One of the many ways I know I'm parenting a toddler

I couldn't pick my favorite intro., so I'll give you all three.

In the spirit of keepin' it real around here:

Lest you ever, ever think I have it all together:

One of the many ways I know I'm in the throws of parenting a toddler again:

This is what the bottom of my purse has looked like for the past several days.

And, to really, really keep it real, I'll have you know that the food contents there loose in the bottom of my purse right on top of my trusty Carmex, are not even the result of just one incident of snack spillage!  Nope!  That, my friends, is the combined effort of a pretzel snack, a mixed nuts snack, and a Cheerios snack, which all spilled out into my purse in separate occurrences over the past week!  I blame the fact that my 3 year old loves putting things back in my purse, but can't properly seal a Ziploc bag!

At least I didn't have ants in there!  This time.  Yes, that's really happened to me.  Ants in my purse.  That time I blamed a different toddler spilling snacks in my purse combined with putting my purse on the ground at a soccer game!

Feeling better about your own self yet?

  1. I only have 1 little one, and that's what the bottom of my purse looks like ALL THE TIME. Add in a My Little Pony with knotted hair and a few broken crayons. :)

  2. In the interest of being real, as you said, that looks like my purse AND my car!

  3. Oh yeah, definitely the sign of a toddler! And you are not alone. ;)

  4. Are you sure you didn't snap a photo of my diaper bag? It looks very similar.

  5. Can I say that I LOVE your About Me tab!! Love it. And you are blessed to have your little one dancing in your kitchen! :-)

  6. my favorite bag now for my toddler is a planetwise snack bag.. it is FDA approved and has a velcro piece on it that my son can open AND close by himself. I love it! just a thought, even though eventually she'll learn it.... although my husband hasn't even mastered getting the ziploc fully closed yet.... there's still hope!


I'd love to hear what you think!
