Kids, man. I’ve told my husband more than once that our job is basically to get our sons from birth to five without allowing them to get gravely injured while exploring the world.
They’re 2 months and 2 years, so we’ve got a ways to go – and we’ve had some close calls thus far.
Sadly, after reading the responses to this tweet, it seems that we’ll have to remain vigilant far past the age of five. Darn.
#15. That’s one way to learn a lesson.
#14. Mission accomplished?
#13. Battle conditions.
#12. Horror show.
#11. Nosy neighbor ftw.
#10. What do you mean, that’s not how it works?
#9. Every part of this story is amazing.
#8. I hope your parents had good insurance.
#7. Talk about awkward conversations.
#6. Parenting nightmares.
#5. Someone didn’t learn their lesson.
#4. They should get an award for not shipping you to boarding school then and there.
#3. At least you stayed calm.
#2. This is actually terrifying.
#1. This is why all parents have poison control on speed dial.
Parenting is the job that never ends, my friends.
