No title necessary...

Bad Baby strikes again.

This time it was dishwasher detergent and blue food coloring.



And when I took it away and cleaned up his masterpiece?


And for those rolling your eyes and thinking, "Good grief! A toddler is not that hard to take care of. Just put stuff out of his reach." Well, the top of the refrigerator is only so big. And that's the only spot he can't reach. It's overflowing with stuff. I keep trying to put things higher and higher, but he just climbs higher and higher.

He does, of course, have his moments when he's getting into things but it is cute. Like this - He got into a new hutch in the dining room. I haven't decorated it yet and just had random stuff put in there. He pushed a chair over (always his mode of transportation) and started laying out these napkins and place settings. Funny thing is I NEVER set a formal table so I have no idea how he knew to put silverware (or plasticware in this case) on napkins.

I have a 3 year old boy and it is amazing the amount of trouble he can get in! My daughters were so much easier! I hear they will make up for it in the teenage years and boys are much easier! Let's hope and pray that's true!!!

When my son was that age (he's 27 now!) my best friend would laugh and think he was sooo cute when he did those same "bad baby" things. When she go her own son....Then the shoe was on the other foot.

One of my children's teachers told me that the kids that get into the most trouble are the brightest, most inquisitive children!!
Cheer up...he'll outgrow it!

He is too cute ~ oh how I miss those days when my girls were young.

However, they NEVER went through the terrible twos ~ only because they were saving it ALL up until they became teens!!! When they were little babies ~ I would stay up late every night reading everything I could about the terrible twos. So, they both decided to just wait and blindside me now when I'm old and tired. Oh how I'd LOVE to corral them in our Kitchen with baby gates right now ~ at least I'd know EXACTLY where they were.

Oh, how I enjoy these types of blog posts. It is always nice to know you are not alone. My youngest is a wrecking crew in blond curls and dresses. We never know what is next, LOL!

I promise you will laugh about this picture when he is older. My son who is 13 now took a blue permanent marker to his face when he was 3 and I remember reading a article somewhere to take a picture of the
"stuff" your kids do instead of getting upset. I am glad I took that picture we laugh now and oooo I do get teary eyed and wish for them to be little again, it does go by fast. Just keep taking pictures of these moments and laugh he won't be drinking food coloring when he's 20 :)

Kelly said...

Hahaha! He is too cute for words...

Don't ya worry, he will do GREAT, GREAT things when he grows up to make up for your craziness with him.

Bless your heart. :)

Adorable mess! One day you'll be wishing these days had never ended. Okay, maybe not this particular day!

I love coming in here to see what "situation" the baby has gotten himself into today. :-)

I'm a mom on a 12, 16, & 17 yr old and I never was kept on my toes like you are. I have no doubt you are doing all you can, but he's obviously a great thinker and he too intelligent for his own good.

He's not bad. He's a genius.

Heidi Zawisza said...

OMG!! This is hilarious!....Sorry that I keep laughing at your expense!! But, you will treasure these memories when he is older!
