To mums of toddlers –
You know what it is like to have a whirlwind spin through your home on a day to day basis.
When you have a toddler (or 2 ) you realise there is no such thing as quite time…
So here is 10 things I have learned from my toddler’s
❄ They like to toss toys everywhere just after you have finished the housework – ooh this one is great! I put the hoover away sit down with a coffee…then here a crash… Toy box empty all over ☺ oh the joys
❄ Going into a cupboard in the kitchen, and devouring dried pasta – gosh this one baffled me. I was sitting down feeding James. Ariana comes wandering in chewing on something… So I followed her and watched as she took dried spaghetti from the packet and munched on it!
❄ Tearing up an entire roll of toilet roll into shreds – so far all of my kids have done this. Apparently its like snow…doesn’t matter that it means breaking out thee hoover again grr!
❄ They will throw a tantrum over anything – literally anything! Ariana threw a tantrum because I told her to hold on while I dried my hands before I could get her juice…I mean yikes!
❄ talking, talking, talking – we all sit on hope for the day our babies start to communicate with us, and its such a special time. That is until the start repeating the same thing over and over and over…just enough so that your head explodes!
❄ they never sit still – you try and take a picture of their cute moments…then they leg it and all you have is a blur of a child…awesome!
❄ I can spin and not fall over – yea total lies as my eldest proved when she fell and cut her ear on the coffee table…yea try listening to mummy!
❄ they copy everything you say – you need to be careful what you say…I said crap once and Ariana repeated it for a week! Yikes 😮
❄ emptying bags is fun – especially when you have tampons in your handbag and they start pretending they are mice…I mean wow!
❄ nap time is playtime – you put them in bed, they are lying down eyes closed. I sit down to a piece of toast and hear what sounds like an elephant leaping about upstairs and lots of talking. Why do I bother lol!
