10 Reasons Why Toddlers Are Bad Ass

1.     Toddlers constantly remind us to slow down to take delight in the simple pleasures life has to offer.  Like stopping to smell the flowers, or the overwhelming excitement of an ant crossing the sidewalk.
2.     Their smile can make even the grumpiest old fart smile.
3.     They crap their pants while flirting, and somehow it does not salt their game.
4.     They will wear anything you put on them, and Rock. It. out!

Rockin' those pants like a runway pro!
5.     While their kisses are super wet and slobbery, they are the greatest.
6.     Watching them grow and learn is such an amazing thing… even when they learn how to crawl out of their bed and into yours and slap your face until you wake up.
7.     As they learn to talk, hearing their voice develop is like listening to angels sing. Even when they somehow can only get an “f” sound to come out when trying to say the word duck… in Sunday school…
8.     They sleep for a total of 14 hours in a 24-hour period, and that is considered great! I suppose that is the amount of rest necessary to somehow in the 10 hours that they are awake, do more damage than a bull in a china shop.
9.     There is never a dull moment when a Toddler is around. They are cheeky and sneaky and that is awesome.  Watching them try to get away with naughtiness and not laugh is an art. (One I have yet to master.)
10. They are so dang CUTE!!!

They really are just the most bad ass little things ever. I even love when Ollie does something wrong or get a hold of something he shouldn't and comes to tell me about it. LOVE!

They're also badass because they can find anything exciting, even stupid stuff like a hole in the wall. And they wake up happy every single morning. I don't get it, but I love it.
