2 peas in a bath


 
“The days are long but the years are short.”
 Gretchen Rubin

Parents of toddlers will also attest that some days are particularly long and others, incredibly short. Regardless of which way our day turns out, we are very grateful for their bedtime of 6:30pm.
 
Most evenings, Charlotte and Daniel will go into their beds, snuggle into their favourite stuffed animals and slowly drift themselves to sleep as we switch off the lights and leave their room. Some evenings, they will do whatever it takes to stretch the time out just a little bit more by telling us " Not YET!"
 
At 29 months, they are so much fun to be around. They are curious, cheeky, talkative and did I mention cheeky? The other thing that they are doing lots of with each other...wait for this....ROARING! Yes, they roar when they have disagreements. Funny that.
 
They also have annoying traits that make us tear our hair out and send our blood pressures up the roof! Still, we wouldn't trade them for anything else ... perhaps, less whinging would be very nice!
 
The life of toddlers. How I wish I can remember mine at this age. I wonder what my parents will say?
