- We got a bidet!
Not actually, however I had an extremely similar experience when I went to sit down and my son lifted up the toilet seat at the last second. In case you’re wondering, this scores high on the toddler amusement list, right after farting loudly during prayers at a Sunday church service.
- Bobby pins 7 : Me 1
I keep losing the game of Find all the Bobby Pins before bed. My hair is unconscionably long, and still curly which means that it takes no less than at least twelve bobby pins for me to look as unkempt as Helena Bonham Carter on a good day. Otherwise I look like a graying Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City circa season one. While I rock at putting bobby pins into my hair, they tend to twist and bury themselves so that I can’t find them at the end of the day, that is until I roll over and stab myself in the head while falling asleep.
- Welcome to our Ice Hotel
I slept on a bed of ice! You know those iconic photos of the ice hotels? It was exactly like that. Only not really, because it was my bed, in my house. It’s so cold that somehow the mattress froze to the wall and the mattress partially froze too. Come to Canada where it isn’t even warm indoors!
- You should see the other guy
Mini-Tex head butted me in an attempt to escape being shoved into his snow suit and gave me a black eye. So I’ve been putting on cover up all week and feeling like a bad ass when actually I’m merely a bad parent because my reaction was to stop going outside ever, to prevent further injuries. Mini-Tex was completely unharmed in case you were concern, by contrast I saw stars.
- Next come the flame throwing lessons
I taught our two year old how to scale the four foot high ladder section of his play structure, figuring that our cautious non-climbing child would never attempt such a maneuver on his own. In other news, I shall be eating my hat along with my words and clearly idiotic intentions.
Uh-oh what have you done?! Our 2 yr old grandson is right about now training to scale Everest, he has been climbing since he learned to walk, bookcases, kitchen counter, sister’s play kitchen unit, and his other grandad has built him a ginormous playhouse in the tree with ladder and slide. He just sees what he wants, pulls a stool/box/chair to where it is and starts climbing. You regularly find him sitting on the kitchen counter helping himself to whatever goodies he can find, oh and he’s started preparing his own salad! Loves chopping cucumber. Good luck, if you thought babyhood was tough, watch out toddlerhood! 😄
Toddlerhood is intense. No doubt. Luckily he hasn’t tried to scale his play structure alpine. I just jinxed myself typing that though.
Indeed. The bidet was the most exciting part.
