Becoming a parent is life changing. It brings about new experiences, challenges and skills.

Being a parent with toddlers/a toddler is interesting, amazing, fulfilling, funny and tough, all at the same time. 

Here is a list of things our team have experienced and put together as parents. We think every parent can relate to the below in some way, shape or form. 


  1. You can’t take your eyes off them for a second.
  2. You need to lock all the presses because they think they are Christopher Columbus or Dora the explorer.
  3. You can’t eat your own food without having to share it with them.
  4. You will never stay clean for more than 20 minutes.
  5. You spend your whole day picking stuff up and they spend their hole day throwing things down.
  6. They always sleep with their feet in your face.
  7. If they have a bad night, they just sleep the next day, but you can’t.
  8. They will try to eat with every part of their face, expect their mouth.
  9. Needing to go to the toilet when your baby is asleep on you.
  10. You will never stay clean for more than 20 minutes.
  11. The toy aisle in the supermarket is the most dangerous place in the world.
  12. Silence is never a good sign when your kids are awake.
  13. Bedtime is a battle and they always want another story.
  14. You have to watch what you say around time, they can hang you out to dry.
  15. The words “again” and “why” are your worst nightmare.
