Today, my 3-year-old broke his glasses, clogged the toilet with Hot Wheel cars, and covered the whole house with Cheerios. All in a matter of roughly 6 minutes while I was putting laundry away. FML

have kids they said, it will be fun they said

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.

Depends on how we raise them they said.

#20 Not really. Three year olds are always adorable little demons, no matter how you raise them.

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.

True. I have a 3 year old daughter. I use to think I wanted more kids but she has definitely changed that

It is fun. Don't worry OP, when your son has a 3 yr old and his kid does something like this, you will laugh and say "now you know what we were like when you were 3".

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?

34, you sound like a really fun person. XD

Am I the only one wondering even though you specified it was with a pillow and a dryer?

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 was three i got ahold of the baby powder while my mom was making my bottle and got it all over the house and got ahold of my dads Ac/Dc cds and def leppard cds n threw all out the window. my mom was only like 10 ft away from me

Seems like she'll be writing an FML one day. :P

I'll probably get down-voted for this, but am I the only person who wasn't destructive and messy as a 3 year old? The only thing I ALMOST did was put a pair of scissors into an electrical socket...

Fast and furious!

How is that gay?! I wish people would stop using sexuality as an insult -.-

Reminds me of that scene in Monsters Inc.

Wait until he realises he can wear his undies on his head...

And wear bras on his face to pretend to be a fly!

Just smile and enjoy the ride op because the years fly by and soon he will be trashing the house with parties and borrowing your car! (Well so my friends with kids tell me!)

Reason #21393865 why I will never have kids~ The stress of their ability to bend time and space for destruction would be the death of me~ Godspeed, OP.

Gotta give it to him, that's quite an accomplishment

Kid has energy!

It's a bird... It's a plane... No, it's CHEERIOKID!!

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.

Wait till op hears those wonderful phrases "uh oh" "oops" combined with the almighty crash!
