I was terrible when I was 3 years old, in a year I managed to get lost in France, almost drown in a swimming pool, set my mum and dad's bedroom on fire, and terrify my mum daily by climbing up the lamp post outside my house to the top. In a day, I apparently mushed a banana into the carpet, hid a sandwich under my bed, pulled the curtain rail off the wall from climbing the curtains, pulled all of the tape out of every VHS and Cassette we had, along with a load of other stuff. At least I was destructive as a child and not now. The fire was made with a hairdryer and a pillow, in case you were wondering.
haha who ever said it'd be fun? as someone who has friends with children (read friends no one sees unless they also have kids and want to ditch them for a few hours) and works where you get a lot of children through, fun isn't a word that's used a lot. OP deserved it, it's what happens when you have kids. and before all the flames, yes I'm sure there's upsides, but how many times have you heard/read things like "how to survive the school holidays" and its all stuff on how to get time to yourself and/or ditch the kids?
I was at the age where I could turn on taps and electronics but couldn't work out how to turn them back off. I tried to dry a boy that my mum childminded's hair and he grabbed a pillow, I couldn't turn off the hairdryer so dropped it on the pillow and hid in my bed in the adjacent room. This was 3 weeks before Christmas, and my nan ended up terrified of me and wouldn't let me go to her house for a while incase I set that on fire.
When I read the part about covering the house with Cheerios, all I could picture was your kid going around the house literally placing the Cheerios one by one all around the house so they'd cover every spot he could get.
Nice timing. Not to worry though. They'll soon beat that time and add a few other destructive things in the mix lol. It's all things for the memories. Enjoy these times.
