While I've never had my kids threaten to break my nose, those of you who also have kids can understand how funny this is. I have 3 girls and a boy, ranging in age from 1 to 9. They make life so entertaining, yet so complicated at the same time. For instance, my son, who just turned one, is so cute when he crawls around pushing cars and trucks! Change that car into my MW3 disc, add a slate tile floor, and suddenly, he is not so cute. But he tries to be, when he looks at me a smiles. "Look at all the funny gouges I put in your game, papa!" he seems to be saying.
Maybe I should keep a tally of all the things my kids destroy, and when they move out, give them the bill.
My boyfriend's son is two and (of course I think this) everything he does is so funny. He likes to try and help me do everything. Flip pancakes, blow dry my hair, bring in groceries. He's also in his mimicking stage. Every single thing you say, he'll say it back to you. I don't think he's seriously broken anything that isn't his, yet.
lol Hopefully whatever he breaks won't be too expensive. They all break stuff. =P I love the 1 to 3 year old stage. They're little sponges, and when they want to help with everything, it's so fun!
Today, my 9 year old came outside carrying the 1 year old, and somehow he squirmed and slipped, and she dropped him on his head, but she still had his leg. The poor kid barely cried, but had a 1/2" gash in his forehead. My daughter felt so bad she ran away and cried, but everyone is ok now. Kids are made of rubber, it seems.
I have no plans for children of my own. I've never wanted to have kids. But I do live with my Godkids and their parents. I live them. They are all my reason to stay alive.
But oh... when a collectible Star Wars piece is held by a two-year-old who bites EVERYTHING... I just want to hide my head forever. It can be so frustrating. And they mean well. They do. It's just...Ack!
