Little kids little problems, big kids big problems. Wait until they're teenagers & they smash up the car.

I do have a nice long gray hair in my bangs, I pin them up to hide it, and I'm 25 lol

My fiance helps when he's home too, so I get a little relief, but most of the day, it's the terror and I alone.
Oh wow! Were the fish okay after being on the floor? I've only ever dropped one fish...and it was a goldfish from my pond, he flipped right out of the net onto the concrete! I was freaking out cause I could barely get a hold of that slippery guy. And it was hot, I just kept imagining him drying onto the ground as I struggled to grab him lol. But he was fine btw.

I've always kept the fish food out of reach, because Hayden already destroyed my flakes to dust by shaking the bottle like a rattle...so now it all stays up highhhhhh lol.

Lol 'The Terror' ...perfect name. LOLOL. That's how I feel about my son sometimes too!

Unfortunately, my sons father has never wanted anything to do with him, so I've been alone since I was 4 months pregnant. It is what it is....his loss. :)

I actually had a little 'freak out moment' last night after my son started climbing out of his crib....I had flashes of how hard it's going to be from now on, and only gonna get worse. I don't even know how ill handle a teenager...I still feel like a kid myself sometimes, and I'm 28 lol.

My kids are 32, 31, & 24, you really have to be creative with those teen years, it's a learning experience for everyone. We're empty nesters now, 2 out of 3 live really close by, so we see them a few times weekly. No more worrying about using up all the hot water on water changes now!
