I buy them 60 for $2-something at Target, because I get the fabric ones. I think the Dollar store ones are plastic. And believe me, the fabric ones are harder to eat (plus they stay on better in the bathtub... nothing like dealing with a screaming meltdown that includes large amounts of water when the band-aid comes floating off... ).

I don't hide them. I keep them WAYYYY up high...

when you dont remember the last time you went to go pee alone.
or shower.
or eat.

When you wonder where those strange bruises that woke up with come from when you cosleep.

When you wonder when you will ever be able to have quite for more than 15 seconds without questions about why? when? where? who? about every little thing.

When you're not so surprised to find your cell phone in the fridge or one small sandal in the bathroom vanity.

When the VCR player has both a VCR tape AND a DVD in it

When you have to "start" the apple before handing it over

When you're saying, "I love you TOO!" 50,000 times a day

My son is a preschooler now, but:

You know you have been the parent of a toddler when you see a very small shoe in the middle of a deserted sidewalk and do not find that odd at all, because you can think of 35 different ways it might have ended up there.

you have ever pulled over because you were *laughing too hard* to continue driving....

Small voice in the back of the van today "Where are my TOES?!"

........and the answer "They're in your boots, I hope anyway".....brings tremendous relief to the owner of the little voice, who hasn't worn her cowgirl boots in awhile, LOL

ykytpoatw...

You've had to assure a very distressed little girl that it's perfectly okay to flush the toilet because the poop has to go through that hole in order to go home and find its mommy.

...and you think nothing whatsoever of telling this story repeatedly to the little girl because it's the only thing that calms her down when it's time to flush.

(I just remembered this because DD, who is now almost 4, just started talking about Mommy and Baby poops again the other day out of the blue.)

The following sentence was spoken yesterday to a 6 year old, but it reminded me of this thread:

"Honey, please try not to spit the toothpaste on the cat, okay?" (Kitten had gotten in the sink while he was brushing...)

Harmony96 - CUTE BABY!!!!!!!

- you find it adorable and hilarious that, in her quiet disappointment, dd collapses onto her knees, then puts her head to the floor and lies in a child's pose for a minute, until she composes herself over some sort of frustration
- your pouting baby is mad at you and all you have to do is flash her the boob and that's the peace offering that works
- after nursing you are picking pieces of oatmeal off your boob
- your child nurses, stops to lick her lollipop, nurses some more, and offers you her lolly
