Never Leave them Alone With It.

So most of you that read my blog are parents and some of you that read it are not. For those of you that are parents, you know all to well the list of items that you don't want your young child or toddler to be alone with. For those of you without kids, you probably have friends that have kids and you get to hear all the stories all the time.

As parents we go day to day and pick up shit off the floor and hide it and take it from our kids. Whether it be from making a trade or to tricking your kid or just being that helicopter parent that follows the kid until he or she is safe. I know everyone may have different lists, and some of the items may be the same but isn't it always so much fun to talk about it?

So I read this post from Mom Finds on yahoo and it talked about the 10 Things You Shouldn't Leave Your Toddler Alone With.  Well, some of mine are the same and some may not be. Here is my list of ten, in no certain order.

1.Toilet Paper.  This stuff is always all over the place. Young kids love to unroll it, take it all around the house, it rips so easy. Our kids bathroom looks like the War against TP just took place.

2.Hard Balls.  Nothing better than chillin' out on the couch, that is until you close your eyes to doze off and all of a sudden a hard bouncy balls come flying and smacks you in the face.

3.Stickers.  Why decorate your home when you can just leave your kid alone with a sticker book or a pack of stickers and then come back to find out you house has been remodeled and looks like a glitter sticker gingerbread house.

4.Pens, Markers, Crayons etc.  Really? I have to go into this one? Haven't we all had the chance to walk into a room and see the wonderful display of art that has been put on a wall or furniture.

5.Keys.  Have somewhere to be in a hurry? Leave your keys lying around? No worries, just ask the one person in your house that cant say a flippin' word except Ninny, Mama, Daddy. Im sure that child knows exactly where your keys are.

6.Laptop. Now we have never had the kid that slams it or drops it to the floor or even spill drinks on it. We just have the child that loves to pull of letters and then you have to hunt for the letter, the little holder, and then fit it back onto the keyboard.

7.Phone.  Any phone.  Phones are fun.  But when you have a daughter that call 911 and then the local police show up knocking on the door of your dark house, yeah that's when the fun ends.

8.Legos.  I love legos. I love that my kids use imagination to create a whole new world. I even love walking around the house with no socks on and then..OUCH..Mutha.*@%&#  stepping on the smallest lego. But that small lego can leave that awesome indention in your foot.

9.Cup of Milk.  Just when you thought it was all gone and you washed it and put it away, you clean out that one place and you find that cup of milk WITH milk still in it. Except its not milk, its a hard white substance that smells like a football players jock.

10.Dads.  Hey moms, just when you thought it was safe to leave your child alone with your husband aka The Dad (aka This Daddy) THINK AGAIN. Nothing good is coming out of this ladies. Us guys know how to make babies, we don't know how to take care of them. Come on, stay home...FOREVER!

So there is my list. Do you have a list. Give me yours, a few, the top one.

The remote. My kids should never be allowed to have possession of the remote. I've gone weeks searching for one before, only to find it...where did I find it? Hell, I don't know. But it was hidden well.

And did you know that you can "color" on the walls with solid deoderant? Uh huh. True story. At least it leaves the house smelling shower fresh.

LOL I disagree with #10. I've left Klaw with Chris for whole weekends and he's been fine.

I would add "cats." Don't leave toddlers alone with cats. or dogs. rabbits. birds. etc.

Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I try not to leave the little ones alone with my mom. It's not that majorly dangerous, it's that she doesn't pay attention. 15 seconds go by and the structure of the room has changed. She doesn't get it, but I do, and it's a constant argument.
