11. I hate being early.
Almost as much as I hate being late.
If you’re not 12 hours early then are you even going to the movies, airport, party, or show with a dad?

10. They grow up so fast.
She’s really going to need to share those cookies though.
My daughter has started baking and with two brothers, has also become a ninja at hiding the treats she makes. Her transformation into a middle aged mom is almost complete.

9. It’s funny reading about it.
Less so when it’s your everyday life.
7yr old: Mom watch this. Look mom. Mom are you watching? Mom did you see that? Did you see? Mom! Mom!
Me: I am watching! I am looking! I can not look any more than I’m looking! Like there is no higher of level of looking that I can possibly do!
7: Mom are you looking?

8. It’s funny when it’s not you.

Maybe it’s time to give him some privacy.

6. Wait, what?
I’m going to pretend I didn’t see that.
My pediatrician said bribery is not a good parenting strategy and I just wanted to pass that along in case you all needed a laugh

5. This is not a bad argument.
Be free at home, child.
Me: Why are you naked? You can’t be naked at school you know.
My 5yo: I know that’s why I’m naked now because I’m going to miss being naked so much.

I think we can agree on this lie, yes?
My kid asked if he should leave something for the tooth fairy, so I need everyone to back me up that the traditional offering is a bottle of wine

3. Only halfway?
It seems like it should have been more, no?
Good news! My 8YO says she is halfway done with the story which she started telling last Monday

2. He’s a deep thinker.
But he’s still going to eat that fish.

1. Why is this so real?
I guess names just don’t really matter.
Almost two weeks into Kindergarten and my daughter has made “so many” friends but so far all we know is that one of the friends has a name that starts with an A

Tell us in the comments which of these made you laugh!
