19 month olds kind of suck

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Why didn't anyone warn me??!!!

ALWAYS into EVERYTHING. Telling him NO doesn't make any difference. We have toddler-proofed to the best of our ability but some things cannot be kept out of his reach. UGGGH. I am so frustrated.

Tell me this too shall pass.

Oh my god my 3 yo is horrible. What I buy all depends on if my 3 yo can destroy it or not. I refuse to buy any kind of new furniture. All my crap is garbage cause its not worth having nice things.

Quoting Renraw:

Since becoming a mother wasn't warning enough, I'll let you in on a little secret; 3 year olds are satan's spawn. Just wait, they are awful little creatures.

At 22 months, not yet. DD likes to climb up on the window sill and swan dive onto the sofa. It's hell on the nerves.

No schedule other than meal times/bath time/nap time. He has several interactive toys. He's too young to take to a park yet (runs away.) Sometimes I give him crayons and paper. He's kind of at a weird in-between age and stage I feel. We play with his toys sometimes but I have chores/cooking/laundry blah blah to deal with. I fail.

Quoting alexsmomaubrys2:

Are you not keeping him entertained? He'll get into things if left to his own devices, it's your job to make sure he is occupied elsewhere.

Is he on a schedule? What are you doing with him during he day?

We need to tear out all our old carpeting but...oh hell no! Maybe when the kids are ten or older!

I had an early walker and can sympathize. For the first few months, she was content just toddling around. Then came 13 months. It's been hell ever since (she's just about 18 months now)! I wouldn't change a thing, though. :)

Good luck, Mama. You can do it.
