12. Now you have to eat it.
And that’s why we’re all fat.
My kid asked for a bagel with cream cheese but when I gave it to her she said she didn’t want it anymore and so I asked what happened in the three min it took me to prepare it and she just shrugged and said “I changed my mind”.

11. Procrastination at its finest.
She’ll learn one day. Or she won’t.

8. There have to be some perks of being the adult.

6. I guarantee your wife is doing other things.

5. Kid has a future.
There’s always a need for fresh interview topics.

4. Role reversal can be a great teaching tool.
It can also be fun if you play your cards right.
My 7yo wanted me to be her child when playing house, so I begged her for snacks and made her watch my "cool tricks," and within a few minutes, she sent me to my room so she wouldn't have to deal with me.

Hope he didn’t get stuck in that wet paint.
My friends daughters hamster has been missing and feared dead for almost 2 weeks now.
Last night she forgot to wash up the paint tray after a day of decorating.
