10 Signs Your Home is Overrun by Littles

  1. You are fluent in 2 languages---your native tongue and Littlespeak.
  2. You have a cabinet full of multi-colored non-breakable tumblers---and you know how they got their name.
  3. You are losing your hearing---not because you blasted your ears with your walkman 20 years ago, but because the walls constantly echo with joyful squeals and angry wails.
  4. There are nose prints on every window at knee level---and you don’t own a dog.
  5. Your sofa rattles when you move it---because it’s full of pretzels, Duplo and wooden puzzle pieces.
  6. You step in a pile of crumbs in your bare feet---and you’ve already swept the floor 5 times today.
  7. There are tooth marks in the TV stand, graham cracker crumbs in the VCR and indelible ink marks on the kitchen table.
  8. All small, mouthable, destructible objects are at shoulder-height or above.---and everything else is bolted to the wall.
  9. You keep a change of clothes for everyone in the car---including yourself.
  10. The word “potty” is a place, a verb, and an object---and everyone needs to visit it to do it on it before going anywhere.

  2. That's the truth! I have pretty much given up on smudgeless glass. And the crumbs on the floor... HOW did you know?! LOL!

    I have graduated to the point where I no longer have to take a change of clothes for myself. And just shirts for the heathens.

  3. Oh my gosh...that is so funny...and so true!!

    I also have little fingerprints on every t.v., socks stuck in the bookcase, and M&M's hiding under the fridge :) But I wouldn't have it any other way!

    Have a great night!

  4. M&M's, yes...and don't forget the requisite Cheerios (grin). We will miss these days when they are out on their own.
