According to Wikipedia, there are several types of harassments. But nowhere in its exhaustive list does it mention anything about ‘toddler harassment’. Yes, I said ‘toddler harassment’, and if you’ve ever been in a situation where you have a whole list of things to do with not enough time to complete them, and, in addition, you have your little bundle of joy running around the place, getting between your legs, quite literally, you will have a fair idea of what I’m talking about. You know you’re being harassed by your toddler when:
- You pick up your toddler’s toy cell phone and try to dial a number.
- You’re putting together a chicken-and-macaroni bake dish and you almost throw in the macaroni –uncooked.
- Your doorbell rings and for some unknown reason you go answer the phone.
- You’re hanging the laundry out to dry and half way through you discover you’ve been taking said items out of the dirty clothes basket. (This may be partly my fault since it was my idea to have identical clean and dirty laundry baskets.)
In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve labeled this post ‘Toddler Harassment – 1’ because I’m sure there’ll be a sequel. Maybe more than one.
