The 5 things you need to survive a toddler

The 5 things you need to survive a toddler:

  1. A great sense of humor, so you can laugh at even the worst disaster (think chocolate pudding everywhere)…
  2. A beloved stuffed animal, who can take your place & help them to fight monsters and other horrible imaginary creatures.
  3. An ability to survive on next to no sleep, even when the little one decides that 3 hours of sleep broken up into 10 minute bits at night is plenty – then does this all week. Heaven forbid that the word “nap” is even mentioned…
  4. The knowledge of how to get anything out of carpet, especially an entire container of vegetable oil.
  5. Cheerios (what, you thought they were just for eating?)!
