In just a few days, my darling niece, Duckling, will be turning two. While some may ask, "Who cares?" I would like to explain that I am a primary caregiver. I care. And so do the people that have little ones. They know that when it comes to "the terrible twos" it can begin early, and not end for many years! There are actually people in this world that don't want to hear about other people's children. Can you believe it?! So, to keep the peace in the world, I will be starting this thread for all that have toddlers, and wish to vent or share stories and tips. Please keep in mind that this is a social forum. We need to protect our little ones. So, please be careful with what you post. Now, I have some rules. Ready? 1) Respect the opinions of others! There is no right way. it is whatever works for you! 2) I am the Big Momma! If I ask you to take something down, please do. I will have a good reason for it! 3) If a moderator is needed, flag the post. Otherwise, you have children, don't act like one. PM the person or me, and get it talked out! BYC says there is to be no arguing in the forums. I should not have to remind you of that. 4) I want our children safe. Do not share the photos or personal stories on other social media. 5) There is no five. I just like the number. This thread is not "just" for toddler parents. If you have a story or advice, go for it! If your 17-year-old doesn't pick up his toys, tell us! If you have a special blessing that will always have the spirit of a toddler, post here. "A parent's job is to do what they can to raise their child right, and mess up anyway." CLEANING TIPS Magic Erasers for cleaning most surfaces. Socks on hands for dusting. A small stick vac or a shop vac. Lots of choices for vacuums. A kid size broom, whisk broom, or the bottom of a regular broom (mine has hand holds for Duckling). Duckling does well with mopping with a sponge mop. You can break a handle, and tape it up well with duct tape too.
