So, not all of Pookie’s moments of the week have to be good moments, right? After much thought, I decided that Pookie’s moment of this week was when he threw a total fit at dinner time on Tuesday. Normally, he’s such a good eater, but on this day, when I placed his delicious shrimp quesadilla in front of him, he basically got ultra pissed off at me, refused to eat and started screaming. The night before, he loved the quesadilla, so I’m not sure what happened here.
Trying to get him to calm down, I offered him his Humpty Dumpty, which made him somewhat happy, but he still needed cheering up, so I brought over the potholders, which had been a hit at dinner a couple of weeks ago. I tried putting them on our heads, but he needed them on his hands, so I obliged.
This is what it took to get him to calm down and kind of eat his quesadilla. And just because it was definitely out of the ordinary, it’s the Pookie Moment of the Week.
Pookie’s runner up moment of the week was bathtime with the foam numbers and letters that I had gotten him for his half birthday last week. They are definitely his new obsession.
Pookie turned 18 months yesterday, so we decided to celebrate with presents and a cupcake! He’s actually really interested in learning the alphabet so we got him foam letters and numbers for the bath, as well as a wooden alphabet puzzle and a fun ball. He loved the foam numbers so much that he brought them to the dinner table and held on to them throughout dinner. The only thing that got him to release them was… the cupcake!
OMG give me that thing right now!
We got him a vanilla ganache cupcake from Martha’s Country Bakery, and it was a hit! Those little ganache curls were perfect because he picked them off and ate them one by one instead of diving right into a pile of icing. This way, he ended up not eating so much of it and not making too huge of a mess.
Of course papa provided some entertainment during the cupcake-eating experience, and, as usual, Pookie wouldn’t allow him to stop playing for a second!
