You Know You Live with a Toddler When... Part 4

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

... you're sitting on the couch, minding your own business, drinking some coffee... and your toddler walks by and drops off his sippy cup right into your coffee mug. Good thing I was almost done!



... your sunglasses are no longer safe, your (decaf) coffee is no longer safe, and your chips are no longer safe.


... you distinctly remember leaving your package on the counter and not in the sink.


... you forget to re-lock your cabinet locks after getting a pot or pan out and then when you go to re-lock the cabinet, you can't find the lock, you search for it, and find it... on your toddler's toy race track.


... you clean under the couch one day and find... 4 cars, the wheels to a Lego plane, a cannon ball, a shoot-able Lego cannon ball, a fire man, a bowl, and 2 goldfish crackers... and are actually surprised you didn't find more.


... the littlest person in your house takes up the most space in your bed.


... you find half of a page of a book laying around by itself.


... you find about 2382682 Cheerios, 4 goldfish crackers, and a rock hard piece of waffle in your car.



... you get a text from your husband with (the below) pictures and a message that says "What's wrong with this picture? Besides that Mason escaped his room when he should be napping, came downstairs on his own, and ripped the iPad down while it was charging. So I gathered him up, changed his diaper, laid him back down, and BOOM. Shushy (what we call time to take a nap/time for bed)"... all while your husband was outside for 5 minutes doing something on his car and your toddler was supposed to be napping (but apparently knows how to open his door AND the baby gate that is supposed to keep him in his room AND come all the way downstairs)



Regardless of the madness that goes on daily... I couldn't love him more! And can't believe that he probably can't be considered a toddler anymore in a few short days. 

Do I really have to refer to him as a preschooler?!? That sounds so old!
(I'm still in denial)

  1. Haha! I'm so glad noah hasn't figured out the gates! And I'm in denial too! Do we have to stop calling them toddlers at 3? What's the cut off??

  5. Hahahaha! Yes, to all of it. Especially being surprised that you don't find more under furniture, all the while being totally blown away by how much food has accumulated in the back seat of the car. HA!
    Marcus has now figured out he can lock the bathroom doors... So that makes for some interesting times around here.

  9. Haha- these are awesome! Mason seems like such a funny kid :) I hear you on the cheerios and goldfish everywhere. I'll often find them inside a bowl or teapot Reese was playing with in her play kitchen.

  13. Hahaha this is great. When my (17 years younger) brother was younger, we would find hundreds of treasures under the couch and always a toy car or two in my purse. Such great times.

  15. Baha ha! Oh goodness this was such a fun post to read. A few weeks back I found some cheerios in my car then I got grossed out thinking about how long it has been since my kids ate cheerios in the car. Oh the adventures of parenthood.

  17. We have those magnetic locks on our cabinets and if I'm not careful Wyatt unlocks them when I have the cabinet open. He can then open it whenever he pleases...or at least until I catch him. And Wyatt has just started being able to reach on top of the cabinets...nothing is safe. :)

  18. lol these are my faves =) I just did the moving furniture cleaning the other day (the day we did the fort) and I always find misc bits under there. Several tea spoons. Way too much dog hair. etcetc. We can't move the big entertainment center with the tv, so God only knows what is under there. I'm pretty sure parts of her burger and fries thing her aunty gave her that I can only find the pickles of.

  19. Yes! Yes! Yes!
    Our poor couches ... they are home to some pretty nasty stuff sometimes. Like the broken and squished Skittle.
