You Know You Have A Toddler If...

You are taunted by little people...

Remember those old Jeff Foxworthy You might be a redneck if… series?  In the back of my head for months I have been coming up with my own You know you have a toddler if… series.

In the past couple days I have wrote most of them down, but I also enlisted my twitter followers, as well as Facebook likers to put together a great list.  While I tried to focus on making just 8, I think eventually I may have to make it into a series of posts!

I would love for some of the readers here to also chime in with their own you know you have a toddler if’s!
