    My 3 yr old has a pet goldfish called appropriately enough Dorothy (like Elmo). Maybe I better watch the juice huh?!

    Low this week: Stubborn 5 year old. She promised to clean her toys up and change the litter box. Well this morning she decided she didn't want to. Even when I loaded up the truck to head to the DI (thrift store) with her toys. She didn't believe that I would do it, so the are now at the thrift store. It sucked, but her tune changed quickly. Oh well, don't tell her but I needed to get rid of them anyway...she had way too many toys.

    High: She signed her name to 18 christmas cards and only wrote the 'S' backwards once.

    Hahaha its great to read everyone's stories about their kids. It makes me wonder how annoying/sweet I was 10 years ago... Ha- My mom tells me I cryed constantly for a few months and they got little- no sleep a night. Good times

    Dagwood, I remember when my sister did that with my nephew and his Barneys. For some reason he had 5 or 6 stuffed Barneys. One day he decided not to pick them up for anything. You would think he was preschool, right, to be playing with Barneys but he was actually in first grade. My sister told him if he didn't pick them up they would go in the trash. He was so mad he picked them up and put them in the trash himself. She left them there (it was the office paper trash) for a few days and talked to him about taking care of his toys, apologizing, or anything so that she could let him take them back but he wouldn't budge. She wasn't going to make him pick up his toys if he didn't want to, so they could go out with the trash for all he cared. And so they did! (Although they ended up going in a bag in the closet and being handed down to the next Barney fanatic.) He is one stubborn kid - but an incredibly smart kid, too. I've never met anyone like him. He's a culinary prodigy - he won his first clam chowder contest when he was 8, and that was against adults.

    It is such a stubborn age. My daughter didn't believe I would really do it until we left minus the toys...the sad part is that I found this really cool Barbie house for $2 at a yard sale and it went bye bye, too. I did keep her crayons and coloring books, though...got to keep the creative toys around. And it isn't like she has a Barbie Cruise Ship coming for Christmas. :rolleyes

    Not so much a high/low, just something pretty funny, My 2 1/2 year old daughter picked up a jar of pickles today and started drinking the juice. - Yuck!

    High: My 2 year old son carrying a picture of me and him around everywhere, he even stashes it in the seat of his big wheel. He pulls it out and smiles at the picture and says Ma-ma.

    EXTREME LOW- While I'm taking a shower he decides to fill up his bucket with toilet water and dump it on me over and over!
