My little man is 20 monthes old he is at a stage where all he wants to do is make huge messes. It is too cute.  If I put the laundry basket with clothes in it on the floor he crawls right over and starts throwing them all over the place. He does it to my dvd's, his toys, his diapers. As cute as it is I am getting tired of picking it up all the time. lol

Awe, cute but I know the frustration.   Brandon (5 1/2) just recetly stopped doing that, for the most part.  Though it has started back up since he's been on Christmas vacation.  It's not cute anymore lol!

Oop too he likes to empty cabinets so we gave him one of his own and we wait til he puts everything back . His cabinet is in the bathroom he climbs inside it's so cute just have to remember not to put towels in there.......... My Aunt gave him a drawer in her kitchen to play in when she cooks so he can be with her and not into things. She says it works.

We have these plastic balls (175 of them!) - the kind that go into a play pool. The girls love to throw them down the stairs.  I also gather them up and will put them in a cabinet or some other unexpected places.  We had 2 families over for dinner and 7 more kids, and the boys used them to throw them around. Lots of fun for a thrower!   At least Juliet has stopped throwing her food of the table!

This is actually good to hear! I thought it was odd that when I put my little one to bed I have to check and double check the room first because she gets into EVERYTHING!

Here is the bedroom dump list:

Diaper pail

dirty laundry basket

bottom 2 drawers of the dresser (yes, let's just go ahead and mix these in with the dirty clothes!)

Diapers

Wipes out of the wipe warmer

all of her blankets and all of the blankets she can reach from her 2 sisters who share the room and are unable to get out of bed and into things, let alone cover themselves back up!

This is on a good day!

Haha...so Nicholas isn't the only one.  He loves to empty the Tupperware cabinet first thing after breakfast.  I wait until nap time to pick them up and then he usually doesn't do it again until the next morning.  Here are a couple of pics.

Nathan loves to explore everything by emptying things out.  Thankful I can usually get him to help pick up if he thinks it's a game!

We call Julia the ONE WOMAN TORNADO!!!  Because after she has left a room it looks like a tornado has come through the place!!

           It makes me think of my little guy he is almost crawling, and has started grabbing everything to put in his mouth. He also gets so messy every meal or snack time.
