My son has these colored wiffle balls that he loves to play with. You know the ones… the balls with all the holes? (No they aren’t pink, that is just the only pic I could find.) Anyshizzle… he puts them up on the end table next to my chair and grunts at me. He wants me to spin them like a top. He wants them spun ALL the time. And if you don’t spin the green one, the red one, the white one, the purple one AND the blue one, then he will scream and proceed to throw the balls at your head. You MUST spin the balls. *eyeroll*
Any toy that makes noise will be among the top five favorite toys in your toddler’s life. The toy with the most annoying noise will be #1. Especially if it is a loud annoying lawn mower toy that your son feels he must RUN through the house pushing. The loud thumping and music and annoyance of it all can be easily drowned out with wine. (Although if pregnant, like myself, and not allowed to drink such sanity inducers, then just close your eyes and pretend you have the whole wine bottle in your hand. It helps. Seriously.) *grin*
Nightmares can rouse a Mommy from a “dead to the world” sleep and can only be cured with cuddles. Mommy will try not to cry along with you, I know you hate that. Ok well I will try not to cry.
Timeout is sort of a joke. I have been watching that Super Nanny. I need that chick to come to my house and show me a thing or two. I am sick of being laughed at.
When your toddler is sitting on your lap and sneezes, and a foreign substance comes FLYING out his nose right into your face, try desperately not to heave him across the room as you make a mad dash for the toilet. If you have annoying nausea hormones that make you want to vomit at the mere sight of snot, then I suggest wearing a hazmat suit. Mine is on backorder. 🙂
Climbing is not an art. Bruises, cuts, scraps and bumps are normal. On toddler and on Mommy. Get used to it.
No matter how bad the mood or how upset you may be, one giggle from that little perfect person can make your world a better place. Instantly.
I am thinking of making this a weekly thing. You know with class participation and everything. What do you think? Would anyone want to participate? Let me know either way what your thoughts are.
