7 Signs You’re the Mom of a Toddler
Friday, March 8th, 2013
Being the mom of toddlers is no joke. It will test your patience, while simultaneously filling your heart with pride, joy and a love you couldn’t possibly have imagined.
I am a mom of three, two of which are twins in the thick of the toddler years. I don’t recall it being so hard the first time around through the 2’s and 3’s; perhaps there is truth to that “mommy-brain” theory.
Once you enter the toddler years, you start to realize a few resounding truths, some of which I’ve compiled here – the 7 Signs You’re the Mom of a Toddler (or, in my case, two toddlers)…
Side note: I will take survival donations of chocolate and wine… please and thank you.
You have the tiny remnants of goldfish crackers permanently embedded in your carpet … or the bottom of your handbag.
The Doc McStuffins’ “Time for a Checkup” song is on your home hit list instead of top 40.
You find yourself saying, “Do you want to go pee, pee?” or “Please, let’s go sit on the potty” or “Don’t pooh-pooh on Minnie – she wouldn’t like that, pooh-pooh in the potty”, all the while wondering why you didn’t just give into the pull-ups because cleaning pooh out of panties sucks. Potty training in general = no fun.
You have discovered the many uses of baby wipes outside of the obvious – like wiping your car console clean of drippy coffee stains.
