The very first Terrible Twosday guest post! How exciting!

I have a fabulous post to start us off written by Mark from The Adventure Of Sonny And Luca. Mark is a stay at home dad with his hands full!!! His blog is fantastic so if you haven’t visited it already, please do.

Snot, Poo, and Tears

There’s a (not so) commonly held belief that in this year of 2012 an alignment of negative forces will signify the beginning of the end of the world. Not wanting to sound pessimistic but I think it may just have happened!
Trying to change the boys first nappies in the morning is like hunting down a pack of wildebeest, picking off the weakest animal first, which is normally Luca as Sonny always seeks sanctuary in his ‘nest’ behind the sofa.
Yesterday morning however Sonny’s guard was down and as he strolled past me I pounced, holding him down on the change mat and whipping off his nappy. At this point all the aforementioned forces fell neatly into place.
First was the tearful tantrum of a toddler out-maneuvered. His response was to fight back with an explosion of unrestrained poo, before completing the trilogy with a sneeze that contained more than his own body weight in tearful snot, and that defied the laws of physics by ending up in his eyes; the whole time thrashing around like a fish out of water.
As I attempted an emergency clean-up the realisation hit me that not only did I not have any nappies in the room, but both the wipes and tissue box were empty.
At this point Luca switched from the hunted to the hunter and circled the situation stumbling over toys to get the best view.
By the time I returned to the room it resembled what I can only describe as a Pete Doherty post-party flat!
I’m not sure why I’m recounting this story, other than my councilor always told me that traumatic events needed talking about, and if no-one listened then the next best thing is to put it in writing.

On a lighter note, the days comedy value was entirely down to Sonny.
Not wanting to go home after a walk to the market, his strop was interrupted by walking straight into a lamppost before bouncing off in a way I thought only possible in cartoons, and landing in a heap on the floor. Perhaps I shouldn’t have found it so funny, but he compounded his embarrassment by turning to a group of mothers behind us and proclaiming,
“Phew, that was close… unbelievable!”

Brilliant post and a great reminder to keep wipes to hand and always see the funny side! 😉 Sorry Mark!

I have some great guest posts lined up and Bob has been getting into mischief too! I knew that she would as soon as I finished the Terrible Twosday linky! 😉 Hope your little ones have been behaving! If they haven’t and you would like to write a guest post let me know.

Happy Twosday!!!

P.s. Have you seen the fabulous competition that I have running on my blog! You have the chance to win your memories preserved in silver!!!

    was a bit worried about what little brother might share with a wider audience!
    Liking your blog, epsecially liked the picture of child with spuds.
    You’d probably like my OH’s blog – its education based (early years) but loads of ideas for activities too.
