Do you have crayons spread across your kitchen table?

Does lego appear in strange places, bathroom, bedside table, kitchen counters?

Do you regularly dig lego out of your vacuum?

Do you have discussions about poop and pee on a regular basis?

Do you get ongoing notifications of visits to the toilet?

Are you involved in courtesy wipes, post poop?

Is your sleep often interrupted?

Do you buy a lot of milk?

Does anybody in your household point it out to you when you use a swear word?

Have noticed an increase in the amount of laundry you do?

Do you often have to repeat yourself, or ask others to repeat themselves?

Are you exhausted at the end of the day?

You may have preschoolers:)



  1. It's been a while with my own but I had the grandchild for a month's earlier this year and on top of these I can add that I kneeled on a Lego and it is not to be recommended.

  2. All indications point 👉 to you having a little ole grandson living amongst the Old Folks! Not that you're old, but you damned sure feel old at the end of the day!
    Someday, Sweetie, it will get better! Jack will probably be married by then! 🤷

  3. I do recognize many of these symptoms.

  4. Thank you for visiting the bike shed again after my hiatus. I so miss our pre-schoolers - all post schoolers now!

  5. When I'm around my 3 1/2 year old grandson, YES to most of those!

  6. On the flip side, if Jack was the one that did that colouring, he's doing very well indeed staying inside the lines!!!

  7. Lucky Jack! Not so much, you. Stepping on legos is my worst memory of the preschool stage.

  8. I'm already exhausted and I don't have pre-schoolers! (I do, however, have about 800 middle- and high-schoolers to deal with.)

  9. Oh dear! Is preschoolers a new virus? Let's hope that Young Jack doesn't catch it!

  10. I'm so glad I'm catching up on my Blog Reading, this is such a trip down Memory Lane for me, the Raising of little ones for us Seniors can be so bittersweet, can't it?
