Hunter has it.
And Mark and I are getting to our end.
She is constantly moving -- climbing, stripping, experimenting, exploring, manipulating. Today she got a time out at dinner which meant she was put into the hallway (entirely baby-proofed) for a minute. In that hot minute, she stripped her diaper, ran into their bedroom, climbed the TV armoire, and took a mid-air pee as she was hanging there. Mark caught her in the act and was as much amused as annoyed. What was she trying to prove with her mountain-climbing wee?
We won't go into the earlier diaper-stripping/poo incident. (We are getting two potties on Friday.)
She is a curious one and a stubborn one and as much as we try to give equal attention, we feel that we are coming up short with her. We don't want to be crushing her spirit or constantly reprimanding, but she is willful and determined. (And brilliant in some utterly Superhero/villain [hard to tell sometimes] ways.)
We are simply trying to keep her alive, which seems to be more challenging than it should be.
And I recognize the fire, the spark of brilliance in her, and want to nurture it.
So, I open this up to my readers -- what approach have you taken with a super-active precocious toddler? Have you enrolled them in classes? If you have, what kind? What approach have you taken? What do you recommend?
Mark and I are open and listening...
