    Default What would you do: toddler

    What would you do if you bought your nearly 3 year old a $2 babycino (he usually loves them), he took a mouthful and spit it out while laughing?
    - I am curious as to whether my response was 'the norm'

    Clean up the mess?? Not sure what else there is to do?! If my DS was being silly and spitting it out on purpose I would take it away, if he happened to be laughing and spit it out accidentally then I wouldn't do anything.

    I'd take the rest off them for being silly.

    I'd most likely laugh, clean up the mess, and give the child another try. Oh hang on, did you mean it spat out while the child was laughing, or it was spat out then the kid laughed, coz if it was on purpose, I'd be cross and they child would lose the drink.

    $2????? Far out, ripped off. It's frothed milk! 50c is all I'd pay.

    It was around about that could have been $1.50... The total for my coffee and the babycino was $6.50...

    I would give a warning, make him help me clean it up and if he did it again he would lose the drink.

    This. And I also think $2 is a rip-off, toddling off to start a spin-off....
