Toddlerhood is a great time of learning, experimenting, and emotion! We had some (we still have some) hard times with our 3 year old. The years between the ages of 1 and 3 were something else and he learned so much! From eating, walking, and talking, to dancing and operating “machinery” with dad. the life of a toddler is a rough one, but here is the REAL life with a toddler and what they learn to do and how they make us laugh every single day!

From the day that a baby is born, they have a crazy innate sense of how to make a mother feel loved, cherished and needed. Our babies will always need us. This video just shows how during the toddler years, they become so independent! some good, and some bad. The current threenager stage that we are fighting can have some nasty days come with it! Power tools, really? Take it in mama, because they only go through these years once. Some times, all you can do is laugh at how toddler’s behave.
Take in the real life with a toddler and eat it up. Take it all for what it’s worth! And that my friend, is more than you could every imagine! Let them be kids, let them learn and explore. Yet be there for them when they need it most. When they make YOU upset, always remember to take a breath, they are still little and they do still need you. Help them learn their feelings and explore them. Laugh with them, cry with them and hold them tight.
Cheers, to the toddler years!
