10 Crazy things I’ve said to my toddler

I have a one-year-old daughter named Aspen. She is sweet and
wonderful, but the funny thing about a toddler is they tend to do some really
odd things. Sometimes I feel like she’s a car without a steering wheel and a brick
on the gas pedal. I have to always keep one eye on the little stinker, and I’ve
ended up saying some really crazy things while caring for her. Here are a few
examples.
“Get your lollipop off of the toilet!”
“Stop laughing at me while I’m naked.”
“Ugh! Get the plunger out of your mouth.”
“Pooping in the tub isn’t cool, okay? Not cool.”
“Stop biting me! You’re like an animal!”
“Where are your socks? WHERE ARE YOUR SOCKS!!!???”
“If you don’t stop sticking your hand in your poop, I swear
I’ll abandon you in the woods.”
“Listen. I love you. But pulling my pants down at Wal-Mart
isn’t okay.”
“Sit down! You are going to fall out of the cart and bust
your head open and everyone will blame me!”

“You are really lucky that I like you. Now take a nap.”
