this time it was the boy

Here I was thinking, while writing up the carving situation, 'Why is it my girl, the supposed "easy" and laid-back, older one... why is she the one systematically defacing our home? I thought it was supposed to be the wild boys, one of which we do have in this house, who destroy things.'

Well, guess who proved that theory right...
These are were Savannah's bedroom curtains.
Could someone please invent some toddler scissors that cut paper but don't cut hair or cloth?!?
(notice it's all the way across both panels...)
Or maybe scissors that sound an alarm when they're placed at the ready over any material besides paper?

I think it would save us all a lot of headache.

I'm walking around the house today, feeling like my father, grumbling to myself,
"darn kids... can't have anything nice around here...."

Bummer!! Some day we will all have nice things, right? When our kids are older and we are wishing they were still little!!

Wow, between yours and Nicole's blog....I am so not looking forward to the evil that comes out in almost 3 years old and up children. LOL

Amanda said...

I know I shouldn't be laughing...but I am!!!! Sorry about the curtains.

oh goodness, why do they have to leave their mark everywhere? It is either with scissors, a fork (we have multiple stabs in our cabinets, dining room table, etc), or with their food smeared in wierd crevices around the house. Uggghh. sorry Heather.

you KNOW i feel your pain. don't you just wonder what is going through their little heads?

i remember so clearly when i was talking to my mom one time about getting tables for the living room (this was before having kids). she encouraged us not to spend too much on them, because they'd end up with scratches from matchbox cars and bite marks from little teethers. thank GOD we listened to her...the table is not in good shape now, and my boys aren't even that rough when they play on it!

I think all moms live through scribbles on walls, self cut hair etc. It's all part of being a mom. It's great you have the photos. Some day both of you will laugh about the photos.

Now it is your chance to begin inventing things! I saw a TV program once where these two stay-at-home moms became inventors because of just that type of thing -- they wanted items for their kids or home or themselves that weren't available, so they started to invent them and then also wrote a book to help others learn how to get their inventions out there and through the patent office and how to go about it! Ryan could also help you out with that part of it and I know a few patent attorneys, but they are all in Oregon....
Just a thought! The kids will outgrow this stuff, though :-) Gotta love their creativity, huh or not....

LOL Morgan has shark scissors that make chomping noises when you are using them - I bought them for that very reason!!!
