DD is killing me..I'm exhausted!

Anyone else have a baby like this?She is 16 months old and this morning alone she...

climbed onto the bench and then onto the kitchen table about a hundred times

knocked over/climbed over/pulled apart my folded laundry that I am stacking on the living room floor as I fold

pulled all my measuring cups and things out of the drawer

tore apart ds's speech folder which she dragged off the table...we're talking shreds here..sigh

turned on and off the tv a hundred times

pulled cereal boxes out of the cabinet( a low one)

there is more I am sure..i am so tired of chasing this baby! She is asleep now after dropping ds off at preschool..I need the rest!

She is by far my craziest baby ever and if I take my eyes off her for even one milisecond..disaster is sure to strike! Good thing she is so dang adorable....who can get mad at that cute little face???

Re: DD is killing me..I'm exhausted!

my dd was the same way. When she was about 16 months old, I went to the bathroom and she stacked her toys up high enough to get some nasal decongestant drops off the entertainment center and was drinking them when I got back. We're talking like maybe two minutes here. I was panicking!

Re: DD is killing me..I'm exhausted!

You mean, all toddlers aren't like that???????

Both of my boys are high energy and have no fear. My mom used to call DS1 "Hurricane C" I think DS2 is even worse. And, like the PP's babe, DS2 doesn't think he needs to sleep much. I've nicknamed him "the energizer bunny." I've given up on trying to keep up with him.

Like you say, though, thank goodness they're cute!

Re: DD is killing me..I'm exhausted!

This is why I pretty much emptied all the cabinets they can get into..and put them in higher cabinets or elsewhere and I don't attempt dishes or laundry or any other similar task until they're asleep...not usually nap because they're easily disturbed, but when they're down for bed. Not saying that this is a possibility for everyone...but that the behavior, I think, is normal..and what drove me to do what I do (the stuff mentioned above)

Re: DD is killing me..I'm exhausted!

I think I am just getting old..LOL..with 7 kids and a dh who work til 8 at night, if I waited to do laundry and things....I would never sleep! But really, did I have to get the crazy baby at the end when I was approaching 40, why not when I had 1st dd at 22???!! Actually my older kids were probably almost as bad but maybe I just had lots more time/energy when I was younger and had fewer kids? Maybe we could get all the crazy kids together for a play date in a large area..with no tables to climb, and let them wear each other out!

Sounds like my 16 month old DD.

I've babyproofed what I really don't want her to get into and let her have at it at the rest. It's just easier for my sanity that way.

(BTW, for a while, her favorite thing was playing with the toaster oven door, which drove me NUTS... I had to rig a baby gate in front of it because we have a small apartment and nowhere else to move it.)
