Tom Brady is basically a living legend. He’s going to go down in history as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, and as things stand, he’s number one. There aren’t many people around him who can even come close, and this is why.
Winning Is Everything
In sports, if you’re not first, then you might as well be last. Winning is what counts, and no one remembers the losers, no matter how well they play. The history books remember winners, and Tom Brady is out on his own for Super Bowl rings. The New England Patriots icon has won a total of six Super Bowls, meaning he needs two hands to fit all of his rings on. That’s more than any other player in the history of football and puts him at the number one spot.
Brady isn’t the most impressive player to watch, and his statistics don’t suggest he is either. He doesn’t throw the farthest or have the most completed passes, but what gets him through games, and championships, is his brain. Brady has always been a smart player, and his ability to see what’s happening on the field sets him apart.
He can run the game with ease and can change up his strategies whenever he needs to. Brady is sharp and can figure out when the opposing defense is changing their tactics. The only stat that matters shows that Brady’s the best because he’s won the most. Not only Super Bowls, but Brady has the most regular-season victories with 207.
For many years Joe Montana was seen as the one quarterback that all others had to measure up against. Brady has overshadowed the great Montana and is now the man everyone is aiming to become.
No matter how much you study or get advice from other parents, becoming a parent can be a really raucous adventure. Plus, you’ll soon realize that books and people can only teach you so much… Sometimes parenting will be fun and funny, sometimes it will be difficult, and other times you will wonder what the heck you got yourself into. Check out the list below as a precautionary measure… Kidding not kidding!
When kids are young, they like to explore and experiment and put just about anything they can find in strange places. Sometimes this is in their mouth, in their food, and apparently, sometimes, it’s in the toilet.
This mother must have been going crazy trying to find her phone for hours. Eventually, though she found it, and like every good detective, which as a parent you will get to be, she scrolled through her pictures to find the culprit. What a cute criminal!
There are a lot of milestones that you mark in life when it comes to raising children. One of those is when they go from wearing diapers to being able to use the bathroom on their own.
But when they do learn how to go to the bathroom, you may wind up having awkward conversations with them, as this gentleman had with his son here. After all, who doesn’t strip down to use the restroom?!
Over the last year and a bit, we’ve all had to adjust our lives, and that includes our work lives. Many of us have begun to work from home, and that meant tons of zoom calls. But when you’re a parent, you have to keep one eye on the prize and one eye on the kid.
For a teacher with a small child, that has to be challenging, and if you’re going to be a parent that works from home, you may need to pay closer attention. Otherwise, you may wind up with a child who doesn’t know how to stop and continually runs into walls.
Smell You Later
Many parents have to work to make ends meet, and that means leaving their children at daycare. When this is the case, and the children are small, many daycares offer a diaper schedule.
This schedule is so that you can keep track of bowel movements for health reasons. However, it can also be a source of amusement! Just look at the last entry and be prepared because this is going to be something you may have to deal with. Best of luck!
Color Me Not Surprised
Leaving children to their own devices at any age when there are siblings involved is a dangerous proposition. As a parent, you never know what you are going to be walking into when you return to your home.
One thing is for sure though, there’s never a dull moment, and there will be plenty of times where you want to laugh and cry all at the same time. Plus, it must have been a real pain trying to wash this purple paint off.
You Got Something on Your Face
When kids get bored, they get creative. That’s why it’s always best to have a partner so that you can sleep in shifts as a form of protection from that bored child. Unfortunately, not all of us have that ability.
This dad just needed a little shuteye, and in that short 20-minute catnap, his daughter decided she wanted to be Picasso. We bet no one ever told you that you had to look out for vandalism when dealing with small children. You’re welcome, for the tip!
I’ll Get Him
School has changed a lot nowadays. Most kids have begun taking classes from home, which brought a whole world of other issues that parents have had to deal with.
That includes having to be cautious of what you wear and what you say, as this may make an appearance in one of their zoom classes. It also means you probably should lock the doors when you’re taking a shower, as this father learned.
What Happened Here?
