If you’re ever wondering why us mamas incessantly talk about coffee and wine (or why you’ll almost always find me pairing dinner with an Old Fashioned) it’s likely due to the fact that for the most part of the day, we are trying our very best to reason with tiny versions of ourselves that lack any common sense but have all the necessary qualities to render a very successful future in dictatorship.
This past week, I took a moment to jot down some of the deep and meaningful things my 2.5-year-old spewed throughout a typical day we spent together, solely for your entertainment.
Well, also because I’d love to have these on file for reference.
The scenarios and context are as irrelevant as the arguments themselves, but nonetheless make for a few legitimate points.
And the three sentences I underlined? They were the ones that made every challenging moment melt away, to make room for forced kisses and loads of snuggles. Because that’s parenthood, after all.
SHIT MY TODDLER SAYS
