Parents of Toddlers: Here's What You'll Eventually Miss

It may be hard to imagine missing these years, but you will!

Parenting_toddler_years

When my boys were one and three, people would often smile at me and say, "Oh, I miss those years." I'd remember looking up through exhausted eyes and cursing them under my breath, as they lazily sat on the their chair sipping wine while their older children ran around unsupervised.

Kid Fave Food: Crispy Cheddar Cauli-Tots

If they make it, they will eat it. If you make it, they might scrunch up their noses. It's one of the tenets of parenting.

The study showed us that when children had a regular bedtime routine of at least 3 times a week, the child went to bed earlier, fell asleep easier and faster, had up to one more hour of sleep throughout the night with less frequent night wakings.

A consistent bedtime routine meant better sleep for all.
