You Know You're the Parent of a Toddler When... - Page 39

Ooh! Ooh! I have one!

YKYtPoaTW... you stand topless in the bedroom doorway to entice your son in to take his nap. (Worked like a charm, he came running with a big toothy grin! )

When you're not embarrassed when your 2 year old yells, "mommy, I flush your poopies, okay?!?" in a public restroom...

Yesterday, I found myself saying a phrase that I never imagined would have reason to leave my lips: "Please, don't pee in the oven mitt!"

you find, in the vent for your fireplace, the following:

- your phone
- a red block
- a half eaten donut
- a calculator
- a truck

you keep a running narrative even when not with DC ("now mommy's going into the bathroom stall... now mommy hangs up her purse... mommy is peeing now")

you find yourself saying "GENNNNN TLE" whenever you pet animals, even when you're alone

a friend asks you how DS got "that red lump" on his head, and you say "which one?"

you make the sign for "thank you" whenever you thank somebody

your hair is ALWAYS in a ponytail or up, otherwise you're just asking for it

you can recite at least 3 or 4 board books, AND turn the pages appropriately, while watching TV and holding DC

You say the word "penis" a lot. "Yes, that's your penis," "DON'T grab your penis, you are poopy!" and "That's Daddy's penis. We don't grab Daddy's penis."

The local German bakery sets out a container of shortbread cookies (DS's fave) for you when they see you through the window

Yes! This is OUR house!


Also, When you mention 'grocery store' or 'library' and the first thing that DS does is sign 'cookie'. : It's the only way I can keep him occupied!

Or,

You say things like, 'no, we cannot go swing without any pants on!'

When you repeatedly have to say....
-You must have pants on to leave the house.

-Stop licking the dog.

-Wood chips are not food, please do no eat them.

-Fine, eat the wood chips, you'll be sorry later.

You also know that you are parenting a toddler when you start to think that 24/7 Olympics on your TV (which is normally NEVER on) is an ok thing and would give you a bit of a break.

Or you find yourself singing "Dog Train" or "Tantrum" and look around to find your children are no longer in the room with you.

Yeah me too!

And when you wake up hearing:

"EGGS! EGGGS!"
"No honey, those are my balls"

When it is too quiet in the other room where your toddler is playing (the bedroom - we co-sleep) and you go to see what she is doing and find......

she has taken off all her clothes, and is proudly wearing your leopard print thong as a "bodysuit" or one-piece swimsuit. And then won't take it off for another hour, opting instead to run around the house chasing the cats. :

I say the same thing to DS every time we go to the park.

We do too, in our room. Thankfully, this was the guest bath, where GMIL is staying. She likes to clean

When you have the following conversation daily:
DS - he wants (speaks of himself) that toy
Me - which toy?
DS - that other toy
DS - the blue one
and it takes you no more than 3 guesses to understand which kitchen utensil (usually NOT blue) he is referring to this time

When the usual conversation of the day is discussing that papa doesn't pee on the floor, the birds, the bed, the diaper, etc...

What a good book! The horse does take special talent.
