Kids are a lot, y’all, and that’s on the days when they’re being reasonably good.
On the days when they decide to just let it all loose and push as many buttons as they can? You just hold on and hope the neighbors are used to hearing you scream.
And these 12 kids are giving their parents a run for their money.
12. Ooooh and it’s black, too.
That is a very bad moment.

11. When you just stand there and stare because you’re so shocked.
Where do you even start?
We cant find my 6 year olds glasses. Today we asked him where they are. He said and I quote “I threw them in the garbage yesterday, the lenses were dirty”.

10. At least she’ll smell good.
She’s committing to a scent early I feel it.
Me: *spends time picking out stuffed animals I think my daughter will love and get attached to*
My daughter: *sleeps with and carries around a lemon*

9. OMG I definitely need a followup to this.
Seriously, what’s living in there?
Me: What are you doing?
5-year-old: Playing with my pet.
Me: We don’t have a pet.
5-year-old: No YOU don’t have pet.
I’m suddenly very scared to go in her room.

8. Such a wonderful life we’ve all chosen, right?
It really is, but some mornings are like this.
Ahh, just standing here sipping my coffee, listening to the sweet sounds of my oldest two children fighting first thing in the morning while the baby tries to eat the cat food.

6. No one inspects food like a picky 3yo.
I don’t know how mine manages to grow.

5. They really think we can’t smell it?
It’s hilarious how long it takes them to realize things stink.
Me: Did you poop?
yes yes yes yes
yesye yes yes yes

yes yesye yes yes
yes yes yes yes

4. No one is judging her coping mechanisms.
This is just a hilarious conversation to imagine.
Reason #27 my 5 yo is crying today:
I told her if she was good at the store she could pick out a pack of gum. She picked Nicotine gum. I said no. Chaos ensued.
I gave in & bought the gum… for me.

3. I beg to differ on the hero comment.
This is a bold move and it paid off kudos.
At lunch time my toddler asked me for more food. Right as I put her plate down with more food she said no thanks I'm done then I looked at her and said that's not for you and I sat down at the little table and started eating my food. The look of defeat on her face, priceless.

2. This is one thing that drives. me. batty.
When you kind of want just a little coffee to get on them so they learn?
I’m really in the mood to cuddle my 3 year old. Gonna make it happen by pouring a hot drink and telling her not to touch me.

1. Take your time, because there’s no right answer.
Only wrong ones.
Welcome to parenting, your choices are:
A) Listen to your toddler scream and cry for 10 minutes because YOU opened their fruit snack.
B) Listen to your toddler scream and cry for 10 minutes because THEY don't know how to open their fruit snack.

I’m dying, y’all. I live for these stories about other people’s kids so I know I’m not alone.
