my budding vampire
When Mason was teething, he bit me a few times while nursing, but he hasn't done that in months. People's shoulders are now his meal of choice. He's a smooth operator, though. As you hold him, he leans back to look you squarely in the face. His big blue eyes capture yours, and then he smiles and flirts. Sometimes he coos and gently touches your face. He may play with your hair or appear fascinated by your earrings. And then, just when you least expect it, he goes in for the kill, sinking his eight little teeth firmly into your shoulder.
This boy has left teeth marks before, even on his own arm!
Brad and I immediately established a discipline system, trying to nip this potential bad behavior in the bud. I'm trying to keep my little man from turning into a vampire who preys on innocent children in the church nursery. Why didn't anyone tell me that discipline would start so early?
