9 Things Toddler Mums Can Relate To, According to Thelma

June 27, 2022

If you think babies are a handful, wait till you meet toddlers. Here’s a list of things toddler mums can relate to, according to Thelma: 

Eating alone is a no-no 

Toddlers will beg for everything you put in your mouth, and sometimes, they’d just try to take it without asking. If you want to enjoy your meal alone, hide in your room. Good luck with that though because hiding from a toddler is close to impossible.

Going to the toilet alone? Impossible 

They are like a shadow, they follow you everywhere, even to the toilet. The smell doesn’t faze them so you better get used to it. 

Always going out with extra clothes 

If there’s one thing about toddlers, it’s that they are going to stain their clothes…and yours too. Sometimes, they just want to roll in the dirt and you have to be ready for such.

Waking up to find them in your bed 

Now that they can walk, they know how to find their way to your bed without your invitation. So remember to leave space for them. 

When there’s silence, you know it’s bad news 

Toddlers are always up to no good. When you can’t hear your toddler anymore, check on them as soon as you can…if you like your house. 

Playing the same game 500 times 

And it won’t be enough because they’ll still cry once you stop. To be with a toddler is to have strength 24/7. 

Knowing all the lines to cocomelon and not by choice 

You’ll know the lines to every other cartoon. You’ll be well-versed on the call and responses, the dances as well. If you don’t know how to dance, practice before your baby becomes a toddler. 

Constantly saving them from killing themselves

The worst part is that they will wail, kick and sulk because you didn’t allow them to swallow a pebble they saw on the floor. God abeg. 

Your home will always be littered with toys 

No matter how many times you tidy up, your house is always going to be messy, thanks to your toddler. As they grow older though, you can teach them to clean up after themselves, but until then, pele. 

As you prepare for your toddler, here’s an article on a week in the life of a stay-at-home mum
