Toddler Parent Rules

Rule #1 – Do not start a game with a toddler that you don’t plan on repeating over and over again at least twenty five times. Also, do not start a game that you will be too tired from after the first fifteen times. Then you’ll be tired and have an angry toddler on your hands.

Rule #2 – Do not give toddlers any food you cannot wash out of the carpet and/or feed to the dog.

Rule #3 – Do not give toddlers anything in the car that can be used as a small projectile.

Rule #4 – “That” is always more interesting than “this”. Once they have “that”, “that” becomes “this” and is no longer what they want. Now they want some other “that”. Then a different “that”. Then maybe they will go back to wanting what they had before. Which you can no longer find because they used it as a small projectile. Repeat.

Rule #5 – Whatever bedtime routine you thought you had will change. Over and over again.

Rule #6 – Clean clothes will always wind up on the floor. Especially when your toddler is in “Fill and Spill” mode.

Rule #7 – Don’t try to tell your toddler to stay put anywhere. As long as they can move somewhere else, they will.

Rule #8 – Hairstyles will always look best right after you have finished. Three minutes after that (if you are lucky and they last that long), it is all fair game.

Rule #9 – Everything is more fun with a bubble machine.

Rule #10 – Big kids can entertain a toddler. Some adults can also double as big kids.

Do you have any rules you would add?
