  • Living with a toddler definitely changes things up in the house — perhaps why the term "babyproofing" was coined. While parents will do their best to keep an eye on their kids, sometimes a stubborn toddler will find ways to escape... and create chaos.

    Life with a toddler

    From mommy's newly-bought makeup looking all used up to scrambled eggs becoming the next plaything, a toddler is almost always the mastermind behind the act. Just take a look at these photos that our moms from our Smart Parenting Village sent.

    Mom Lhara Romio starts it with these series of photos of her son:

    "Naka-ilang tawag siya sa'kin pero may ginagawa ako, 'di ko siya napansin. Ayun, bongga, kinalat niya damitan niya," shares Lhara.

    "Nakakalat ang pouch ko. Nakita niya siguro na ina-apply sa mukha at lips [ito] kaya ayun, ginaya," says Lhara.

    "Toothpaste as facial lotion," says mom Gemma Baduyen-Dicang. Mapapa-face palm ka na lang e!

    Beware of powder

    Baby powder is a toddler's favorite toy. Don't say we didn't warn you!

    Toddlers are little artists

    Parents encourage their kids to explore their creative side by giving them access to art materials. The problem is that the whole house becomes their canvass — and even parents aren't exempted!

    No board, no problem! Mama's legs are perfect for doodling.

    Anywhere and everywhere is a toddler's playground

    We've got to hand it to our kids. Despite being stuck indoors for more than a year now, they've managed to entertain themselves with their various antics. And on that rare chance when they can play outside, well, you can expect them to wreak havoc. LOL.

    This boy managed to climb up this mound... and then slide back down. Instant playground!

    “A picture that you can smell," writes mom Lelsy Manzon. Don’t you just love it when your home smells like scrambled eggs in the morning?
