My kids spend so much time trying to kill each other they havent got time to ruin the house, they leave that to the dogs. Saying that my ten year old sleeps in the top bunk and keeps headbutting the lightbulb in his room every time he gets out of bed. He goes through a bulb a week thank god my local authority keeps giving free energy saving lightbulbs away

Molly - not to be a noodge, but its "do" "what did you do, what did she do" then there is "due" "when is the library book due?" "how much is due to the tax office?" "I am due to be at the office by 7"

and its "whoop" can of whoop ass I know the english/american language can be confusing at times.

He's two so there's only so much we could do. We told him it was wrong, he said sorry and gave her a hug and our daughter learned if she left her stuff where he could get it, bad things can happen.

My son threw my daughters brand new Ipod in the fishtank among the everyday carnage he contributes. My daughter never wrecked one thing.

[deleted account]

my makeup bag my hoover the tumbledryer my bed ,and when i was a single parent 15 years ago my then daughter got my purse and ripped up my milk tokens and my last fiver .another time not long after giving birth to my now 14 year old son my daughter put a whole packet of maternity santuary towels down toilet and blocked pipes i had to call council in to clear blockage. but i could write a book on things my eldest did as toodler

[deleted account]

I just remembered one that my daughter did as a toddler. She liked the watch my dad had given me for Christmas. So she would chew on while I was wearing it, she was relentlous about it so I gave in. Thinking that it was "water proof" yeah water proof doesn't mean drool proof. That watch had drool inside the face of the watch and even kept accurate time for a week after that. I liked that watch it was a sharp looking focil, but it's face was almost neon orange (not exactly my style) but I still liked it. The other thing she did was that one day she got a hold of my keys and chewed the fabric boot on it that a lady had brought back from Peru to give to me for helping her with her tramatized niece. I still have the boot, but it no longer has a sole on the bottom that said Peru. I can't look at without picturing that first moment I saw my baby with those keys in her hands. I couldn't help but laugh at her.

Geeze - I've been wracking my brain for something to submit..

My carpet.... the carpet that had been installed for less than a month that they burned a hole through. A circular 4 inch in diameter hole that went completely through the pad with a 200watt poultry heat lamp.

@Suzette, talking to the people at the housing office most of the time gets you nowhere, at least that's my experience. You often get more information by talking to the person they send over.

Now back to the topic. One thing I remember is this big beautiful handmade bowl my mom gave us one Christmas. I had it on a tablecloth on the dining room table. Saga pulled on the tablecloth and the bowl went crashing on the floor. Thankfully she didn't get hurt but the bowl got smashed. Other than that, my lip gloss keep disappearing and I see my 4 year old walking around with sparkly lips...

@Iris, Thanks! That answers my question. You know how hard it is to get a straight answer from the housing/maintenance people. LOL

We had horizontal blinds in all our windows, but they never worked properly in the living room so I ended up calling maintenance. A guy came and changed them and put the verticals in. He told me that they were changing them all out BUT only when new people were moving in, unless they broke in the mean time.

@Tah,



You have to buy them? I know that if one of them gets ruined then you have to pay to have that one blind replaced... but I thought that you just had to call maintenance and have them come out and do it.



From what I understand they're supposed to be coming out and taking them all out and replacing them with the vertical blinds anyway because of the string things.



@Sharon, above is what I meant about the whole recall thing. They've been 'recalled' in post housing because of the strings and child safety.



(At least in the Army housing where I'm at that's what they said.)

horizontal blinds haven't been recalled just the ones with pull strings that have no safety measures. Which is why you now see them as individual strings or "pull away" tabs.

Sara, I've had so many instances of Wyatt coloring on things........he only gets washable crayons now. It comes off with soap and water, so easy!

[deleted account]

Wow...I guess I got lucky! My little girl is pretty tame and a neat freak at that! Her new favorite word is, "mess" and she says it when ANYTHING (hers or not) is out of place! "Mess Mama, MESS!"

The extent of her damage has been coloring in her own books and on her baby doll. On and once on the wall, but she got in BIG trouble for that and hasn't done it since. Came off with bleach and a little elbow grease.

Over the past 12 years my kids have ruined so many things it would be imposable to name, plants, carpets, furniture, DVD's CDs, books - including my first edition Harry Potter. The worst one is probably the music box my mum brought me from Itally. It was beautiful and wooden, my first so pulled it to bits and I'm not even sure how!

Well Noah ran straight through the lounge room window of our new house last week! He was fine thank god, only a couple of scratches and one little piece of glass in his back. $200 later no more running inside!

All of my lipsticks! I cried like a baby!

Cracked the neck of Jesses guitar.

Necklaces, bracelets and earings.

Most of the blinds.

Oh a today he managed to snap a dvd in half.

Haven't all the blinds, the horizontal ones anyway, been recalled? Or are you all talking about the vertical ones? I'm confuzzled. lol. Military housing tells us that the horizontal ones have been recalled and they're going to replace them with the vertical ones. Of course they have YET to replace them... that's a whole other topic... haha!

Speaking of wallpaper, my husband accidentally ripped some wallpaper off the wall trying to re-arrange our room (we rent so that's not good...) and Baylee tried to eat it. We should start a new thread 'things my husband has ruined' heh.

That website is awesome!! My son has been pulling wallpaper off of the walls all through the house!! It's so damn frustrating AHHHH!! BUT I guess it's not too bad because it all needs to be replaced anyhow. Hopefully he will come in handy when we actually WANT to pull it off.

So far nothing aside from a few library books and my treasured childhood version of Good Night Moon. I know it's coming though. Right now she's going through a neat freak phase. She comes into the front hall, which has dirt all over the floor because we've been in and out of the garden so much in the past week, looks around and says, "dirty house". Thanks kid! Everyone's a critic :-P

I think it might be easier to list the things they haven't ruined.



He broke my cell phone in half. He destroyed my sofas and my carpet. The coffee table. I've put everything I value most far out of his reach since the cell phone incident.

My mobile phone. He slobbered on it so bad that there was saliva running around behind the screen.

hhmm the livingroom carpet, yeah yeah, I know all kids crap out the carpet eventually. BUT this carpet had been installed for less than a week when my son put a 200watt heat lamp face down on the carpet and walked away. There is now a 4- 5 inch circle of melted/burned carpet/padding right down to the base. I dropped a throw rug on it.

That was funny and cute. My kids are still little, so only small things are ruined so far. Like fans, some of everyone's clothes that lives in our house, dvd's, cd's, toys (kinda a given), countless chap sticks, markers (they pushed down too hard and ruined bran new ones, also a kind of given at certain ages), blinds on windows, and if it weren't for the new magic erasers from Mr Clean, there would be a lot more to tell about. (I only suggest buying the origional verson, the other newer ones aren't worth much at all, stick with the origional.) Oh and also they have poured orange juice on the floor when trying to pour it in a cup, they filled the cup but the rest went on the floor, I saved the milk the next time, by then I had an idea what they went in the kitchen for. And also they have broken countless eggs, I don't mind most of this, I let them know not to do it again but don't blow up over it. I'm happy as long as we have a roof over our heads, and a car in the drive way, if one of those gets demollished as a result of the kids we may have a problem. I can't even fully imagine what they will ruin as they grow up, but I'm sure it will happen.
