Cabinets and Tupperware!

How many times a day can I clean up Tupperware in 1 day? Well the answer is yet to be determined....we are up to at least 10!! This is what my kitchen looks like at least 10 times a day.

Kinson loves the idea of pulling ALL of the Tupperware out of the drawer and then getting in the drawer himself. The idea that it might be fun to put all of the tupperware back IN the drawer has never crossed his mind.

This is his other favorite thing to do....

This is in the cabinet in my vanity in our bathroom. Notice that the cabinet is empty...he did that months ago. Now he likes to just get in there and sit in the mornings while we are getting dressed.

Thanks to all you mommas who responded to my discipline dilema. Lots of you ladies like wooden spoons! I did buy some the other day at Target but Bear has only used them to bang and make loud noises on the counter...that has scared him for the time being!! I got lots of good suggestions and realized that whatever route we choose we just need to be consistent.

Calling all moms...I need help!!

Kinson is going to be the death of me! I know that he is all boy and into everything but there has to be a point where it is not funny or cute anymore...just plain BAD!!! He has started to throw temper tantrums EVERYWHERE! He screams to get out of his high chair, you get him out he screams to get back in...yesterday he pulled it over on top of him and gave him a HUGE bruise on his head. He throws himself out of buggies at stores, screams when getting in the carseat, when we change him, bathe him, etc. I have heard that many people spank and I just don't understand that because either he laughs at us or it just makes the situation worse. So we have tried timeouts because they use the "Sad spot" at school, but how the heck do you get a 17 month old to sit still/down? He just either throws himself out screaming or gets up and runs off!

I know this is just a "stage" but I hate to think that we can't go anywhere these last few months before the new baby gets here because he will act so out of control. I also am thankful that this is starting before Cohen arrives so I know it is not because of her (but I guess it could still get worse when she gets here)! But I guess my question is what has worked for yall in the discipline department? You can email me if you dont want to leave a comment:

Sorry for the lack of pictures you have read, i don't really have a free hand to take pics!!
