Spawn of the Devil or Angel of Destruction?

Josiah turned 3 last week. While he is cute and adorable, inquisitive and intelligent, we seem to be experiencing a greater volume than normal of broken electronic major appliances in our home, lately. It seems in the last couple of months he has broken our TV (poured water over it to 'wash' it), our computer (kicked it over in a fit a rage, hasn't worked since), lost an IPOD (last seen in his pudgy little hands), broke the IPOD port on our CD player, and has been implicated in the malfunction of several cell phones. We went to look at computers yesterday, and will budget for a replacement TV next month. Has he been sent to us as a plot by Satan to break all our stuff? Well even if that turns out to be the case, he's still a lot of fun to have around. His vocabulary increases every day, he's spoiled rotten, and still insists on sleeping in bed with us or one of his siblings. Potty training is optional, right? He's still in the throes of a Batman fetish, and insists on being Batman for Halloween. Later today we head to a local pumpkin patch so he can pick out some pumpkins. Despite how expensive having him around is turning out to be- we couldn't be more thrilled. Thankfully, he hasn't broken anything today.... wait... what was that crash???

3 years ago already??? Where does the time go? And where is that multimedia production product that was being produced at his birth? Thanks for the sacred privilege of being the midwife to welcome that little gift from GOD (not satan, LOL)into your world.

Our 3yo has masses of ex-electronics to play with, most of which are things you named! They love to play with the stuff, but it always ends up broken! And ours is a late potty-trainer too. :)

Multimedia production still in the works. Thanks for serving us so well- I'm grateful to have had you as my midwife.
