Apparently, my toddler is afraid of lunchmeat.
I don’t mean that he won’t eat lunchmeat, or that he refuses to touch lunchmeat, or that he fusses whenever I try to give it to him. I mean that he gets a little panicky when he sees it. It’s like he’s squeamish and just a little worried that the texture might actually attack him. He backs away from it, pressing himself against the side of the high chair, and looks at me like, “Mom! You’re an adult! Do something!“
Of all things, my child is afraid of lunchmeat. ♦
