Forgotten Chapters from the Toddler Chronicles - Adventures With Ellie

Forgotten Chapters from the Toddler Chronicles

Call it mom brain cloud or something but everyday I say this with my youngest. "OH MY I totally forgot toddlers were like this. This is the period of wonder, excitement, discovery and awe but it can also bring meltdowns, the world of No and are you serious right now moments.

I want to cherish and keep ALL of them moments because as I've been saying it goes by so fast. Way too fast. I already see so much of the moments slipping through my fingers here is my way to hold on a little bit longer.

The pretty, ugly and the interesting I've had the pleasure of reliving with my youngest:

  • "Cookies I want cookies"  after asking for bananas,eggs and bacon and it being in front of them.
  • "Mama I have to Pee" regardless if they just went 5 minutes before you walked out the door
  • Saying "I'm hungry" right after eating
  • Naptime the most biggest of battles or the easiest thing in the world depending on modes.
  • I'm tired mama... but wouldn't nap
  • The need of the "NEED AT THIS MOMENT and not a second later
  •  No don't eat your boogies!
  • Being able to watch the same cartoon episode more then 3 times back to back
  • The excitement of meeting your shadow
  • The giggles that comes from playing with bubbles
  • Falling asleep while eating a good meal
  • Asking the same question 10 different ways in less then one minute
  • loving to cuddle and holding hands 
  • wanting to run everywhere 
  • stopping and actually enjoying the view 
  • asking for the same food for all 3 meals
  • falling asleep in the most strangest of places
  • Waking up before the sun even with a crazy night and have energy of someone who slept 12 hrs.
  • Singing at the top of their lungs no matter where they might be
  • Giving the most sincere I love you, you will ever hear

If you have a little one remember that times flies way faster then we like so just take a breathe and pick up that bowl of food and the toys that are all over the floor. Clean up that messy face and give them a hug.

Trust me you soon will be chasing after them to give them a hug.. Toddlerhood has nothing on fun of the Teenage Years brings... But I'll leave that for another post!
