When she's 25 and her friends are trying to get her into knitting, she won't undersand why she gets the shivers and freaks out in the presence of yarn and needles.
Actually, DH and I were just joking about putting up an electric fence around my computer last night.
DD climbed the safety gate over the door to my office, climbed up on my desk, and inserted some "moneys" (that would be coins) into the CD ROM drive. We had to replace the whole drive unit (a dual drive, so also a DVD/R drive) last night as the "moneys" completely destroyed the thing.
In the past, DD has been known to climb over the safety gate, climb up on my desk, and attempt to eat the pushpins in the corkboard on the wall over my desk. (It's no longer hanging on the wall over my desk, as you might imagine.) The refrigerator is out, too -- I found her on the top of the fridge at 13 months. I'm telling you, I gave birth to a monkey! She is totally fearless! Luckily, we haven't had any trips to the ER with her, thus far!
We are working on the "mama's things" vs "DD's things". Like I said, she's two, so that's just now starting to maybe mean something to her.
Thanks for all the replies! I really needed to vent!
