I actually wasn't that bad when I was two. The worst I did was draw all over my legs with a permanent sharpie while wearing a "WARNING: I AM 2!" Shirt. On my second birthday no less. I also climbed on top of the fridge a lot. Now threes.... That's where it got scary. Because at that point I was even more mobile, knew more words and had a better understanding of sneaking around. I used to wake up before my parents and fed our dog a loaf of bread, stick of butter, jar of peanut butter and then smear the rest over the house to 'decorate it' (this was all on different days) and at one point I opened a red fingernail polish bottle and poured it our dogs back. My mom thought I stabbed her until she smelled the polish. I was a monster at 3.
@95 I was a lot worse when I was 15 because I lived with my mom (divorce) and at that point I was bigger and stronger than her so she couldn't really punish me for stuff. And before you ask, I paid for all my own electronics so she couldn't take those away so pain was the only option.
@62: As a girl I also would like to know why you are scared of your wives. People make mistakes and little children sometimes cry. Men are not the subordinates of their wives who have to fear for their jobs when making a little mistake. If OP’s wife gets angry by the unfortunate outcome of some innocent form of playing with his little daughter he should re-think how his relationship works, and if he fears her reaction he needs some self-esteem because such fear makes me think he doesn’t see himself as an equal.
I have gone to several weddings and at the reception it always "enjoy it now (groom) you will never have the upper hand again" "she will always be right and when she isn't let her think she is" IT'S ALL BULLSHIT! My husband and I usually give each other wtf looks like do people actually believe this? I believe I have an equal marriage we help each other to get to a common goal. Sometimes I clean more than him but he shovels and mows the lawn (when there is grass, anytime now spring you can do it! I believe in you) or takes in the trash bins. Why is marriage all about the women in control? Seems dumb.
It's about women in control because many years ago the worst among you learned that by deciding you no longer want us around you can have us forcibly removed from our homes, banned from seeing our children and forced to pay you half our wages as a stipend for the better part of two decades. And now most every woman I've ever met uses it as a threat in relationships, leaving their men with the perpetual nagging notion that one day they will be replaced on a whim and lose everything.
I'm not understanding why anyone would marry someone who treats them like shit. Men and women both. We are equals. I would never want to control my husband because I'm not his mother nor do I want to feel like I am. Same with men who want to control their women like they're children. It's fucking weird.
The fun dads are always the ones who get in trouble. I support your efforts, just not the outcome. Good luck OP.
