Anyway, this whole thing is hilarious AND . . . makes me feel much less incompetent. Submit stuff! It's therapeutic!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

That is Funny! So glad that was them and not me! Save for a whole bottle of baby wash being used in one bath I don't think my kids have really ruined anything. *knock on wood*

OMG!<br>
I just hope my DS doesn't play with poop (DD doesn't), I have always been scared I would get a poop-playing kid! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Mine ruined a china cabinet. They were playing on a bench that goes with our kitchen table and managed to push it backwards into the cabinet, shattering both of the front glass panels. Amazingly none of the china or wine glasses were broken, but to this day my gorgeous wedding china and fancy stuff sits in boxes because I still can't afford to replace the china cabinet. I'm just happy no one got hurt.

We just replaced our living room carpet after dd spilled a jar of powdered fabric dye all over it. Lime green! She had to climb to get the jar.<br><br>
So we budgeted to replace the living room floor and had it all planned out, and then she went and spilled multiple bottles of paste food coloring (again, had to climb to get them) all over the carpet on the stairs. So now the stairs look like they've been tie-dyed, and replacing that carpet is not in this year's budget.

Oh my!<br><br><br>
We haven't had too many damages but when my son was a toddler he did put a pancake in the VCR.

The other day, I thought my older son (3.5) was asleep, and he was instead picking the paint off his bed. So, now, it is missing big chunks of paint. Lovely.<br><br>
They also broke a table recently, ripped a couch, and they broke a window blind.<br><br>
I was seriously the most mild mannered little girl. And I end up with 2 howler monkeys on crack. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

This is hilarious.<br>
My kids have broken every lamp in the living room (now we don't have any, what's the point?), 3 or 4 remote controls, a laptop (water + missing keys + random banging) and 6 baby gates (including the steel, hardware-mounted one). My 2 year old sharpied the kitchen table (which is why we didn't buy a really expensive one). My 4 year old knocked the 2 year old's front tooth out (and the adult tooth won't come in for 5 years). And my expensive area rug smells like pee, no matter how much we clean it.<br><br>
ah, that feels good to get out!

Friend of mines kiddos open a pot of gloss paint that was sitting in the living room...and painted the living room!...The table, the carpet, the tele, the sofas...everything... whilst she had a shower. You ever try to remove gloss paint off even a basic paint brush?...lol

I expected DD to be a wild little primate (monkey child), so we supervised her ALL the time until about 3.5 and childproofed really well. So only one 'washed' ipod so far. And I left that on the counter once when letting her play in the sink, so completely mommy error.<br><br>
All of our paint and other toxic things are locked in the garage or so high I can barely reach them. We'd have to buy a new ladder for DD to get to them.

Hmmm.....where to begin??<br><br>
Well, my then 3 y/o 'sawed' yes sawed with a real handsaw the front panel of my new SUV.<br>
Then one year later his then 3 y/o bro scratched his name into the side of the same vehicle with gravel<br>
Somewhere in between they (all three of them are suspects) loaded up the same vehicle's CD player with coins. It hasn't worked since and sometimes the radio cuts out (but if you hit the dash real hard it will kick back in, after all the loose change settles)<br>
Last week one of my daycare children pulled the seatbelt allllllll the way out - now it won't retract at all rendering that seat useless.<br><br>
Just after we built our house the twins scribbled red permanent ink all over the brand new hardwood.<br>
The following week it was orange crayon on the wall - the long, bare, off white wall.<br>
We had to have our newly paved driveway dug up after someone flushed multiple pairs of poopy Diego undies down the toilet, blocking the main pipe.<br>
Last week one of my daycare boys flushed a large wooden block down the toilet. Dh had to take the toilet off, bring it ouside and bang on it. Eventually the block fell out. ( I suggested putting the block in the child's diaper bag as a gift )<br><br>
When we lived on the boat we'd often hear 'plop' then uh oh. Me- what fell over? Kid- um, your book.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">

Vivi broke a printer when she was about 2, and following in her footsteps her little sister broke the DVD/Home theater system just before she turned two. I have sparkly pink nail polish on my brand-new hardwood floors, and one of them broke one of the wood blinds in our last house- which we had to fix in order to sell it! Oh, and all four of our dining room chairs have been stained with markers, food, paint, you name it. We've decided not to worry about it until they are much, much older!

Most of my "stuff" is yard sale or second hand, so it hasn't really mattered.<br><br>
One thing Corelle dishes are a must for a house with kiddos.

<span><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"> i'm not alone in having destructive kids lol not quite as bad as that, i don't think <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br>
my dd. caitlin pulled the top stair bannister off once also all my lo's so far (except caden, though that will probably soon happen) have all gone through phases of emptying shampoo bottles etc down the toilet, all over the bathroom floor etc etc, caitlin has flooded my bathroom twice, cameron used to think it was funny to roll toilet rolls down the stairs.<br>
when chloe was younger she used to like covering cameron in anything and everything twice she covered him in sudocreme, she drew all over him with green felt tip pen once and drew on the wall and bookcase then blamed him for it even though he was too little to reach where she had drawn lol.</span>

Well, my 2.5yo picked half the keys off my (previous) laptop, then jumped on the screen and cracked it. Ruined.<br><br>
One day, while they SHOULD have been taking a nap, the boys decided to make it snow upstairs and emptied an ENTIRE new container of Burts Bees baby powder all OVER my bedroom...the bed and floor were completely white. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
The younger one got into the paints (which were on top of the tall bookshelf...still not sure how he got them) and painted the school room, including the table, door and most of the floor. Thank goodness they were washable, so I got them off the door and floor, but the table is unfinished wood so there are still some places where the dark colors seeped in and stained it.<br><br>
There was also the incident with the black sharpie marker and the WALLS. FTR, while Magic Erasers work GREAT, they also take the finish off of semi gloss paint.

This site is awesome!<br><br>
Thankfully, DS has been a pretty laid-back kid. A couple of times he put DVDs in the VCR. He scribbled all over the walls of our townhouse with crayon right before we moved. And once he decided to do his own makeup while Mommy was in the shower. I did have a picture of that, but I can't seem to find it. He used dark purple and ended up looking like a goth kid. It was hilarious!
