There are couple of things parents have to get used to, when their babies become toddlers. Some of them are:
Shopping with toddlers:
It can be a very daunting task. You have to keep an eye on your toddler while you do your shopping. You will have to get ready to pay for everything he/she destroys.
Getting used to messes:
Smear peanut butter onto the sofa and jam onto the curtains. Hide a sausage behind the stereo and probably forget all about it all summer. Stick their fingers into the flower beds and rub their fingers on the clean wall. Cover the wall with crayons.
Getting used to messes in the car:
Buy a chocolate ice cream and put it in the clove compartment. Leave it there. Pour packets of crisps all over the seats. Slot a coin in the CD player compartment
Getting ready to go out:
Wait outside the toilet door for half an hour.Go out. Come back in. Go out again. Walk down the front path. Walk back up it again. Walk down it again. Walk very slowly down the road for five minutes. Stop to inspect every stone,cigarette butt, piece of used chewing gum, dirty tissue and dead insect along the way. You can, retrace your steps. Scream that you 've had as much as you can stand until all the neighbours come out and stare at you. Give up and go back in the house. You are now just about ready to try taking a small child for a walk.
