Lately "Popette" has discovered "the fake cry". You know the one, the one where there not really crying (I guess some call it "Crocodile Tears") and has a little whinge when she wants something...it's been driving my husband and I crazy.
Today, for example, she wanted an iceblock which we don't have.....I even showed her the empty freezer, where this is no iceblocks!! So of course I got "the fake cry" as there was no iceblocks. To stop her from 'crying' I caved in, and gave her a biscuit....I know very healthy.....this was after trying to get her to eat a pear which she refused to eat until I gave her a fork. She then sat quite happily eating her pear for a while, but when I walked past and offered her some, she refused to eat anymore of it....it's so frustrating!!!
If that's not frustrating enough, I'll ask her if she wants something and I get "No", or I get "No, OK"...so what is it?? Is it "No", "No thanks", "OK"? I know she's only two so I shouldn't expect too much from her, but lately she's driving me crazy with the "OK".....then when I give her something that she said "OK" to, I get a big "NO!!" And she'll just about throw the food off her high chair table and across the room.
Does your toddler do something that drives you crazy?
