My 19 mo has been asking screaming for a "seespin" for the last 45 minutes. What the hell is this. I have offered him every possible foodstuff

Help 😥

He hates raisins. I suppose he could have suddenly decided he likes them...maybe I should just take him to Sainsbury's and let him loose at the shelves!

You’ve probably tried this but have you asked him to point to what he wants or take you to where it is?

Have you asked him to show you? Point at it? Ask him if it’s something to eat?

smellybeanpole Tue 17-Oct-17 15:51:25

Maybe crisps but csn Say it properly.

Sheepskin rug?

Cheese String?

PondLifeinLondon Tue 17-Oct-17 15:53:37

Yes we've tried "show mummy where it is/point to it for mummy" and he just gestures at the kitchen. Thought at first he was asking to go IN the kitchen but nope.

Seesaw at the park? Cross between seesaw and swing?

QuestionableMouse Tue 17-Oct-17 15:54:44

Take him into the kitchen and ask him to point.

"Yes, you can have seespin, of course! But seespin is hiding, can you find it? Where's seespin? Where's seespin gone??"

Took my yonks to work out "air-eight" was elephant in our house.

If you work it out, you will tell us won’t you??

sonjadog Tue 17-Oct-17 16:02:54

Something relating to cheese?

Ahardmanisgoodtofind Tue 17-Oct-17 16:04:38

Washing machine ? As in wants to see the spinning clothes??

yawning801 Tue 17-Oct-17 16:05:01

My first thought was teaspoon or saucepan. My guess would be a sieve or a washing machine!
