Watching your kid growing up in front of you is a blend of feelings; it is scary, unique, and kind of heartbreaking as well to a certain extent.

At this stage, they can talk and communicate what they need or want.

Your toddlers are understanding and maturing more and more with every passing day, right before your eyes.

13. Remind Us to Live In the Moment

You all must have experienced one of the best feelings in the world of running around your baby in the evening, acting like a fool and getting caught up in the moment. It is the true happiness that you cannot get from any other thing.

These moments will make you realize that you have forgotten all your worries, your stressors have momentarily disappeared, and your to-do list is out of your mind (out of sight, out of mind situation).

The commitment and determination the toddlers have are what is missing in the elders. They could single-mindedly focus on convincing you to let them wear their favorite shirt or eat their favorite ice cream.

15. Thinks About You as a Superhero

You will not feel as loved as you do when you are dropping off your toddler for the first time in the school, and the teacher is physically wrenching him away from you. For your child, you are a superhero with all the superpowers, and they look at you with admiration.

16. Will Always Be Your Baby

No matter how much your baby has changed and grown up over time, they will always be your baby and will need you every time no matter what.

You will feel it when they are tired and snug up next to you or when they got their knee scraped and came running to you. Moreover, you will feel it when you see the face of your baby all lighten up when you come home, and it will make you wonder how you can become so lucky to have this little angel.
