On... Off On... Off On...

Do your toddlers have obsessive tendencies that drive you CrAzY?! Owen and Eli are just barely tall enough to reach the light switches, and they are incapable of leaving them in the 'off' position. There are 13 light switches on the first floor, and they turn them all on at least 20 times a day, if not 20 times an hour. It's almost pointless to turn them off, because the second they see me turn them off, they race over to turn them back on again. I know that they are two and that they love the cause-and-effect nature of light switches... but their college choices are seriously going to be numbered if we have to spend so much more money on electric bills! : )

Do your kids do certain things that drive you crazy? What do you do about it? I know this is just a phase, but in the moment of turning the switch off for the 50th time today, that's hard to remember!

We have the same thing in our house! Cole loves the light switches.... He also loves to turn our master bathroom bathtub faucets on and off. And stand up on the sofa! Ahhhh the joys...
