Wisdom from a toddler?

It’s been awhile since I’ve been around toddlers, considering that my youngest son is almost 16!

Since moving to Florida I’ve been spending lots of quality time with my youngest niece and nephew {almost a year and 3} and my Sweet Pea {who will turn 3 September 1st} is staying with the hubby and I for the time being.  I’m knee deep in potty training, temper tantrums, Bubble Guppies and the like. And, I LOVE it.  Toddlers and preschoolers have the sweetest dispositions and even when exerting their will can’t help but be cheek smooching adorable.

Recently, Lariah {aka Sweet Pea} pulled me to the sliding glass door for the 3,491st time that day to “look at the lithards”.  I felt irritation creeping up my neck but it dissipated as I glanced down at her eager face.  She was genuinely excited to watch the lizards for the 3,491st time that day.  She watched and laughed and pointed as if it was a brand new experience.

In that moment, I wished I could bottle her inquisitive sweetness and drink it every now and then.  So, I’m going to make an effort to learn from the cute toddlers in my life and inhale the life lessons they can teach like I inhale the freshly washed hair smell during story time each evening.

And, when I remember to, I’ll share them with you here.

 

What wisdom can you glean from the littles in your life?
