Life with a 2 year old

Some days I just want to rip my hair out. It's a good thing 2yr old is so cute or I'd sale him to the zoo! We didn't get to go to story time because I had to clean up messes. He climbed on the end table and from there onto the top of the entertainment center, threw everything off, found a permanent marker and colored everything including a few checks I need to cash and one of my Willow Tree figurines I got for my birthday. So I got him down and started cleaning up all the mess. I couldn't find the marker, but 2yr old did and managed to go upstairs and color the walls, doors, dumped out our game Taboo and colored the cards, climbed on my bed and got marker on my blankets and Baby, who he woke up. So then, I shut him in his room while I started cleaning that up, and he throws all his toys off the little bookshelf, climbs on top of it, I get him down then go back to cleaning, he knocks over the bookshelf. I get him out of his room and start scrubbing walls while he goes back into my room and starts dumping out games again. I send him downstairs to watch a movie while I clean up and he climbs onto the end table again and starts throwing things off the entertainment center again. I locked him in his room for 5 mins after that and then he apologized and went to watch Shrek. I just had a chance to grab lunch, then Baby got fussy and I had to get him to sleep, and my lunch got cold. Then Baby had only been asleep about 15mins when 2yr old woke him up so now he's even more fussy, my house is a complete disaster and I'm going insane. I need a nap!

Oh my gosh, Kara I am so sorry! I'd be through the roof! I hope you were able to get the marker out of most of it and especially out of your birthday present. Darn it! That's so frustrating!

Oh man, ditto what Michelle said. You must have the patience of a saint!

What's with the gout add?

lol, Mimo, that's just to make money

luckily I was able to get most of the marker cleaned up and no permanent damage (except that in washing it off my figurine it also took off some paint :( )

Kara I feel for you really. Just wanted you to know it could be worse. Take what you said and times it by 2 and you have my house. Yes, I have 2 two-year olds and I am about to go crasy myself. Climbing, getting into everything they are not suppose to, and writing on the walls with crayons. Some days I want to scream, so I totally feel for you. Hope that makes you feel a little better. hugs!
