Toddler Tricks – 3

Ways to trick your baby:

Problem: Sometimes your toddler will refuse to believe that eating is necessary for survival.  It’s true that if they get hungry enough, they’ll eat, but, at least in this family, they get crankier before they get hungrier.

Solution:  To keep a healthy amount of good food in your toddler’s tummy, put it on a table or counter that they associate with adults.  It’s harder for them to reach (but not impossible) adding a challenge that makes eating a fun game.  Plus, they feel more adult because that’s where mommy and daddy eat, too.  Another bonus: they can do it all by themselves.

Ways your baby can trick you:

Problem: Once you teach them this trick, you must be ever-vigilant never to leave anything open on the counter or table again.

In case you are wondering, that’s a gallon of milk on the floor that my toddlers are stepping in.  That was also my entire yesterday afternoon.

Solution:  Do not leave any open container on a counter or table top again – seriously.
