Friday night during a treasure hunt at the zoo, Dominic picked up a bunch of sand and threw it in a 4 yr old little boy's eyes! I didn't even realize he had done it till Dave yelled at me to stop him! I felt so bad for the little boy who was crying because he had sand all over him. I scolded Dominic but that's about all I could do. He then proceded to throw sand in my hair and on my shirt! Guess he figured if he couldn't do it to him he'd do it to me!
Saturday we went to a Thomas the Tank store that sells nothing but Thomas train items.
Note to Self: Never take an train addicted toddler to a train store.
Bad Bad Idea. We had a hell of a time getting out of the store once he saw all the blue Thomas crap. He started screaming "choo chooo!!!!!! Mamma choo choo! Daddy choo choo!" He then started grabbing any and everything he could get his hands on and then tried to break the buckles off the stroller so he could get out and run around. This place was WAY over priced and I didn't want anything broke because then we'd have to pay for it. It takes Dom about 20 seconds sometimes to break a brand new toy. Well after having gallons of tears escape from his eyes we got the hell out of there. We bought him a Thomas cup and train whistle. Dave and I are going to go there sometime without him and see what we can find him for Christmas.
Sunday we went to Sams to get some food. Dominic was quite angry because he hates their double basket where 2 kids can sit in the front. He always beats his sister and Dave was getting onto him about being good. He then took a train we bought him at Dollar Tree and threw it at a man next to us hitting him in the shoulder just barely missing his head!!! I told the guy I was really sorry and we took Dominic's train away which made him turn into a rabid chimp with his screetching and monkey moves trying to get out of his seatbelt in the basket. Oh brother. Dave finally gave it back, shoved tons of samples in his mouth and we got out of the store safely without anyone else getting hurt.

We decided for something fun to do today that we'd take the kids bowling but as it turned out the only one who had fun was Alexzandra. Dominic didn't get the whole concept and refused to roll the bowling ball down the lane. It was more or less Dave doing it for him. He was more interested in putting the ball back into the hole and watching it shoot back out. Dominic screamed and bawled nearly the whole hour. Funny seeing Dave stressed out from it. I told him this is nothing and if he was so upset by his behavior now then it's a good thing he never stays home with me during the day! I think next time should be alittle easier with him. He was really tired and needed a nap. We all know how that goes!

Those are fireworks there. Dominic disappeared out the door today and into the garage and started pulling out fireworks he wanted to light. Unfortunately he knows where they are because Dave takes the kids out to light them every once in awhile.
Here is a latchwork kit I've been working on. He found my latchwork tool and started tearing yarn off of it.
Now we have Dave trying to wind my foil up after Dominic strung it out all over the front room floor at dinner time.
So that's about all I caught for the day. I tried taking a pic of a bite mark on Alex's back but I can't get it to come out on the camera. She has a nice purple bruise from Dominic taking a little nibble out of her.

Today Dominic received a new Thomas the Tank set from his nana and papa from Arizona. He was very happy, jumping up and down when he opened the box. I'm happy for him as well but we have a big problem with Dominic and his trains. He has an obsession with them and plays nonstop for hours on end. If you try to put it away he'll freak out and turn into a monster beating the crap out of you for taking his pride and joy. He also is very possessive when it comes to the other kids playing with them as well.
I had a hard time catching him doing something new that was bad. He took the couch pillows off 5 times, threw some toys but nothing major destroyed or adventerous. I did catch this on video. Enjoy!!
Wait I did catch something bad! This pic to the left is my laundry that he threw down my stairs onto the basement floor. When he finds a basket of clothes I've folded, he scoots the basket to the stairs and down it goes. He has done this tons of times. You'd think I'd learn to put it away real fast.

Here we go with another daily routine of his. Those are my couch back pillows laying there on the floor. He takes all 4 off the couch and then jumps all over them. NEVER buy pillow back couches when you have children. BIG mistake I learned. I pick these things up about 10 times a day and that's no exaggeration.
Like I previously said, he likes to ingest cleaners, pour milk and juice all over the floor out of the fridge, eat Nestle Chocolate powder, and oh yes freeze up my laptop that lives in the kitchen so therefore he's gated OUT. He tries all the time to climb this gate but can't since he's not completely a monkey. He's just a monkey only when he climbs up and over the chain link fence.

This is a story......a story of a little boy named Dominic. Dominic is my son, a very active 2 yr old boy who drives me insane. His daily adventures are some days mild and other days extreme. Here's a brief overview of our little guy.
- He tends to run away at any given chance, therefore we have installed 6ft high locks on both doors leading out of the house to confine him. At 23 mths we found him down the road in the ditch full of freezing cold water playing about 400 ft from our house.
- He is very possessive of toys. If anyone touches certain toys he will physcially harm them. He beats up his 5 yr old sister, other kids his age usually by chucking a toy at their head, pushing them to the ground, or pulling hair.
- He can scale a 5 ft chainlink fence with no shoes on.
- He has wrote on my walls and furniture with crayons or pens more times than I can even count. Our 60 inch TV has scratches all over the screen from crayon.
- He killed our fish recently by placing a book of matches in the tank.
- He kicks our dachshund Bailey and pulls his tail.
- We have a very hard time going out to eat with him because he causes scenes. Anywhere we go, we make it a buffet place because the quicker we can eat and leave the better. He once got mad and took his balloon at Applebees and pushed it into my mashed potatoes and then shook the balloon getting gravy everywhere.
- There's been 2-3 instances when he's found my cleaners and squirted cleaner in his mouth. I keep them all locked up but occasionally he'll climb on my kitchen counter and get a bottle.
- He refuses to stay in his carseat when we go somewhere and unbuckles while I'm driving down the road.
- Lotion or any other substances in tubes or bottles must be put out of his reach. He has taken whole bottles of my lotion and dumped in on my carpet plus put it in his hair for that extra soft smelly feel.
So there's what you have to look forward to. I plan to put pictures of his damage on here when I can so it may be a kid crying from being beaten, me crying from going crazy, or another piece of furniture ruined. Who knows!
