Listen, if you’ve been a parent for any amount of time, there’s a good chance you have an entire catalogue of fails – but hopefully you’ve had your share of wins, too.
We can talk about the latter category and celebrate us another day, though – this post is all about those epic (and hilarious, in hindsight) moments when you definitely were not at your best.
13. I cannot with this one.
I think I would have died.
12. I mean, you can’t blame them.
And you can’t explain afterward because no one would believe you.
11. Did they just act like they belonged and party crash?
I need more details!
10. He could probably use one, too.
I’m just saying.
9. Oh, well.
Those things are just to laugh at later, anyway.
8. Maybe they thought she was a lifeguard.
At least everyone was safe.
7. Just a trial run.
Of course it won’t have the same impact the second time.
6. There’s always that risk.
Realizing it in front of an audience is cringe, though.
5. He might never.
It will be in his wedding speech, clearly.
4. Talk about throwing some money down the drain.
Should have thrown the sheets in the wash instead.
3. Some communication might have been in order.
I can’t believe it went on that long!
Maybe a second cup of coffee in the morning, eh?
1. The kid never spoke up!
He’s the true villain here.
The good news is that if you remember stuff like this, chances are you’re a good parent who won’t make the same mistakes again. Good on you!
