Pop Rocks for the first time. He's 2, and had never had them before. I showed him how to tilt his head back and dump a bunch in. The look on his face when they hit his mouth was a combination of adoration, joy, and sheer terror.
That's alright. It's not an amount that's considered harmful. He has chocolate sometimes, too, and that also has caffeine. By most of the standards of CafeMom'ers, I'm a terrible mom, so I'm not really concerned about it. I've been pretty open about our eating habits since joining, and it's never going to be what most feel is acceptable. So it goes.
All tea has a bit of caffeine in it.
Meh. He ate a good breakfast. Decaf chamomile tea with lemon, scrambled eggs, sourdough toast, some lean ground beef patty with a little ketchup, garlic hashbrowns, and a peach. He'll be ok.
Three packs of pop rocks for a two year old? Oh god.
So do I, and apparently so does he, because he just burnt through a package of each of the three classic flavors in under 5 minutes.
I love pop rocks.
i didnt know they made caffeinated chamomile tea lol!
My kid didn't make a face for those. He just ate them and asked for more. He's so weird. The first time he had a carbonated drink, and the first time he had a fresh strawberry he made that face, but now nothing phases him. He LIKES most things babies and toddlers don't. He likes decidedly grown up food. He's so WEIRD.
aww :( lol i would have loved to see that. its like when you give a kid a pickle or lemon for the first time, the face is always epic.
I wish! His dad wasn't hear to see it and he's going to be so bummed!
That is so funny that you say this. I have a four year old, and I did the same thing when he was about two. It was a great moment. His reactions were great! I laughed for days over it, wish I could have recorded it.
Well, over Thanksgiving I went to my brothers and he has a baby almost two, and I got some pop rocks for my nephew.... excited about his reaction.
Well... the kid is an eating machine and ate them like nothing. No reaction, no weird face... just requests for more. He swallowed the bunch whole. You could hear them crackling on his lips... but he didn't care!
His nick name is BEEF !!! Too funny. I am sure you will be bashed for doing this, but it is fun and it is funny and life needs some fun. Why have kids if not for some entertainment. I am totally with you : )
