10 Ways You Know You Have a Toddler

Yup... I have a toddler!

When I was driving my kids to the farm the other day on a non pre-school day, listening to the boys bicker in the back seat made me start a list… You know you have a toddler if…

Yup, because that is how ideas for blog posts come to me… while driving, observing my kids… you know all those things we do on a daily basis as a mom.

From the classic phrases I use during the day, to simply not being phased by poop, puke, or any other bodily function that my kids can come up with. 

I think anyone who has a toddler, or two can completely relate to these… please comment with your own as well!
