The Chiquita is refusing to drink milk.
We took her off bottles about a month ago. Now we are trying to break the paci, but that’s another story….
So now…no more bottles. She asks me for a Ba-Ba every day, and I look into her sweet face with her big green eyes staring up at me, and want to cave. I sooo badly want to cave and say “OK! Stay my baby forever, here you go. Now give me a bigggg hug and kiss!”
It’s like she knows I’m a sucker.
But, I know I can’t. The truth is my little girl is growing up.
I remind her that she’s a big girl.
“Bottles are for babies,” I tell her. “Are you a baby?”
“Noooo!” She says.
Side note: No is one of her favorite words so I use reverse psychology on her all the time. Is this a big parenting secret? I don’t ask her if she’s a big girl or she’ll respond no.
But side note cont., back to her favorite word being no. That and Dunkin Donuts. I swear to God, this kid loves Dunkin Donuts. If we pull into a Dunkin Donuts parking lot she screams “Dunkin Donuts!” yet she can’t put any other two words together (thank you is tanks)….that is except Dunkin Donuts. Good lord what have I done.
Since the Chiquita hasn’t been drinking a bottle anymore I’ve tried to give her milk in any way possible.
~ A mini water bottle
~ A sippy cup
~ A big glass which I tell her is “Mommy’s milk” and that I will share with her
All I get is Noo! Noo! Noo!
This kid just doesn’t want to drink milk anymore.
Sooo what’s a
desperate bad mom to do?????
