10 Things I Hate About Toddlerhood

“My twins just turned two years old, and although I love them with every fiber of my being, I am now living a completely new reality :: I am officially in the throes of a love-hate relationship with toddlerhood. Here are just few reasons why…

1. “Baby Shark”

I haaaaaaate thiiiiis song, doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo.
Hate. This. Song, doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo.
Hate. This. Song, doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo.
Hate. This. Song…

{And I know you secretly hate it, too.}

2. Cheerios

Now before y’all get verklempt, I am WELL AWARE of the recently issued warning that multiple cereals have been found to have weed killer in them. I checked the list and checked it twice and chose a Cheerio knock-off that is hopefully weed killer-free. Hopefully…

Anyway, the twins have milk and some version of O’s every morning. However, it has become apparent to me that O’s have multiple toddler-associated purposes other than nourishment. I have found O’s in my bra, purse, work bag and shoes. I have been force-fed O’s that are snot-soaked and spit out. I have dodged O’s that have been hurled at my head, nearly missing losing an eye on a few occasions.

But what is worse is that I have found O’s I know have been “hiding” for a significant period of time and they look EXACTLY the same as that day they went missing, which makes me question whether having a little weed killer in them is the worst that could happen. {Things that make you go hmmmmm…}”
