Definitely! But hopefully it will fade into a treasured family memory over time as it sounds like it cvould have been a v funny sight!

My dd does this. "Build me a tower mummy!" i do and then she keeps knocking my masterpiece down before I have completely finished... Bizarrely frustrating isn't it?

Just as unreasonable as me when my 4 year old won't play a two player playstation game 'properly'

Are they your megablocks?!

I feel like a sandpit slave atm - 'Dig, Mummy, dig!' And when I follow her orders she just kicks it all down, capriciously, like some kind of malevolent sprite.
Two year olds, eh?

my dh gets frustrated like this....he starts trying to convince dd (2.9) that she has those bricks and he has these ones so he can finish his tower. i sit and laugh!

I found myself saying No to DD when she wanted to help me colour in a picture...

I was soo proud of my colouring, didn't want her to ruin it..

I realised what I had done, looked at DH, laughed and said of course you can, and she scribbled all over my lovely work of art.....

I've just been out and bought extra thomas bits for my train track!

DS and I fight about where to put the bridges - he then just stamps on it to stop me building!

I'm with heifer. DD2 coloured in all the white spots on a perfect red toadstool. In my deepest heart of hearts I'll never truly forgive her.

Happytrack, Lego, PlayMobil, PS2, Mancala and Blokus.

All far too good for children, and only come out under cover of darkness in our house.

superglue may be the answer

Who honestly lets them at the Hama beads without 'guiding' their design process?

<<hurriedly puts sticklebricks into the cupboard that contains "things that are far too dangerous for you children, so go and play outside in the sunshine/rain/snow (delete as applicable) my darlings'.>>

thank you!

I have to say I laughed at my DH when he did the 'these are mine and those are yours' talk too but when it is your tower, it is a different matter!

I think that blocks should be given as therapy as I find it very relaxing and often think when I am playing that I should do it when my ds is asleep and cannot ruin my masterpieces!

LowFatPumpkinJuice Fri 10-Aug-07 19:54:53

Ooooh this is like me when DD asks me to draw a picture for her then scribbles all over it laughing - and I have to be the adult

I get cross when they ask me to draw something on the megasketcher, then erase it just as I'm nearly done. I hate them knocking down my towers too.

RedFraggle Sat 11-Aug-07 14:15:05

Ah sockmonkey - the megasketcher wiping does really annoy me too! I draw a "fantastic" lion and am just finishing off and wipe all gone. Then I get told to draw a giraffe but I get the neck done and it gets wiped off too. DD then gets on a roll and pulls the wiper everytime I touch the pen to the board! Very annoying when I am on a creative roll...

oh I let them do what ever they like with the Hama beads BUT why cant my DC let me build a nice sandcastle, with moat, flags etc without thinking I'm building it for them to jump on !
