Today I saw the highs of toddler hood and I felt the lows. Summarized lows began with shrill, screeching words like, "But mommy I want that!" or "NO! NO! NO!" and crescendoed into even greater screaming and the added foot stomp. But it's the toddler "isms", the highlights, that make it all worth while. Shelby returned from a solo bathroom visit today and shared, "I said goodbye to the poopy, Mommy. And he said he'd come back again tomorrow." Then she picked up her purse, cocked her head and mumbled, "I'm just going for a little shop, now."
