1.    
Toddlers are one huge mess making manufacturing facility. They can stand nonetheless in an empty white room and nonetheless work out make a HUGE FREAKING MESS! I typically suppose my Toddler has a magnet for crap embedded in his physique, so the minute he walks
by means of a room all types of crap comes flying out from each nook, and lands at his ft.  Even although I watch
it occur, I can’t wrap my head round the truth that one thing so small can
fully wreck every little thing in 3.2 seconds! 

2.     Toddlers suppose every little thing is superior… for 5 seconds. The consideration span of a
toddler has to rival that of a blowfly. Every single new factor my toddler comes throughout is dangerous ass.  He HAS to have it. Then 5 seconds later,
he’s on to the subsequent superior factor.

3.    
Feeding a toddler is like feeding a monkey. A choosy, drunken monkey. Between
the flailing arms, the poor spoon/fork utilization, the meals launching and the
occasional chew that truly makes it into their mouth… yeah it is monkey enterprise. Frustrating persistence testing monkey enterprise.

4.    
Toddlers have NO use for clothes. – My child thinks
sneakers, pants and socks are the dumbest rattling innovations. He
has no use for them. My toddler would like to
dwell as a free ballin’ nudist, and that’s all there may be to it.

5.    
Toddlers Have NO Shame. They will cease in the midst of a big
crowd to focus on crapping their pants. They will fart within the arms of President. (I wager a minimum of one has performed it
earlier than… this 12 months.) They will scream bloody she-is-kidnapping-me homicide the
minute you choose them as much as go away the park, and greatest needs to those who suppose
errands might be run in a well timed clam orderly trend. They haven’t any disgrace, and are completely satisfied to show it. 

6.

toddler will destroy it. DESTROY. IT. Again with the magnet principle. Toddlers have a homing beacon that seeks out costly issues, hazard and hassle.  

7.

The minute they be taught one thing, that new operate stays on! Walking, working, dancing, speaking, repeating
dangerous phrases… they be taught it, and Man, it is
SO ON!

8.    
Toddlers like every little thing on repeat. I’ve learn, and re-read, the identical ebook for days in row.  I’ve watched the
identical Mickey Mouse Clubhouse exhibits so many instances I do know the
phrases. Why, sure, I’ve tried different
books and exhibits. He doesn’t need these, he needs his Trucks and Diggers ebook
learn entrance to again, then again to entrance…  OVER AND OVER AND OVER. Don’t even
get me began on the books with buttons, however just one button will do OVER AND
OVER AND OVER. I’ve additionally stood by whereas my toddler has gone up and down the
slide 4 hundred thousand instances. Repeat I inform you. Repeat.

9.

going to do it. Toddlers invented the idea: It’s far simpler to ask forgiveness, than permission.

10. 
Toddlers guarantee that there’s by no means a uninteresting Day. EVER!  For instance:  Yesterday morning we would have liked a couple of issues from
the grocery. So I made my iced espresso,
received Ollie and I dressed, and left for the shop. Once on the retailer, (sneakers already off in fact) the second I
unbuckled him from his automobile seat he lunged into the entrance seat, knocking my iced
espresso into my drivers seat, (MY seat!) then he sat in it to drive
the automobile. (Yes. Yes, I did need to shed a tear.) With no towels available, I used a diaper to sop up the espresso. Then, I flip my sights to him. Of course, whereas I used to be centered on cleansing up the espresso, he was climbing round
the automobile turning on each button and emptying out my bag. When I lastly caught him, I by some means missed him
crapping his pants between leaving the home and that second. Did I cry? No. Did I lose my mood? No. This is simply one other day within the
lifetime of a dad or mum of a toddler.   

Call me certifiable, however I would not commerce it for something.  It’s the teenage years I’m afraid of…
