You Know You Have a Toddler When...

1. You find yourself singing Barney songs to get yourself back to sleep in the middle of the night during one of the nightly "babies are sitting on my bladder" pee-breaks.
2. You instinctively turn the DVD player on in the car while driving ALONE, get almost all the way to your destination before realizing that you had the opportunity to listen to adult music instead of the Teletubbies or Elmo.
3. Your Christmas tree has Cheerios in it. (and you don't notice until someone else's child finds them and starts to eat them!)
4. The bathroom is no longer a sacred place. You are more often than not accompanied by a two foot tall person who wants to flush the toilet for you five thousand times.
5. You actually get a few minutes to take a shower but are reminded of the two foot tall toilet flusher when you open the shower curtain to find a random collection of items in the tub. Toys, snacks, sippy cups, shoes, etc.
6. Pretty much every boo-boo can be cured with a binkie, blankie, and snuggle.
7. In any given minute, chances are that you have said one of the following phrases. (probably more than one, and probably more than one time!): "no touch, sit down, do nice, no no, use your words, no stairs."
8. You have actually prayed for naptime to last longer than 1 hour.
9. You make up an errand just for an excuse to get out of the house and utilize the DVD player in the car. (does the Dunkin Donuts drive thru count as an errand?)
10. You have strapped your child into the high chair, put food on the tray, pulled the high chair into the living room, and gone to finish the laundry while the child has no other choice but to eat peacefully and watch Elmo on TV!
