When you have a toddler...

Monday, February 2, 2015

When you have a toddler... you count every moment they are sleeping as sacred.

When you have a toddler... you anticipate spills so often that you keep a towel in the kitchen just for  sopping up the latest mess.

When you have a toddler...you become a human pacifier and punching bag.

When you have a toddler...your attire is accessorized with smears of boogers, pieces of food and possibly the residue of vomit.

When you have a toddler...you savor every sweet snuggle because it will only be about 10 seconds before they are up and running.

When you have a toddler...you find yourself swaying even when no one is attached to your hip.

When you have a toddler... peek a boo is the most entertaining game in the world.

When you have a toddler... you cherish every minute that you get to eat a meal in peace.

When you have a toddler... you don't even flinch when you hear something crashing in the other room.

When you have a toddler... you laugh when people say they don't know how you do it, because you don't either.

When you have a toddler...you learn how to make dinner with a little person wrapped around your legs.

When you have a toddler...you learn sign language, because that is the only way you can communicate with them.

When you have a toddler..mama is the sweetest word in the world; next to dada of course.

When you have a toddler... you develop lightning fast reflexes to minimize some of the falls of your fearless babe.

When you have a toddler...you sound like a record because you repeat every phrase of gibberish they speak.

When you have a toddler...you bring out every toy in the house to occupy them for a few minutes but they only want you.

When you have a toddler...you heave a sigh of relief when you open up their diaper and find it's not a poop.

When you have a toddler... you want to jump up and down for joy when they actually eat their food instead of flinging it.

When you have a toddler...one minute you are crying and the next you are laughing because even though they drive you crazy; their smile melts your heart.

When you have a toddler...you wish time would slow down because you love every minute with them.

  1. Oh My Oh My Oh My. I relate to this so so much. I often wonder if I'm actually going a little crazy because I love the mess out of Baby Boy, yet he drives me absolutely batty, all in the span of 1 minute. But, truky, I wouldn't give it over for anything in the world. I wouldn't change a thing, even my struggles for those first minths, even my doubt, and my lack of mom confidence, and learning as I go...lliterally. This is truly the best job I've ever had and I Honestly know there's nothing that compares!

    When you have a toddler, all the right and world in your world are the same, yet it's all yours and you know you only have it for a small time. :D
