1.) You watch Disney Junior / Cbeebies and realise that you know every word to the theme tune and every characters name. You also often find yourself watching children's t.v programs without realising even after your child has gone to bed.
2.) Your once spotless living room will resemble a toy shop, and a messy one at that.
3.) Tantrums really do happen no matter how good your baby was. Tantrums also normally happen when you are in public so you end up getting embarrassed as everyone will stop and stare.
4.) They can become obsessed with random objects and will carry them around all day or try and take them to bed at night. The current obsession in our house is hairbrushes, shoes and pegs.
5.) The roast dinner you spent hours making as it is usually your toddlers favourite meal will end up on the floor.
6.) Mummy and Daddy's phone and the remote are the most sought after possessions ever.
7.) Going to do the weekly food shop or visiting the doctors on your own is classed as a treat and 'me' time.
8.) You find yourself hiding in the kitchen to eat a sneaky bar of chocolate / bag of crisps so you don't have to share.
9.) You have long since forgotten what a hot cup of coffee is like.
10.) 7 am is now classed as a lie in.
11.) You no longer have any handbags as you have been using a changing bag as your handbag for the last few years.
12.) You often end up going out with food stains or sticky hand prints on your clothing and you don't care.
13.) Your toddler is dressed better than you as you can't remember the last time you brought new clothes for yourself.
14.) You know never to leave anything like keys lying around as you will end up spending days looking for them and you will normally find them in the bottom of the bin or hidden in a shoe.
15.) When you clean your sofa you find odd socks, a half eaten biscuit and a toy under the cushions.
16.) You have little fingerprints on your walls and door's and if your lucky you might have some toddler art on your walls too.
17.) You dread unexpected visitors as your house will look like it has been burgled with toys and cushions thrown all over the place.
18.) You keep putting off potty training as you know things will get messy.
19.) By the time bedtime comes around you are exhausted and too tired to do anything and 10 pm is classed as a late night.
20. When they hug you and give you a kiss you realise just how lucky you are and your heart melts every time they do something new for the first time, unless it is pulling the wallpaper off as you really won't appreciate that.
If you are a parent to a toddler what would you would add to the list? I would love to know.
