Here’s a laugh for you. Yesterday my four year old daughter cornered the dog and made her a ‘queen’. Humorously, the dog avoided her for the rest of the day.
Ztp junior has recently decided coloring anywhere except a coloring book is a great idea. Especially this patch of wall, where her most numerous offenses occur. So I got her a whiteboard in an effort to direct her toward coloring something specific as opposed to the wall, the counter, her chair at the table, and so…
This just happened, thought it was the best explanation of parenting I can come up with; especially with a 3 year old.
Every now and then, we fall in love with a car or motorcycle. We part ways with some of our hard-earned cash and bring home a brand new toy. Or rusty, broken, old, partially-working object that will eventually become a toy if we don’t give up and sell it. Here’s how to discipline your first-born motorcycle.
Also, is it just me or is uploading images borked, and does Kinja refuse to acknowledge daylight savings time?
Ztp Jr just shouted she was done eating strawberries. I went to pick up the bowl and found every single strawberry had a bite mark....that goof, :).
It broke, I was suppose to fix it, I forgot about it. Ztp Jr saw it, wanted it fixed that moment. MrsZtp backed her up. So glue, clamps, we’ll see what happens.
We had my son’s 9th birthday party today. Jedi Academy was the theme. The last hour was an epic pool noodle lightsaber battle in the back yard. I may have dressed up like Darth Vader. Nothing wrong with with playing with the kids from time to time. Especially when you can wear a cape. Now watching Bathurst and I am…
I got ice cream for my wife because she doesn’t feel well. She told our kid during dinner “if you want ice cream, you have to eat your noddles.” Mommy turned her back and our kid tried to throw her food in the garbage. It’s upsetting but I’m a little proud of her problem solving abilities. Anyone else have a good…
Being a parent has some weird quirks. One is that you get to see a miniature version of you grow up. Another is that you get some humorous stories to share. This one is short, but it’s sometimes the norm with my 2 year old daughter.
Dammit, Archnemesis_Goldenhair! Control your kid, would ya?
So my wife, my 2 yr daughter, and I all went out to a Bible study earlier. During the middle of the lesson, my kid (of course), while reading a Disney Cars book, starts shouting the one word I keep forgetting she knows, “FIRE! FIRE!”
Or at least I will at about 7pm eastern. An official father of a 2 year old, which means my gray hairs will keep on coming. [Pic of her favorite HW car in real life.]
This is my living room. As a responsible father, I have decided that it is my duty to create a fort for my soon to be 2 yrs old daughter. I just have have no idea 'where' to put it in this room. Also, any other tips would be much appreciated.
Sometimes it's easy to forget that your toddler isn't just saying random things, but there is meaning behind each word. Like someone who doesn't know your native language. Case in point.
...With a year's subscription to Car and Driver magazine. I believe she has been saving up points from the cereal boxes. And I'm not the only one liking the magazine, so does my almost 2 yrs old daughter!
A conversation I had in the comments today made me wonder what Oppo's opinion is on this. Would you let her have something sporty, or would you get her something dull to discourage reckless driving? Would you buy him a luxury car if you had the means, or do you scoff at the idea of heated leather swaddling a…
...of little ztp jr. As my wife puts it...
Parents that let their kids run around touching other people's cars, watch them do it and not doing anything about it should have their parenting privileges revoked.
We all know better but let's keep an eye out for less responsible parents and notify someone if you see this! Story below-
