Toddler Professions

I hate to brag, but my toddler Dax is truly gifted.   His professional future is bright!  Just check some of his current options.

First, he could be an
Artist
This may be the only time a live canvas was decorated with chia seeds.  I think it turned out beautifully.

 And I'm not quite sure how he could use this next particularly impressive skill.  Maybe a
 Grocery Bagger
Dax is a top rated stuffer.  He has now stuffed (and broken) our Wii disc slot and our DVD player.  Here's his latest stuff, my van tape player.

We're moving on to his most practiced talent,
Toy Tester
He could start this career right now!  My one-year-old has an awe-inspiring knack for finding out how many ways a toy is NOT safe.

Now for an intensely competitive field,
Food Critic
This meal was sent back to the kitchen.

And finally,  of course,
World Famous Dancer
Grooving has been his passion for many months now.  Here's a blurry, but captivating shot of Dax doing the river dance.

Grumpy Grateful Mom Goal of the Day:  Having gratitude for my gifted little guy.

If you made it through this, you might also endure: The Top 10 Loves of my One-Year-old.

What, sensory tables aren't for wading in? :) Whatever career he decides on I'm sure he is going to excel at it!

What a talented little guy and at least you are taking some of the ouchies with a lot of laughter. The best way to handle it. :)

Haha hilarious! No wonder I relate so much to you :). How old is he?

OMG I love that last picture of him dancing.
So cute.

I never thought of it this way...perhaps mine is in training to be a town crier? LOL

did you use the tape player?

Gotta love little boys and their antics :-)

 
At August 24, 2011 at 8:35 AM , Blogger Grumpy Grateful Mom said...

To Tessica: We actually did use the tape player. That's not weird right? Though mostly on trips to hook up the sound from our mini-dvd player into the van's sound system. It won't be easy, but I think we'll manage without it. :)

He has an impressive resume for a 1yr old. I can only imagine how his skills will grow over the next year. Its amazing! So cute!

You weren't kidding when you suggested that your Dax and my Tripper were kindred spirits! Every time I read your blog I can see myself and my kids so easily. It's a good thing that I'm not the only one!

He's multi-talented! Sure to be an impressive resume for that guy

Have you contacted Simon Cowell? He's going to want to sign Dax asap! Great post and great looking new blog...a girl goes away for about a week and all sorts of changes happen! Looks great!

That is so adorable and funny too. Thanks for the smiles!

 
At August 25, 2011 at 12:36 AM , Blogger Jessica said...

He is all sorts of talent. Reminds me a lot of my toddler except she wouldn't be a good grocery bagger. She likes to unpack things, like the diaper bag, and throw the contents all over the floor.

 
At August 25, 2011 at 1:34 AM , Blogger Kiddothings said...

These are great career options for my kids too!

Too cute! Your professional dancer's just adorable!
