image 10 Things You Don’t Want To Find In Your Toddler’s Hands

Don’t you just love those special moments when a child walks up to you and in the blink of an eye you realize they have the capability to completely rock your world based onFullSizeRender (3) what is in their hand? I certainly have “loved” those moments.

Here are ten things you hope to never find in your toddler’s hands (but probably have):

  1. A half-eaten, fully-melted Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. #itmeltsinyourhand
  2. Scissors. No, just no. Stop trying to cut the Otter Pop by yourself.
  3. Your caseless iPhone. Unless it’s got an Otterbox on it, keep your filthy and highly uncoordinated HANDS OFF.
  4. Another kid’s pacifier. And we wonder how Hand, Foot and Mouth disease gets passed around at this age?
  5. The dog’s food. How many times do I have to tell you that it’s not a snack!
  6. The dog’s shit. Seriously? Of all the toys, paints and water spraying thing-a-ma-doohickies we own, this is what you chose to play with in the yard?
  7. Anything from my desk drawer, including but not limited to: sharpies, white-out, the stapler, the letter opener or other sharp or sticky objects. Stamps are not stickers!
  8. Your car keys….near the toilet. Perhaps a sign would help: This toilet is only paper friendly. Kids and keys do not mix.
  9. Matches. No one likes a pyro.
  10. Your favorite bag of freshly ground coffee hot off the grinder, open and primed for spilling all over the kitchen floor. PSA to toddlers everywhere: Do not EVER touch mommy’s coffee. You will not like the person she becomes.
