The Irish author Brendan Behan once said "There is no such thing as bad publicity."**
I think Bjorn knows this quote, only he doesn't know what publicity means, so he decided to make it his own.
"There is no such thing as bad attention."
So when I say "No" as he starts to put a rock in his mouth, he thinks 'Wow, I have Mom's undivided attention. This is so cool!'
He knows it's wrong. He really does. I can see it in his smart, little, beautiful baby eyes.
But as wrong as eating rocks is, doing something that causes Mom to leap ottomans and singing caterpillar toys in a single bound only makes him laugh. And then eat the rock all over again.
Apparently, if eating rocks is wrong, he doesn't want to be right.
**The actual quote continues and says "There is no such thing as bad publicity except your own obituary."
