Kids Sure Do The Darndest Things.........

By now most of you have probably read the story of the 4 year old Chinese boy who defaced his father's traveling passport while away in South Korea on a holiday. If the situation wasn't so serious, serious enough to get his father stranded in a foreign country as a result, it would be absolutely hilarious. The cheeky young child went all "Van Gogh" on his father's passport, drawing a beard, people and animals with a black pen. Though I found it incredible and funny, I was mortified on his father's behalf.

Of course, with toddlers, one can never be too careful which is why I always subscribe to putting all vital objects out of their reach always. I recall my daughter sneaking up after dinner one evening to have a gulp (or maybe more) out of the bottle of dettol the nanny had put out for her evening bath. I went berserk and even her usually cheeky self felt my angst that day. I can laugh over it now, but it was not a good feeling at all at the time.

Children are always inquisitive and they have little or no sense of danger in them at all, bless their dear hearts. :) After I had my first child, a respected friend of mine said to me "congratulations, you have just murdered sleep". I felt really weird getting that message but I waved it off in my euphoria of being a new mum. A few days later, I totally understood what she meant. LOL. You simply have to watch over them like a hawk for the rest of your life.

I absolutely love children and their innocence even when they get up to mischief.

What is the worst "angelic" (you know I meant horror, right. LOL) scare a child has given you or anyone you know?
