Toddlers: Big Drama in a Little Body


Today has been one of those days. 


The type where the minute you open your eyes your toddler is just being all toddler-y and the sun isn’t even up. Before 10 am she’s already thrown several tantrums in public all because she wants to wear another moms Ugg’s at her gym class or I won’t let her type on the cash register at Target. 

The type of day you so look forward to the plans you have while she naps like making Toddler muffins before that banana you’ve been saving grows mold and maybe watch that show that’s been recorded and waiting for you.

But toddlers usually have different plans. Like screaming until they finally fall asleep in your arms and every time you try to make the transfer, it’s met with a blood curdling scream. 

So I gave up.
 It’s okay if she doesn’t nap today and the muffins aren’t baked. It’s okay if I eat a handful of chocolate chips even if I had been so successful on my diet. 

It’s okay because “His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning” . Thank goodness for that!
