She don’t care. She isn’t caught up in her high chair.


It’s like a mic drop but ballsier.

This. This is my life right now. My little shit of a child is teething AND pulling this crap. Make it STOPPPP>

Diana December 17, 2013 at 9:16 pm

Sense of humor? No? I’m sorry.

Ash December 17, 2013 at 9:18 pm

Unclench those pearls, Mother Theresa! I’m pretty sure she meant that to be tounge in cheek…I will fully cop to calling my children little assholes…not to their faces of course.

Courtney December 17, 2013 at 9:05 pm

There is a sippy cup holder device thingy that hooks to the cup and then suctions to the high chair. Also you MS paint skillsz are off the hook!

Leave it. Dont pick it up for a while then casually put it back. Been there, super annoying.

Rach December 17, 2013 at 9:20 pm

oh. my. f.
My daughter is the same age and… WHY! No idea how to fix this. I say “No throwing!” and she just stares at me and does it again. She glares at me and mic drops that strawberry/chicken nugget/blackberry. I take away the food, and she cries like she is hungry. Unreal.

Morgan December 17, 2013 at 9:20 pm

Ignore it an stay patient. She’s learning object permanence (something still exists even though she cannot see it). Plus the more you react to it the more she wants to do it… Not because its fun.. But because she is, in a way, controlling you. (Your reaction has become predictable). Plusandalso? Stop picking it up and/or “take it away” if she drops it. Good luck! Such a trying phase!!

Ashlee December 17, 2013 at 9:20 pm

My mom used to take me for drives in the evening with the windows down to get me to fall asleep, and I used to throw my bottle out of the window all the time, so the story goes, and finally, one night she told me if I threw my bottle out of the window the kitty cat would have it and I wouldn’t get another one. So I did, and I never got another one. Tell her when she drops it it stays on the floor. Eventually she’ll learn.

Colleen December 17, 2013 at 9:29 pm

Around here she gets 2 chances and then the cup goes to time out. Her older brother loves when this happens. But he loves anything that involves her getting in trouble.

Lara December 17, 2013 at 10:00 pm

Morgan is right. No reaction is best, leave it on the floor. And buy the cool sippy cup tether that I wish was around for my little assholes.

Sara December 17, 2013 at 10:01 pm

We had the same issue for months. Drove me bananas. Then I started taking his cup and setting it on the table next to him, and clapping and cheering like a crazy person. My kid is an applause-whore. Worked like a charm. He now takes a drink and sets it on the table and then claps for himself.

k December 17, 2013 at 10:01 pm

Mine is about to turn 3 and has taken to hurling full plates of food across the room when displeased. Actually he’ll throw anything he can lift. Help.

Sarah December 17, 2013 at 10:14 pm

This is my life right now too. Add in a 17 lb neurotic dog under the high chair and it’s super fun. Sure, I could totally wean, but then I would be endangering the dog’s life since I think a direct hit to the head with a cup would kill him. I give Baby Nate his sippy in the “baby cage” aka playpen instead. At least the dog can’t pan-handle for food litter under the playpen.

Jessica montoya December 17, 2013 at 10:15 pm

My daughter is the same age. She drops food first to lure the dog and then takes her aim and chucks the cup at the dog.

Sarah December 17, 2013 at 11:40 pm

Hahaha — She and my daughter would be bffs! Mary just turned one and totally does that. She’ll tease me by waving it around, then put it back on her tray, then BAM. My 2.5 year old knows Mary’s in trouble when that happens! He notifies me ASAP, in fact.

Jessica December 18, 2013 at 9:04 am

haha i love this. the worst thing about my daughter doing it is that her stupid uncle taught her to. every time i have to pick up her crap off the floor i curse him. she thinks it’s a game and laughs. she does this with everything. i yelled at her for pulling stuff off the tree and she ran away squealing with joy……… what. and why. and also, stop the madness.

kristin December 18, 2013 at 9:12 am

It’s normal and it will pass. She thinks it’s a game… plus it’s the whole “cause and effect” thingie. So she’s learning…at least there’s that. At least it’s just water and not milk.

Andrea December 18, 2013 at 9:49 am

I love the drawings.

Emily @ DavenportDIY December 18, 2013 at 10:14 am

B does this too. With his milk cup- that already leaks. So it’s like a mini milk explosion every time he drops it over the side. Awesome.

