We have the return of the food throwing.? Sadly, the hacker from last year caused me to lose all of my posts relating to my child’s Olympic qualifying food shot put so I can’t link it.? For my newer readers, just know that my child is the champion of the food flingage as illustrated by this post.
We aren’t exactly sure what has sparked this newest round of food throwing, but it has been going on for about a month now.? Every meal.? He will throw something.? Thursday I turned my back for 2 seconds (after stupidly giving him chocolate milk in a regular cup) and heard plastic on dining room table and a huge splash.? The trusty husband and I turned around to find a little boy with a look of shock on his face as if to say, “I swear mom that cup just jumped out of my hands.”? There was chocolate milk covering our entire table, all over the floor, all over the V-Smile bike my mom bought him for Christmas and all the way up the wall to the window (on my white wainscoting).
Last night he ate nearly all of his dinner and asked for some juice.? He was really good at my girlfriend, Lena’s, house so I gave him a regular cup again (he’s been using a sippy).? He was drinking his juice and all of a sudden while the trusty husband and I were talking he hucked the cup at me.
This morning it was the trusty husband’s morning to fix breakfast.? This means donuts.? I give the child 1/2 a donut and he eats it.? He asks for more.? We give him more, proceed with our conversation and all of a sudden the child grabs his plate and tries to fling it off the table.
If that wasn’t enough we confined him to the living room with no toys and he asked for water.? Not wanting to be cruel we let him go to his room to get his water.? He gets the water, walks back to the living room and proceeds to throw the cup at us.? What the hell were we doing?? Sitting on the couch trying to watch TV.
We are utterly dumbfounded this time around.? Last time we could understand.? He’d only been home 3 months and everything was new.? This time?? Nothing.? The only thing we can think of is it’s seasonal.? Maybe he suffers from baby SAD.? Who the hell knows.? Frankly it’s getting a little old and I’m considering that whole eBay thing again.? Damn… they just reinstated my account.
