The Toddler Walk

If  you have a toddler you are going to know exactly what I am talking about. It's the walk they do when you are in a hurry and have to be at a meeting or you need to be somewhere at a certain time.

You know the one where they are walking three feet behind you, looking at the sky, asking why the drain on the street is where it's at, wondering why you didn't bring their fruit snacks and then asking you for the 3,000th time why they have to go to school. Don't forget that they are also trying to carry 100 things because well they need to take everything from their playroom with them. You spend most of the time hearding them and picking up the 100 things they are dropping on the ground because they don't have a care in the world. At this point you have now broken into a sweat and are pretty close to having a heart attack because at this point you are going to be late. You then flash back to a time where this wasn't your life and for an instant you wish you were back there but then realize you love your life and go back to hearding the toddler into school.

What should have taken an easy three minutes has just taken about 30.

That was our morning too! It got to the point that I just had to pick her up, get her in the car and leave the stuff on the driveway to get later. Fun times!
