I'm sure that as toddlers grow and become little children they seem to become funnier and funnier. All of a sudden they are coming out with priceless expressions and funky dance moves. They start to understand the world around them and respond in their own unique little ways. They are plain cute.

They also know just how to push your buttons. Just how to act to really get under your skin. They throw tantrums, socks and toys.

They show you parts of yourself you really wish didn't exist.

The thing about children is that they learn from what you do. How you interact. How you respond to problems.
Sometimes we forget that we aren't just teaching them 'please', 'thank you' and to 'count to ten'. 
They are watching, listening absorbing everything. And right when you least expect it they'll let you know just how closely they have been watching.

Children are the ultimate mirror.
And sometimes the reflection is kinda scary.
