He also has some pretty funny things to say about life and how HE views it. But there are moments in that little human’s life where he tests my sanity.
Allow me to give you an example:
It’s a Monday morning and you’re up and ready for the day. Your little human has gotten up and is in a fantastic mood. PARENT JACKPOT!!! You get them fed, dressed, teeth brushed, and they are sitting every so sweetly watching cartoons and eating their FIRST breakfast of the day.
You have graduated now to the car and your little human asks to watch a show…. sure, why not, you have been GREAT this morning!!!! I am so excited for my day right now I can barely contain it! I am ready to get this day……...STOP…… RIGHT……… THERE! 🥊🛑🚨
We interrupt this great morning for a little toddler tantrum. Please sit back and enjoy the show!
I FORGOT MY SNACK!
Oh man that’s all? I got you covered human! I got your snack right there! (FIST PUMP💪👊). Nope not good enough! That little 2-foot-tall human is now on the verge of a full-blown melt down and ALL because he couldn’t WALK his snack out to the car!?
Think fast mom, think fast. We need a distraction…………. Chocolate!🍫🍬🍫🍬
Ok little human, how about I give you a piece of chocolate when you get home if you are super good the rest of the drive to daycare! Please say yes, please say yes!!
OK MOMMY! But can you help me wipe my tears? 😭🤯🥰
HECK YEAH, I CAN! ...............Nice play mom!
Not all tantrums work out this way but if we learn to take life as it comes and take a breath, it may not seem so bad. Believe me, I get frustrated, mad, and feel just down right defeated sometimes but I pick myself back up and live to parent another day!
Signing off for now
SMILE its good for the soul 😜
