That Awkward Moment When… Toddler Parent Edition

Awkward moments. We all have them, but I would venture to say that toddler parents probably have them a whole lot more often than many others. Why? Toddlers do embarrassing things…often…because, well…they’re toddlers. It’s how they roll. Here are a few common/socially uncomfortable moments toddlers tend to induce. I always love those “that awkward moment when…” posts, so I thought I’d make my own version – awkward moments: toddler parent style.
