You Might be a Parent to Littles If...

Thursday, March 15, 2018

Thursday! We're almost there. 

It has been kind of rough around here for the past week, first with Carrie being sick and then yesterday Haddie seemed to come down with something cold-like. We made a quick trip to Target this morning, though, and I swear that reset my mind/outlook. Sometimes it just takes getting out in the world, listening to some country music on the radio, and taking in the blue sky (even if it's still way too cold out) to turn things around. My mom visited yesterday (hi Mom!) so that was a treat and major help, and tomorrow C is off to "donuts with dad" at school -- she's so excited and I can't wait to hear all about it. :)

Anyway, today is for the parents who might be reading this. Just a little something that I put together that might make you laugh and nod your head. What would you add to this list? Enjoy your day! XO 

You Might Be a Parent to Littles If…

You discover random pictures on your phone taken from the vantage point of someone who is about three feet tall.

You have a favorite Sophia the First episode.

Your Saturday night dinner reservations are at 4:30pm. Somewhere loud. Where they sell grilled cheese.

To your horror, you find yourself saying things like “holy canoli!” and “yikes bikes!” -- even around other adults.

That Justin Bieber song “What Do You Mean?” takes on a whole new meaning (What do you mean, when you nod your head yes but you want to say no… what do you mean?).

You clean everything (and I do mean everything) with baby wipes.

Coffee is life.

You have a fantasy that involves lying in a quiet room by yourself, reading a magazine, and eating bread.

You find yourself “dating” other parents of littles.

The last movie you saw in the theater was animated.

You have a hiding spot where you eat all your snacks.

You rock back and forth when you’re standing in line, even when you’re kid-free.

You count down the minutes until bedtime and then spend an hour looking at pictures of your kid.

You’ve rediscovered childhood favorites like fruit snacks and Goldfish – and damn, Teddy Grahams are good!

You’ve opened all the windows and sang nursery rhymes at the top of your lungs while driving home so your child wouldn’t fall asleep and skip nap.

You would never tell anyone else this, but… your kid is definitely the cutest. :)

You also might be a parent to littles if you've gotten this look before...


  1. Haha YES to all of these! I was searching through Daniel Tiger episodes (all 8 freaking seasons) trying to find the one I wanted yesterday and thought "what is my life right now?!" lol. I also got a package of crackers for myself to snack on at the grocery store, popped them open in the car, and my REAR FACING child said "chip please mama?" There goes snacking in the car!! Have a great weekend, girl!

    1. Hahaha... I have SO been there searching for my favorite episode! That's hilarious! And I get excited when there's a new episode. What have our lives come to? ;) Have a great weekend! XO
