Toddlers and Drunks:

• Someone always vomits. Always.

• Everything must be announced, and it must be announced loudly.

• After you've been carrying them up and down the street for a while, you start to wish you had thought to bring a stroller.

• A brightly colored stuffed animal will provide them with hours of entertainment and companionship.

• Lacking a sippy cup, their drink is all over the place in seconds.

• They'll spend the better part of their evening sucking something ? either their thumb or someone else's face.

• At some point, you usually end up feeding them ? airplane noises optional.

• You find yourself standing outside the bathroom door saying, "Do you need help?" over and over until they ask you to come help them wipe.

• When they don't like something, they make sure you know. Usually from the floor, kicking and screaming.

• Without a hand to hold, they teeter and totter around the house clutching counters, chairs, and groins for balance.

• The moment they stop running around the living room, they pass out on the couch.

• Crying. So much crying.

• In order to understand their mumbled words, you have to repeat your best guesses at what they are trying to say until they nod yes, Mad Gab style. The answer is almost always "I want the bottle."
