12 Ways Husbands are Just Like Toddlers


My husband... Playing with my ToddlersIt wasn’t until the other night I realized how much my toddlers and husband are alike.  Just like how moms and their toddlers are alike…

It was actually kind of comical at first, and I tried to coax my husband into making a video blog post about it, with me and the kids. But unfortunately for me, and my readers… he doesn’t care for the video camera, or really being in the limelight.

There went my golden idea!

But I reached out to my readers to see how they their their husbands and toddlers are alike as well, and boy did you guys deliver!  Mixed in with my own list, I got some great ones submitted, and of course everyone has been credited!

If you have one to include feel free to leave a comment below!
