Speaking of the toddler stage…I know that pre-school kiddos are a handful. As a father who is about 20 years beyond those years there are things that I truly miss about parenting between when the girls were out of diapers and walking to when they were off to school. And, since I missed my “Memory Monday” post yesterday, let’s do a two-fer today. For the Top Five Tuesday and Memory Monday mash-up, here are the top five things I miss about parenting my two little toddlers:
- Bedtime stories.
- Cuddling (especially when they fell asleep in my arms).
- The screams of “Daddy!” and the sound of four feet running to greet me when I came through the door.
- The most hilarious things that came out of their mouths.
- Wrestling and rumbling on the floor, tickling, and the giggles, giggles, giggles.
