No one told me how much I would enjoy listening to her talk to herself while she's playing. Sometimes she'll be playing by herself, and I'll just stop what I'm doing to listen to her.
Until I had a child of my own, I never understood why it takes so long to get an infant out the door since the kid can't argue with you about it. I figured you'd just keep the diaper bag packed, and you could go pretty quickly. Ha!
People warned me there would be tantrums, meltdowns, and general toddler attitude, but I thought it was usually precipitated by the parent telling the kid to do/not do something that the kid didn't/did want to do. I was not prepared for these things to happen just because I told her the wrong way/order to do something. For example, one day a meltdown might occur because I want her to put on her shoes and then go to the bathroom, but what she wants is to put on her socks, then go to the bathroom, then put on her shoes, in that order, none other.
