Because They Are Toddlers

You’ll make the food they ask for, and watch them take one bite and sign, “all done”.

Because they are toddlers.

You will get them dressed, hair brushed, snack + drink ready, for them to run upstairs in protest of getting in the car.

Because they are toddlers.

You will be subjected to public tantrums and obvious shaming from other “non-parents” for their behavior.

Because they are toddlers.


They. Are. Toddlers.

I need to remind myself of this every day. Every single day brings struggles. Toddlers are extremely frustrating, loud, loving, cuddly little things. Most of them are bipolar, at least mine is most days. They’re picky eaters, or they just don’t eat in general. They love the stroller one day, hate the stroller the next day. Nothing is ever the same, and everything changes day-to-day. You never know what kind of day you’re going to have, especially if they wake up on the wrong side of the crib.

And why?

Because they are toddlers, and that’s what these little crazy people do 😉
