Y’know. If your kid has recently become a biter and you know what precipitates the biting, why in the holy heck would you even THINK of picking him up and attemp to cradle him in your arms in an attempt to calm him down? Especially when you know the only things that calm him down are M&Ms, car rides and heavy drugs?
Sheesh. I’ve now got a nice hickey-like wound on the very sensitive area (it turns out) right where the shoulder meets the neck. Another inch and it woulda been my jugular. Probably a good thing he went for the shoulder, eh? I mean, if we want to look on the bright side of things. Which I do. Because it distracts me from the fact that I’d like to be crumpled in a heap in the corner, sobbing for my little boy.
Off to make some eggplant parm. And remain positively focused.
