Dear you.. What’s it like to have a toddler amongst the other two you already have is a frequent question I get asked. Well, I’ve given it some thought and the only way I can describe living with a toddler is like having a heavy caffeine dependent chimpanzee who is allergic to sleep, criticism& full meals. There’s no other description.
Bedtimes are unpredictable. One day you can do a lovely evening routine that consists of a bubble bath, creaming Their body, fresh pyjamas, a story & off up the stairs and off to drift to the land of nod (am I actually describing a newborn here?) or there’s some nights that consists of you fighting to get their arms through their pyjamas, physically holding down their body to change their bum & then spending a hour running up and down the stairs fetching all their possessions that they’ve left and desperately need at night time like their 14” Pj mask toy, the 5 mashums, their piece of plastic they’ve desperately been holding on to all day that fell off a toy.. you name it some nights the list is endless.
You’ve got to have a steady head to take out a toddler in public along with your other children. Some days it’s a dream and you have a good day. They’ve listened to you well, they remembered their manners, they’ve held your hand and you’ve enjoyed the day.. then there’s the other days. Yeah THOSE days. The days you want the ground to swallow you up. The days where you are running after your toddler shouting “stop!” And they run off even raster channeling their inner Usain bolt. The days where they start lifting up your top in public and laughing saying BOOBIES! The days where you’ve used the last nappy in their changing bag and your nostrils start twitching. The days where they’re on the floor in your local newsagent because no your not paying £7.45 for a magazine just so they can have a flimsy piece of plastic with peppa bloody pigs face on it!
