I live in an apartment complex and the other day while I was coming down the hallway I could hear my family. Oh boy, I wonder what our neighbors hear coming from our place?! I laughed with my husband while we came up with the top things we say daily to our 2 toddlers:
“Get off your sister!” I know they are just playing, but can’t they play nicer? Nope! Pushing, wrestling, just laying on each other so the other can’t move….happens every day. And they aren’t even 3 years old yet!
“Do you have a poopy butt? Yay you went poop!” Changing diapers on not one, but two babies, each day. Doesn’t phase me anymore so I forget that other people typically don’t talk about poop this much in a day especially when we are cheering with our potty training son when he goes poopy and tells us about it. Yay you went poop!
“Get out of the litter box!” This is why we keep the baby gate up. Let the cat have some peace now that the kids have taken over what use to be his, the whole house, so at least let him have his litter box be kid-free.
“Sister, stop stealing your brother’s food!” My husband says our son eats 1/2 his breakfast and our daughter eats 1 1/2 breakfast each morning. The other day our son started crying when she took his cheese. “My cheeeesseee!!!” And yes I have already tried using that to our benefit “you better eat your dinner before sister takes it.”
And finally, the vacuum. Yes at least once a day now the vacuum is needed. Cheerios, crackers, so many crumbs and messes needed to be vacuumed up. I even sing along “every day I’m vacuuming.”
