I have a 3 year old too, and she’s 2 speeds: sit and watch a movie and blur. It’s usually blur. Our house looks like a war zone by her bed time.

Yeah, some days I want to hide in my closet and read Vogue, only to peek out when she’s ready for a nap.

I’ve been searching for a good analogy for my 3 year old. Blender with the lid off seems to fit perfectly! Mine has the same two speeds as well, blur, and movie/cartoon time. But that stillness is only intermittent, and lasts for about 5 minutes. 10 if we’re lucky, lol!

Sometimes, I take chocolate into the bathroom with me, and lock the door, so mommy can have ‘private potty time’ for a few minutes. There are still usually small hands under the door the whole time, though.

Uh huh, totally can relate.  After washing the dishes and noticing that it was awfully quiet in her room, I peeked in to see my 2 1/2 yr. old COVERED in diaper creme.  She found an old tube under the sink and went to town.  I wanted to cry.  I think she even ate a little…

@AudzinLuv: Nice.  It’s the quiet times when you know something’s up. Mine gave the dog a shower with a cup of leftover soda today. Thanks, daddy, for leaving that out. Undecided

When my brother was little my parents called him (they still call him this at almost 20) “search and destroy”. Nothing was safe from him, including a number of birthday cakes.

If you think this is funny, go check out Jason Good’s blog. I cry laughing sometimes. 

Search and destroy is now added to the list of nicknames for my son. Tongue out

Sunday-my 16 month old granddaughter woke her mom up by pouring water on her-

Monday she got into a rigged cupboard found the Nestle powder and poured that on her.  I hate to see what she’s going to do when she’s 3!!!  Her new “name” = Chaos! lol.

@creativeplannertobee: Last week I stumbled out of bed at DD’s 6am wake up time, to find her sitting in the middle of the kitchen, which was covered with Nestle chocolate milk powder, baby powder, and she was throwing eggs in all directions. The cats were jumping in the air and rolling around in it all too.

Moral of the story? Invest in a dry food locker and a fridge lock.

Yep…I never had any trouble during the ‘terrible twos’, but the threes were brutal. Don’t worry…at 4 they get sweet and loving again. 🙂

@Wonderwoman217:  Private potty time w/chocolate (and maybe wine) sounds great.  Too bad both bathroom doorknobs don’t lock properly over here.  Sigh.

DS is 7 and it seems like I’m on a constant repeat of “SIT DOWN”… there is no such thing as a quiet time in our house… tv/movie time is just more time for him to fall off the couch, run and jump kick fly through the air, and then if there’s ANY kind of action in it we get sound effects and MORE jumping.

We’ll be starting his home-schooling here in about a week and I’m pretty scared at this point about both of our survival!

sigh.
