I Think I'll Just Cry Now

He doesn't turn two until Monday, but the terrible twos have already started! I'm so tired!!! If this boy gets bored or hungry, he gets naughty! And destructive! Last night he made so many messes. He dumped a cup of milk on the floor (on purpose), he colored on the floor (luckily it was on the wood and it wiped right off), he swept all the magnets off the fridge, he pulled things off the table, he colored on the carpet (with crayon, which I can't get out).........that was all in less than an hour's time (except for the carpet)!!! But THE worst thing he's done so far...happened today during "nap time". And I use that phrase lightly because there wasn't a lick of sleeping going on. I had my work done and thought, hey this would be a great time to catch up on my lost sleep a bit... And then I heard Anna -- "Mama, I tink Jacob's poopy." She'd already told me that once and he wasn't. I figured she was just stalling some more but checked because that's usually when he has a dirty diaper--right after I put him down for a nap. I walked in and could smell it right away. And that's when I saw it...his hands were brown, it was smeared all over his sheet and bumper pad, his legs were smeared. GROSS!!! He thought it was great fun. Especially the part where he got to play in the shower while I scrubbed him and cut his nails. If I knew it wouldn't hurt him, I would've bleached him! So after cleaning him and his bed up, I put him back to bed and then I just wanted to sit down and cry. How come he's so ornery?! I wasn't an ornery kid...I don't deserve an ornery kid!!! :)


But then he does something really cute, like put a rag on his head and pretend to eat a fake lemon at breakfast. And then I just smile and laugh. Until I remember the poop incident. Then I just want to crawl in bed. Papa? Are you coming yet?? I think Jacob is ready for Papa Boot Camp! :D hehe

I remember a certain uncle (who shall remain unnamed at this point) who had the same fun! Getting it off the wall was the worst! And a little clorox wouldn't have hurt him!! Papa is on his way to the rescue!!

I am pretty sure that uncle is my husband. Which has me worried for Hudson's -and my own-future!

I think our time is coming with Abigail. However, she is already into poop! She's been banned from wearing anything but onesies and long pants to the baby sitter's house because she's always in her diaper. Not fun! She gets very upset when she actually gets the poop on her though.

Good luck!

Ha ha ha. I heard of someone ornery in the Wallman side when he was a kid:) That will be too bad if it is combined in one kid! Before you will know it ... he will be 3 next year and will have his other cuteness in him. He is such a special boy! I won't anticipate that with Toby ... I will start putting duct tape in his diaper he he he.

Such a funny story but disgusting at the same time. Oh wait, isn't that what boys like? I had a nephew that finger painted the patio door with what was in his diaper. From what I understood, it was quite a masterpiece. Seems to be a normal activity, especially for boys.

Just to add to my post, once I had a neighbor boy in our yard. He must have been about three. Wore a pair of overalls, barefoot. In one hand he had a piece of fruit and in the other hand was a toad. To this day I regret I did not get a picture. Typical boy.
