    Kids and there Antics

    Peeps

    Had a funny old weekend with the kids.

    Sat morning and I awoke to find my daughter rubbing
    nappy rash cream all over her bedroom floor which happens to be black. Joy of Joys

    Then while playing Borderlands 2 my son happens to find the reset button on my PC.

    Then both spend today tormenting the cats.

    Could have strangled them both.

    lucky I could pull the reset cable from the header on the mother board.....

    Please share your stories so I know my kids are normal.

    Saanan x British Alpines from the look of them.

    Yep - sounds pretty normal to me. Mine are older but how about,

    Posting small change down the plug hole (An expensive way to block the drain)
    Posting toy cars into the VCR
    Posting a pack of playing cards into every slot of the PC. The 9 of Diamonds could not be extracted from the floppy drive.

    Absolutely normal and probably gorgeous as well. One day, you'll look back on these times wistfully. I know I do.

    So they posted cards whilst you were in the house without you noticing? Do they work for CityLink now?

    I give her 2 hours and all hell will break loose.

    Probably - Treasure these days. Good morning Daddy will be short supply when they're grumpy teenagers. <sigh>

    I would REALLY suggest enjoying the whole playful antics at that age.

    I now have an 11yr old son who is a mouthy nightmare and a 13yr old daughter who is both mouthy and violent, have the marks to prove it

    I'm informed that I once ate a tub of it. Apparently the after effects were significantly worse than you could even imagine.

    As for artwork, apparently I also once completed several modern frescos with the aid of several lipsticks.

    So yeah, you can make your own judgement as to whether that signifies normality

    Re: Kids and there Antics

    My daughter thought it was a good idea to use glue (pva) and stick her "spider" to the wall...she did all this whilst i was in bed! the lil bugger went down in the morning before i got up, used the table to climb up onto the side and get the glue.....i can tell you now i nearly had a heart attack when i noticed what had happened! lol but still how could i tell her off? it was a good "purple" princess spider lol

    Re: Kids and there Antics

    Working in a Day Nursery, in the toddler room with 18 months to 2 and a half year olds I have seen it all.

    Coming back off a break one day, I walked in my room to find 18 month old little E had smeared a half a tub of sudocreme over little A's face, and wrapped toilet roll around her head When I asked her what she was up to she pointed at Little A and said "sore" Meaning little A's skin was sore. Clever little thing really, as little A has severe allergies, which make her skin sore, the children watch with interest when I am covering her little body in her 'special cream' before putting her wraps on her Little E was so chuffed with herself, and it made me chuckle to see little A covered in cream and toilet roll, took ages to clean her though

    Cross with the staff that should of been supervising her, but that is another topic lol.

    When my boys were small, the eldest had a thing about hiding food.... You'd find dried up sausages and fishfingers and lumps of mash in what should of been unreachable places.

    Worst was when we'd been to my Mothers and she fed him chicken drummers, two months later I had her on the phone moaning she'd found a mouldy chicken drummer under her sofa

    Michael is 18 years old now and she still goes on about this mouldy chicken drummer that he stuffed under her sofa

    My youngest Luke used to love collecting snails and had a special rock that he'd stick them all onto He'd spend hours sat there chattering away to "Cecil" They were all called Cecil He also had a 7 legged spider in the bathroom he called legless, he'd sit on the pot for hours chattering away to Legless Luke is 17 now and still remembers his many Cecils and Legless

    Kids and there Antics

    Another beauty today.

    While visiting my aunt to drop crimbo gifts off, Reuben who is now 14month old, fell over and whacked his head on the corner of a wooden chair.

    You could actually see the lump growing on his head. Now about the size of a cherry tomato.

    Rushed him to hospital and was checked out. All ok considering.

    Then, went down to my mums to visit and he walked into a wall and banged his new lump on said wall and its now even bigger.

    My poor wife is still as white as a ghost.