Alexis December 18, 2013 at 10:57 am


WANA is lovely. I wish I had known about it – I would have helped to promote it and done something to help myself! Next year let’s connect OK? Maybe combined we can help even more people.

Really, it’s lovely. Cheers :)

kimberleydickey December 20, 2013 at 6:43 pm

OMG, my two most used websites together in the same venue. It’s like a black and white cookie. BEST THING EVER. Troublesome Tots rules!

Cyn December 18, 2013 at 12:07 pm

I’m with the other ladies. If it goes over the side, you shrug and say “all gone”.

I’m sure she cries, but if she learns that it’s not the “mommy is so funny when she disappears under my high chair and then reappears with my cup” game, then you’ll have won part of the battle.

Lindsay December 18, 2013 at 3:54 pm

Sometimes it helps with my kids if I word things differently. I feel that if I say, “don’t stand on the chair” all they hear is “stand on the chair”. I began using a more positive approach with my wording, “feet on the floor”. It was telling them what i wanted them to do, vs. not to do something. It is especially helpful with my sometimes defiant toddler. I hope this makes sense, good luck!

Jules December 18, 2013 at 5:49 pm

Damn make it stop!

Heather December 18, 2013 at 9:51 pm

Seriously – the drawings rock! I am in this same hell with my 10 month old. Curious to see what kind of suggestions you get from other Mama’s!!

Elis December 19, 2013 at 1:32 pm

ha ha!! same boat as you and all the other moms, with an added serious full-on stare and “UH – OH” thrown in for dramatic benefit after the cup drop. yeah, you already know it will pass, maybe in a year, and then you’ll forget it ever happened and when new moms tell you about it happening to them, you’ll be like, “hmm, i don’t remember it being that big of a deal,” and they’ll give you the evil eye behind your back.

colleen December 20, 2013 at 8:55 am

hah! this was hilarious. gangster for sure.

Natalie December 21, 2013 at 1:01 pm

Yep – this is my life right now too. Except it’s X 2 since I have twins that like to do this. Hope it passes. Until then, I am planning to embrace the geyser of water that is coming from the spout of the sippy cup as it hits the floor…over and over and over…

Tanya December 22, 2013 at 11:55 pm

I used to say the same think about my daughter (frankly still do)… “Her give-a-shiter is broken.”

Haley December 29, 2013 at 1:20 pm

Hilarious! Mine is the same (plus, she has a partner in crime- the dog.)

About 6 months ago you posted a whole 30 pork loin recipe. Can you email that to me or repost please? This Mama didn’t print it :/


ashley d December 30, 2013 at 12:41 pm

this has been my life for MONTHS. there was a tiny glimmer of hope 2 days ago but then he just chunked it once again. ugh.

AJ January 2, 2014 at 12:37 am

HAH! Living this cartoon right now. She’s totally doing it for the reaction and I quickly learned to have no reaction and calmly pick it up and set to the side. Also, crazy clapping for when she chooses to set it right-side-up on the tray helps. You had me laughing out loud – thanks!

Lauren @ Confessions of a First Time Mom January 2, 2014 at 10:02 am

I wish I could tell you this will stop, but we’re 5 months deep (she’s 17 months and has been doing it since a year), and shit still flies all day e’ry day. Sippy cup, blueberries, chicken…you name it, it gets torpedoed. It’s usually followed by evil ass maniacal laughter. The timing coincided with us getting ridiculously expensive hardwood floors too. I have no advice for you because I’m obviously a shitty (weak) mom. I just put a towel down and pick everything back up and put it right back on her tray. I figure she’ll stop when she’s like..what? 6?

Juliana January 2, 2014 at 2:59 pm

Might not be the best method – but the one thing that got my boy to truly stop throwing things off his high chair was pure bribery. If by the end of the meal there is “no mess” then he gets a treat. Sometimes it’s a little piece of chocolate or piece of a cookie, sometimes I can get away with something healthy like blueberries. Got us through the throwing phase, and now he doesn’t always remember to ask for a treat even when there’s no mess.

Lisa @bitesforbabies January 7, 2014 at 4:48 pm

Lol!!! It could be worse…she could be flinging food all over the place…or is she doing that as well?!

Hannah January 9, 2014 at 11:48 pm

I hope you are not done blogging! I’ve been checking back regularly. Please keep sharing, you are hilarious!

Roxana January 14, 2014 at 2:11 pm

MODG, come back – we miss you!

Anna January 16, 2014 at 8:24 pm

MODG…hope you and your family are doing alright!
