We NEVER had issues, when our daughter was a toddler, getting into drawers or cupboards, climbing on things or throwing stuff into the toilet.
I know, you’re jealous right? And probably thinking of nasty names to call me and curse our fortune.
Well, payback is a B!
Enter our 19 month old Little Dude.
This wee maniac, does ALL of the above, and then some!
He’s walked throughout the house with a box of tissue, thinking he was a flower girl. But before he casually tossed each tissue over his shoulder, he blew his snotty nose in each…and…every…single…one of them.
He’s climbed atop his sister’s dinner table and thrown, our iPod, iPad, cell phone, remotes, books, and pens from the TV shelf.
Our cupboards now don the ever popular toddler padlocks. All of the doors are kept closed because he has an urge to see how everything operates.
Every so often, we are awoken by our alarm clocks turned to full blast static because he’s been mucking with the dials.
The baby gate is practically falling out of the wall because it’s so much fun to run full steam at it like a charging bull.
The other day Captain Distruct-O was keeping me company in the washroom. As a stood up and flushed, he chucked his soother at the toilet as the lid was closing and it went in! There was no stopping the process. I quickly opened the lid, but everything had gone the way of the dead pet goldfish.
Perfect, I’ll I need now is to get blamed by Hubby for the toilet overflowing next time it gets used!
I look forward to this special phase coming to an end. I’m not sure I can handle anymore broken “things of importance” and our daughter has decided that she now requires wearing a helmet around her brother.
Do you have kiddos that reenact a tornado when you are momentarily preoccupied?;
