"We don't eat food from the trash!"
"We don't lick people." "We don't throw our toys in the trash." "We don't pour shampoo all over the bathroom" If you have little ones, these phrases do not surprise you. I cannot believe the words that have come out of my mouth at times. Sometimes I have to just stop for a second and laugh inside as I say these things. Well, now that we are back into toddlerhood, I am once again saying those phrases daily. Isaiah is 2 1/2 yrs. old. Enough said. He is into everything and he is a boy. So, much of my day is spent cleaning up the messes that he sneaks off and makes or asking him not to do gross things. This will not end soon. I don't expect it to, but because I have left the stage and now returned I realize it WILL end. My perspective with the two new little members of our family isn't always perfect, but I do know that this is a season and I am "trying" to embrace it. It will be gone and despite my doubts, I will regret it. If you are dealing with this in your little ones lets band together and get through this. I would love to hear the phrases you have said that you never thought would come out of your mouth. I could use a good laugh today!!
