The upside of toddlers

Toddlers get a bad rap, but there are definitely more than a few good points to having your baby grow up!  In no particular order, some of my favourite things about this stage.

  • Toddlers have a sense of humour.  They’re funny and silly, sometimes even on purpose!
  • They learn something new every day – although sometimes it’s how to unroll the toilet paper.
  • They’re getting old enough to entertain themselves for small periods of time – enough for me to check my email most mornings at least.
  • “On purpose” snuggles.
  • Kisses.  Blown by hand or right on the mouth, it’s the sweetest thing.
  • Going to the store no longer requires a huge diaper bag.  Snacks, sippy cup and a spare diaper, just in case – that can fit in a real purse!
  • They’re interactive now and you can play real games!
  • Story time is more about stories and less about eating the book.
  • They’re learning to communicate, so there’s less guessing about why they’re crying.
  • They’re so cute!
