Toddler antics are a way of getting me ready for the teen years, right?

Some “scary” things have been happening around here with my little daredevil.  Somehow I think this is all supposed to toughen me up for when she starts driving in 14 years!

    1. It’s funny that you say that, Carol. I’m going to be signing her up for a gym program in April. We need to find constructive ways to climb without giving mama a heart attack!

  1. I think every year with your child is a step toward prepping you for the teenage years! It sounds like you have a climber! My nine year old daughter is currently preparing me by practicing sass. This is the first time that I have the opportunity to listen to your posts. meaning I have finally gotten around to plugging the speakers in…Loved it!

  2. What a week it has been with this toddler! At least there were no serious injuries, yet. She is exploring the cause and effect of her world, isn’t she?

  3. You have a busy life! I have to admit, I am okay that I no longer have a toddler in the house. I am trying to imagine writing and commenting with a toddler. Hmm, kudos to you and all the slicers who get both writing and commenting done while children are around them!

    1. It’s really hard, Jaana. I try to do it whenever she’s not around since I’m not on my technology when she is. That, in and of itself, is a huge part of the challenge (for me).

  4. Your posts take me back to the years when my kiddos were Isabelle’s age. Life was a series of adventures, my three were just like your Isabelle – energetic, imaginative and fearless. We did a playground every morning and every afternoon for many years….I used to be jealous of my friends who had kids who would do things like nap regularly and not have quite the inclination to adventure as mine seemed to. But, we survived…with many a tale to share.

  5. Sounds like it might be time for the big girl bed at home, too! Kids need a sense of adventure and they’re pretty rubbery, so it (usually) winds up ok. Sounds like she is definitely keeping you on your toes.

  6. Ahh… this reminds me how lucky I was. My sons are 10 and 8 now, but they never tried to climb anything. They tested me in other ways (and still do), but I was never concerned they would hurt themselves climbing out of bed or jumping off of couches!

    Her energy and confidence will be a benefit to her someday – as long as you don’t have a heart attack in the meantime!
