When does this phase end? I thought she’d gotten over it – she has stopped doing it a few weeks back, but noooooooo. No. No. No. No. It’s back and it’s back in full force.
And. There. Is. Spit. Everywhere.
Yes, dear friends. I am driven to ask for your brilliant ideas because I am not talking about regular, uncontrollable drooling brought on by teething. She SPITS on everything, ALL DAY.
Okay, that may be a bit of an exaggeration but you know what I mean. I’m half-convinced that she does it now just to spite me, which is pretty ridiculous, I know.
I have tried everything. And I mean E V E R Y T H I N G. I distract her with toys and they wind up covered in – you guessed it! I play with her and I end up soaked! I read to her and her book (thank God it’s the waterproof kind) needs a thorough wiping afterwards.
There are only two things I have tried so far that are sure to halt any and all spitting activities.
1. Feed her – but I can’t feed her every single time she does this or I’ll have an obese kid on my hands!
2. And then there’s this:
Now, I know what you’re thinking. She is pretty adorable and I just love how her face lights up at the very first note (or in this case, beat). But surely a mother can only take so much of Beyonce! She isn’t satisfied just hearing the song; she has to WATCH the darned video too! I mean, twenty times a day, I listen to this song if only to put a stop to the downpour.
Has this ever happened to anyone else? What did you do to stop it? Was there bribery involved? Should I just bust out the umbrella now or suffer hearing this song in loops even in my sleep? HELLLLLLLLP!
