I have 4 year old twins. They seem to be bent on doing things that I don't want them to do....over and over again. In a positive light, if guided properly one could see this as developing into being resourceful or inventive. However, I'm not really feeling that positive about it.....rather, I'm feeling at wits end about it! They are ok as long as I'm in the room with them. As soon as I'm not, they are guaranteed to do something such as draw on the wall, color on/cut my important papers, etc. No matter how much attention I give them (doing crafts together, reading to them, them helping me bake, etc.) its the same story day after day. I have finally put locks on things like my desk and our pantry closet. But they've just moved onto other things. (This morning they moved a small table to the bookshelf and got all of our cameras off of the top shelf.) They are almost 4 1/2! Will this ever end? Have you had a similar experience? Any suggestions?
