Natural Consequences

When Addison gets frustrated she bites.  When her toys won't go together the way they're supposed to, when she wants to hold something and she shouldn't, when you make her hold your hand in the parking lot, etc - she bites.  Today, Addison and I were at story time at Barnes & Noble and she was frustrated about something while we were waiting for it to start.  She opened her mouth to bite me but moved her own arm in front of face and bit down HARD.  It took her a moment to realize that she was biting herself and it HURT.  She started to bawl and even now, 9 hours later, you can still see a perfect set of her teeth in her chubby little wrist. 

All I thought was "better you than me". 

Consequences bite :)
