polluxdc tells us more.
OP here. Yeah, I was joking, they aren't always the most sophisticated of jokes, but it gives one a sense of where the kid may or may not be coming from. The kid, unfortunately, was not joking, and I had to explain a few things to her. Thanx for the comments. For those of you who said stop joking around and do your job...it'd be a mighty dreary place if there was no humor (lame as it may or may not be). It IS a portion of our job. This post was mostly meant as a, "f" all our lives if this is what the future holds.

Let us pray that the child does not abhor the taste of peppermint.
Wouldn't eating toothpaste harm the baby in itself? FTbaby'sL
Tell her that eating toothpaste would also damage the unborn baby's teeth. She'll probably propose another solution and you can see how far the chain goes!
Let's hope she's giving the kid up for adoption. But a pregnant gal in juvie--you know she isn't going to be the brightest bulb in the chandelier.
18, she's in juvie. Do you really expect her to be a good mother, toothpaste or not? She may have been involved in drug or theft related activities. I don't think her comment was a joke. She was admitting that she does not care what happens to the child. Babies don't need those kinds of people in their life. 10's got it right with the adoption route.
