So i gave my almost two year old a pack of stickers and a sticker book (she's good about not putting anything in her mouth unlike her book eating counterpart friend) and she was playing very quietly while i am sitting her mylottng with baby in my lap sleeping. I looked over 2 mins after i gave her the sheet.. She has the stuckers stuck to daddy's PS2, her chair, the floor, everywhere!! lol she was REALLY awesome with them the first three sheets i gave her in previous weeks, she put all the stickers in the book i gave her for them after i explained to her she needs to ONLY put the stickers in there. lol untill today!! I just thought this was funny.. in a way.. and figured i'd share. . anything like this happen to you ?

Its called creativity mom, sheets got boring, time to make art of other things LMAO.... My middle son when he was about 2 and learning to go to the big boys potty, woke up in his crib one morning after the night before having had spinach for dinner (which he still loves to this day) and proceeded to finger paint the walls, the crib and his bed toys with green poop. LMAO He took off his pull up to do so. By the way He is the artist in the family, so you never know where that creativity is going to go with them.. He does Tattoos :)))) However he has moved on to ink, now and no longer uses green poop.

lol hubbys son did that once too when he realized how to take his diaper off.. so far no poop painting in my house. . i keep a pretty good eye on her usually.. and she sleeps with me so she doesnt get the chance in the morning! I think thats when step son did it, before his mom woke up one morning. they turn evil when they are quiet i swear.

Yes they do Sissy, I have always said as long as I can hear the racket I know what they are up to, its when the house is quiet and the air is still that you have to worry :)))) Oh Ladies I did not clean it up ..... LMAO DAD did.... yellow platex gloves and a bucket of bleach :))) I dunked the kid in the bath tub whilst dad scrubbed down the room :)) yes indeed I gaged that morning more than once...LMAO

When my oldest was about a month old, I had her picture taken at this special photographer for my husbands birthday..She had left this picture alone until she was about 2 and took a pen and drew on it..It was the only picture like that and the photographer was no longer in business, no way could I have replaced it..I still have that picture, to remind me that given time, children will try and test you..

Yea i have noticed she tests me more since i had the second baby. . she used to listen a whole lot better. . i think she realizes that sometimes i cant just jump up and make her stop what she is doing.. example: when i'm feeding the baby..

Oh yes, Sissy, you should start looking for signs of jealousy now and try to spend some good time with her..I know it is hard, because you are tired from having the baby and not getting enough sleep, just make sure your first one isn't getting ignored, by everyone..This includes all visitors that come and see the baby, see if they wouldn't mind playing a little with your older one also while they are there, so that she doesn't feel left out..

oh yes we are trying our best to keep everyone happy. its hard though cause a lot of the time i am here alone while daddy sleeps in the day. so sometimes the new baby is left to scream a little while i'm getting dinner ready or playing with the elder. lol.

LOL We had a 5 year old foster kid that loved stickers and her mom would give them to her all the time. She loved sticking them everywhere. I remember at her school she had a teacher that would cut out a wide sheet of construction paper (kind of like a wide bookmark) and let her stick all the stickers on it she wanted and then she'd laminate it for her. I still have a couple tucked away. It was a neat idea and the kids still got to enjoy looking at the stickers. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

That is a good idea.. We have a winnie the pooh sticker book i got at the dollar store.. its got that waxy paper inside so that they can stick and restick the stickers.. which i dunno if its a good idea or not.. because she can take themm back out of the book and put them everywhere again! lol. Its cute though, i couldnt get mad! she puts sticks over everythings eyes.. which is weird.. but made me laugh. every picture of winnie the pooh has balloon stickers on them!!

When I got my first pc I stuck stickers all around the monitor...in fact the monitor that Hubby is using now is one of my old ones and yup, it's covered in stickers. I don't know why I did it but it seemed to cheer me up. My new pc only has 2 and they are on the CPU. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

Sounds like my daughter when she was that age and it lasted a good 2 years after we had stickers everywhere and anywhere. She is 6 now and at times, still can't help herself. Good luck with putting the stickers in a book that will only last a few seconds...just get used to stickers everywhere. They become a part of your decor...LOL

hehe That must have been an awesome sight with stickers decorating just every where. i did not have something just like that happen to me. but my little girl go ahold of one of myfamily albums and was too quiet. I went to see what she wasdoing and oh my gosh, she had quietly pulled each and every photo out of the album. I wanted to shake her but the photos were not really harmed. I asked her why and she said want to send to grandma. I was floored. then I said grandma already has all these pictures honey. she started to put them back and big brother came over and helped her. the same big brother who had recently been caught starting to cut the fringe off one of my towels I asked him why he was doing that. his replay was I thought that the whole towel was unraveling. this child is now fifty and has a very high IQ

LOL my son has done that, he has put stickers all over the sofa, floor, table, etc. He knows that the stickers go on the paper but he thinks its funny to scatter them everywhere else!

My youngest will be 2 on the 3rd of next month. She likes stickers too. She doesn't put much in her mouth like her older brothers and sisters did either. My daughter likes to stick them all over mommy and daddy instead. She puts a couple on herself and peels them off. The rest; mom and dad get to wear. Lucky us!

Just yesterday my daughter was playing with stickers and they ended up stuck to a couple of windows and the kitchen cabinets. My daughter is usually pretty good too, but sometimes she tends to do things she's not supposed to just to see how I react.

Sounds like she's very artistic there, putting it everywhere except her mouth, which is good, but then again, on hubby's stuff and the furnishings, aargh my son has done that and boy they are hard to get off sometimes. Our last coffee table we had before it broke had lots of different stickers on it - i thought it was cute but nobody else thought it was LOL

Oh I had my share of that with my niece when she was little. Stickers on the side of the computer monitor, on furniture, and walls. You name it she put them there. They weren't always the easiest of things to get off either. In fact I think we still have some stuck on things

Haha, I guess she figured that she could put them anywhere this time since you didn't give her the little talk. Kids...gotta love em! And thanks for sharing! Cute story!

My two year old loves stickers too! And they almost never end up in her sticker book. She likes to put them on her arms, her legs, her belly, her infant sister, etc... We also have a little problem with crayons. She loves to colour, but not in colouring books for some reason. She loves to colour on the walls, furniture, her sister... She's a little stinker.
