Fourth weekend in a row on solo parent duty.
We’re at the “dad builds a wooden block tower as quick as he can before baby knocks it down and laughs” stage
pretty much what's happening to begin. He's been playing the crap out of a Lego game on his Amazon free time app so hoping he gets the hang of putting g things together and just imagining things. But so far I build cars.
I'm glad the 6 year old has gotten the hang of Legos on his own now, he even built the millennium falcon totally by himself
My back just about dies sitting on the floor at his lego table top I built for him
Banner day for my 3 yo...
- Hit the 5 yo in the head with a metal shovel
- Ran behind the car as I was backing out of the carport (poor)
- Poked the 5 yo in the eye with a paintbrush
- Poured my beer out while I was riding my bike around the cul-de-sac
While this all sounds like parenting failure on our part, I swear it’s the kid’s fault.
100% kids fault
Used kids play-doh to stop a leak in his inflatable pool #macgyverdad
3-yo is still alive, all is good.
6yo used some of his bday money to buy a fortnite battery powered nerf gun. Now he's drunk on power from toting it around and threatening his 2yo brother with it.
2yo refuses to potty train. He's 3 in 2 months and shows no interest in the potty. Tried putting him in underwear, he just pisses in them and keeps wearing it like a diaper.
Adding a mini marbles to go with me wife and step son. Been trying for a bit but I guess the early work from home gave us some extra time.
had this same issue with my son at that age. Not sure if you have him in a daycare but as soon as my son went to a daycare he potty trained within a week. I asked the head lady about it and she said she sees that happen with boys all the time.
We have some neighbors down the street with a two year old daughter. The mom is friends with my wife and the dad likely has mild Aspergers. He’s fine in small doses but is hard to handle on a regular basis. Ever since the lockdown, they come up to our house multiple times a day to play...every single day. It was fine at first, but it’s getting pretty obnoxious 6 weeks in.
The mom and the daughter have been playing in our driveway by themselves for the last 30 minutes waiting for us to come out. I told my wife to handle the situation because I don’t want to be held hostage by neighbors that don’t understand social cues.
Bottomless days is what finally worked for us. Just a couple incidents in the floor to begin but not having the comfort of underwear/pull-up on made her go sit on the potty. She didn’t like the feeling of going on herself.
Congratulations man, that’s awesome
Marbles gets a nickel and the boss gets a dime, that’s why he fucks on company time.
constipated baby suggestions? she's 13 months.
prunes, can usually find them in those capri sun looking pouches
Christ, we went through this for a while. We're still going through her holding it in and constipating herself despite her being mostly well potty trained (except nighttime) for peeing on the potty. If adding some juice to water or lots of prunes doesn't work (or she doesn't like them) then just start mixing in some miralax with her milk every day, that is straight up what multiple pediatricians recommended to us. Try to lay off bananas and tons of grains and encourage her to drink as much water as possible.
The idea is that your kid may have had a hard painful bowel movement at some point and is scared to poop, making it softer even if she's crapping all the time will help her get over that fear.
My youngest is currently playing Fortnite and Roblox at the same time. I feel like I have done something wrong raising this child but I’m also impressed.
My son loves roblox now.
Seeing these two posts is quite appropriate.
Conversation I just heard my 6yo son have with his Echo Dot in his room:
K: "Alexa, how do you get Avengers Endgame skins on Fortnite?"
A: "From the worldwide web.....2019...."
K: [mildly annoyed] "Alexa turn off"
A: "blah, blah, blah..."
K [elevated annoyance] "Alexa Turn off"
K: [Angrily] "Alexa turn off and never talk again"
Also, his Fortnite gaming skills have picked up immensely, in a short period of time. He was very bad, and had no idea what he was doing like 2 weeks ago, now I'll play 2 player split screen on the XBox One with him and he's bossing me around, telling me drop the fishing rod and pick up a "tac". I'll be trying to build us a nice farm house and he's acting like he's directing the invasion of Normandy.
My youngest talks down to me like I’m stupid when I play those kinds of games with him.
Tonight our 6 yr old dropped the "you guys are mean and never get us anything" because her friend has something she doesn't. Have fun sleeping on the floor tonight and seeing what it's like to really not have anything tomorrow!
My four year old told us this weekend that he wanted to live with my sister because she had a swimming pool.
3 year old won't stop putting his hands down his pants. like literally all the time. any tips to get him to stop? We currently have him in a onesie that's too small. it's pretty funny.
Put icy hot on his hands
My 4 yr old went through a hands in his pants phase for a few months around the holidays. When I asked him why he kept putting his hands in his pants, he responded "because my willis keeps pointing down and I want it to point up!"
mine says "there's cookies down there" lol
Practicing the flip up technique early on will pay off tremendously in middle school
Anyone have any great gift ideas for Mother’s Day that I can copy?
this mug that keeps popping up on my damn Facebook feed
I've got a son now. Been thread eligible for a month now. I don't really sleep anymore. I work and then come home to take care of the baby so my wife gets a break. Consider this my intro thread. Thanks.
Congrats! This may very well be my reality soon.
need to whip up something fast too cause it looks like everything i bought for the may onslaught (birthday, mother’s day and anniversary within a 10 day span) of holidays ain’t getting here on time
During this quarantine I challenge all of you to get rid of that box of cables you've been saving for 2 decades. No you're not going to need that random _____ cable you got from your cable company 11 years ago.
and out to my garage i go to trash that directv bag of shit i’ve stashed for 5+years
I think I had two of them in that box
Haha. I just did that last weekend.
But what if I need one?
It'll be so tangled with the others you won't want it.
This sounds like a challenge
Every time I would go looking for a random cable in a box like that it would never be there anyways.Those collections end up being repeats like 4 HDMIs, 3 coax cables, 5 power cables for items you threw out and literally go to nothing.
Just today I found a USB and USB extension cable I needed for my outdoor speaker. You can take my crate of cables when you pry it from my cold dead hands.
I don't even know what I have that would use a non-micro-usb charger anymore and that box had several.
Found one thing (PS3 controller). And I have a cable for it already attached.
This but this did not happen to me today.
fuck you i'll never get rid of it.
Somehow 1/3 hit double digits today
My 3 year old just picks his nose all the time. Unashamedly and constantly. He plays with himself some too, but a fraction of the time he spends picking his nose. He works 20 hours of overtime a week at his nose picking job.
