Beginners’ mistake

Posted by D under family

Ok, if this is a beginners’ mistake, why did I just make it the fourth time?

It goes like this. Child (1-5 year old appears to work) tells you she isn’t hungry and doesn’t want dinner. But wants desert.

You tell child she has to eat some dinner. Maybe are silly enough to feed her.

You give child desert (ice cream works extremely well).

Child eats desert.

Child doesn’t feel well and asks to be picked up.

You pick up child and comfort her.

Child throws up all over you (this time in the ice cream store).

Priceless.

S2 seems to be fine – after a shower, so am I. The jury is still out on my shirt.

    Well, you *do* only make it about once a year. Could be worse…

    Duh, don’t feed her desert…feed her dessert! Sand will make ANYONE throw up. ;)
