Why We Love Toddlers

Why We Love Toddlers

No one can make us laugh like our toddlers. We love the way they mispronounce new words, the endless snacks, and all of the creative ways they delay bedtime. These stories from parents and grandparents are testament to the extraordinary and hilarious minds of toddlers. We can’t get enough! 

“My toddler cracks me up! She cheers me on for so many little things. “That was a good bite, mama!” Sometimes, she claps and says, “Wow! You’re a big girl!” after I flush the toilet. And when I’m cleaning, she sings me the clean up song! “Clean up, clean up everybody everywhere, clean up clean up everybody do their share!” It’s like having my own personal cheerleader follow me around!”-Emily

“Thanks to my son, my wife and I have come up with a lot of new and creative ways to express our emotions. I learned the hard way that my toddler will repeat everything he hears, especially the words we really don’t want him to repeat.” 😅

-Scott 

“Seeing my granddaughter the past few years grow through so many changes has been nothing short of amazing. It’s her curiosity and wonder about the world around her that touches me most. Her love and concern for animals stands out as she takes special care of a 125 lb dog. He’s her best buddy.” -Susan

“My toddler loves to kiss my belly and talk to his growing, baby sister. He’s such a good big brother!” -Katie

“Our little girl is so creative. This is how she sings Old McDonald Had a Farm: “Old McDonald had a farm, e-i-e-i-o, and on his farm he had some FRENCH FRIES…with a yum yum here, a yum yum there…You should hear her Wheels On The Bus remix!”-Drew 

“Our son is always so happy to see me. When I come home from work he screams and runs towards me for a big hug like he hasn’t seen me in years. It never gets old!” -Caroline 

“After my grandkids went home the other day, I found a wooden spoon, bowls, and toothpaste under the bed, the couch pillows under the kitchen table, building blocks in my rain boots, and goldfish snacks in the bathtub. What will they think of next?!”-Lydia 

“One of the many things that I love about my granddaughter is that we’re learning to love and respect all of the little outdoor critters that come along with summer. We have learned to touch them, hold them, and even talk to them. Hearing her say as she gently reaches out to touch them “it’s ok, I won’t hurt you!” melts my heart and reassures me that she will always spread kindness in this world.” -Lisa

“Last night my toddler needed a snack before bed, then juice, then wanted to brush her teeth twice, wash her hands, change into different pajamas, read a zillion good night stories, and then look at the moon. No one has more on her to-do list than  my daughter before bed!” -Paul 

We have one more item to add to your (and your toddler’s!😂) to-do list: günamüna's Mindful Meditation session every Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. EST on Instagram and 1:30 p.m. EST on Facebook. Jackie Frederick-Berner will guide us in ten minutes of meditation to promote self-care, wellness, and mental health. Your silly toddler is welcome to join us as well! 

Sweet Dreams!

love, your günamüna team
