Am I right?
Facebook is a place for me to vent some steam as a parent. Most of the time, I just want to be heard. I just want people to see glimpses of my parent life and giggle with me. I find that laughing over the crazy things that happen (like my two-year-old groping my realtor) helps take the edge off and makes it less likely I’ll sob over my DP 10.
I share these moments most on my personal profile, but I think my blog audience needs this just as much as I do. #Iknowyoufeelme
So here you have it: Toddler Tales. I’m going to start sharing all the things that my toddler does for you to laugh over with me. The need for commiseration is real so please share yours in the comments!
PS— for those of you that don’t know, I refer to my two-year-old son as LM on social media.
Toddler Tale # 1
Me: You want a snack?
Me: You can have grapes.
*Pulls grapes out of the fridge*
LM: NO NOOOOOOOOO grapes!
*Ignore hysterical shrieking*
*sets grapes in a bowl*
LM: No grapes. No!
*sets bowl on the bench*
Me: You don’t have to eat them, but if you want a snack, here are your grapes.
*LM stalks over to grapes*
*jabs at them*
LM: No grapes. No grapes. No!
Me: If you hit the grapes, you will go into time out.
LM: No grapes! *reaches for grapes* No NO NO! *picks one out of bowl* No grapes! *eats grape* NO GRAPE *eats third grape* NO GRAPES! *Eats all the grapes*
