Renegade Toddler

Check out the shoes!

Ahhh yes, I have one of those. Let me start by saying I looooove my little man. He can be the sweetest most precious guy. . .especially when those eyes are closed.

However, since he has started walking, about 3 months ago I have been the most tired mommy. I started reading Toddlerwise about a week ago, and like usual realized I shoulda started this book months ago.
Some of you may have seen this on my facebook status, but I'll say it again, I love this quote from the book.
"Ah, yes, the mobile toddler. There is no question that a toddler's mom is a tired mom, and for good reason. The emotional and physical energy needed to supervise an energy-packed tot can take down the most physically fit mom. If your toddler happens to be a boy, add fifty perecent more energy."
I just can't tell you how much peace that gives me! For the longest time I just thought I was weak sauce! ha ha I used to fall into bed at night and wonder how other moms did it. . . and I only have one! But as life goes, I am adapting to it and I will make it. If you ever see me in public and I have a dazed and confused look on my face just remember its cause I have a toddler :)

I would like to close my post today with some pics of my awesome little man. He does make me laugh. He's been into shoes and hats lately. . . and eye patchs, but that's a different story for another time!
Loves his Sheriff hat!

Let's close the door on mommy, that's funny! :)

Isaac climbs up there before bedtime to "dance" to Veggie Tales. Toddlerwise and both Grandmas are freaking out right about now! :)

Snack before nap time! Oh nap time how I love thee!


  1. I can relate on so many levels! And I remember that same hat & shoe phase with Caleb. And it hasn't changed much! Somedays I just have to tell myself, "at least he's dressed." ha! Matching outfits & shoes are overrated;)

  2. Glad you have a blog! The pictures are soo stinking cute of Issac! That's so funny w/ the shoes and hats!
