Top Ten Reasons Having a Toddler Is Like Being At A Frat Party...

Now, anyone who's dealt with little children (as in below the age of 3) knows that they are no joke. While they can be adorable at times, they can also be crazy, wild, out of control, and completely reckless. In fact, it's just like being at frat party.

Tricia, a friend of mine who is currently dealing with the whirlwind of a toddler, has found a list written by someone who is also overwhelmed, made that connection, and decided to laugh about it. Here now are the top ten reasons having a toddler is like being at a frat party:

#10. There are half-full, brightly-colored plastic cups on the floor in every room. Three are in the bathtub.

#9. There's always that one girl, bawling her eyes out in a corner.

#8. It's best not to assume that the person closest to you has any control over their digestive function.

#7. You sneak off to the bathroom knowing that as soon as you sit down, someone's going to start banging on the door.

#6. Probably 80% of the stains on the furniture contain DNA.

#5. You've got someone in your face at 3 a.m. looking for a drink.

#4. There's definitely going to be a fight.

#3. You're not sure whether anything you're doing is right, you just hope it won't get you arrested.

#2. There are crumpled-up underpants everywhere.

And the #1 reason having a toddler is like being at a frat party:

#1. You wake up wondering exactly how and when the person in bed with you got there!!!


  1. First of all this list is great. As a mother of two I can relate. Although this list is pretty relevant, I think, until they move out. It doesn't really change it just gets older, like your kids. Personally I am looking forward to the day my kids have their own houses and I can go and make a mess.

  2. Yeah, I figured any parent would be able to get this list. :-)

    I'm glad you liked the list, Annie! Actually, you'll probably get more fun out of watching your kids run around chasing their kids.

  3. oh no I plan on making the mess before the grandchildren get a chance But yes your right when I have grandchildren, someday, I will enjoy every minute of it.
