Will your dc have tales of naughty behaviour when they are older?

Just reading another thread where a poster was able to sneak halfway down the stairs and watch TV secretly.

I remember being able to open the airing cupboard doors and being able to listen to the TV in the living room.

I don't think my dc will have tales where they sneaked around. I tend to keep a closer on them than my parents who were just happy if they couldn't hear us.

Will your dc have tales of naughtiness?

(I don't mean teenagers obv!)

DS does the stairs thing. Some nights we leave a treat on a plate for him.

I think most children will have their own memories.

He would but he wont remember I dont think as hes 3.

If does remember then the time he lifted a woman's skirt to see what 'bits' she had as he wasn't sure will be there.

Robbing a plastic eye patch and telescope from a magazine in Co-op and been caught be the security guard will be there.

I know they will have their own memories but there is something special about those sneaky memories where you felt you were outwitting your parents.

They still bring a smile to your face many years later.

I have memories of playing on the road at the end of the garden on roller skates without any supervision - Something my dc would never be allowed to do.

One time we were playing there we decided to climb over the wall and down the embankment to the road below. We then ran along the roads and back up to the house. I remember feeling very naughty doing that and my parents never knew! My dc (10, 6, 1) are rarely out of my sight, so have had little opportunity for any adventurous naughty activities really. sad

Oh I hope so! At the moment I can't imagine DS (22mo) being out if my sight. I've got such good memories of sneaking around, making dens, finding secret paths etc. The area where my parents live is a bit of a rabbit warren, I really loved it. smile
I hope so much that I won't be neurotic about DS playing outside with his friends.

'Fraid so. My daughter will remember forging notes to her teachers; my son will remember getting dressed in his uniform then sneaking back into the house and hiding upstairs when I came home unexpectedly one day. Climbing in and out of the bathroom window and jumping a gap of a metre to the garage roof, then having to lie there for hours because I was in the garden and would have seen him climb down.

I can remember sunbathing with a friend on MOD land which made the helicopters come buzzing round. But if you ignore them they go away.

Far too many naughty things to mention. Kids have to be naughty, imo. You wouldn't want them to obey you all the time, would you?

I always said I wouldn't like horribly always obedient children. I am now paying for my comment!

SPsCliffingAllOverMN Sun 26-May-13 08:53:49

I have so many of my own and some my mum doesn't know about. She would beat me even at my age now if she knew. I was clever and didn't get caught grin

Watching CBBC on iPlayer on her iPod until the wee small hours!

She is sooooooo much easier to get up in the morning once we found out and knocked that on the head.

I loved adult conversations. I would sit at the top of the stairs and hear all the family secrets. Not fully understood at the time but they intrigued me so much that I would go away and write stories.

I am a writer now so I can think of those times as inspiration. Whispers, intrigue and that peculiarly adult world that used to make me curious and excited.

We used to have midnight walks aged 9 to 7. Fantastic fun. V quiet suburb and we just hid if we saw an adult.

SPsCliffingAllOverMN Sun 26-May-13 11:13:44

Pink I used to sit on the stairs listing to 'the adults'. The nest were when my dad went out and she would invite friends round for a gossip! Then once I heard a door open I would run in to my room.

I caught my DS out when he was a little (and gullible!) boy.

I was telling him all about my naughty brother and how he would do anything to avoid washing.

"Did he try the water trick?" asked DS, interested.

"I don't think I know that one." I said, also interested wink

"Oh, it's easy!" assured my grubby and very innocent DS. "You run the water into the sink, wait for a few minutes, then pull the plug out. Then your mummy thinks you've had a wash when you haven't!"

How very enlightening grin
