Hi i have a very spirited two year old too... He is very loving and gentle but cannot sit still! One of his fav things to do is run around chasing the fan when its on for hours.... We have a trampoline and slide in our lounge room.. People laugh when they come over but we need it in case it rains and we cant get outside to use up his energy...
He loves being outside but you cant let go of his hand or he will just run and run and never even think to look back and see if your there... I keep him in the pram when were out cas if he gets out youl never get him back in and he cant sit on a chair without wriggling and falling off... We dont go out for diner with friends or lunch with mothers group cas he just wont sit there and couldn't give two hoots about food... It amazes me how the others just sit there and eat, not mine, never!
When we first met at mothers group the babies were six weeks old and he wAs nick named crazy cam cas he would just lay on the ground and kick and kick while i never saw the others awake... And six month old link is looking to be exactly the same... Yesterday they were both crawling over the basket of newly folded washing they had tipped all over the floor cacking themselves laughing... Very cute... Very scary too!!!
Family and friends really dont get it, think we're helicopter parents but if you drop your guard for even a minute next thing you know they're about to fall through a window or are spraying cleaning products around the laundry, tempting to just stay home or stick to fenced parks where i know he's safe sigh and yawn xxx
