October 19th, 2004, 11:19 AM
I used to see all kinds of stuff when I lived with my aunt. She ran a daycare with about 15 or 20 kids, most were between 2 and 5. I tell you, that many kids in one place can drive someone nuts. I don't know how she did it!
October 19th, 2004, 11:35 AM
My younger daughter stuck a plastic bead in her ear. There were a few tense moments which involved the word "surgery"! The Dr. managed to find something small enough to get behind the bead and pop it out though.
October 19th, 2004, 11:49 AM
Those sound like the reasons I have a dog. But they keep me laughing Sorry it is at your expense Jackie :D
October 19th, 2004, 11:59 AM
I haven't had the problems with my three girls shoving anything up their nose or in their ears. Although I do remember a time when my oldest, who is now 5, painted herself and her room with her own poop. Yeah, um, that wasn't fun to clean, but I did take a photo of her covered in it. I can use it later in life lol. :D My twins decided to paint themselves with diaper rash cream one day, while their older sister just watched. I took a photo of it and let me tell you, cleaning that was alot harder then cleaning up poop. :o Both of these happened about 2 or 3 years ago, since it's been pretty quiet.
Of course, most of the time they do things at the wrong time. I remember about a month after we moved into our current apartment (this was 2 years ago), the man next door was being arrested. The police car was out front and parked almost in front of the girls bedroom window. One officer was in the car and the other was putting handcuffs on the man. The next thing I hear is my oldest singing "Bad Boys" at the top of her lungs... out the open window!!! The officers were both laughing, however, the guy in handcuffs wasn't impressed at all. I got a good chuckle out of it, no matter how red my face was. This is the same child that ran through Wal-mart screaming at the top of her lungs "Daddy wears panties". My husband dislikes going to Wal-mart now lol.

It looks like you have your hands full. I am hoping our daughter won't be that bold. Your stories gave me great laughs, and now I know what exactly I have to look forward to. :D Kids will be kids.
October 19th, 2004, 12:10 PM
I remember when my oldest did the whole "poop art", I could only hope that my twins wouldn't do the same thing. They didn't, at least not with poop, only diaper rash cream. My oldest is now 5 and my twins are 4.
I can sit back now and laugh about all of this, but at the times, it wasn't so funny :D
Kids are great and no matter what, always do something to make you smile :)
October 19th, 2004, 12:17 PM
I have 5 kids..boy 21,boy 18 boy 17 girl 12 and girl 6 When my youngest was 3..I noticed that she had a very runny nose,and the stuff coming out was black! I got worried,layed her down with a penlight to look up her nostril
Well the little devil had taken a small headphone cover,headphone condoms I call em and stuck it up there...5 mins later with some tweezers she was fine.
BUT when she was 4..she complained of a tummy ache..when I asked her WHERE her mickey mouse necklace was..she said " I eat it mommy" Well off to CHEO we went,1 xray later,revealed the Mickey mouse necklace,complete with 16inch chain and 1 inch pendant in her tummy
Nurses thought that was hysterical..what goes in,must come out right? and it did!
October 19th, 2004, 12:20 PM
My lot have done load of silly thing the best one was my middle one drew all over himslf with red nail varnish great!!!
October 19th, 2004, 12:21 PM
HAHAHA I love hearing other parents' stories about their kids. Makes me glad mine skipped over certain things. Thanks for the chuckles!!!
October 19th, 2004, 12:28 PM
Oh geeze, if my little girl will do these things, I think I am in for a laong haul! :) I guess it is just a kid thing. :D It will make for great stories later in life, won't it. :crazy:
October 19th, 2004, 02:41 PM
My son swallowed a penny once.... took four days to pass, now that was something, dicing up poop to find the penny.
He also put a dime up his nose (don't ask, I couldn't describe how even if I tried)... that was fun, trying to take it out with tweezers.... if anyone knows of a new mom, buy them tweezers and a good strainer!!!! Those will be the best gifts ever!
