Let me tell you one thing: starting a new business is hard. Like, unfathomably so. There are days (okay, most days) I find myself stamping my foot, pouting, and crying when I don’t get my way. And I realized—boom—starting a business makes me act like a toddler.
- I want a nap, but I refuse to take it. Tears may or may not ensue.
- I need to be tucked in. No, you missed a part. By my feet. Ugh, you did it wrong. Tuck more by my feet! You know what, my socks are facing down. This is all wrong. Let’s start over.
- I need a snack. All the time. Nothing too fancy, just sushi perhaps? You know what? I’m really craving pasta. Let’s make homemade pasta!
- To avoid cleaning, I ask questions about God.
- I want a cheeseburger. No meat, no bum, no tomato, no lettuce. I would like to eat cheese for dinner.
- My pillow is too cold.
- My pillow is too hot.
- My back needs rubbing. No, you’re rubbing wrong. I’m not asking for much, just rub my back until I fall asleep, okay?
- I need one more hug. And one more kiss. Yes, but, just one more. And leave the hallway light on.
- I need you to watch me cry. And nod your head empathetically. Tell me it’s going to be okay.
Please tell me I’m not the only one. Toddler entrepreneurs, unite! 😉
