Jack Attack the MONSTER



Yes, Jack is a monster! This week he provided many examples of his monsterific behavior. I think Heavenly Father really wanted to test my patience this week and boy was it tested.

Sunday- Wacked me around the head with a badminton bat. Yes it hurt!

Monday- Drew on 3 walls, the toilet lid, toilet bowl and bath tub with permeate marker. If I had a camera I would have taken pictures, you would have cried at the mess. If you are wondering, yes I did get it removed after using a potent miracle solution from Home Depot. My biceps are bigger now.

Wednesday- Sprayed half a bottle of Tilex on to the computer monitor (we haven't even had it for a year) it is fried and died Thursday night.

Sunday- Emptied make-up powder all over the bathroom vanity; it got into and on so much stuff and smeared lipstick over towels. I am so glad I got up a little early today.

Now I know what you are thinking, "how on earth did he get into that stuff? Shouldn't you have it out of reach?" Well, the kid is Houdini. He can get into everything. He can lock and unlock doors. Height is never a problem he just grabs a chair, the cooler, a stool and makes a terribly unstable platform to get to his desired destination. The biggest problem is when I discover his creations he looks at me with open eyes and a smile, "I'm cleaning" or "I'm just drawing, it doesn't matter."

Jack conversation

Mum: Jack do you like dogs
Jack: Daddy likes dogs. I like cats.
Mum: Do you want to get a Cat?
Jack: I want to get a rabbit like beth
Mum: Auntie Beth does have rabbits, how many?
Jack: two
Mum: do you remember their names?
Jack: no, whats their names?
Mum: Twit and rolo
Jack: I eat rolo's
Mum: yeah I know she named them after cany bars weird huh?
Jack: no it's not weird, it's just OK
mum: Well what color rabbit do you want?
Jack: urmm... Green.
Mum: I don't think there are green rabbits. rabbits are usually brown, white, black or grey.
Jack: I want a black rabbit
Mum: Oh great! What will you call it?
Jack: urm... rolo.

Jack Attack is crazy and busy but I sure love him.

I can definitely relate. Jack and Makayla are all too similar and it makes me feel a little better that I don't have the only child like that. Maybe it really is a toddler thing. I keep telling myself to hang in there and this is all worth it. And it definitely is. As soon as they drive you up the wall, they do something else to make you love them even more.

Tell him to knock it off or he is going to have to come to naughty Idaho and live with his cousins!

I read this post to Jared, and he got really excited for Jack. Apparently, green bunnies do exist (well, at least genetically mutated ones that turn green under fluorescent lights!) This one's name is Alba. Maybe you can get him one of these: http://www.ekac.org/gfpbunny.html#gfpbunnyanchor


But only if he stops destroying things! Crazy!

You can't make this stuff up, he is a crazy adventurer!

Crystal said...

My world is quite similar :) And I don't think that anyone who has had children would wonder how he got into all of those things... IT JUST HAPPENS no matter what measures us parents take. There's only so much we can do, huh? I think every mom understands :) And what a SMARTY that little guy is! That conversation was too cute.

Rachelle said...

WOW! I have to say I am impressed with his ability to get into things, what a crazy dude :)
