleep, my friend and I were chatting. She went upstairs to get me something and while she was up there, Pig Penny woke up. I picked her up and we started playing. Next thing you know, the kid puts her fingers in my mouth and BAM -- I bit her on accident. Man, I felt so bad, I even cried but her mother explained, biting your kid is normal and she was shocked for about 30 seconds and then wanted to go back to sleep.

I tried to find an e-card that said "Sorry I bit your kid" but apparently, they aren't a hot commodity.

Um, there's nothing normal about biting your baby's finger (or any body part for that matter).

Sorry you did that on accident. Regularly, hmmm, that's not normal?!

Ha that is funny. Don't worry I'm sure that little girl will bite you back someday. Mar is already trying to chew on my fingers.

No one said its normal...but I think its pretty safe to say that we all (parents of the world) have made similar mistakes depending on our babies. Sarah (the Pigpen in question) loves to stick her fingers in people's mouths...its bound to happen often enough until she stops it. It was a funny and sweet moment...not a big deal...

I have bitten her on accident a few times...I have also accidently konked her head on the refridgerator door...accidents happen and I am not afraid to admit it.
