I've come to realize the calm down phase should only be seen as sort of an intermission before his next ridiculous Act.
You would think by now, nothing would surprise me. I do, after all, have an evil genius for a toddler.
Clearly pondering "What's the worst that could happen if I pull the plug on this place."
This kid is crazy, and enjoys kicking things up an extra notch for extra fun....
Me: Oliver! Don't you dare throw that toy down the stairs!
Oliver: **Chucks toy down the stairs** **Laughs hysterically at me** ** Continues to laugh like a crazy person all the way to time out**
Me: Ollie! Get down from that fence!
Oliver: **Climbs to the top** **Laughs hysterically at me** ** Continues to laugh like a crazy person all the way to time out**
