    Lol I'm laying in bed being examined using various objects from around the house, apparently I have 2 poopils in my eyes and cracks on my heels and I'm about to get a hot wheels track clamp attached to my big toe..

    Sorry Thermo but this made me laugh so hard. Sounds like my little one, only swap your hot wheels track for a barbie shoe or baby bottle.

    Oh the joys of spirited kids hey. I used to read the padded cell from my haughty place of having well behaved kids. Then came dd2 and my sanity and haughtiness went out the window.

    I just hope ds2 is like the older two. lol. not sure if I can handle two with spirit.

    I am on my phone so will reply when it is a bit easier to type but maybe I should cut and paste what you wrote and replace ds with dd and that would be me... Great idea for a thread!!

    I have one very spirited toddler!! She has been GO GO GO since she crawled at 5 months!!

    Everyone I know has "normal" children.

    Mind you I have seen a dramatic change (no tantrums) since cutting out sugar and preservatives.

    She still never listens and runs around like a crazy person but no melt downs.

    What is the definition of "spirited"?

    Not sure if this is what I have or not.

    Where did this term come from?

    More - the child is simply 'more'

    Louder, faster, quicker, more intense

    NOT hyperactive, not ADHD, but simply 'more'

    It's a nice way of saying ridiculously hypo! Sometimes naughty (but not all the time).

    Can I join? I have a spirited 8 yo who has always been a challenge. In fact, so much so she on on the waiting list to see a ped, as Im wondering if there might be something else going on. She is impulsive, loud, active, *ews everything (any cures as even her teacher has noticed that), very bright but lack socially and is also stubron. I have just started reading "raising your spirited child" which is just like her.
    Good to know I am not alone.
