So this week Nicoli totally surprised me. Now I’ve heard of kids doing some crazy things with food but to this date I never had a child that did weird or wacky stuff. Okay wait I take it back, about 11 years ago BalletGirl did chuck a chicken nugget out the window because she didn’t eat much meat and on a road trip I got her nuggets to ensure she ate something besides fries. But after a while I could hear her saying “fly away, fly away” and noticed she was chucking them out the window. I asked her about them and she replied she didn’t want to kill them and wanted them to fly away.
Fast forward to this week and a one year old, boy did he do some wacky stuff to himself this week. Nicoli has decided if he does not want to eat something or he is full he will hide it. Yes, hide it and not just anywhere but he hides it in him. No, he isn’t eating these things, he squishes them once he is full or if he doesn’t like them. I gave him those Gerber chicken sticks, he apparently didn’t like them. He mashed them up on his tray and proceeded to scratch his head, or so I thought. I noticed he still had the meat on his fingers and thought about the mess it was creating on his hair so I walked over to clean them. Instead I find somehow in less than a minute he was trying to shove them in his ear. Yes, his ear, thankfully he only got a little at the bottom.
He didn’t like his scrambled eggs yesterday for breakfast either. Guess where those went? No, not his ear. Nope, not his nose either, but I’m waiting for that day now. He was sticking them between his toes. EWwwwwwww. Yep, I have that son, the one that will put things in places. Don’t tell me I’m going to need to take him to the doctor to learn about the alligator tweezers I’ve heard about in movies. So what crazy/wacky things have your kids done this week?
