    Ha! I love it! Enjoy 2...some people call them the terrible 2s. Yes, they can be tough (my oldest son is 27 months) but it is the greatest age. He is now a real little boy and is my little shadow!

    I got one of those for my brother's kid before he was born even. He's 4 months old now and my folks just got him a kids tool set for Christmas (got to keep that saw running afterall, right?!) ==c

    It will pass in phases buddy...trust me. For 2 weeks my oldest was up at 4-4:30 AM for the DAY! And for the past 4 days he has woken up at 7AM. Fewf!

    The best is once they discover they can pull a chair around the entire house and climb on everything. He got away with that for 2 days until I had a "difficult" conversation with him and now he leaves the chairs alone ;)

    Oh we know.... That are doing the chair thing, and my son figured out how to open the outside door, even the lock. I had to add an extra deadbolt up high. They went through the 4am wake phase around 18 months but now they sleep till 7am.

    My son is just going through the temper tantrum stage I think. Luckily his sister is much more mellow. Somehow she even sleeps through it all!

    I love 'em at that age.......from the time they are around 2 til the time they hit around 8, I wish I could pause them in those years to make it last. I can't express how much I love my kids, then they hit 8 and 9, and start to get mouthy. We know where it goes from there!;lol

    Enjoy those young years, Jeremy......it goes by pretty fast.

    My youngest son (11) helped me cut down our Christmas tree this year with the Stihl 015........he was pumped! I helped him, of course, but needless to say he's already asking me when we are going to start cutting this winter........

    I may have created a monster!

    Nice, looks like you need to paint that saw red and white to go with his helmet :)

    I actually tried purchasing one of the toy Stihl saws, but I'd be able to buy a real one with the money they wanted!
