Where does that word come from anyways? Toddlers....... sounds like weebles, and the both wobble before the fall down. I would say toddlers are two to three year olds. That is my guesstimation.
Amazing what a child of this age can get into. They get into stuff you did not know they knew about. I came out of the shower one day to find one of my children (who shall remain nameless) making "eggies" on my carpet in front of the television. A dozen eggs broken and ground into my carpet, stirring with a spoon of course. All I did was try to get the stink off of me and I come out to this. Shells everywhere, and he was so proud. What can you do except, get dressed, get some spot-shot and clean up? Seriously, where do they come up with this stuff?
I truly think it is just them trying out their little world. Everything is new and wonderous to them. What will they come up with next. I used to lie in bed at night and tremble at the thought. Kids really are amazing at this age, they also need to have boundaries. Boundaries, which I have discussed before, help your child, they do not limit your child. Rules are good. Trust me on this, mother of four, rules rock.
Ask all of your friends today what was the weirdest thing their children did at this age, brace yourself, you will laugh so hard, you will cry.
God bless you and yours.
