Man, it's been a busy few weeks! Why are the last weeks of school so darn crazy? Also, how is it that school has been out for 1 week today but it already seems like it has been an entire month?
But having nothing to do with that, my almost 20 month old has the weirdest habit! Most of the weird things he does I think, "Oh yeah, been there done that. One of the other kids did that too" - but with this one, I'm not sure any other kid on the planet has done. If they have let me know and maybe we can start a support group.
Baby crazy pants throws an absolute fit if he cannot hug every single item I put into the grocery cart.
As you can imagine this proves quite challenging for some items I purchase:
1) Bread, buns and things of that sort. Why does he hug these much harder than anything else I purchase? Probably because they are squishy and "hug" back? I have many many bags of crumbled hot dog buns currently residing in my pantry. The geese at the park are going to LOVE us!
2) Chicken, meat, etc - plain and simple I am not going to give my kid salmonella just so he won't scream. I apologize to all other shoppers within ear shot.
3) Frozen items - they are cold and then he screams, I don't give them to him and he screams. Lose, lose situation there.
4) Glass bottled items - he has a penchant for throwing the item on the ground after he has loved it within an inch of it's life. Fortunately I figured that out before we sent some poor unsuspecting shopper to the hospital.
This week he upped his game to wanting to kiss the items.
Where does this go next???
Good thing he is cute.
