I want to share one of my favorite quotes with you. When I read it, I laughed so hard! It’s so funny because it’s so true!
When kids hit one year old, it’s like hanging out with a miniature drunk. You have to hold onto them. They bump into things. They laugh and cry. They urinate. They vomit.~~Johnny Depp
I would have never thought of it like that, but there it is. The big difference (okay there are a LOT of differences) between a drunk and a toddler is the toddler can pull it off and be adorable. A drunk person is not so adorable.
Now, don’t think me a terrible parent, but my son got a bit drunk when he was three. I was drinking a wine cooler when the phone rang. I thought I had it out of reach, but I was wrong. I grabbed the phone and talked for just a minute. When I hung up I discovered my drink was missing! My son was just finishing it off as I ran to the living room. He staggered and was very giggly. I was so scared! I sat by his bed half that night just watching him sleep and breathe.
