GRANDPA JOE TODDLER OBSERVATIONS
Summer vacation is over, and I am back on toddler duty one day a week for my school teacher son and D-I-L. Cole is 4, Connor is 2. With just one day sitting I have the following toddler observations:
In the history of toddlers, a four year old has never answered YES to the question “Are you ready to go to bed?”
If toddlers see you, they won’t play.
If a toddler does not see you when he falls he will not cry.
The only toy worth having is the one that another toddler is playing with.
In the history of toddlers, a four year old has never said YES, to the question “Do you need to pee?”
A hula hoop and a toy tractor equals a beach comber machine from the Jersey Shore.
In the history of toddlers, a four year old has never answered NO to the question “Do you want desert?”
If Grandpa does a silly dance he will hear, “Do it again!” If he does it again he will hear, “Do it again!”
In the history of toddlers, a four year old has never said, “OK Grandpa, that’s enough” after a silly dance.
Grandpas do not understand a word that a two year old says.
Four year olds can interpret everything a two year old says.
Toddler rules make sense to toddlers…leave them alone.
No matter how long you let it cool, any food that has been heated will be “Too hot!” to eat.
A toddler’s appetite is inversely proportional to the amount of food available at meal time.
Any scrape, bump or bruise will hurt a toddler more if you act concerned.
Poop is funny.
