|M's evil twin at Ikea today|
I thought I would treat her again today with a cup of chocolate milk during lunch, which goes so well with delicious Ikea meatballs with lingonberry sauce. I had to literally pry the sippy cup out of her hand as she was once again guzzling it down. She pointed and yelled for the rest of the milk, but I wouldn't give it to her until she ate some of her food. Three bites later (which is all she would eat) she was back guzzling the milk down in 2 seconds flat.
And then came the craziness. I put her back in her stroller and walked around and the crazy laugh started. She was cackling as we walked through the marketplace, at nothing in particular. She was kicking her feet up and down so that her stroller was bucking back and forth. She was taking her shoes off and throwing them.
The friendly child that she normally is, she was still saying "hi" to everyone that passed as usual, but this was louder and was "HI HI HI HI." My usually sweet child was replaced by this little hyper devil child, that I just wanted to remove the batteries from.
Now, some might say this is a sign of the terrible twos rearing it's ugly head, but I disagree. I know it will happen any day now for sure, but right now M is still a very low-key easy going kid, and I am very thankful for it. I totally blame chocolate milk for the madness, so for now, we are off the brown stuff and sticking to the pure white goodness of regular old milk.
