In the Spotlight: Toddler's First Person Blog Tells All
Toddlers can be a mystery. They'll look at you, sometimes stare and you know they're in deep thought, but what are they thinking?
One "tell all" blog may finally crack that mystery wide open!
Although the blog isn't written by the tyke, it's gone viral with good reason. It is simply hilarious.
The latest entry from Sunday is quite representative of the average entry:
"Dear Grandma and Grandpa,
I haven't seen you in about a week, which is fine. Maybe you have something better to do than watch your sweet baby bloom into life.
This past week was difficult. I just wanted to update you on what has been going on here and happening to me. Please see below.
1. Numerous unexplained time-outs.
2. Lentils for lunch. If you don't know what lentils are, they're rehydrated squirrel droppings or acorn shavings, I'm not sure.
3. She spoke to me rudely at approximately 4:45PM on Thursday.
4. No park on Friday at all.
5. Pants daily.
6. VERY few desserts. None of them chocolate related.
7. Two more of my puzzles were thrown away.
8. I found three of my DRAWINGS in the kitchen trash.
9. We're out of red popsicles.
10. Asked daddy for an ice-cream sandwich at 2 am on Saturday. He laughed at me.
11. Mommy succumbed to peer pressure and ran away with friends. She returned hours later as if nothing had happened.
12. Six boo boos, one Band-Aid.
13. Stranger came into the house and accused me of toilet related crimes (I've never seen those washcloths in my life).
14. A big dog bit me in the face. Okay that didn't happen, but what if it did? Think of how terrible you would feel.
Can you guys come by and check on me? I'm very, very hungry. Please bring more chocolate chip cookies. Maybe we can go to the park or the drive through. I'm not picky.
Awaiting your reply,
As funny as these are, some of these entries are probably exactly what was goes on in our little ones' minds! They could honestly wonder why they can't have a treat in the middle of the night.
They're curious why mom leaves and comes back "like nothing happened."
New foods are confusing and often disliked, and let's face it, at very young ages, time-outs really don't mean much!
The blog can be found here if you're wanting to read more!
Remember, your own little one might be writing his or her own blog, so be careful what you do and say! You never know what might pop up online!
