One of you guys should have given me the heads up that toddler words are like a waterfall, they come fast and don’t stop… ever. Or maybe you did warn me and I didn’t listen? That is absolutely possible.
And for the record- I swear toddler words have to be what everyone was talking about when they coined the phrase ‘diarrhea of the mouth’. I mean, do they ever stop talking? NO. Is talking better than whining? YES. Will Michael graduate high school if I blink my eyes? YES!
Ermahgerd! High school will be here before I know it! Where does the time go?
WATCH MICHAEL’S ALMOST 2 TODDLER SAYS VIDEO
You can’t tell me that wasn’t the most precious 2 minutes you have watched in a very long time, outside of your own kids! There is something special, something simply beautiful about watching a child learn new things. When a child discovers a new word or motor skill it
almost makes you forget about the hair you pulled out 3 hours earlier. Almost.
Isn’t motherhood supposed to be about celebrating the little things in life, the moments of simplicity? I think I record most of these moments so I don’t get sent to the funny farm before my time because those days where he WON’T-STOP-WHINING are intense.
Like this week. This week I had to hide from Michael on multiple occasions because 1) he gave me a bloody nose with his truck and 2) he would whine if I wasn’t constantly holding him. (Let’s not forget he is 37+ pounds.) I’m not talking about, “‘wah, life is crappy because I don’t have my favorite pair of slippers on”. I am talking a whine like I was beating him to a pulp. A pulp I tell ya! I know you can relate to how healthy hiding was for both of us. He ended up playing by himself (minus the screams) and I vegged out on Facebook with my blogging besties. Life was peaceful for a whole 10 minutes.
I forgot the reason I was hiding from him in the first place when I watched the playback of this video. *Insert sigh of relief*
