HAIR TIES. Toddler are mess eaters (They are pretty much messy at everything they do). Keep these suckers in your purse, wallet or bra or wherever when you leave the house, trust me. You never know when you’ll need one.
De-tangler spray… for when they do get food in their hair and refuse to let you brush it out because it hurts.
Color wonder paper and markers because they insist on using markers but can’t be trusted with real ones to not destroy the walls.
Step stool. They want to almost everything themselves, but can’t reach anything. (Averie helped me with laundry the other day using her step stool. She even started the washer for me.)
Cocoa butter Vaseline works great for their lips. It has helped my toddler more than chap stick ever did. Works great for dried out noses as well.
Potty Seat. WOOO POTTY TRAINING. It’s a pain in the rear for me. She’s stubborn.
Glow in the dark stars.
I just recently took the tv out of Averie’s room and the glow in the dark stars have really helped her to adjust without the tv.
Leapfrog My pal’s.
Leapfrog My Pal Scout/Violet toy. My daughter loves this toy. It’s helped her learn her ABC’s, count, and learn songs. She will talk to this toy all night.
Baby doll (for a boy or girl). It teaches them how to care for babies and prepares them for when they are mommies and daddies.
Headache relief for when your toddler insists on being an A-hole all day.
Tablet for when they are absolutely impossible. Trust me, this comes in handy when you want a nap.
Wine. Enough said. Mom’s of toddlers will just get it.
