Writer's Workshop: Things I Learned From my Toddler(s)

Hats can change your whole personality

Things I Have Learned from My Toddler (s)

Here are some things that I have learned from my toddlers.....

**Popsicles heal all boo boos

**Die cast Thomas trains shouldn't be projectile toys
**Any spot can be made a comfy spot

**Finger painting is more fun when you use yogurt and put your creation on the television **Smiles are are yawns.

**anything is fun through the eyes of a child.
**Kitchen utensils....can be used anywhere.

**Playing in the water/sprinkler is fun no matter how many times a day you play.
**A stick and a twig can turn Mommy and Kota into Captain Hook and Peter Pan
**Trampoline plus anything makes for lots of outdoor fun.

**No matter what it is, if it is something you have...your kids want it, too. (I was showing Jed my blisters from raking and Kota wanted to have blisters, too.)
** Crayons take (+/-) 3 hours to run through a toddler's system.
**When nap times actually happen with toddlers, mommies should take advantage.
If you enjoyed this and want to play along...stop on by Mama's Losin' It and play along. This is today's Writer's Workshop...there are 4 other prompts to choose from.

Loved it! Great lessons these little people teach us huh? You are the second one to mention yogurt as artwork, I'm sure Arabella will figure that one out soon! Your babies are adorable!

I love the last photo, because it made me remember that my sisters and I didn't always nap in our beds during the day, but instead snuggled up on the couch. My two year old is starting to lose her naps, but she loves cuddling up on the couch so maybeI can get her to sleep there!
