Parenting my toddler or How I am still sane is beyond me!

Parenting a toddler can be mentally exhausting.
You have to be 20 steps ahead of them, cause those little feet catch up and on pretty darn quickly.

I know it’s a wonderful time for them – learning new things, testing boundaries (aka pushing mommy’s buttons)

I KNOW you know what I mean!

You approach new ideas, foods, outings and anything out of their comfort zone with false confidence all while sweating more than a thief about to get caught, your heart beating faster than the day you lost your virginity.

Most situations are tackled with the precision and fineness of the bomb squad and other times you are totally up in their face ghetto like:
“AH HELL NO, YOU AIN’T TALKING TO ME LIKE THAT GIRLFRIEND!”

Some days it feels like you are trying to get the cool kid at school to like you with the same fear of being rejected, shot down or laughed at.

One minute they are flying high on life and yogurt, the next they are throwing it back at you (literally) and melting down because you fed the cat, after you asked them if they wanted to feed the damn cat and they said no, so you fed the cat and it was still the wrong thing. (True story – 6:20am this morning). Lord help me when my days start like that.

Pass me the wine.

    LOL! My husband has that happen to him with Nevaeh at least once a week… Then she makes him promise that he will wait for her the next morning. So we all wake up and he says “are you coming?” and she says NO! LOL! Then a few days go by and we start all over again. I’ve just come to find it funny. Then again, maybe N doesn’t meltdown as much… 🙂 Hang in there momma… You’ll be a pro at it by her teens! 😛