My neice stuck a smartie up her nose (candy) my sister sat all night in the ER with her... by the time she was looked at, it had disolved. :D
October 19th, 2004, 02:57 PM
I know it doesn't deal with kids sticking things in their noses or ears or anything, but when my three youngest sisters were little, they were playing shark one day, and my youngest sister Kari (3 at the time) hit my sister Emma (6) , who was the shark, in the head with a brick!!! :eek: Kari said that she had to kill the shark to save the swimmer, Molly (5). Kari is now 12 years old, and we still give her crap about it. Don't you all worry, Emma was just fine. Luckily the brick was a small one, and didn't crack her head open or anything, and also that my father worked in the medical field, so he was able to take care of any injuries that there might have been. Looking back now, it is kinda funny, but could have also been a different story if something really serious would have happened.
October 19th, 2004, 04:53 PM
jackieb, if i were you i would be locking those boys up till they are 16, gosh what a band of merry little men you have, im sure they keep you on your feet :D
when i was a kid i was pushing my little brother on the swing, it had chains on the side holding the seat, i wanted to spin him and said to put his fingers in the chains so he didnt fall, well i started spinning him and broke all the fingers in his left hand, my poor brother on another occassion i was swinging the toaster around by the cord in the kitchen, mum was out the back, well my brother walked in and copped it right in the forehead, he had 15 stitches to the wound and that was only two of the many injurines we inflicted on each other, needless to say he has not spoken to me in 10yrs now :eek: (not that i really care) :D
ah the poo artists, yes my little nephew did that too, but put it all overt he walls of the house my sister and i were renting, gosh we scrubbed all day :rolleyes: .
i never forget looking after a little boy, his mum had brought macdonalds for his dinner before she left for work, well he refused to eat the macdonalds, and his mum was quite poor so i wanted him to eat the treat.i told him he was not leaving the table till he at least ate one thing of the plate, he started eating it, i turned away and bang, he was choking on that burger, poor kid, i felt really bad and didnt make him eat it and gave him ice cream for dinner instead, poor kid. :o
a few months ago i took my 2yo neice to a water adventure park for little kids, well we were in the toddler pool and i heard yelling and i looked up for only a few secounds, and then i looked down at her and she was floating face first, i just grabed her shirt and pulled her up, but hey she thought that was really funny and spent the rest of the day trying to drown herself, bloody silly girl. but ya gotta love em :D ;)
ah lillith, you are in for many an adventure i assure you :love:
October 19th, 2004, 05:29 PM
HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Thanks for the laughs everyone! Chatocat, those are some HILARIOUS stories!!!
I don't have any kids yet, but when I was little, I stuck a lite brite up my nose! My mom took me to the hospital and they got it out.
I also stuck my tongue to a pole in winter because I didn't believe my friends that it would get stuck!! :eek: :p
When my sister was still little, maybe 3 or so, I was 14 and I would torment her! If she was taking a bath, my mom would ask me to watch her while she did the dishes. My sister had a little baby seat that she would sit in, but couldn't get out of. Well, me being the "great" big sister I am, I would turn off the light, turn on the fan, and close the door!!! She would SCREAM her head off in fear, thinking there was a monster in there with her in the dark!!!!! My mom would get sooooooo mad at me! :p
I tried that when she was like 6 and she had grown out of it by then. We still talk and laugh about it!!! HEHEHEHEHEHE!!!!! :D :angel:
October 19th, 2004, 06:33 PM
quote 'I also stuck my tongue to a pole in winter because I didn't believe my friends that it would get stuck!! '
that is funny, i told my brother to lick the bars in the roof of the fefrigerator once, he did and he lost some of the skin of his tounge, man did my mother flog my backside red for it, hey i thought it was a really good funny idea at first, i was to young to realise what would happen. needless to say i changed my terrorism tactics from that moment on and tried to be a bit more devious in my terrorism of him (we never liked each other even as children anyway so were always doing these things to one and other).sibings, oh boy. :angel: < that is pic of me, the innocent one :love: :D
October 19th, 2004, 09:07 PM
Oh man, the sibling thing.
My sister is 2 years older than me, well let me tell you, she hated me!!! We had to share a bed and I would push her to one side for the entire night and keep my legs spread as far as they could to keep her away from me!
