In that same vein, when your toddler has no molars, so YOU have to pre-chew some of her food (like lettuce and other leafy veggies). Or when she doesn't have quite enough teeth to take a decent bite, so you "perforate" her food w/ your teeth so she can get the bite.

Oh, the drama of the banana. We've had some of that here, too.

You rearrange the furniture in the dining room to provide a clear path, because DD won't go anywhere in the house unless she's riding her tricycle... and it's easier to find a different configuration for the table and chairs than it is to listen to constant screaming when she can't get through because a chair is in the way.

You have to immediately hide dirty diapers because DD throws a complete fit if she can't carry them around after a change. And giving her a clean diaper rolled up like a dirty one doesn't count.

...They dump a hundred billion beads on the floor by the handful, and when you get mad, they look at you innocently and say "But Momma, I was feeding the birds."

People think you're crazy for calling certain things by names other than their own....

Oven mitt = BAH BAH
Pacifier= Boss
Snacks = Nak

When you are sorting and folding the midweek laundry and have

2 adult female outfits

2 adult male outfits

3 teen girl outfits

3 little boy outfits

17 size 24 mo outfits

Because your toddler gets THAT messy and changes clothes THAT often

-all of your childrens books have bite marks
-your child randomly bites you or licks you while trying to give you a kiss
-more food ends up on the floor, other kids or all over himself then in his mouth
-when all your clothes have stains
-when your car smells like rotten milk because DS thought it was fun to pour his milk everywhere
-when DS rather get in the toy chest with the toys rather than take them out to play with them
-when DS suddenly kicks and slaps you in his sleep
-when you feed DS yummy nutritious food and he makes the face of death but will eat dust bunnies and and little specks of dirt
-when DS loves swimming so much you have to make sure he doesnt throw himself into any body of water, including fountains, to go for a quick swim

I could go on and on

You take a sip of your wine noticing it tastes rather "off" and suddenly realize where the play-dough disappeared to earlier in the evening...

God. Yes.

Or the toast was cut, and shouldn't have been. Or the toast WASN'T cut, and should have been. Sigh.

DS replaces the "c" in "corn" with a "p". And then says he has hot porn.

...when it has become routine for you to pick cheerio or cheerio like cereal out of your purse, your shoe, your car, you rug, your bathtub...

...when you eat said cheerio without even knowing how long it's been at said location without batting an eye.

...you count said cheerio as a meal.

...you get home from a friends house and find one of their coasters in your diaperbag.

...your time outside is spent climbing up and down the front porch steps and carrying around toys that must come outside and then are promptly forgotten.

...your coffee table has a small pile of Annies Honey Bunnies cereal on it at all times for snacking.

...every shelf and table in the living room is now either completely empty or a toy shelf.

Oh yes, EVERYTHING with standing water is a bath! And she has to get in or life as we know it will end.

How about where you have to run past the deoderant aisle in the store because your 16 mo will become all firey if she doesn't get to try them all on her pits.
