A Toddler's Guide to Life

Grown-ups are rubbish at seeing things. Therefore you must place any object you wish for them to observe as close to the surface of their eyeball as possible. 

Bedtime is not one specific time but a bed period-of-time encompassing a minimum of three hours. This is YOUR time. Enjoy it. 

In times of crisis, being horizontal helps. 

We absolutely and categorically CAN put on our own shoes and coats and we most definitely can feed ourselves and brush our own teeth. Except for when we can't and then someone else should do it. 

It's mine. 

The word 'no' should be your default word. If you're unsure about something, say 'no'. If you don't want something say 'no'. If you do want something say 'no'. You can always cry about it later if needed.

No grown-up shoe is complete without the addition of small objects or snacks.

We are the masters of hide and seek. How grown-ups ever find us is one of life's inexplicable mysteries. 

Motherhood The Real Deal

  2. hahaha! I love this. It did make me chuckle. Toddlers are so funny. #MMBC

  3. LOL this made me properly laugh out loud. It's so simple, and what rules to live by. If only we could too. Thanks so much for linking up to #coolmumclub with this xx

  4. I grinned my head off through the whole of this post! Very funny! I love the simple fact that no adult shoe is complete with out small objects/food....the amount of things i've found in shoes over the years!!!! #dreamteam

  5. It is so true. I have had to learn to change my immediate "No" to my girls as I felt like it was the only word in their vocab. #dreamlinky
