A Tale of Two Toddlers

On Sunday we went to church and left Moo in the toddlers’ room during the service.

When we picked her up, the volunteers in the room told us that another little girl had gotten hurt and M was first on the scene to pat her head and give her a hug.

My mommy-heart LITERALLY burst.

Later that afternoon I held M and told her that my absolute favorite feedback regarding her isn’t about intellect or beauty- it’s about her generosity and kindness. I think it might’ve gone over her 16 month old head, but whatever.

Then, that evening during a bedtime tantrum, Moo smacked my face repeated and slashed me with her Wolverine-like nails.

So all of that to say, you win some and you lose some.


Hope everyone had a very Happy Easter / weekend and my tale of Dr. Jekly and Mr(s). Moo reminds you that there are great and terrible moments in every 24 hour period. Bank the good ones and keep Neosporin on hand for the bad.

  1. Better this way round than scratching the other toddler and patting you on the head, right? 😆

    Oh my gosh this is too funny! She is such a sweet and loving kid, just like her mama! But all toddlers have their moments. M will not let me cut her nails so they get soooo long and they scratch me sooo badly. She also has similar mood swings these days!

      Hahaha- I hope she has a little less sass than her mom… although she doesn’t seem to. LOL
      She definitely has her moments. M doesn’t mind nail clippings but she hates having stuff in her hair so she always looks like a mop-top. Fortunately right now she’s ok with bows! Yay! Haha! No rubber bands, though!
