Henry found a chocolate covered rice krispie treat yesterday (Adam had bought it for me at a bake sale) and I was too tired to make him stop eating it. I know I should have drawn the line at the second one on the plate, but I wanted a bite then too. Unfortunately he hid behind a chair and ate that one too. Oops!
Since he had woken up late from his nap I decided to grab lunch at the diner. They have delicious fresh pressed apple juice that I bought for him (bad move #3) which he promptly sucked down. Hello...anyone sensing an impending sugar overload?
Our food was taking an unusually long time and he was getting increasingly "spirited." Trying to jump up in down in the booth, standing in his high chair, throwing things on the floor, throwing things into the next booth... He wasn't being tantrum-y, just very naughty. I told him if he didn't stop we were going to leave, which of course thrilled him and he started to pack up his things...Shoes on, collected his pacifiers, started saying "Bye-Bye"...
Right then, our food arrived and I decided to press on. Of course he just got worse. He refused to eat, was trying to climb out of his chair, and he threw his pacifier at the busboy when he walked by. The last straw was when he took his shoe off and hurled it at the manager as he passed (He actually hit him to make it even worse ). When he turned around Henry was laughing like a little deranged elf. I quickly asked the waitress to pack up our food, paid and then hot-footed it out of there!
