Welcome to my life. Toddlers are a unique and relentless kind of wacked.
Your two-year-old asked for the blue cup… and you gave them the blue cup? You silly, naive fool. They didn’t actually want the blue cup. They wanted the green cup. No wait, the pink cup. Or no cup. Actually, their water bottle. Not the orange one, the pink one. Oh wait, they’ll drink the rest of your can of Perrier, thank you very much. Yah, that’s it. *brain explodes*
Toddlers are a wacky bunch, unburdened by common courtesy, emotional restraint, rational thinking and the like. They want what they want when they want it, whether it’s a mouth full of bathwater or a security toilet plunger. But they’re also the most hilarious little creatures in the world. Cue the memes! We’ve rounded up the most LOL and eerily accurate depictions of toddlerdom. Enjoy.
Also so. much. urine.

Not gonna lie, wasn’t the best weekend.
Shit, that’s a new one.

Why are they like this?!
Toddlers always bring the drama.

Don’t forget the stickers. So many stickers. Everywhere.
Is there a PhD for mess-making?
That last bit of havoc I wreaked was particularly exhausting.
Who knew so many fights would be about sticks?!
And from that day forth, they knew everything about everything.
Small but terrifying.
Tonight’s the night!
Shout out to all the parents planning to take their toddler to a restaurant tonight hoping this time will be different.

I’m a monster.
Oh, and a little wine if you’re so inclined.
Here comes the flood.
If I can’t see you there’s no way you can see me.
Not so fast.

They really do get in the way of your plans, don’t they.
