Have you ever spent a few hours looking after little mischief makers? They are so adorable when they’re asleep, yet when they’re awake, life can get a little crazy. Leave them alone for a few minutes and you welcome total chaos into your home, or try to get them to sit for a nice shot with Santa and what results is something completely unexpected!

Let’s check out what life with these little mischief makers is like for this lot of unsuspecting camera enthusiasts then, shall we?

Watching too much Wizard of Oz perhaps? Granted it’s not a house but with the added weight of the toddler on top, it’s probably heavy enough for this age group.

Check out the expression on this little guys face – clearly he’s not having fun with the rest of the neighborhood kids.

How’s this for toddler destruction? If you look very closely you’ll actually see four darlings here. What a remarkable effort to be able to hide amongst the mess.

Speaking of destruction, a future demolition expert perhaps?

And then there’s demolition girls’ style. They look like they are having so much fun, it would be so hard to tell them off!

And now, for the winners of brotherly bonding mischief style: these two future home decorators. Notice their precision, though? The toy in the foreground doesn’t seem to have a drop of paint on it and it looks like the vacuum has been spared as well. Pity about the TV! No Bob the Builder for these two anytime soon.

Here’s a brother and sister combination if ever we saw one. Mind you, this actually looks sort of fun! I wonder if the boy in the background is trying to post something into that DVD player now all the cushion filling has been extracted?

Here’s a brother who would very much like to extract his sister from the family on her birthday. Not a lot of sibling love coming from him it seems.

Now this is a man who is showing love – and an incredible amount of patience.

Here’s one where the little mischief maker has decided to wash himself. What a Pity about the additional cleanup!

The following consists of a couple of cute tots who thought toilets were just another body of water to climb into…

However, I’m not sure if this one was voluntary though.

This one clearly wasn’t on Dads part. His exhaustion has made him the perfect target for a living canvas.

This little darling obviously liked the living canvas idea, but he may have the concept wrong.

It seems he knows the toilet is for flushing, but perhaps isn’t exactly sure that there’s a limit to what should go down there.

Luckily this one hasn’t grasped the fact that the lid should be open before the paper goes in. Plus, there is that caught-in-the act look about this little mischief maker.

And this one.

This one too.

Yep, that expression is there, but it’s a bit harder to recognise upside down!

This happy chappy on the other hand looks quite proud of his accomplishment. No guilt here.

Plenty here. Poor baby girl.

With a look of pure horror, this screams out for a funny caption.

Screaming out is probably what the child on the bottom would like to do, yet her older sister’s hand won’t allow it. Ah, sibling love.
