Two more just from tonight
No you may NOT have a KNIFE from the dishwasher!!
NO you may not have a SHOWER by climbing in the dishwasher with the dishes!!
(I had some major dishwashing to do today, ran it twice, and discovered DS is OBSESSED with taking the KNIVES (of course the BIGGEST SHARPEST ONE) out of the silverware thing. When he figured out that was NOT going to be allowed, he attempted to climb INTO the dishwasher LMAO!)
oh and another newly-enforced rule
If you are going to bite Mommy, you may not continue to sit with Mommy. (I think he's teething, either that or it's the joy of having 2 teeth on top and 2 on the bottom...he is OBSESSED with BITING lately. Arms, thighs, whatever he can get.) Maybe it's a little mean, but I refuse to spank him or anything like that, and I've been saying 'NO' and "NO biting, that hurts!' for a good couple weeks, so now just tonight I decided that if he's going to bite while sitting on my lap, I'm going to put him down. Hopefully, EVENTUALLY he will get the idea.
Oh and one more--ONLY water in your juice bottle if you are not in your highchair!
(DS hates sippy cups. Regular open cups make a gigant-o mess. I have just discovered what works really well--those little plastic Gerber juice bottles. I get WIC, they give us a dozen a month. He loves drinking straight out of them and the opening is small enough he can do it without a mess. I'm pretty stingy with the juice, but I have cups with lids so I can dump the juice in one of those in the fridge and ration it out. The rest of the time, he can have the little bottle with water. Fortunately, he likes ice water. The only-water-unless-you're-at-the-table rule got invented tonight after he took a drink from the bottle and then proceeded to accidentally pour it all over the light couch!) He IS only 12 months old, he flipped his arm back not realizing that would make him dump the water he was holding all over the couch!
