Top Ten: Truths That Would Shatter My Toddler’s World


10) You’re completely illiterate. You’ve never written or read a single word in the three years you’ve lived with me. Not one. Sissy and I are straight lying when we look at your notes and tell you what they say. An open squiggly circle doesn’t say crap. You can’t read or write, Dude.

9)  I actually have zero desire to marry you. You’re super short, kinda self-centered and you eat all my food. The no job thing I can overlook but you won’t even do chores.
8) The other night in bed when you asked, “Mom do I sthink?” and I answered, “No, Babydoll,” you were actually pretty rife. Sometimes, when I have mastitis, I don’t really care enough.
7) My favorite show is so not Caillou. I actually can’t stand him. He’s hella whiny. I watch shows with scenes that would blow. your. mind. 
6) You will never be a robot. N0t when you’re 4 or 8 or big like mommy or ever in all your years on Earth. In order for you to be a robot you would have had to not be a human. It’s really too late.
5) That credit card I gave you has no value. It’s an old temporary debit card. When you swipe it at stores and cashiers tell you you did it yaaaay, I actually stood behind you and swiped the real, useful card.
4) That jacket you put on every morning.  Burn it.  The only fashion statement you’re making is “I have a pot belly and my mom can’t afford new clothes.”  Get over the jacket.  It’s a human 2T and you’re the size of a young bull.
3) When we are cycling and you’re in the trailer, you’re not doing anything to help me pedal.  Random crazy phrases and screams do not propel my legs.  But thanks for trying.  Your smile does sort of motivate me.

2) Those two-bite cinnamon rolls from Whole Foods?  They don’t taste like eggs.  They taste like heaven fluff.  I said that so I wouldn’t have to share.  You should like eggs, anyway.

And the number 1 truth that would shatter my toddler’s world is…
1) You were not with me when I was little.  It’s all been a lie.  I didn’t know you and you were not on the potty when I took all the pictures.   And even though I got along quite fine, thanks, I’m really happy we’ve met. You’re kinda a big deal, Kid.

    Cute! One day I told my boys that the day would come when they would both move out of the house and the three of us would go our own separate ways. I was thinking aloud without really realising what I was doing. I said it is so strange to know that that’s what’s going to happen when now the three of us are always together. They were devastated! They both hugged me at the same time and said that will never ever happen! and we will always always be together! I learned a lesson; I will not scare them like that again.

      Ryleigh is almost 9 and she still thinks we are going to live together! LOL. Thanks for sharing.

    This makes me think of the truths that would shatter my teenager’s world!
    Ex: “No, you are not going to be roommates with all your best friends.”

    Reblogged this on Harvesting Happiness Blog and commented:
    I seriously love this… Things I wish I could say to my six year old…

    “The waiter does not even know what Ninjago (I had to Google that to make sure I spelled it correctly) is…and the fact that you have only one ‘good’ Ninjago character to battle six evil ones does not make her want to help you even that out.”

    ‘I watch shows with scenes that would blow. your. mind.’

    Love this so much! Reading in bed, laughed out loud & almost woke up my toddler.

    I had to quell my guffaws so as to not wake everyone in this ‘king-size-but-somehow-still-crowded-bed’. I read your posts all the time. I laugh, I reflect, I commiserate. Keep it up!

    This has me in tears – so funny and so true. I would have to pay for some serious therapy if I read this aloud to my girls. I’ve just shared it on facebook. Love it!
