Friday Flashbacks

When my oldest daughter was 2, she would go in her room for a nap and would talk, sing and cry, then it was completely silent. So I would go in and check on her and could not find her anywhere! Her room was tiny too, not many places she could have gone. We kept all her dolls and stuffed animals in her closet and there she would be snuggled right in the middle of them, all I could see was her face sticking out! She was a doll!

1st Tuesday's Toots!

Posted by ToddleToots! at 4:10 PM 1 comments
Ta-Duh!  It's Tuesday and this is my first TOOT!  (Well, ok, if I'm honest there have been others but let's just keep that private, shall we?) =)

I had plans to get this out earlier today, but LIFE happened so better late than not at all.  Also, this is going to be a test to see if my feed is working properly, but I thought I'd go ahead and take the opportunity to share a cute little story about my daughter:

She is almost 1 1/2 (or 17mo to be precise) and saying new things all the time. It's so much fun, I LOVE being her mom!  Not too long ago she was in her very girly (pink explosion) excer-saucer just hanging out like we do in the mornings.  I was reading or checking email or something studious I'm sure rather than just sitting there in my pj's wishing I was still in bed and I hear her whispering.  I look over at her out of the corner of my not wanting to disrupt what I am sure to be a very cute moment.  She has both of her hands cupping either side of this flower attachment that has a 2" mirror on one side of it looking at herself from approximately 3" away (or as close as she could get and still see her reflection;).  First, she giggled then she   repeatedly whispered "Hi" several times before she looked up and noticed I was watching her then smiled real big.  It was super CUTE!

Since then, I have observed her doing the same thing in windows and then again this morning in my room in front of one of those tall wardrobe mirrors placed against the wall.  I had leaned a couple of my pillows in front of it, which she thought were conveniently placed there for her to lean on while staring at her reflection in the mirror.  Saying "Hi... hi baby" and then following it up with her rendition of "Row Your Boat".   I'd like to say I don't know where she gets this vanity, but I'm afraid I do... her father, of course ;) (I often catch him doing the same thing - usually something other than "Row Your Boat", but not always ;) -just teasing Big Toots =)

Welcome To ToddleToots!

Welcome to ToddleToots!

ToddleToots is an online community where you can "Toot" about your toddlers and young children.  The goal of this site is to share and to laugh.  A place for Moms (and even Dads) to talk about your little ones.  Kids say and do funny things; sometimes when it is most unexpected and maybe even a little embarrassing.  If we are going to be honest, our responses to our kids might even be a bit... out there just to pacify their incessant questions that start with, "Why, mama, why?" or "How come Mama?" or "What's that? What's that?" while pointing at everything and nothing at the same time.

We want to hear from you and laugh with you (or maybe even at you -just kididng).  Please check out the different pages: What Is A Toot? and Submissions to find out more about what we are doing, why, and how you can participate.  That's what we want... YOU to participate.

There will be some fun opportunities for you to share including some of the following which are explained more on the Submissions page along with our guidelines:

Tuesday's Toots 'n' Hoots
Thoughts for Thursdays
Friday Flashbacks
Fill In the Blank Fun
Articles of Special Interests

And hopefully more inspired by YOU!

We can't wait to hear from you!
