You know you live with a toddler when...

For two mornings in a run, you wake up with "There's a worm at the bottom of the garden, and his name is Wiggly Woo." going through your head.

You find yourself sitting cross-legged on the floor in the Glasgow Science Centre singing Old Macdonald and you don't fear arrest. 

It's not uncommon to prepare a breakfast of lollypops on bagel. 

You find yourself offered a stone smoothie and are warned "it's a bit lumpy and tastes of stone".

Three-in-a-bed is a bad thing. 

You are familiar with the ways of Team Umizoomi and Bubble Guppies. 

Knowing your outfit is likely to be accessorised by dried bogies, you dress accordingly.

A soothing session of yoga is anything but. And what do you call a downward dog with a toddler hiding underneath, or a pigeon with added small boy on the back?

There isn't really any point in trying to find out why your glasses case is being filled with salt. 

"Me too," strikes a cold note of fear.

And so does: "Do it again."

Quiet, ordered and unsticky, however briefly, is a cause for celebration... only under your breath in case he hears.


  1. I'd never seen or heard that song - just hope I don't wake up with it in my head in the morning! Hate the dried bogey thing - but know it only too well!

  2. This is the stickiest song I have ever come across, so you are doomed now!

  3. You know what? I don't live with a toddler, but after reading this post, I am going to bed with Wiggly Woo on my brain, and fearing that it might still be there in the morning.

  4. I found myself nodding along to everything in this post! so, so true!

  5. Gah!!! I haven't had the wiggly woo song running through my head for some years now....suspect I will not be able to get rid of it today though! ;)
