Hey There.

 The strategies that teachers use in the classroom are valuable outside the classroom. You know this. It's time everyone had access to the things teachers know. Now you do. Welcome!

As Recorded by the Fly on Our Wall and January 2013's Toddle Spots


While running to the bathroom: Oh, no you don't! Don't you start pushing till your bottom's on the toilet!

2am So.....Do the sheets need to be changed again or can we just throw a towel over it?

Over due on grocery shopping: Because broccoli is never an appropriate side dish on burrito night! Never the twain shall meet.

Question better left unasked: What did I just slip in?

Choices: Either, mommy will change your diaper now, or mommy will change your diaper now and then you will go to time out.

On the appropriate placement of zurberts: Ewww, you don't do that on someone's face! Bellies only please.

Riley wearing a button-up shirt: Ok, I am going to work now. Love you Hun!

After the long pause before someone volunteers to change another diaper: Am I really the only one who heard that?

Assuming the best when seeing baby Tyler in a headlock: No hugging!

Tyler being dragged by one arm on his belly: He's smiling mommy!

Midnight prayer: Dear sweet, merciful God, Please shut the mouths of those who conspire to keep my pillow and I apart.

Coming out of the bathroom: Good job, mommy! You did it! You get a treat.

After spitting blueberry cobbler on the floor: I can't (w)ike it!

Riley attempting to brush Tyler's new tooth: No sharing!

Riley prying the train out of Tyler's fingers: Share!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star: a Dino in the sky.

Being caught sneaking ice cream: Don't judge me. You don't judge me.

At the excitement of making his own pizza: I am going to eat it on my tongue!

7am I wub you. I give you tisses and tisses.

What did the fly on your wall hear?
