Oh S'mores...I love the little guy but lately?!
What is the count now...2 pair of Animal sandals, 1 pair of Animal trainers, 1 pair of J shoes, 1 new pair of Animal sandals, my VS 100 ways bra and Baby's hand (there's probably more but these are the major items).
What is that you might ask...Those are the number of items that are not S'mores that he has chewed to bits. I was so frustrated when I found the second pair of sandals destroyed because they were only 2 days old. And then even more so when I noticed the third new ones chewed. Seriously?! Baby's hand was a shock.
Scene: Morning, Q-tip was putting his shoes on for school and Animal was cuddling with Baby on the couch.
Animal: hmmm, what happened to Baby's hand?
Q-tip: S'mores ate it.
Animal: all gone?
And then he spent the next 10 or so minutes inspecting the mutilated and missing hand of his doll. The doll he has had since he was a wee chap. The doll he loves and refuses to replace and no other doll can compare to. The doll with the dreads in her hair and holes in the heals of her pj's. So sad, so sad. That hideous looking creature now has a missing hand! She is no longer allowed in public.
Animal didn't seem traumatized which is good (I'm not sure what to think and J was probably bothered the most) and I can only hope he has learned to keep his things upstairs. As if! I lecture, remind, nag and whatever else over and over "take all your things upstairs. NO toys downstairs!" But do they listen? No! S'mores has many toys of his own but I think I need to make a point to pick up a few more. I was avoiding buying him many plastic toys as he seems to destroy and eat these rather quickly. Now I am thinking he needs these because his main objective is destruction. He has stuffed squeaky toys which he loves. Nyla bones which keep his attention for a very short time. And also kongs but they too only keep his attention long enough to get the treat out. I need to pick up some random cheap things I guess.
New mission, find LOTS of cheap chew toys for my little chewing monster. And somehow teach my children to keep their stuff upstairs and the gate closed. The second may take a while...
