Typical. Just typical.

Me to Mr C (aged 8) "don't open your new toy until we get home, just in case you lose a part".

Mr C opens the toy and loses the vital part to work the entire freakin' thing somewhere between dancing and home.

Me banging my head against a brick wall because no one listens to me..

That's all.

Goodnight.

Don't you just hate that - kids they push you to the limits, but then they give you so much joy as well. xxx

Oh how I can relate to this!!!! And if it's lost in the car it might as well be lost in Timbucktoo. Can we have just as good of a chance as finding it there.

Perhaps duct tape will fix the problem.

Exactly - I have a big sign in my house that says "WHY WON'T YOU ALL JUST OBEY ME????" Says it all really.... :D

Niice! I'm going thru this with my grandson.. I'd forgotten how adorably irritating the wee ones can be.. ; )

I had a similar story, but with a slightly different punch line. Bought ear phones for my little girl's mp3 player, and she opens the package and immediately loses the small ear buds which will help the ear phones fit into her ear. There goes $28. Bye bye!

that is why I have big hair.

Cushions the blow from the repeated beating my head against a wall.

Sounds like a "normal" kid thing to me. Why Why Why don't they listen?

I hear ya! Why is it no one listens to mother? Many a times I'll suggest something and Mr B says "that's a good idea." "Ya, i'm full of 'em. Problem is no one's listening."

Don't they say that children don't hear the "don't" -- only the part the comes after it?

I must have been a scary mummy because my kids wouldn't have dared. That's probably not a good thing......