Kids get into everything, and every one of them will have a different method of handling the situation. You will have a crier that knows that if they cry enough, mom and dad will forgive them for making a mess.
If you’re truly lucky, you’ll have the one that wants to explain. These are the ones you’ll have to watch as they grow because they are the ones that will try to get away with anything. We mean, look at that face, don’t you want to hear the explanation?
Kid’s inquisitiveness doesn’t stop, and that does mean sometimes waking up to 1000 different questions. Of course, if you wake up in the middle of the night with your child staring at you, that might be a little frightening, but it’s OK, they just have a question.
When this happens, you have to decide if you want to get up or turn over and tell them that you’ll talk about it in the morning. Just know that waiting until the morning may mean that you have a little child staring at you for the rest of the night.
You work hard to raise your children in a way that reflects (hopefully) the good parts of you. So if you’re someone who loves Halloween and scaring the crap out of people, then chances are you are teaching your child how to do that.
So when they actually go above and beyond and scare you, it’s a moment of pride. That is, of course, after you have calmed down and stopped screaming.
Are You Almost Done?
Patience is a virtue that not many small children have. That is why you see a lot of parents talk about the fact they can’t even go to the bathroom by themselves when the child is small. So taking a shower could be even more challenging.
Of course, maybe having a shower with a see-through door could be helpful, or it could be utterly creepy like pictured here. If you find yourself in a situation similar to this, try to not let your mind jump to those horror movie scenes.
Sometimes when kids don’t get their way, they will react in protest. This protest can occur in many ways, including stripping down naked and trying to run away. So be warned, you may want to keep a change of clothing with you at all times.
When unhappy with his dad’s decision, this little guy decided he wanted to move out and leave all his clothes at home. He definitely sent a message with his actions. We bet this kid will grow up and become an activist of some sort.
When it comes to that time of a child’s life where they’re learning how to handle their urges like going to the bathroom, sometimes they don’t quite make it. That may mean that you deal with wet beds, or it might mean they find other places to do their duty.
For this kid, that meant peeing in a humidifier. Why they turned it on, though, is anyone’s guess! Maybe they thought they were flushing? No matter the reason, it definitely made for an interesting day of cleaning for the poor parents.
Learn to Multitask
Becoming a parent often means learning how to do everything with one hand. This is an important thing to know, especially if you are someone who works from home. Just be prepared to learn the art of multitasking.
Things like sitting at your desk and doing your paperwork or running reports will now have to be done while holding on to the child and trying to be as quiet as possible. We wish you luck!
Consequences Be Damned
When you become a parent, you have to set clear boundaries and rules, especially when you work from home. So, having a visual aid can be quite handy to cement these rules in your child’s memory.
But in order for them to work, both parents have to be on board, and clearly, this mom wanted a little downtime. So consequences be damned! LOL! Hope dad is ready for this!
Solving Unique Problems
Having more than one child is challenging in many ways. Not only do you have to keep your eyes on the swivel at all times, but you also need to be keen on hearing. Otherwise, you may spend 20 hours fixing a sticky situation as this mother did.
We are sure that the brother didn’t mean any harm and that he was just trying to give his little sister a new do. But, unfortunately, that led to quite a mess that the mother had to sort out. Get ready to problem solve when you least expect to!
Harsh, but True
Kids love to celebrate a holiday, and one of the best is a birthday. No matter if it’s theirs or relatives, they like to show they care. Often this means getting out the arts and crafts and creating a homemade-with-love-birthday-card.
Even though the card is meant to make you smile, kids also are unfiltered, and that means you may get a message that isn’t quite what you expect. Like this dad who was given a life lesson by his little one. We hope he didn’t end up having a mid-life crisis over this!
It’ll Be Funny
The fun doesn’t stop when they become teenagers either! In fact, as they begin to develop their own personalities, sometimes kids can get even more interesting and adventurous. Not sure if that is fun or terrifying to you, but it’s something you should be prepared for.
Sometimes they’ll think things are funny, like playing dead while parasailing, and you will have to let them know that yes, it is, but it is not right!
