5 things not to do with a toddler

1. Leave the room where butt cream is readily available. They will find it. They will smear it all over.

2. Leave a cup of anything within reach. It will be all down the front of them and covering the floor within 2.5 seconds.

3. Loose any type of writing utensil in a room that they reside. They will find it and use it all over your walls, doors and furniture.

4. Slip and use a swear word. They will bring it out at the most embarrassing time when everyone within a 100 yards of you can hear.

5. Keep candy in the same place. They will get a chair, climb up and find it. Eat it. Smear it. 


  1. Oh hun... I have slipped and used a swear word many times!! I will have to tell you the story one day!

  2. WHO taught these toddlers how to smear????

    6. Keep the bathroom door shut at ALL TIMES for they will take a bath in the toilet water!

  3. 7. Leave a sweet tea with a straw readily available and leave the room. When you return, said tea will be consumed and toddler will say, "mmmm ah-licious"

  4. 8. Leave tissue and/or baby wipes within reach as these boxes clearly need to be emptied. Oh toddlers, what fun they are!

    1. I hope your recovery from surgery is going well! :)

    2. Thank you! I am hanging in there :)

  5. I totally agree with all of these! I have had to move the candy canes up to higher ground since Liam discovered their existence :)
    We've had pen on walls, butt cream on furniture, powder on furniture, coffee on the bookshelf...little monkeys lol!
