Ya’ll. I must be doing something wrong. I try my best though and that’s all I can assume anyone asks for when it comes to parenting. Or at least I hope so. But my LORD does G test my patience something FIERCE.
In the last week he has broken the television in our bedroom, gotten into a jar of peanut butter and smeared it all over my mirror, intentionally colored on my newly refinished table (which I know was intentional as he looked at me and smiled as he did it) figured out how to open his hydro-cortisone ointment and smeared it all over himself, a friend and my new couch (which luckily I got for free) and turned himself and O into “cat boy” with a blue marker. It’s been interesting to say the least.
*since starting this post, he’s also managed to hose down myself as well as 4 other children while we were playing outside. SO SUPER AWESOME.
I apparently lack the skills to keep him busy enough to not be the biggest trouble causing, havoc wreaking toddler. Any suggestions? I do art projects and outside time and one on one play. But being a parent to a tornado of a child is becoming more and more challenging.
