Blogmas - 07.12.14

Hi and happy 7th December! How is your December going so far? I think ours is going well and so far so good with blogging everyday!!! My husband goes away to America next week for the entire week so we will see how things go when me and Baba are left to our own devices! 

Mr. Bee went away only last month for an entire week, which doesn't sound that long, but when you have a toddler, lots of things can change. And it made me giggle, because when he came home, Baba had new things that she was doing and also new ways of doing things. My husband was a bit baffled by her new 'rules'. And I thought in a weird way it was kind of like the film Fight Club.  Obviously this is minus any fighting and minus Brad Pitt.  But it feels like Baba has these list of rules which you need to know or its game over.  And my husband literally had no idea of the new rules in place. 

Here's what I imagine Baba saying to her Daddy. 

"So you are interested in joining the Toddler Fight Club eh?
Well, let me tell you, this is no walk in the park Daddy. 



Rule one of toddler fight club.  There are many, many rules.

Rule two of toddler fight club.  These rules change daily, sometimes hourly and different people have different rules, you best be on the ball buster. 

Rule three of toddler fight Club.  I need my two rubber ducks, my penguin, a stone and a blanket all in a particular order before I go to sleep.  Put them in the wrong place at your peril.



Rule four of toddler fight Club.  The day you learn the rules is the day I change them. 

Rule five of toddler fight club.  I can sense your fear and that you don't know the rules. 

Rule six of toddler fight club.  The dog is not a dog.  He is a miniature pony and he will transport me around the house. 

Rule seven of toddler fight club.  I will shout 'flaggy' at random intervals because it is funny.  And no, I don't know what it means either. 

Rule eight of toddler fight club.  I need the Highway Rat read to me before I drift off to sleep. Fact. 

Rule nine of toddler fight club.  I don't need you to ask me if I need the toilet.  I can now tell when I need to go.  Well, the majority of the time that is. 

My tenth and final rule of toddler fight club is that when you return from your next trip Daddy, I will have re-written all the above rules!!"

Is it just my toddler that has to have things just so and who changes so so much in a week? 

Thanks for stopping by and I will see you in the morning for a very special blog post!

  14. Love this and so true. Brillaint way to sum it up when you are left solo with the babas. I recently was with mine two tots for 10 days alone while Mr P was in America and it was fight club for sure. Rules come and go and my two are so particular for certain things and it makes me laugh when you said about all the things in your little ones bed. Thats my two for sure. You are doing fab on your blogmas keep it up. Thanks for linking up to Share With Me Happy Holidays! #sharewithme
