toddler messes

The saying "silence is golden" does not apply to parents with toddlers. It's not that you don't want a moment of silence. Of course you do, but if there is silence in a home where a toddler lives that's probably NOT a good thing. Why? Because if you have a toddler and you can't hear them, they're either napping, which is hardly ever the case, or they're up to no good.

What kind of "no good" are we talking about? Oh, tu sabes, the kind of no good that involves big messes that you will have to clean up because toddlers are great at making messes, but pretty much useless when it comes to cleaning them up. 

It's OK, though, because we love our little traviesos and end up laughing our pompis off at some of the trouble they get into. Also, it makes for great picture-taking opportunities, as you'll see in the examples we've collected in this gallery. So get your clicky finger warmed up and get ready to see hilarious messes that only a toddler can get away with making.
