Confession time to my Brother & SIL

OK - Tony & Juli... I have a confession to make...

When Sophia was just a few months old, I'd say around 10 months old, she was loving on me & she was just showing the love to her Aunt Bec.... & you know Aunt Bec always has a Diet Coke in her hands. Well, Sophia wanted to try sipping on a straw - you know I have to show her things in life - how to do some important things - like sipping on a straw of Diet Coke... So I gave her a drink! Mom gave me grief & said I shouldnt have done that (as she was sliding Tab to Madi)... oh, I kid about that... or am I?... anyways, I do think it was her first taste of caffeine.... & what happened next, I'll never forget.

Juli, you came to pick up Sophia & Madi & then Sophia started jabbering & jabbering & jabbering... I was dying laughing because it was like she was telling you:

"Mom, I just gave Aunt Bec a cute little look, and she gave in and gave me a sip and then the caffeine has kicked in AND THEN I JUST CANT TALK FAST ENOUGH FOR ANYYONETOUNDERSTANDMEANYMORE".... Honestly, it was the fastest we've ever heard her jabber... I had tears coming out of my eyes...

When asked "What the heck is wrong with her" - my acting skills kicked in when I said, "I have no idea"....

And then, this video came out & it brought back everything.... this little girl in this video - I'm no fool - they just dosed her up on something harder - I'm thinking Mountain Dew!

PS - I think this is why Sophia loves me so much to this day... she knows I'll give into anything she wants... that's the job of an aunt afterall!

  4. I'll never forget the time we gave Emerson orange soda thinking that it was the caffine free kind. We had to peel her off of the walls.

  6. This just makes me giggle, because my SIL wouldn't DREAM of giving her one year old soda,but I tell you what, she was SLUGGING DOWN the Dr. Peppers when she was pregnant and I'm thinking,"Your baby got more Dr.Pepper in utero than I've had in my entire life. So really, what's one sip going to hurt?!"

  9. Diet Soda... chocolate cake... ice cream... yeah... I think that we've ALL been guilty of handing something over to someone's child that they aren't supposed to have, right??? And isn't it fun to sneak it in??? Not that I've EVER done anything like that!!! No WAY would I give one of the grands ANYTHING that would be considered bad for them! Of course, the girls will tell you that at Nanny's there is SPECIAL milk for the kiddos... who considers chocolate or strawberry syrup in milk unhealthy????? It is just SPECIAL!!!!

  13. You're so sweet to confess. Babies and caffeine...sure makes for an interesting evening. Baby Boo got ahold of my travel mug of coffee that I had set down and forgot about. She drank some and it was almost instant -- she was spinning around, dancing, talking, laughing, falling down and then chattering again. It took quite a bit to calm her down.

  14. You are a bad girl!

    Chicky once went to the neighbor's house for a while and came home wired. She was always active, but this was wayyyy more than normal. We later found out she'd had a Coke over there. We quickly taught her how to ask for a glass of water.

    The video was cute!!

    I am TOTALLY the aunt who always slips the kiddos a sip of Diet Coke too. Bad, bad, bad. But if I'm going down, I'm taking them ALL with me.
