A**holeis Toddlerii

How quickly you forget about toddlers.
And this one is a boy, 100% boy.

In a single day he:
  • managed to get a steak knife from the back of a drawer & run screaming through the house with it.
  • climed into a horse pasture containing 6 not too friendly horses
  • tried to throw a full wine bottle down the basement stairs

This summer I have also found him
  • sitting in the kitchen sink with dirty dishes
  • swinging from the top railing of his sister's loft bed
  • climbing for some unknown treasure balanced on a stool on one toe

He also likes to stop my wheel when I'm spinning by either leaping onto it from a chair he has pushed into the room just for this purpose, or by standing beside it, lifting his shirt & pressing his tummy against the wheel until it stops turning.

You wonder why I drink?

Has he discovered the joys of playing with his poop yet? If not, you are in for the biggest thrill yet.

So glad you're back! Can't wait to see the new book-though, I won't have much use for itv(34 C). Maybe you can have a delux edition that comes with BOOBS!! The kids are adorable. Hey, put some clothes on that boy!

He looks and sounds so adorable. I had one like that (and he also climbs into an identical doll stroller that belongs to his sister). He's now almost 5 and he's grown out of some of the thrills of toddlerhood, so you never know. Enjoy it while you can. :)

My boy is almost 4, and while every day still has its moments - well, let's be realistic and say hours, shall we? - his sensitive side is beginning to come out. He likes to read the Foot Book to his little sister (when he's not terrorizing her) and he cries at the end of the Iron Giant when the Giant flies into a missile to save his friends, then bursts into tears again when he sees the Giant repairing himself afterwards.
