Tate is constant trying to use the bunnies. She sees the rest of the family using them and can’t understand why she can’t use them. I’m sure they look super fun! Last night I decided that I was finally gong to allow her to use the salt and pepper. She started with the pepper shaker (which was luckily empty). Then she took the salt shaker and shook and shook and shook ………….. and shook. There was a layer of white salt all over her corn. Then she determined this was not quite enough and asked for the shaker again. She shook and shook and shook some more. Finally she decided that this was perfect.
Tate got a large spoonful of corn/salt and put it in her mouth. Her look of happiness and self-satisfaction quickly changed into one of pain and disbelief. She promptly opened her mouth and spit the mixture out onto her plate. Tate immediately asked for water which I provided. This may not have been the best parenting technique, but I don’t think she will have much interest in the salt and pepper shakers any time soon. There goes “mother of the year” again!!!
For her determination, Tate is my favorite today : )
