Toddlers: Getting Away With Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING!
The other day, I was eating a cheese sandwich when the toddler came over and took a bite from the end – the other end was in my hand heading towards my mouth. Sitting there is disbelief at his confidence and boundary crossing I carried on with lunch, after all; I was sat on the floor so anything below the sofa is fair game for toddlers right?
The day before that, his first words on the monitor that morning were “MUMMY! POO!”. The week before that, Oscar got a finger in the eye. I’ve also had several occasions in public where T has reminded me that his bowels are on the move or the apple he’s eating is no good for him and is therefore a good projectile or that the woman sat next to him on the bus is “bleugh”. I don’t know about you, but if I did half the things that T does these days I’d either be arrested, sectioned or thumped. How can they get away with it?
It’s bad enough trying to contain or entertain a toddler, but add members of the public to the mix or people you still want to be friends with and you’ve got embarrassment waiting to happen. Most of the time it’s cute or you can laugh it off, but when your toddler runs after random men shouting “Daddy” (true story) it’s hard to know which way to look!
Ask everyone to come and have a look at their poo, tell a stranger about how Mammy doesn’t wee out of a tail, wipe bogies on Mammys coat or tell the bin men that you love them rockandrollpussycat.co.uk
We bumped in to an acquaintance when we had our daughter. Their son, 2, kept reminding me, over and over, that I have a vagina. Also, he had a penis. As he kept telling me. Pretty sure that would just be strange as an adult. https://katykicker.com
