    I tend to find that anyone who has actually met my daughter, no longer have that thought in their heads.

    Same, although when I was pregnant people were telling me wish for a boy, they are easier to handle

    Has anyone watch Family Guy? My DD2 is the exact character of Stewie Griffin. She is 18 months old.

    The other day she managed to get her arms out of her car seat 4 times and open the door while I was driving at 80kms +

    3 months ago she started handing me nuts and bolts, I clearly had no idea where they were coming from and kept throwing them out. Then one day about 3 weeks ago it all came to ahead when we got up to go sit down and have breakfast my chair collapsed, followed by DD1's chair followed by the table. DD2 stood there and said "uh oh"...

    I was really scratching my head as to why on earth everything broke and it wasn't till we had reached IKEA (to purchase another table and chairs) that it all dawned on me. That's where all those screws and bolts were coming from...

    She never sleeps, goes to bed at 11pm-12am every night. No real nap during the day. Like to be in possession of odd things, like hammers and forks. Is very affectionate but if she doesn't get what she wants you'll know about it, for example, DD1 was telling her not to do something while she had the phone in her hand so she walked up to DD1 who is 12 and hit her as hard as she could with the phone on her head!!! She is really naughty....

    But highly intelligent. At day care she likes to play alone and act like a carer telling other children off, feeding them and putting them down for a nap. To cute.

    I am nearly wetting myself laughing.

    I think your DD sounds like the perfect future wife of my DS1.

    Imagine how boring life would be without them!

    Mine too lol. Babysitters never come back a second time.

    Anyone finding science experiments around the house?

    I have so far found sunscreen in the freezer, toothpaste on a teaspoon behind the couch, a container in her wardrobe with an apple inside of it, this week alone.

    Sunscreen doesn't freeze. Toothpaste doesn't expand with air. Apples still rot in airtight containers.

    Hmmm methinks that DS is actually a cherub with a few bad moments after reading the last few pages! Sorry ladies but some of those stories are HILARIOUS!

    Had a good day today, but have an in-home visit tomorrow to do with resuming foster caring after our 6 month hiatus and just found out that DS family daycare is cancelled for tomorrow (of all days, of course!). I can only imagine the chaos that will ensue once a suit clad social worker sits on my lounge with a pen and paper to ask me if I'm ready to resume caring and feeling refreshed!! Phenergan (sp) anyone?

    My worst parenting moments:

    DD at 18MO projectile vomitting on a policeman

    DD at 3 going out the back door down the path and onto the front door step to feed the cat after she was told to not step foot outside the front door

    Dd at 4 ringing the police (000) when Nanna wouldn't let her do as she pleased

    DD at 5 for stealing the teacher's pointer, breaking it and hiding it -DURING CRE!

    DD at 5 getting banned off the school bus after getting the bullying down on the ground and then sinking the boot in

    DD at 7 unravelling an onion in my bed

    DD at 7 supergluing my towels togther after getting into trouble for unravelling an onion in my bed

    DD at 7 deciding she WAS NOT going to OSHCare and walking home after school

    DD at 7 running away when at the Vic Market when not allowed to have a hot jam donut - she was missing for several minutes - I aged 10 years for every minute she was missing

    She's only been 8 for a month - so we don't have a worst moment for 8 yet...

    but these are the 'highlights' that come to mind
