Ever since the “baby” started walking and toddling around, I’ve been snapping pictures of all the strange items I find around the house that are living proof that a toddler indeed lurks around these parts. After several months, I finally collected the good ones and share them here with you for entertainment on this cold and snowy day. Do you live with a toddler or other small creatures? Feel free to share your own below or link-up on your own blog!
What about YOU? How do you know a toddler/small child lives in YOUR house?

Very clever Luke! Very clever.
Yes, he’s a clever little fella’
Ha ha! That Luke is too cute, he really is. I love all the pictures you collected, and the last one got a LOL, from me!

Yay for a LOL from Jackie! My life is complete now. 😉 He is a cute one, good thing he’s got that!
oh yes, the one of the toddler reaching into the utensil drawer is definitely relatable! luckily he can’t open the refrigerator door because it has a pretty good seal on it, but he does ocasionally get to pushing the lever for the water dispenser and then gets all upset when he has cold water all down his front. another regular occurence is cameron the sous chef. it is HIS JOB to open and close the microwave and to push the buttons. he also stirs the pots and is the official smeller of all spices. lately his chores have increased to include feeding the dogs. he passes out the bowls and then stands over the dogs with hands on hips repeating “good job sweet beans!” until all the food is eaten. “all done!” is enthusiastically proclaimed and he picks up the bowls and puts them away and shuts the pantry door. it’s very important. 🙂
oh yes! I forgot about the water dispenser. Luke just started this last week but I didn’t take a picture. Luckily we can lock the dispenser but it’s a hassle when James wants to use it b/c he can’t unlock it easily. I love the idea of having a little “sous chef” around – you’re living a life of luxury Michelle! 😉 Does he ever try and eat the dog food while helping?
thankfully he has only tried to eat the dog food once and i’m still not sure if he actually got it down or not because i was too busy freaking out. but i think he is beyond that now, if he accidentally spills any of the dog food while passing out the bowls he gives a big “uh oh! oh no!” and meticulously picks up each piece one at a time to replace it in the bowl.
you certainly can’t be in a hurry to get anything done, but it is so much fun to have him as my little helper! just last night he was cleaning the sliding glass door, at least until he realized how much more fun it would be to operate the spray bottle, then he sort of went on strike. but we got some of the smudges off at least! 🙂
I guess the dog food wouldn’t be so bad, better than a toy. Yesterday Luke put a handful of nickel-sized bingo discs in his mouth and gave me a heart attack. Luckily I scooped them out before he attempted swallowing.
Yeah everyone here likes the squirting part better than the actual cleaning. On warmer days I’ll send them out with a squirt bottle (of water) and let em at the outside windows. It doesn’t look great afterwards but oh well, it keeps them entertained while I stare at the wall for a few minutes.
HAHA. I love this!

Sarah! It’s good to “see” you again.
Very cute. This is actually one of my favorite posts that you’ve done. I think you’ll treasure these pictures in a few years. Especially that little pudgy hand reaching for the apple.
