Like everyone else in the world, parents have good days and bad days. And like dogs, your kids can absolutely sense when you’re having one of those days when one small push will send you right over the edge.
These 10 kids are absolutely taking advantage of these opportunities to drive their parents absolutely mad.
10. We all know you’re full of baloney.
Or you’re some kind of witch, in which case, I’m interested again.
If you're a Mom and have a white couch, carpet or shirt, I'm out.
You clearly are not my people.

9. This is absolutely true.
Having two kids was super hard for the first year but since then it’s kind of been much easier.
Everyone always feels sorry for the parents with 10 kids, but, what about the parents with 1 kid? 1 kid won't leave you the fuck alone. Ever.

8. No one wants to make that Sophie’s choice.
If you’re a kid, you don’t have to.
My 4 year-old asked to have pancakes and waffles at the same time this morning, so I'd say my job as a parent is done.

7. Some things just come naturally, I think.
Farts are objectively funny. I said what I said.
Our children learn everything from watching us. It’s why my toddler treats strangers with kindness and always laughs at his own farts.

6. Kids are pretty harsh critics.
They’re honest, though, so take the feedback to heart.
3: mummy tell me a story
Me: *tells detailed story about mermaids, unicorns & hedgehogs with romance, adventure, suspense and plot twists*
Me: did you enjoy that sweetie

5. Telling someone to calm down gives me an eye twitch.
That and “stop crying” are two of the most unhelpful phrases in the human language.
My teenage daughter screaming “I AM BEING CALM!” just became a woman.

4. They model what they see, you know.
Good, bad, or effective, apparently.
5-year-old: *leads her little sister around on a dog leash*
Me: What do you think you're doing?
She learned from the best.

3. It’s going to be a real trial.
One among many, to be sure.
My kids aren’t sure how they’re going to adjust from 300 snacks before noon down to 2 when they start school again in the fall.

2. Let’s all band together and just start eating the pizza.
You know you don’t like any of your kid’s friends parents anyway.
Every single parent in the history of kid’s birthday parties who was offered a slice of pizza and declined really wanted that pizza.

1. Let me just stop you right there.
Or I could just pretend to listen.
Kid: "You know in Minecraft when.."

I kind of love all of these, but you know. I don’t live with these kids.
What’s the funniest/most terrible thing your kid has said or done when you just didn’t have the patience? Share in the comments!
