This momma has been busy venturing into the land of WordPress and YouTube, yaaay. I’m excited to bring you more tips for keeping your family, household and self, healthy, happy and SANE! using two very cool platforms.As part of my intro to YouTube and video editing I decided on something light and fun to produce. Something to give you a little glimpse of the shenanigans in our toddler fueled household. Naturally my first video had to feature the star of our home. Stay tuned for future video’s with useful tips on health, wellness and of course more mommy musings.At 20 months old our munchkin is at the pre potty training stage (eeek, not looking forward to that), pre Picaso-esque coloring (watch out walls, so I’ve been told) stage and pre formal words stage (learning two languages). Since his first steps to full fledged running (ALL THE TIME) our little guy has taught me a few things or two about motherhood and a toddler.Here are a few things our toddler has taught me about motherhood.
- You will never go to the bathroom alone again, EVER!!! (infant crawling stage eases you into this new reality)
- You will never shower in peace again (another point momma’s get used to)
- You may want to begin boiling cinnamon sticks to give your home a fresh aroma (watch the video below to find out why). Or invest in lots and lots of baking soda.
- It’s always about them and their fun. Rules can be set but according to the “Toddler handbook” Rules are meant to be broken.
The list goes on and on but I just wanted to give you a glimpse of what your toddler will teach you about motherhood.
Honorable mentions that were not shared but completely worthy.
- Momma’s, you will clap for everything. Clap, clap, clap…your toddler closed a door. Clap, clap, clap….your toddler smiled at you. Clap, clap, clap…the wind blew. Clap, clap, clap…a car passed by. Clap, clap, clap…you sneezed. Clap, clap, clap…just because. Tip: Just keep on clapping
- Toddler’s are bed hogs. Recently ‘Bug’ was sick and wanted to be with momma. A little quite time turned into an all nighter resulting in me sleeping on the edge as his little body sprawled across our bed.
- Toddler’s love repetition so don’t be alarmed when you’re asked to read the same 3-4 books every night before bed. Some of our books are duck taped together because he reads them all the time. This is a good thing that he loves to read but seriously, can we change books…pleeeeeease.
- Watch out for your nose. Just when you are not expecting it BAM!!! their head may come into contact with the protruding part of your face.
- THEY DON’T STOP…EVER!
