Confession time: There is still a big part of me that has no idea what to do with a 14 month-old toddler running around the house. Or a 14 month-old in public. Or a 14 month-old ... at all. Cue to yesterday, in Gap, when both Maile and I had a meltdown after she threw her lemonade all over the floor of the store. The lemonade that I bribed her with mere minutes before. Yep. Mom of the Year -- that's me! Also, she never has refined sugar; I paid for that lemonade later. ::nudge nudge::
But even after her very first public tantrum (you better believe that's going in her baby book) it's been a lot of fun to think of her as a mini-me (or mini-Tim, as it is). Above are a few things I've come across that make me smile. Sources below.
