Anyone with a toddler knows there are insane highs & lows along with daily battles & bouts of laughter. Here are my current #toddlerproblems
Losing my child. IN OUR HOUSE. Lex loves a good hiding spot. Which I learned the hard way…. I walked away for .5 seconds and suddenly we were playing hide n go seek without my knowledge. After screaming lex’s name around 1,000 times I finally heard the tell-tale snicker letting me know she was alright. Turns out she was behind a curtain. The neighbors probably officially think I’m a lunatic.
Elephant memory. I sang “bringing home a baby bumblebee” exactly ONCE to her. And now it’s the most requested song at bath time, car time, play time, and meal time.
The discovery of you-tube. One day I thought it would be super fun to watch “educational” videos on you-tube… You know- things like peacocks flying (or jumping with style), the kitty half time show from the puppy bowl, and this frozen video. We’ll ladies and gentleman lex is a you-tube MONSTER every time I even glance in my computer’s general direction she’s begging to see “how do we make”, and “kitties!”.
Lock-ness swim monster. Lex was always the star of her swim class. Homegirl LOVED the water, her teachers, and smiles and giggles we’re aplenty. All that changed a frightful day a few months ago. She wails, screams, and legit looks terrified every time you even mention her going to see her teacher (who for the record is the sweetest most patient person EVER)… The only way to calm her down? singing baby bumblebee.
Speckled past. This sweet faced babe stole something from our favorite toy store. It was a small koala figurine- and something she didn’t even want… But somehow I found it nestled in her pocket (I don’t think she knows she even HAS pockets). she’s such a criminal.
Thankfully we haven’t hit tantrum town yet… It has to be on the horizon. I’m definitely not looking forward to head pounding, feet stomping and shrill crying over the most mundane things… Especially in public places. For now we’ll stick to stealing, singing, and hiding.
