Exploring Joyful Living
Let's live joyfully with the kids in our lives and not in spite of them. *cue nervous laughter* I love my 1.5 year old but let's be honest, sometimes we are counting down the minutes until that heavenly time known as NAP.
If you're in the stage of life where you find yourself entertaining a toddler, whether you are a parent, grandparent, babysitter, or friend, you have come to the right place! The goal of this blog is simply in the title. I want to help you live joyfully with your toddlers and not in spite of them. Whether this stage is your favorite or you're ready for them to be a little older, my hope is that there will be something enriching for everyone here. I happen to love little ones with all my heart but I also am a human being with my own needs. We need to remember that when we feel alone, we are not. Raising littles is a challenging, rewarding, and constant job. I need all the help and encouragement of my community as possible!
If you have ever looked longingly at adults in a restaurant seated and relaxed, you are not alone! But, sigh. I digress.
As a mom of a toddler and a former infant & toddler teacher, I also hope to sprinkle in helpful child development info that will not only give you a deeper understanding of frustrating moments like why she melts down every time you leave the park! It is my passion to love the little ones which includes having patience with their emotional short comings. It also means having fun and truly enjoying each other!
