Wild Belle Toddler
Belle is officially an angry, emotional, frustrated toddler. I hand her a piece of bread and she throws it back repeatedly before taking a bite. Then if I dare move her while she's eating, she'll scream, cry and stomp, prompting a repeat of the cycle. This morning we shared a can of chili and beans with warm, toasted rolls. Breakfast was such a battle I nearly chucked it all. I ended up spoon feeding Belle beans as we both stood over the cutting board in the kitchen. Belle fed herself a roll in between beans. Of course Belle went ape when I dared clean the chili off her hands and face. I guess that's how it is now.
