Next time a toddler asks you WHY? about the same thing over and over again, ask them to tell you why. This can lead to a wonderful interactive dialog with them, which helps develop language skills. Be careful not to criticize the remarks, though. Doing so will discourage them from using their own thought processes to problem solve.

I try to buy my childrens clothes out of season. You can pick up whole outfits for babies and toddlers for $2-$3. My toddler is 14 months old rt now. So when I go to the store I find Her winter outfits for 24months and up. $2-$3! They grow out of them so fast Why should you pay more?
I have two dogs and every other day a 15 month old toddler. I take each dog on a separate walk every other day and i pack the toddler in a stroller and take her on a walk. With her, i find myself answering questions and not even thinking about the walk.
Toddler Tip~~ Grow A Vegetable Garden and They'll eat "em!!!
We have had a vegetable garden even before our toddler was born! The BEST tastes of summer come from the garden,whether it be fruit or veggies! When our toddler turned two, we gave him some fresh strawberries from the garden and he was hooked on fruit! Now,that summer harvest is here, he's ready...
for actually trying NEW vegetables because WE EAT THEM! He DOES LIKE and will eat broccoli!!!!He likes to help out with watering and slowly is understanding to pick the WEEDS ,not the young plants!I'm thinking of hosting for my moms' club " a -take -it-home-grow-it -yourself plant "playdate!!
