This weekend I was thrown back into life with a Toddler. Hard. My SassyNephew came to stay with me for four days, and do you want to know what I learned? It may have been about eight years since I’ve had a Toddler in my life, but some things never change.
*Cheerio’s still rule.
*Coffee is required for survival.
*Max and Ruby still have no parents.
*You can never go wrong with a walk around the block.
*5:30am is freakin early. The only time it’s cool to get up this early is if you are catching a flight to somewhere fabulous.
*I’d love to kiss the Mama who invented the “sou sou”. Soothers are clearly one of the worlds best inventions and therefore must have been invented by a woman.
*A Toddler can destroy your house faster than a pack of teenagers looking for food.
*Toddler “speak” is the cutest thing ever.
*Poopy Toddler blow0outs are not cute. Still love me some Pampers.
*I am powerless against a Toddler begging to be picked up.
*Sleepy Toddler Snuggles are kind of addictive.
The toddler years are fleeting. They whiz by in a blink of an eye and it is sometimes hard to appreciate and to know that this time of baby chasing, poop cleaning and excess coffee drinking will be some of the biggest giggle inducing and memory making years of your life. Counting my blessings that my SassyNephew gave me a look back on those years, and then went home to his Mama…..so I could get some sleep!
Hoping you all had beautiful weekend. If you need me, I will be sleeping!
