One of the more fun things about being part of a family is being able to give other people sh%t and knowing they aren’t going to get mad and walk away forever. They can’t walk away from blood, you know?
Kids tend to take this advantage to the extreme, though, be it harassing their siblings, cousins, or even their parents – and these 15 kids are never letting their parents forget these petty fails.
15. Classic dad move.
Mom always finds out.
I still remember when my mom was at work and dad was in charge of breakfast. He gave me cereal with apple juice in it instead of milk bc we had run out. Told me to just go with it haha

14. It was ONE TIME.
This kid is going to make an amazing spouse one day.
asked my 5-year-old what she wanted for dinner and she said “not a burned quesadilla” bc in the summer of 2019 I overcooked one side of her quesadilla

13. That’s a pretty big goof.
Heartbreaking for a kid, honestly.
My mom burned my Pete’s Dragon lunchbox in the oven because she put it in there to dry it (wtf?!!) and it took her hunting one down and buying it for my 41st birthday for me to get over it. pic.twitter.com/0MCe4X2s6H

12. And every other time they were perfect.
My kids would have a holiday without cinnamon rolls THEN WE WILL SEE.
My siblings and I are all grown and we still tease our mom that every holiday, the cinnamon rolls were burned on the bottom

11. She can’t be left alone.
Woman clearly doesn’t eat soup. Or at least she doesn’t enjoy it.
we had a kind of nanny for a couple of years when i was around 10 or 11. one night she made tomato soup with water instead of milk. from then on we made sure to supervise her ingredient choices in the kitchen

10. To be fair, that does sound disgusting.
But also it’s eggnog, so it was probably hard to tell.
My mom once bought low-fat eggnog and we’ll never let her forget it

9. He can never refuse her anything.
A lifetime of penance.
I completely relate, one time my dad gave me sour cream as school snack instead of vanilla yoghurt and I hold this over his head to this day

8. She can no longer be trusted.
But they’re not going to pack their own lunch or anything.
When my twins were in kindergarten FIVE YEARS AGO, I switched their lunches. Once. Teachers enabled a hallway swap after a few tears and they still check their lunches every day.
They didn’t even have to eat the wrong lunch, but they unzip box and give me side eye every day.

7. Mom was just trying to bake healthier.
We all know how that usually turns out.
Two years ago I put a banana in chocolate brownies once, once!! The recipe sounded good. I will never hear the end of it.

6. But they can’t remember a dang thing you said five minutes ago.
Their little minds are mysteries.
At a crosswalk with the stroller, I stopped short once, thinking a car was going when it wasn’t.
Now, a year later, at every crosswalk my toddler says loudly to me (and to anyone else who can hear): “DONT GET SCARED!”

5. Just trying to spice things up!
Words no child ever wants to hear about dinner.
She will be hassling you about this for the rest of her life. My dad mixed salsa into my Mac and cheese one time when I was 6, and I’ve never forgiven him for it.

4. That mom was totally mortified.
I guarantee she still hates that story.
I was 3 and walked up behind my mom at softball practice you swung at hit me above my eye. Went to ER and when asked what happened. I screamed my mom hit me with a baseball bat. Good thing it was in the 70s and not today. But i still remind her every family gathering.

3. Do they think things that look sort of alike are interchangable?
Or they think kids won’t notice, maybe.
It’s always dads and Mac n cheese! My dad used Mayo once instead of butter. My sister and I have been bringing it up for 30 years. More recently he used egg nog instead of milk. That will go on his tombstone.

2. It’s nice to know they remember the good stuff, too.
Even if they don’t talk about it as much.
My Dad still gets reminded of the time he over salted the broccoli when cooking for me and my bro. We were about 8 and 5 at the time. We’re in our 40s now…
Make faces out of potatoes and fry them…nothing better than the face chips my Dad used to make. His broccoli redemption!

1. They were both scarred for life.
Literally and figuratively.
My Mother once told me to NOT let My duvet touch The floor because of what happened last time
She meant when I tripped with it and got a scar on My eyebrow when I was four. The reminder came when I was around forty

I mean, I kind of hope my kids are this hilarious. It’s better than the alternative.
What petty fail will your kids not let go? Make us laugh about it in the comments!
