Lockdown Antics By Toddlers Are Driving Moms Insane



Moms all over are sharing their photos of their young children wreaking chaos and havoc around the home during the lockdown.

You can’t leave children alone for long at any time, but with parents trying to juggle working from home as well as childcare they are finding the moments of silence a foreboding warning that they are up to no good.

From drawing with felt-tip pens on the carpet, smearing nappy cream over faces and furniture, to tipping flour over the floor, toddlers are making sure their parents are kept busy.

The chaos and disasters include ruined sofas, permanent marker on windows, and makeup mess – all captured on camera by their Moms.



The company ScS a sofa and carpet specialist asked parents to submit photographic evidence as part of a nationwide competition.

Emilia Herbert, from West Sussex, was crowned the winner and the queen of the mess, after ruining her Moms sofa with an artistic display of nappy cream – with a devilish stare.

Her Mom Lois said: “We can laugh about the incident now but at the time I wasn’t too pleased. I was upstairs bathing her baby sister at the time.”

In second place was an unnamed little boy whose Mom went to investigate after realizing he was being quiet – only to find a tub of nappy cream was already covering the room.

Others include the parent of two-year-old Raymond who took a quick trip to the toilet, only to come back and discover their carpet was no more.

As well as creating a mess with creams and paints, small hands can easily find their way into the food cupboards like four-year-old Blaine, and two-year-old Millie, who managed to create a floor of flour.
