Have you ever looked at ....

Have you ever looked at your kids and thought, "WHY do I need to explain to you why what you are doing is wrong?"
Ok, some background: My son has decided in his two year old wisdom that all drinks should be poured out on the window sills around the house. I was sitting at my desk explaining to him why it's not cool to do this and it struck me how amusing the situation is! This is an evolution from putting random objects into my coffee cup...
Sometimes they boggle my poor mind with the things they will try doing; my three beautiful spawn.
How about you? Have your kids, nephews, nieces, grand babies, or just kids you see on a regular basis done things that make you just wonder how children have ever survived to adulthood?

Lol! Many times, many times! Our son had a fascination with popping dishes into the clothes washer, and assorted items in the fish tanks. The worst was the day he decided to "feed" the fish with the entire contents of the dog food bowl. The niece who lived with us didn't bother either one, but she liked to insert food into the VCR. Such fun.

Fish looked hungry...so did the VCR!

My daughter does stuff all the time that my son never did at her age. She is two and even baby sitting I never had to deal with half the stuff she does. When I tell her not to do something she looks at me smile and then takes off to be at it again. I am just like what is the point in doing this stuff do you like getting in trouble or yelled at? She is a handful but I love her to death.

I don't have kids, but I do work with kids, and yes... all the time.

*waves* I was THAT kid. Man, my mother had her hands full. I was constantly playing with sharp, metal objects. Have a few scars to show for it.

I have three amazing children who mostly behave themselves. My youngest is 16 months old and has NO fear. I think she'll be the first one who ends up with a broken bone! I have said a lot of random things that I never thought I would have to, but it all goes along with the incredible imagination of a child!

My almost four year old does weird things like running around saying babble and such when he can talk just fine. I'm always confused by this.

He's pretty good about not dumping food or drink on things because he doesn't like mess. He's especially funny about anything getting on his hands. I thank goodness for this hand issue because it prevents lots of would be disasters!

I do, however, have to tell him it's not nice to hit a lot. He just loves to play rough and gets in trouble for it all the time. Oh, and spitting. One of his all time favorite activities. Gross!

It is difficult for me to recall my child being that age.. She is going off to college soon but as a teenager she still does things that boggle my mind.
I don't recall being a messy teenager but she seem to think she finds her things better when they are all over the house..

My advice is to enjoy every moment with your little one because they grow up way too fast and then all you have is those memories..

My cousin would vex my aunt by drinking out of the dog's water bowl. She tried to explain that it wasn't proper, but being a creative intellect, she began to wonder why it wasn't proper and ended up writing an essay about it. No conclusion, so she let him ... he lost interest because it wasn't causing a commotion anymore.

I am perplexed everyday by a 14 month old who seems to be convinced that crackers/cookies need to be ground into the fibers of the couch. And at her age, explaining why we don't need that done just doesn't work.

Second this post!!!! They do grow up too fast!! My baby girl is married and a mommy. WTF happened??? It seems like just yesterday I was telling her tampons are not for boogers--cats do not go in her swimming pool--little boys are people too, they are NOT from outer space--and to quit trying to sit in the fridge, and keep the cat out of it too!!!

She figured the kitty was into whatever she was, I wonder how her kitty survived it!!! She was too sweet but rambunctious--she would survive.

Of course! But with kids there often isn't a line of thought. It was just something that seemed right to do at the time. I remember being like that.
