Terrible 1's

I have heard of, and bared witness to the terrible 2’s. I have heard the shrill tantrums of the terrible 3’s. I have answered the non stop questions from the terrible 4’s, 5’s, and now 6’s (seriously, how long does the question stage last?). What I am new to is the terrible 1’s. My one year old, who just completed his first week as a walker has entered into a realm of non-stop activity. He moves about the house plotting his next attack. No one is safe, not his brothers, me, dad, couch, toys or even the neatly folded clothes waiting to be put away.

In a span of about 15 minutes, I found my son scaling the back of the couch (how else would he get to the blinds behind it?), biting his brother (ouch!), and throwing neatly folded shirt, after neatly folded shirt on the ground. I tried distracting him with toys and handed him a toy truck. His throwing the truck indicated that he may not be interested, so I did what any mother would do….. I gave him to his dad.

hahahaha... I had the same question... but I decided to ACCEPT that every age is a different stage and period.. don't question it again. If I do, I might get crazy. Robert is 5 and OMG he still ask so many questions and all the time is calling me! annoying! but I must enjoy this stage before he don't want to be cuddled anymore! :)
When a new stage comes I repeat... "this too shall pass" lol