We also shared the backseat of the car when we would travel and go camping, my parents thought they were slick by putting the cooler between us on the seat.... Yeah, the cooler was the marker for the middle but I would put my back against the door and push as hard as I could to get more of the seat. She would always look for ways to get back at me for taking her space... one day she bit herself so hard on the arm and told the babysitter that I did it. The sitter took one look at the bite and sent her straight to the 'hot-seat'. At the time, my sister had a missing tooth right in the front, well her bite on the arm had strange look to it, one tooth mark was missing! That was a great day for me! :evil: :p
October 19th, 2004, 11:00 PM
LMAO... I just pictured a big sneeze and a huge chalk cloud!!! Too funny. I have no kids yet but man do I look forward to those moments, because we all know those are the ones you remember till you're old and grey!! ;)
October 19th, 2004, 11:11 PM
Bed sharing - I thought we were the only deprived family that did that! :p Sis is 6 yrs older than I am and we love each other dearly. But she won't hesitate to tell anyone who'll listen about how I just rolled over one night, threw up all over her, and then rolled back onto my other side and continued sleeping. :sick: My rebuttal is to tell the same audience about the time she rolled over in her sleep, flung out an arm and caught me right on the bridge of my nose. I blame her entirely for that particularly hawk-like feature of mine. :evil:
Lillith, you are in for one helluva ride! They can make you cry with laughter one minute and then run screaming from the room the next. And save up some cash for hairdresser appointments, 'cause the gray really starts showing up in fists full after the kiddies arrive! :eek: But you know we wouldn't have it any other way. :thumbs up
October 20th, 2004, 01:16 AM
And save up some cash for hairdresser appointments, 'cause the gray really starts showing up in fists full after the kiddies arrive! Not only for the reason of going gray but also cause kids like to give themselves haircuts (and others!). :D
October 20th, 2004, 03:13 AM
Well jackieb,As a youngster one chrimbo I was given a drum with sticks and one got stuck halway down my throat mum freaked ! :eek: Dad managed to remove it thankfully ;) My wife as a youngster was eating grapes at her aunts couldnt figure out where to put the seeds,So they ended up going in her ears for which she got earache and trip to casualty ;) And my eldest son as a little one did the usual poop painting :D I never did figure out what it was :confused: but it sure was an original :)
October 20th, 2004, 04:37 AM
my son also watched his hair with soap the other day his favourtie trick was trying to shave so we removed all sharp objects anywere in the bathroom as he climbs anywere lol!! :crazy: mine too have done the poop thing nice aye
October 20th, 2004, 08:21 AM
I know that they love giving themselves haircuts. My sister Molly did it to herself the day of family pictures, and it was right down the middle of her head, Looked like a witches broom. It was cut all the way to the scalp, so a haircut wouldn't have worked. We still got the picture taken, with her "new" hair do, and to this day, my mom still has the picture hung up, and talks about that day.
I just thought that my sisters caused alot of trouble. But I guess every kid does.
I hope I don't have to deal with poop artists!
October 20th, 2004, 09:21 AM
I didn't have a poop artist :( I feel so deprived! :D
But I did have a clothes washer... during potty training, my son thought it would be cool to soak an entire basket of clean laundry. Oh, I wasn't a happy mom then!
October 20th, 2004, 11:57 AM
I just can't wait to deal with all these types of things :o
October 21st, 2004, 12:20 AM
I just can't wait to deal with all these types of things :o
Thats the easy bits lol! Wait till they get older ;)
October 21st, 2004, 05:29 AM
I remmeber when i was 12 getting that spray die that you can put on your hair and putiing it all over my hair. I had always wanted my hair dyed and my mum wouldnt let me so i took this chance to get revenge. When i wlked into the house her chin hit the floor.
October 21st, 2004, 08:50 AM
My sis likes to be the "cool mom", so she lets her 14yr old die his hair all sorts of weirdness (my fave was the leopard spots). He was fairly young when he got his first earring, and has since added a few more himself, including one of those spikey things that stretch your hole so you can plug it up with a cork or something. :rolleyes: His latest request is for a lip piercing. My sis told him he has to maintain a 75% grade average all year if he wants one. I think she should have raised the bar a little for that one - I'd be asking for 90% at least!! I just shake my head. My oldest is 5, so I have a few years before I have to start dealing with piercings and such. Welcome to parenthood, Lilith (can you feel the gray hair popping out yet?)!! :crazy:
October 21st, 2004, 08:59 AM
yea my sisters on the peircing stage hair dying stage her daughter is 11 and alot of her friends have peircing.
My mum was not a cool mum lol!
Think i gave her no end of worries but shes laughing now when i tell her about the boys. :evil:
October 21st, 2004, 09:12 AM
Think i gave her no end of worries but shes laughing now when i tell her about the boys. :evil:
LOL! :D Yeah, the mother's curse: "May you one day have children who are just like you!!"
