Can Someone PLEASE Explain This to Me

Moms, this one is for you!

Really. How does a 16 month old child have more strength than me?

I have really beefed up in the upper arm department. Yes, there is one plus of carrying around a car seat with a baby, then carrying a 26 pound one year old, then a 30 pound 16 month old...you get the point. Needless to say, my arms have really toned up since pregnancy (good thing...because everything else has done the opposite).

So, how is it then that when it comes time to put him in the carseat and he doesn't want to go, that it takes ALLLLL my strength to wrestle him in? Really? Someone PLEASE explain this to me.

just wait till he is 3 and in a full blown tantrum in the middle of Target! This is just prep work for that! =) But really, a toddler's strength is amazing. Tickling works wonders, gets em to bend their waists. After that, speed becomes your best friend.

i don't think it's just strength... their manuevurability is quite incredible... stiffening or going deadweight seems to multiply their power!

LOL- I have no idea- if I'm not planted right J knocks me on the ground- they are like animals- they have no restraint yet! :) With B if he puts up a fight, I have one forearm across him bending him in half and the other trying to get a belt around him as fast as possible! Man, I just read that and thought how horrible that probably sounds- oh well- in the name of safety... and getting somewhere on time. :)
