Bucketlist for toddlers #1 – the cookie edition

fun with toddlers
Today me will live in the moment; unless it’s unpleasant, in which case me will eat a cookie – Cookie Monster
  • Eat double layered chocolate cookies by opening them, licking the chocolate and totally ignoring the cookies. Preferably invent this procedure in the car, smearing chocolate all over and being just out of reach of those annoying baby wipes.


  • Discover a small carton filled with eggs that mummy thoughtfully put out of your reach in the middle of the kitchen table. Surprise her by reaching them anyway. Be very quiet when you paint the egg yolks all over your face, hands, the floor and whatever strikes your fancy.


  • Throw a nice tantrum when your favorite cookies are out of stock. Make your parents feel really guilty and bring a few boxes of them when they go grocery shopping next time. Decide you don’t like them anymore. (Bonus points for choosing a brand even your dad doesn’t like).


  • Get punished in daycare for taking toys of your toddler colleagues. When you have to stand in the corner next to the carer’s table, spot the pack of chocolate cookies on it. Be very quiet and hide under the table. Try to eat as many as you can before you get discovered.



I love these lists (especially when the moment is behind me or when it’s not my child). Please share your stories in the comments!
