Having a 2 year old!

Having a 2 year old feels a lot like being on suicide watch every day. They can get into so many things and makes messes in the blink of an eye. Here are some of Spencer's more recent "activities" that have made us crazy or mad or just laugh our heads off. WARNING... some of the things are gross!!!

Climbing out of his crib
Climbing up my headboard and then throwing himself off backwards
Climbing on the counter and eating 2 small boxes of see's chocolates
Taking his pants off in front of a group of girls just to hear them scream
Running into the parking lot
Taking off while in the middle of diaper changes, then peeing wherever he feels like it
Chewing on used tampon applicator(This is the fastest way for a toddler to get you to brush their teeth)
Taking off the diaper and then pooping in his hands and then wiping it on himself
Cleaning his own ears out with q-tips
Catching bees with his bare hands
Catching lots of bugs and giving them as presents
Throwing anything he thinks can act like a ball
Emptying out a whole box of kleenex

Spencer is a joy but a lot of work at the same time. He is very active and keeps me going from sun-up to sun-down. The drastic differences in boys and girls as all too visible in my household. Thank goodness I only have one boy. I think that if I had more I would be even crazier than I am right now.

So, to all of you out there with a 2-year old my heart goes out to you. I would offer to help but it seems as if I can't find the time. Lol

That is so hysterical! I'm taking what is likely to be my one and only five minute break of the day, si I'm right there with you! I'm nursing the baby while the older two rub PB & J in their hair that I JUST washed. Oh, the joys of motherhood : ) (Really, I mean that!) Thanks for everything since Willis' birth... you've been so sweet!

HILARIOUS!!! Boys are just sooo different than girls. Craziness. What's up with body parts and going to the bathroom 24-7? Boys are yucky :)

I found ya from Have Joy. :)

I spent several years working in a preschool, and I agree that boys and girls are very different! I had one three year old drop his pants on the playground and start peeing on the fence because 'that's what daddy does in the backyard!' I almost died laughing...
