Toddler Tales Top Ten

Ten selfish reasons why, after seven years, I'm glad to have waddler toddler in my life again.

10. I have an excuse to buy really cute over-sized bags.

9. I have a reason to carry said bag filled to the top with her things and mine. I have a place for everything!

8. I have a snack at my fingertips everywhere I go. Yes, I share with her . . . unless I can get away with it.

7. I have an excuse to leave any place I don't want to be, and in a hurry.

6. I have someone to read really silly rhyming board books to. My boys are thankful for this as they've moved on from Moo, Baa, La La La. I haven't.

5. I have an excuse to buy, and play with, brightly patterned nesting boxes, wooden blocks and cool stacking rings. (Not to mention dolls this time around.)

4. I have a viable reason for a messy home. It really is a reason, not an excuse. The girl is the Destroyer.

3. I get to have play dates with my mom friends.

2. I have a reason to sit down and do absolutely nothing at the end of the day (or the middle of it) because someone needs to cuddle.

1. I have someone in my life who literally lights up when she sees me -- every time!

lighting up when they see us is tuly one of the BESt things. When you are struggling through a day or a week they have that special way of making you feel like a million bucks.

Having little ones is a great excuse for a messy house! I use that one all of the time. :)
I'm a little sad because my "baby" just turned three. I'm trying to convince my hubby that it's time for another one!

I love cuddle time and I love that Davey is getting to the age where he brings me a book and pats my lap because he wants to read. Sandra Boynton are some of our very favorite to read.
