22 Amazing Things I've Learned From a Two-year-old
1. Making wrong choices can still put you on your right path. What have you. You can always find your way home.
2. It is definitely okay to ask a million questions. You can't know everything.
3. It is also definitely okay to ask for help. Someone will always be there to help you. I promise.
4. Sometimes it's completely necessary to call out "Momma" -- every five seconds. And lather, rinse, repeat.
5. Random, spaztic dancing is and will always, be fun. *SEE BELOW!*
6. Naps are amazing, why NOT take one? zzzzzzzzzzzz
7. Sometimes you just realize there are foods you're not going to like. If you never liked broccoli as a toddler, you're probably not going to enjoy it now. Accept it, move on, and find something you do like.
8. Regular health check-ups are necessary.
9. Don't trust a 2-year old with a new box of crayons, markers lying around or Febreeze spray-- long story...
10. Getting older isn't the only thing that makes your sex life dwindle... *
11. Try to help when you can; yes, your hands are small & yes, you might not really make a difference, but you're there. And you're trying. And that really does help.
12. Find beauty and curiosity in all the small, simple and intricate things-- you will learn and grow from those things. And it is definitely okay to be curious.
13. Your parents have a huge impact on who you are today. And who you end up being tomorrow. Look to them for guidance; they love you more than you'll understand.
14. Some people won't know anything about you & hate you-- for hardly any reason. But that's life, those people don't matter. And those people suck. (Just ask my neighbor.) But wave Hello to them anyway.
15. We all develop differently.
16. There probably isn't anything a kiss can't fix. And tickles are really just psychological.
17. Too bad not everything works like a light switch. Those things are soo cool, though!
18. You don't always need to "take something for it" -- sometimes all you need is a steamy shower, some warm milk and an earlier bed time. There's always tomorrow.
19. There is no mountain too big. Nothing you can't climb. Failure shouldn't exist in your vocabulary.
20. It can be hard to let go, but easy to forget.
21. What I see, I will probably do, because it's in my mind of memory. We're all sponges and we take in so much more than we think.
22. You are special. You are unique. Your memories are yours. You're life is yours. If only you can see how small you are in such a massive, bittersweet world. You have the world looking you straight in the eyes.
