Is it teething time for your little one?

Toddlers have a great life, don't they? Napping in the afternoon, not having to go to work, not wearing shoes when out, playing all day long and being fed by someone else is definitely a great way to spend your day.


However, while we may day-dream about spending our days the way our little one does, there are definitely some things that only a three-year-old can get away with. 


Screaming in the middle of a shop

Could you imagine the stares if you stood in the middle of an aisle screaming because you couldn’t get the sweets that you really, really wanted.   People would probably run in fear.


Falling asleep in a shopping trolley

We wouldn’t fit in the seat for a start and if we did manage to get our leg in we'd never be able to get out again. 


Wearing a nappy and nothing else

We’d need to get a pretty big nappy to fit on to us, in the first place. Oh the stares we’d get.


Telling the whole world you just did a poo

Nobody wants to know all about your bowel movements. Not cool. Not cool.


Spitting food out

The thing is, if you spit it out you need to clean it up yourself. And it wouldn't be particularly pleasant. 


Jumping from couch to couch

Sounds and looks like a lot of fun, but we’d no doubt break the arm upon landing.


Refusing to eat your dinner

Keeping your mouth tightly shut so the spoon won’t fit in would look a little strange if you were feeding yourself.


Putting food on your head

You have a lot more hair to clean food out of.


Calling a cut a boo boo

Only acceptable when you are saying it to your toddler - not when you are talking to an adult.


Dressing like a superhero on your own

Unless you are with your toddler, going to the shop dressed as superman or batman might sound like fun but trust us, only a child can get away with it.
