I’m sure my child’s secretly an animal..

More and more, I feel like Oliver has developed animal like traits.  He does things that remind me so much of certain animals!  I thought I would share with you the animals that Oliver resembles..

An Octopus

I’m sure you’ve all had it, you try and strap your child into their car seat or buggy and all those limbs start flailing.  I have it pretty much every time, but I’m sure that Oliver suddenly develops an extra few arms, I manage to hook one arm in and go to strap the other one in, but oh wait…he’s no wiggled out of the other side..I give up!

A Goat

I’m sure there must be some goat in him somewhere.  He climbs EVERYTHING, nothing is safe anymore.  Even the most precarious places, he will try to climb.  I tell him off, take him down from whatever ridiculous place he has climbed.  Yet five minutes later, I walk in to find him yet again standing on the dining table.  I GIVE UP!

Another goat trait he has is head butting or head ramming.  My little boy has permanently got a bruise on his forehead from where he insists on running up to things and banging his head into them.  The worst part about this is he likes to do it to his parents heads too, so we all end up with a sore head!

A Monkey

Well this one is probably the same with most toddlers!  The cheekiness is unreal, if I say no, I’m pretty sure that within 30 seconds he will be trying to do it again!!  He has this little cheeky grin on his face when he does something he knows he isn’t allowed to do.  He’s just such a little monkey!

A Sniffer Dog

Oliver can find food ANYWHERE!  I will have a cereal bar tucked into the depths of my work handbag, and Oliver disappears of and comes back with it in his hand!  He loves his food, and if I’ve snuck off to sneakily munch something ‘nice’ (i.e. chocolate) he will appear at the oppurtune moment meaning I have to share my goodies!

Does your child remind you of an animal? Let me know in the comments

    Ha ha such a funny post and I like this idea. I think that many toddlers could fit into one of these categories, although I wish that our daughter was more like a sniffer dog, she’s currently more like a squirrel and grazing on snacks. Thanks for linking up at #fortheloveofBLOG. Claire x

    Mine definitely has more than a streak of monkey in him – the cheekiness is off the scale lately! He also has the ability to make himself all floppy like a snake which makes it so hard to pick him up and move him anywhere, even more than him going all rigid! He knows what he’s doing!

    Ha ha! My youngest definitely has some goat and monkey in her. My eldest wasn’t a climber so it came as a shock when my youngest was. Nothing is safe! Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

    This rings so true! Mine is a goat, monkey and octopus all rolled into one. Just wish I had eight arms as well….! #SharingTheBlogLove
