8 Proofs You Belong to a Toddler:


1. Your daughter runs out of the public restroom to loudly announce she just pooped, and you respond with a cheer of praise.

2. You drop something at the check out lane and tell the cashier “Oopsy!”

3. People staring at you doesn’t phase you in the least. You were over that around the one thousandth public temper tantrum.

4. Smelling your child’s butt is nothing but a normal, everyday occurrence.


5. The thought of meeting with friends any time after 9 oclock sounds like a walking zombie movie.

6. You are up to date on the most popular songs, movies, and television shows. . . for children under five.

7. You fear the day you ever run out of milk or goldfish crackers.

8. Friday night fun is a walk to the park, followed by that soft, welcoming bed, and for a reason even you do not fully understand, you would want it no other way.

  1. This is spot on! The oopsy remark killed me. My own children are 17 21 and 24 but i work as a nanny and my current little one is 16 months and oopsy is one of my most used words. Love this!!!!


    1. Thanks!! My husband was the one to actually say it the cashier one day, which made it even more funny being a grown man! 😉


    1. Yes, I noticed I can pick their noses without any feelings of disgust. It is in fact a sense of accomplishment for removing the culprit! 🙂


  2. How about when you’re crossing the street with another adult and you reach for their hand before you step out!


  3. Loved this! As a mother of 19 and 20 year old daughters, it is wonderful to be reminded of what life was like when they were younger. Be blessed today and find a way to bless someone else.

    1. Aw, thanks Shelly!! I am trying to relish each and every moment because I know it will go by much too quickly.


  4. Ha! I agree with all of these 100%. A few weeks ago, I was driving a little after 9 p.m. and it was the oddest experience. All the other drivers were on their way out for the night and all I could think about was getting home to my bed.


    1. Yes! My sister and her friend came over last weekend and they were about to just begin their night out I was happily crawling into bed!


  5. All so true! I would add to your list (because I’ve done these before): 1. When posing for a picture, even though you are just with adults, you will still say “Cheese!” 2. And, you can wipe a poopy bottom and resume your meal immediately after without even thinking about it.


  6. whoah this blog is excellent i really like studying your posts. Keep up the great work! You recognize, many individuals are searching round for this information, you can aid them greatly.


  7. Absolutely yes, to every one! 😀 I remember sniffing my kid’s butt one day and suddenly thinking, “Huh, I wonder what THAT looks like to other people.” lol!


    1. Haha, I am definitely in the same boat on this one. Who would want to do something so ridiculous and “hang out” when there is a soft, warm bed waiting for them with open arms? 😉


  8. 3 is my favorite. Whatever, the kid is throwing a tantrum. They do that. The best for me is when someone comes over to engage with the child. It stops them dead in their tracks. I love that!


    1. Oh yes, I agree! Perhaps I should start asking random strangers if they would do that for me during the next melt down sessions. 🙂


  9. Absolutely right on!!!! Love this, and all your posts! For some reason I keep liking them and I don’t think it’s letting me… but so you know, I do “like” and love them all so much!


I love to hear your thoughts!
