I mean, we’re all just getting it done one day at a time, but some of us are better at getting creative when presented with the challenges that parenting and kids throw at us every single day.

As a mom, I’ve gotta tip my hat to these 17 parents, whose out-of-the-box thinking is truly inspiring.

1. As long as they’re safe, I don’t see the problem.

The expressions on their cute faces say they’re worried, though.

2. My kids would be 100% jealous if they saw this.

Heck, I’m a little bit jealous!

3. This is absolutely beautiful.

Way better than the Mickey cake I made last year.

4. While you’re at it, cut yourself some slack.

These are not average days; forget average screen time rules.

5. This seems like pretty much everything that’s wrong with the world.

But I mean, ruining Titanic is good parenting so maybe they offset.

6. My kids would suddenly decide they didn’t need any toys.

They’re clever like that.

7. Cute, but they won’t get it.

Not until they’re older, at least.

8. Parents working from home have it rough.

We’re all muddling through as best as we can.

9. Anything to get them to eat their lunch.

Even turning into Voldemort, apparently.

10. I love this idea.

You get rid of monsters AND your kids rooms smell better!

11. Any day can be Halloween if you try hard enough.

And really, why not? Everything else is crap, so if it makes them happy…

12. Do kids even know about Scooby Doo?

Also those wheels don’t touch the ground?

13. I mean, you can’t go to the salon.

It might not be professional, but it’s better than nothing.

14. Absolutely never judging someone getting it done with three babies.

I would lose my ever-loving mind.

15. This mom is way nicer than I am.

Just drink the darn medicine and then sip some water, kid.

16. She looks like she’s in a padded cell for heaven’s sake.

I mean…there’s not even carpet?

17. Some days are all about survival.

Any parent who has been through it knows what I mean.

I never would have considered some of these things, how about you?

If you’re going to try any of them yourself, let me know which in the comments!
