Getting the boat ready for Sturgeon fishing in Seaside in a week
I was over at my parents tonight and was talking with my mom about how old Sage was, and for some reason I was saying she was still 16 months, but then my mom told me, um no she is actually 18 months. Is she really a year and a half old at the end of this month? I guess so. When I think about the fact that I can't turn my back on her for a second, and the fact that she has already gotten a black eye and is running and climbing on everything, I suppose she his a Toddler.
So I need some help from all of you other mom's out there..... Toddler 101
1. How do you entertain a toddler? Jeramy got into the habit of taking her to Cabelas everyday to see all of the stuff, we take her to feed ducks, to the park, on playdates at Andrea's with baby Carter, play outside. Today I let her color with markers...I just shut my eyes and decided it was best if I didn't watch, and just cleaned her at the very end. Her whole house and backyard looks like Chuck E Cheese.
2. What do you feed a toddler? She still won't eat anything...I even froze everything, blended into popcycle and she spits it out. She won't eat any fruit or vegitable. She won't drink milk or juice, only water. So I got all the flavored water and she won't drink that and I have blended vegitables into hamburger etc...but she spits it out. I know she can't just eat twinkies and chili cheese frittos...lol
3. How do you do anything when a toddler is awake? I am trying to figure out how to cook, bathe, anything for a few minutes by myself when she is awake...I am slowly realizing that may never happen again...lol
All of my cousins and friends are laughing at me and saying..."uh huh...now you know what I was talking about"....I don't understand how people have more than 1 baby. All of my cousins have 3-4 kids close in age and I am in awe of how they do it...oh boy, we are in for qute the ride.
