E is 15 months and since he started walking (12m) he's been into everything and is acting exactly how I've expected toddlers to (iyswim). He's a little whirlwind, requiring eyes in back of head and loves nothing more than a good cupboard/drawer emptying session! Obviously everything dangerous is put away or high up but for the most part I just let him get on with it at home and tidy up once he's in bed for a quiet life.
I work 30 hrs and Mum is my childcare which he loves and I'm happy he's with family. However SIL is a nursery nurse and over the past few months when we've seen her she's made more and more comments about E's "behaviour" and that he'd be better of in nursery plus lots of things on facebook to that effect as H's niece is 12 wks and at her nursery now so there are lots of pics and comments.
I've hidden them all from my newsfeed now to avoid the comments, but it gets me so riled. We're happy that E is a normal toddler indulging in normal inquisitive behaviour, however I just wondered what others thought? Are your toddlers the same? This weekend it's made me feel like he's abnormal in some way!
