Did you know, pizza slides under the closet door? Yup, put the little guys in the closet for a time out! Hehe...joking a side, maybe take the kiddies to a park early in the morning and let them run rampid. This will drain some energy out of them. Also, do you show them attention when they do "bad" stuff? More or less, are you feeding into their naughtiness? They may be looking for a reaction from you, which means attention. Try ignoring them when they do "bad" things. Walk away and take a deep breath and than return to clean the mess-up. Praise them to help you clean it up too. Reward them for a job well down, even if their help was not what you expected. If all else fails, call Nanny 911. Hope this helps.
