Our toddler’s current stage, in pictures. #YMCCommunity

Our toddler is currently going through the stage where he prefers to stay near or on Mommy.

This makes using two hands, preparing meals, going to the bathroom and utilizing child care at the gym or at Mommy functions, next to impossible.

Date night with Daddy will continue to be a no fly zone until this stage is over. Hopefully 6 months to a year.

These are a few ways that I like to describe this awesome stage of our toddlers life:

1) The barnacle.

2) The lingering smell that just won't go away.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids, but sometimes this Mama needs her personal space.
