Toddlers are hilarious tiny creatures.  They have much more mobility and energy than a baby and they can make you laugh and cry all in the blink of an eye.  Those little devious children sure give us a run for our money.  Here’s what living with toddlers really looks like.

1. “What?  He likes it.”

Toddlers have no idea that they could be hurting someone or something when they sit on it.  So, he’ll just keep riding the dog when you’re not looking.
