No matter where you live, if you have a boy or a girl, or if this is your first child or your fifth, there are just certain universal truths about toddlers. They're a rare breed of cuteness and catastrophe. They make us laugh, and they drive us crazy. They challenge and teach us every single day.
The lesson I can relate to most? The one I rediscover every evening around 6:00 p.m., right before my husband gets home. Toddlers are exhausting. EXHAUSTING! And anyone who says any differently is just too tired to remember how tired they are.
What toddler truth would you add to this list?
