Re: 16 month old just figured out the Poland Spring Dispenser

said by Bob4:

Your nightmare is just beginning.

I can sense it already. I thought this week was enough of "new tricks" as he keeps dialing people stored in the caller ID of our home phone. Called the plumber three times, Chase once, and a few other people. Now he's emptying water on the kitchen floor. At least he's not banging on my laptop's keyboard like an irate chimpanzee anymore, since the phone and the water bottle dispenser has distracted him.

Thanks for the help everyone.

Phhht. Amateurs.

Wait until they start to drive. Then you can watch your hair turn grey as you look at yourself in the mirror (assuming you *have* hair by then).

Another one to watch out for is when they start dialing 911.
Finally come to find out she just wanted to see the fire truck like the one on Disney TV. We only found that out after several visits by the local PD.
Try explaining that to the PD "How come your not watching your watching your child?" Because I was using the toilet! Kids are quiet and sneaky fast.

Best of luck.

Sounds like some kids need better upbringing.

He was a toddler - he has not done it in years.... He didn't know what 911 was. Get a life.

Hah that happened as well to me. We thought we caught it in time BEFORE she pressed talk, nope she did and we got a call back. Yes they are FAST.

Always put them in a playpen when you need to step away, even for a minute.

A child who calls 911 because it makes the fire truck appear is smart enough to escape a playpen in seconds...

LOL You obviously don't have children. It doesn't matter what you do as a parent, they are little people and have minds of their own, and therefor they get into trouble.

My Mom tried, but some of us just gotta do what a kids gotta do

I can vaguely recall embarrassing the crap out of my Ma with such acts as figuring out where the off button was on escalators
and
back when there were huge cash registers at stores like Sears, that had rows of buttons for each decimal for the prices entered & each salesperson had their own drawer in the stack
I figured out how to pop the drawers open

If my Ma dared turn her back on me, I was at the register or escalator in 2 seconds...

Yup same here. That was fun....they had to come out and check no matter what I said. After that phones went up on a shelf.

Forget playpens, those were for mere mortals.
She could go over kid gates (even 2 tall) like spiderman - I so wish I had thought to video tape that.
After a while the only thing the gates were doing was injuring the adults that tripped over the gates or trying to go through them.
As with all kids they quickly grow out of that phase right in to another one
