Me: A look at Brielle playing in her little castle.
Caregiver: Yea, she loves playing in there with all the little trinkets.
Me: I’m sure she does.
Caregiver: We do have a complaint about her today.
Me: Oh no, what happened?
Caregiver: Today when she was playing, she bit another baby.
Me: Oh no! Was the baby ok, was it bad?
Caregiver: Well, yes – it was bad enough to show a little bit of blood.
Me: Oh no, I hope the baby is ok. Who did she bite?
Caregiver: We can’t tell you that, I’m sorry.
Me: I don’t know what to say, I’m so embarrassed. She doesn’t bite us at home so I’m not sure how to correct this.
Caregiver: I’m sure it was probably because she’s teething and she’s getting that sensation to bite.
Me: (Get me outta here, fast – I feel so bad)
Yes folks, my BB took a page out of the Mike Tyson school of thought.
It felt so odd because I know she’s a baby, but I couldn’t help but feel a little responsible for the situation. It didn’t help that I had to sign a paper so “the incident” could be documented. Very odd!
I came hold and told RC about it. His reaction, “Yea, I wasn’t much for authority when I was little.”
Oh well, I guess that’s how the cookie crumbles. Cookies!!!
Any tips for how to handle the “biting” issue?
