Ups and Downs

Ups and Downs of parenting a toddler

Up: Crawling/Walking/Running Down: Trying to escape every 3.5 seconds of the day

Up: Sleeping in a big girl bed Down: Realizing she is no longer stuck in her crib

Up: Learning to color/draw Down: Crayon/Marker lines on the table

Up: Being potty trained! Down: icky public restrooms

Up: Talking Down: Talking (especially NO!!)

Up: Increasing independence Down: DO IT BY SELF!! (but only when running late to an appointment)

Even with all of the "downs", I wouldn't ask for anything different!

Oh man, the talking is about to drive me insane. Though cute, it never stops and there are moments I crave just a few seconds of silence.