October 21st, 2004, 09:46 AM
I have at least 5 more years before I have to deal with the dying of the hair. My oldest did ask if she could have her ears pierced, then I mentioned to her that it stings. She quickly changed her mind. When I was a child, I was able to get my ears pierced when I was old enough to take care of them myself. Back then though, people didn't get other areas pierced, or at least not in the small town I was from :)
My husband's 14 year old cousin has piercings, everywhere, in places that make me cringe.
I was cursed with the "I hope you have a daughter one day that's just like you", except I got it times 3!!! My girls can be little monsters, but the majority of the time, they are great. Since getting involved in the rescue and shelter, I have noticed a change in them for the better.
October 21st, 2004, 10:20 AM
We were allowed to get our ears peirced at age 6, only 1 hole. Then once we were teeanagers, we could only have as many holes as my dad had in his ears! Yes my dad got his ears periced when he was in his 40's. At age 16 we were allowed to get our catalige peirced. After that, we had to be moved out of the house to get moore peircings (mom's rules) Dad just said the others would have to wait until 18, because then he couldn't tell us what to do anymore. I had a very cool dad, but mom was another story.
October 21st, 2004, 10:56 AM
I think I was 8 the first time I got my ears pierced. After about 2 years I let the holes close up. I got them pierced again when I was 17, but made the mistake of having three holes done in each ear at the same time. Got an infection so bad, skin grew over top of one of the earrings and we had to go and have it cut out. I'm now back down to only one hole in each ear and rarely ever wear earrings.
October 21st, 2004, 11:59 AM
I never wear earings, except for my cartalige, and I have an eye brow pericing. That is really the only jewelry I wear, besides the things my husband buys for me. I am not to into jewelry.
October 21st, 2004, 12:02 PM
Same here Lilith. I'm not into jewerly and rarely ever wear my wedding ring. The only thing I wear is a silver band on my thumb that I have had for years.
October 21st, 2004, 12:03 PM
my mum is certainly laughing as i have 3 active boys lol!!
I had my ears peirced when i was 8 then when i was 16 had the top of my ears pierce got a tattoo and stuff anything to rebel lol. I have since let my ears holes close and got the tatoo removed.
October 21st, 2004, 01:59 PM
When I got my 1st car, my younger brother was 3yo. I proudly took him for a ride in my "new" car to get a soft-serve ice cream cone. He was so excited! When he got his cone, he jammed it up into the headliner! I was good to him. When my boyfriend took me for a drive, we took him along in the backseat. He stood behind my bf and kept spitting on his neck! Years later when he got his first car, he invited my hubby (same bf) and I for a ride. When we got in, he passed me a soft-serve ice cream cone and gave hubby a can of spitting tobacco (ewww) so we could have our revenge. I couldn't bring myself to smash that softee into the headliner. I ate it instead. Hubby said he seriously considered it but could bring himself to try the tobacco. :p
October 21st, 2004, 02:08 PM
ROFL glasslass!!! :thumbs up
October 21st, 2004, 02:40 PM
Boys always seem tto get into the most trouble, atleast from what I have seem babysitting.
October 24th, 2004, 07:47 PM
i know this thread's been cold for awhile but i just had to respond. i have a 6 yr old and have also done daycare for other kids over the years. one day one of the particularly creative kids got up during naptime and had an accident... then took off her pants and left poopy bum imprints all over the apartment... the one on the sliding patio door was the best one. to this day i still remind her of the day of the "chocolate butterflies"
aparently, when i was little my parents had put me down for a sleep in a friend's bed at a party... i was prone to sleep-walking so my mother was checking on me often. at one point in the evening, she came in to find me wearing one of the hostesses' bras and dumping all of her birth control in the toilet--and i was sound asleep.
ah, yes! kids!
October 26th, 2004, 07:41 PM
PRICELESS!!!!!! Thanks for the great laughs!
Our son is 18 months, and I think we're in trouble as he's a naturally curious little boy.
Last month, he didn't feel like napping. I walked into his room to find himself, the crib, the walls and the change table coated in vaseline. That is HELL to get off.
I walked into the kitchen yesterday to find that he'd COATED our 164 lb dog in YOGURT. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry as they both looked soooo happy!
Needless to say, dog is getting a bath.
