Yesterday I asked my daughter why she had to bite everything. Her reply was “you do the same mom. I guess it’s like mother like daughter”. Her answer was the absolute truth and I was surprised that she’d noticed. I always pride myself in not being a nail biter though I do ‘trim’ my cuticles with my teeth.
When I thought about all the things I bite it’s no wonder I’ve got endless problems with my teeth. Apart from my newly diagnosed nocturnal grinding and subsequent need for a retainer. I bite as many inedible articles as I can.
Here is my list of offending articles:
1. Bottle tops
2. Clothing tags
3. Sweet wrappers
I’m certain there are many more items I can’t recall at the moment. The bottom line is I need to kick this habit before it starts including rocks and sand!
