Funny Story

Just a little story for today...

Last night Megan tried to bite a friend.

We've had this situation before and we've been dealing with it by spraying her mouth with lemon juice and telling her that her mouth is to be used to Praise God, not bite friends. So far, it's been pretty effective. Her biting has curtailed a lot and we know it's just a stage - but that doesn't mean it's ok.

So last night - the almost biting happened. I saw her "look" and knew what she was about to do and jumped in before she could chomp - I grabbed my handy lemon juice bottle and sprayed her mouth. Megan got the "lemon pucker" and as I was putting her in my time out lap (we were about to leave a restraunt) she looked at me and signed and said, "more!"

Great.... now she likes the lemon juice. On to bigger and better discipline options.

I was thinking how great that lemon juice idea was until I saw the end. I'm sorry that didn't work. I'm sure you will figure out what to do next. Praying for you because I know it's wearing on your patience.
