A couple of weeks ago I posted a blog talking about an idea I had: wouldn't it be funny if our children could blog - giving their point of view on our parenting blogs. Those of us that have parenting blogs write about the antics of our children all the time, and it made me think what it would be like if they could post their own opinion. Actually letting them post on our blog may not be the best idea, especially if they are actually a baby, but I thought it would be fun to write a post as if my child had written it. It has been fun to imagine the voice of my child and the things that he would say. Of course you could have your child write a little something if they are old enough. This will also be a great opportunity to promote each others blogs.
So let's have a bit of fun, the rules of the linky are very simple:
Toddlerdom is frustrating for us both by Bobby
It has become apparent that things have been a little tiring lately. I have officially hit that time of toddlerdom, as I finally got the confidence to walk on my own a couple of weeks ago. Yes it has been tiring for you as you have been chasing me about, but it has been tiring for me too. All of this running about is physically tiring, plus I am teething and not entirely happy about what you feed me half of the time. I have been getting frustrated and you have been getting frustrated. So I thought that now would be a chance to clear the air. You complain on your blog about my pulling your trousers down while I'm trying to stand up (why not wear a belt?) and pouring Vimto on your face while you napped on the couch (you were asleep on the job!) So I feel that it is time for me to return the favour and deliver my side of the story.
It has to be said mother, that there is a perfectly good explanation for everything I do. That I do mind when you leave the room when I stare you in the face as I have a poo. It helps my concentration and you leaving breaks it. What can I say? Your face helps. Yes, I like to give you a bit of a slap when you lie down on the couch. But only because I want to play while you are busy lying around. And yes, I may have put my hand up your pyjama shorts and grabbed your bum that time, but that thing was hanging out and I couldn't let that stand. Not to mention the time I sank my teeth into your big toe (again, you were lying down.) Frankly, I didn't realise that it was attached to you and I was teething quite badly at the time. That squishy morsel was just too tempting. So, I apologise for the times that I have frustrated you, as you have apologised for the times when I have been frustrated, when you have taken a while to understand what I want. Toddlerdom is a challenge for both parties, but we will get through it. Just make sure that you provide me plenty of squishy teething items, attention and time to play and we will be fine. Bobby X
