Last week she put a matchstick in her ear.. and came yelping that it hurt! I was so scared that she had hurt herself really bad looking at how she was screaming. I took her twice to the doc just to be sure that nothing was hurt. Then she put a crayon up her nose! which I could easily pull out with tweezers.. Then yesterday she put the balloon blower in her mouth and tripped off the chair and it cut her palate. Bloodied mouth, screaming P.. I gave her an ice cream to eat and it calmed her down.. But Its so scary!!! Why is she doing all this now? I am afraid that she might try something more stupid.. I caught her trying to use the sketch pen on her lips as a lipstick [ I never wear lipstick] … I have seen her looking at the switches very curiously.. I have taped them all out but its just few days before she (easily) pulls them out.
I’m feeling guilty that maybe shez trying it to get my attention or maybe some kid in her day care tries it and shez copying them. [ Reminder to self – Talk to day care people] . I have sat her down and talked about dangerous and stupid things.. She nods her head and keeps saying sorry all the time.. But then she goes n does something more stupid.
All you mothers of naughty kids.. how are you handling it?
