Toddlers & Teenagers.They are more alike than you think.......

Everyone loves lists–but they can be annoying. Sometimes they are there because of writer’s block. Sometimes they are there for fun. Mine is so you will have a great start to your weekend –LOL

So here are MY  TOP REASONS Toddlers and Teenagers are so alike:

They are hard to get to sleep at night–AGAIN

Toddlers have tantrums because they don’t get something they want. Teenagers have tantrums because they don’t want what they get……..

Toddlers love to put things in their mouths. You are trying to constantly keep things out of Teenager’s mouths, like cigarettes, beer bottles, shot glasses, weed, and body parts

Toddlers have lovies like blankets, pacifiers, stuffed toys. Teenagers still need them.  Enough said-so you’d better not tease them or I’ll come and kick your ass.

Toddlers love preschool. Teenagers are looking for ways to skip school.

Toddlers have cute battery operated cars. Teenagers want cars with 6 liter engines

Toddlers love to dress in cute clothes. Teenagers don’t want to look ‘cute’. They will dress in anything anti-cute like torn t shirts, short shorts with the pockets hanging out, FM pumps for the girls and slippers for the guys…

Toddlers love to snuggle with their mommas. Teenagers make you stop 100 yards away from the high school entrance to drop them off.

Toddlers eat with their hands.  Teenagers eat. And eat. And eat….especially if they are boys.

You have to install wacky locks on all your cabinets and doors to keep Toddlers safe.  You have to re-install these locks when they turn 13, as well as an extra one for the liquor cabinet.

Toddlers love to run around naked.  Teenagers like to watch other people run around naked on their computers…………

Toddlers love baths.  Teenagers have to be threatened to take showers, or pay half the water bill if they are girls.

Toddlers go to time out.  Teenagers go to jail.

Toddlers say embarrassing things in public when they are with you, and it’s hilarious.  Teenagers pray on a daily basis that YOU will not embarrass them in public.

But we will, it’s MY turn now……….And it’s gonna be hilarious!
