Lucy Bug

It was a normal Monday night in the Vaicius house. Christian and I had a shift change around 6:45 p.m. when I returned from work and I could tell immediately that La Luz was not thrilled that I was taking over. When it was time to eat dinner she threw an absolute fit when I refused to allow her to eat in the den while watching Care Bears. She wailed and coughed and screamed and choked and threw herself on the floor and tried to knock over her high chair and begged me to take her to mom-mom's and AJ's and it was all I could do to keep from pulling my hair out and then laughing. After twenty minutes she was subdued (exhausted from the theatrics more likely) and asked to get into her high chair and eat her dinner and we had a lovely time together. I think we let her eat dinner in front of the tv once when she was sick and then occasionally when we were being lazy and after just a few times she thought it was acceptable. I recognize that it was a mistake on our part and I felt bad for her for being confused and angry but that's how it goes. I won't make that mistake again.

She spent the remainder of the evening walking around in her new ladybug shoes from Kelsea. They are the coolest and I practically had to cut her foot off when it was bath time. She even tried to bring them in the bed.

They are made by a company called Pedoodles and are somewhat like Robeez but have much thicker, less slippery soles.

I can picture the whole situation..sorry I shouldn`t be laughing at all...but can`t help it...Anyway...she WILL understand eventually that eating watching TV is for very rare situations...just be happy that you don`t live in Latin A. and have to fight the soup operas!!! THAT`S a hard battle....
