"Mischief, thou art afoot"......William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar

My little boy is a mischief maker. He's only 2 so i accept that, sometimes he does naughtly things on purpose sometimes not. Being 2 i am also trying to get him to 'go' on the potty. I'm not really pushing it but most days i give him some nappy free time after his bath. He thinks it's hilarious that he gets to run around naked and then run away from me when i try and dress him. Usually it requires Daddy's help too to get him dressed. Basically Daddy holds him so i can dress him, otherwise he'd be naked forever.
Yesterday we were playing in the backyard....well he was playing i was sitting down watching, and he decided to take his nappy off. Which i was fine with considering we were in the backyard and any accidents wouldn't need to be cleaned up. So after it got dark we came inside and i made dinner and we settled down for the night. Ethan is still half naked and i didn't really have a desire to chase after him to get that nappy on. I'm still feeling like crap, now with a cold and morning sickness. He peed 3 times - not in the potty. I seriously don't think he even knows what its for even though i thought he understood. So i cleaned everything up, thinking that ok, how much can his bladder hold?? I thought he was done for the moment. Boy was i wrong.

I wanted to watch the Commonwealth Games and Ethan wanted to watch Thomas so i put Thomas on dhs laptop, on the living room floor. And guess what he did then? Yep, he peed all over the laptop! dh was livid. So now the mouse pad doesn't work and some of the buttons don't work either.
It's a rental and was due for an upgrade. Now it's way overdue for an upgrade. Oh boy.

So my lesson learned this week - always keep little boys 'equipment' away from laptops.
