What the????????

I feel like the only mom who has kids that get into things as fast as mine do. Or perhaps I'm the only one honest enough to put it out in the world. Either way, my kids are driving me crazy with their antics!

On Monday I had to give Mark some Tylenol. My bathroom and his room are right across the hall from each other. Now I do not have a large house so my hallway is about 3 feet wide. In the time that it took me to put him down and turn around, Molly grabbed the Tylenol. She managed to spill some on my freshly washed rug, on her shirt, and drink some. Thankfully only an inch was missing from the bottle and I had given 3 doses from it so she didn't drink very much. Oh and I'm really ticked that I washed the rugs on Friday and then again on Monday. Someone should tell her I only do it once a month.

Yesterday I went into Mark's room to change his diaper. This is not a time consuming task so you would think my daughters could be trusted to be in the family room alone. You would think wouldn't you? After cleaning his little bottom I come into the family room and find Molly doing this.


Yep that's my little 17 month old who crawled up onto the kitchen table so she could her sister's cup. Lord give me strength!

Brett was home with me today since he is on nights. Now I don't know about your husbands, but mine has a tendency to peak in at me while I'm in the shower. This was all the time my little stinkers needed.


That would be my brand new 5 pound bag of sugar and a 2 pound bag of brown sugar all over my floor. (Take a deep breath Allison.) I was so furious! (But not too furious that I wasn't thinking clearly and forgot  to take a picture.) Mostly because I got a fantastic deal on that sugar and now I'm going to have to pay full price to replace it for this weekend. And partly because I now have a HUGE mess on my hands. I should have taken a picture of their sugar faces but I was too mad. I don't even want to know how much sugar they ate today.

Now seriously, what other kids get into this much trouble? I could tell you a story about my kids getting into something everyday. If you paid attention, Molly is the troublemaker behind all these stories. Isabella knows better than to get into the pantry. But that doesn't mean that she doesn't have fun when Molly gets something out. That kid is going to be the death of me.

I called my mom to tell her why I need to have a nervous breakdown and do you know what she does? If you were thinking she was sympathetic you are dead wrong. She laughed her head off and said that sounds like someone I know. Ugh! I already knew that I did this crap. The stories about me as a child are infamous. Why did she feel the need to point it out that my daughter is just like me?

  2. I could tell a daily story about Ky doing the same kind of thing!! You name it, he's gotten into it and fast! Plus, just like you said about Isabella, my other two rarely start the trouble, but they always enjoy it once it has begun!

  6. LOL. Nope, you're not alone! If you check out my post from Monday, you'll see a pic of what it looks like when my daughter was supposed to be taking a nap last August(um, personal haircut). And I have pictures on FB of her a couple years ago covered in marker and lets just say that some of the places she drew on herself were creative, to say the least. My son is okay--he doesn't get into that much, but my daughter has ALWAYS been a handful. But, I refuse to watch her 24 hours a day. I think kids need that "creative" time. LOL You just learn to keep the dangerous stuff out of the way. :)

  7. I'm sorry but I had to laugh. The pictures look so cute! I know it is very hard especially you have 3 kids close to the same age. I am not looking forward to when he can climb up the chair and get up the table. That would give me a heart attack. LOl.

  9. You're not alone. My husband and I walked out of the room once and when we came back my daughter was on the table drinking a can of Dr.Pepper my husband had left out. Or the other day when my daughter decided she just had to try out the dog's food YUCK! Even though it's a pain we will all look back on these stories and laugh!

  10. LOL! I could post numerous stories about the twins everyday! They never give me a day off from their crazy antics, just today I went to get them up from their nap and some how Ahren had smuggled a paint pen in to his cot and coloured in the wall, bed sheet and duvet!! My 'favourite' is when they took the baby gate off the kitchen and emptied out ALL the cupboards! Baking stuff, pots and pans, you name it! The little toe-rags had even hidden the attachments to fasten the baby gate back! Oh, and I haven't even begun to process they house fire they almost started yesterday! I'm sure I was never this bad, but I shan't ask my mum, best not to know!

    Wouldn't change them for the world though!

  13. Got one just like your Molly, but HIS name is Luke! My Molly pretty much just follows his lead or comes running to tell us!

  14. If it makes you feel a little better, one of my friends children only needed a minute unattended to "paint" her couch with ketchup and mustard! See, sugar isn't sooo bad...

  15. Too funny! And, yes. My two get into everything already (and they're not walking yet). The worse part of this stage is that they want to eat *everything* and that includes all the tiny things I miss during my "oh-so-regular" housecleaning.

  18. Oh wow, I know your heart must have been racing when you saw your little one standing on the table. I know mine would have been. It only takes a second for them to get into things. Their curiosity always gets the best of them at that age.

  19. I can assure you that you are not alone. Little girls and makeup comes to mind. My nieces were over playing with my daughter – all preschoolers – and they decided to “do their makeup”. I have a big trunk of princess dresses and shoes and accessories for them to play with, as well as kid friendly makeup, just for playtime. So that was what I thought the girls were doing while I was tidying up the kitchen.

    However, it turned out that no, they were playing with MY makeup and thought it would be a good idea to paint their lips and eyebrows with nail polish. There was also nail polish all over the floor. On top of this they had covered their cheeks and under their eyes with dark eye shadow, so they all looked like they were little battered women. My sister-in-law was not impressed…so there was a silver lining *wink*

    I guess we can all just chalk it up to the joys, trials and tribulations of motherhood.

    Anyway, I found you through the FNF blog hop and look forward to following you.

    Cheers,

  24. Oh my! Reading your post brought back some not so good memories. My daughter was like your kids! She managed to smear a can of Crisco shortening on the back of her bedroom door which had a full length mirror on it, help herself to my contact lens case w/contacts in it and used toothpaste to clean them, and I'll never forget the day I was going to take her to the ocean. She got out of bed before me...saying nothing. She proceeded to go behind the trash barrel get out yellow crafters paint (I didn't even know she knew these were there!) and painted my living room...the couch, the tv, the curio, the rug...it was a mess. Needless to say, I spent the day with the carpet cleaner! Anyway, thx for the memories and thank you for linking up in the Footloose and Fancy-Free Hop. Have a great weekend!

  28. You are not alone. My daughter is a mess and I could write a post just like this one (well I have one and you have three so not just like it). We have the lever handles (instead of knobs) and Cakes can get into the pantry too - we had to switch out the handle from one of our bedrooms to the pantry to remedy this problem. We lock the door whenever we're done and unlock it with the pins.

  29. This is hysterical! It is like kids have this internal magnet that draws them to things they are not supposed to touch. I can't even imagine what a disaster it was to clean up all of that sugar. You probably found it on the floor for weeks!

    Becky :)
