Bad Baby and Food!
You have all read the stories about Bad Baby Will. Trust me, he is a real trip. The one thing you do Not do when you are around him is take any of his food. Let me give you a few examples.
A few days ago he was playing with his Pez dispenser and he dropped some of the Pez on the kitchen floor. I picked up a few and handed them to him, only popping one in my mouth. Well you would have thought I was trying to kill him. He started yelling at me saying that I stole his candy and how bad a Poppy I am. I told him I didn’t take any but he said that he saw me chewing candy. He threw his Pez dispenser on the floor screaming like a lunatic. I said good – them I will eat them. He charged at me like a bull at a bullfight. I made like I was crying and told him I was hurt. He turns around and says “don’t touch my stuff again Poppy or I will beat you down!”
The next day my daughter Christi and I took him with us to Toys R Us – big mistake. First of all he wants everything he sees just like other kids. When we told him he would have to wait until the next day and maybe the Easter bunny would bring him something he continued yelling until my daughter mentioned getting him something to eat. “What you gonna get me?” Christi said how about a Good Humor bar that she saw in the nearby freezer bin. He agreed. He was half way done when we had to get him in the car. I told him to give me the ice cream until he climbed into the car seat. You can’t lift him easily as he is nearly 70 lbs. Once he was seated I gave him back the ice cream and he starts yelling at me saying that I ate some of it. The battle continued for another 10 minutes and he kept telling me he didn’t like me anymore because I eat his food all the time.
Finally, yesterday he goes out on the deck with a plate of chips and shrimp – yes this kid loves shrimp cocktail, and he sits next to a close friend who was over for dinner. Our friend asks him “what you got there Will?” Will immediately moves his plate out of our friend’s reach and says “don’t even think about taking my scwimp”. He sat there hovering over his plate so that even a herd of elephants couldn’t have stolen it.
My question to Will is “Can you say NutriSystem?”
I’m sure his answer would be something like “Is that something good to eat?”
