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.
