Howdy, friends.

Don’t worry, I don’t mean real trouble.

I mean this kind of trouble:

This is the face of a 21-month-old girl who just bit her mother. And is sitting in time out on the steps (and Jack who just wanted to sit there, too).


She has never bit me. I asked at daycare and they said they have never even intercepted a bite from her. Jack never bit (though he is the victim of daycare bites more often than I can count). I don’t get mad when he gets bitten. First of all, quit hanging around with the biter, kid. You have to learn. And I have a friend whose daughter bites, and the mom is like the nicest woman on the planet. So if SHE can raise a biter, then I know it just happens. No matter what we do as parents.

But Viv. Oh, Viv. She is just a turkey. I hope this doesn’t become a habit.

Happy running.

    I think I’d instinctively hit a kid who bit me (and then I’d feel bad and horrified) so maybe I should never be a parent.

    • If she had really chomped down, I can’t be sure of what my reaction would have been. I caught her as she was juuuuust sinking her teeth in to my hand. Then she goes, “No biting!” which honestly made me have to stifle laughter as I put her in time out. Now, biting during nursing is not funny at all, and Jack did that a ton. I may or may not have pinched him once or twice.

    The first time Katharine bit me she was nursing. I hope she has nightmares from my reaction (and yet I know that she would not be bothered by the nightmares in the least).

    Quinn bit for a bit (only me, of course), then kind of grew out of it. She tries to sink her teeth into my shoulder every now and then but I know it’s only to get attention and when she is teething. She starts to do it and then kind of looks at me. Stinker. Kids…

    Ha, “bit for a bit.”