Silence Is Not Golden
We’ve all heard the adage “silence is golden”, but that isn’t always the case when dealing with children. In fact, when a child goes radio silent, you should probably wonder what they’re up to, especially if they’re the inquisitive type.
If you aren’t attentive enough (which happens sometimes), then you may wind up with a plant that kind of looks like this. In situations like these, try to look on the bright side ― now the plant looks pretty artsy!
Truth Be Told
If 2020 taught parents anything, it was that teachers need to be more respected and that they have a harder job than most of us assume. It also taught us that sometimes teachers try to be overly polite when it comes to the joy your child brings them in class.
This realization is a good thing, and as kids return to school, parents are probably a whole lot more grateful for those quiet hours without them. As much as they love and adore their little ones, no full-time job (as in parenting) is smooth sailing.
Everyone’s a Critic
Given the odd times that we’ve all recently been through, many parents have stayed home, which meant a change in their work attire. But as the year goes on, many of those parents are returning to work, which means changing back to how they used to dress.
Not only is this startling for the parents, but it can be even more so for the young children. So be warned, you do have a small critic in the house, and they will let you know what they think of your style.
Show and Tell
Every now and then it becomes apparent that you need a little relaxation, and sometimes that equates to an adult beverage. However, with little eyes in the house, this might lead to some interesting conversations and some frightening events.
Maybe they like the smell of your drinks, and so when they are asked to share with the class what smells good to them, something like this happens. We don’t know about you, but we would be mortified! Good luck explaining your way out of this to the teacher.
A lot of parents enjoy heading out into the world and having beautiful family photos taken with their kids. This often means matching outfits and cute poses. After all, you only live once, and you have to capture the memories.
Some of the memories, though, you may not want to remember, or if you do, you will definitely not remember them very fondly. This is a perfect example. Well, at least this child looked adorable while in the act of spewing.
When you have a large family, one of the key ways to make sure that no one kills each other is to have plenty of room. But many families realize that not even this can save them because half of the time, everybody winds up in the same room.
Why this happens, no one knows, but it’s bound to get frustrating for a parent. Just look at this poor dad here. Well, at least he has a cool beard.
Social media is becoming a thing at a younger and younger age, and so many schools are trying to teach kids responsible online use. This is a good thing as when they get older, they will be able to handle and understand the ramifications of what they post.
This kid wanted to share a picture of him and his dad in a candid moment, and unfortunately for his dad, that meant everybody knew what he was good at.
It’s Not What You Think
Kids don’t always know what is what, and that could lead to some miscommunications that can be shared while they’re at school. But what this little girl here did seems to be more of a sneaky excuse than just an innocent mistake.
Or did she just get her herbs mixed up? Either way, we bet the poor mother had some explaining to do after this. We really hope the jail comment was fake news though…
Mommy, I’m a Mummy!
Kids love to draw and doodle. This is why so many parents find pieces of art on the walls, on siblings, and on the child themselves. If the child is old enough, they know better, and so when they realize it could lead to trouble, they often try to figure a way out not to get caught.
It’s especially hard to hide when the child decides to draw on their face. So why not make themselves into a mummy? That way no one will recognize him, right? Unfortunately, that wall ruined his master plan.
What Are You Doing!?
You take your eye off the kid for one second, and everything can change! So doing anything like house chores or working can be challenging when trying to wrangle a child and complete your tasks.
This mom learned that very quickly when she turned around to see her child drinking pee. Not the most hygienic but also not the absolute worst thing that could have been in the child’s mouth.
When you’re a kid, your imagination is full of crazy stories. Of course, these stories don’t always make sense, and often they’re super longwinded, but they’re amazing, nonetheless. Teachers try to cultivate that.
But sometimes, those stories get a little weird, and that’s when the teacher has to reach out to the parents. We’re not sure this story is one of those cases. Though it is a little strange!
As a parent, you’re going to spend hours upon hours playing make-believe. This could be really fun, or it could be pretty annoying, depending on your mood that day. After all, some kids take it a little too far and get a little too into role-playing.
This young girl took her culinary arts very seriously and needed her dad to take a small bite of her imaginary sandwich. If we know anything, the best rule of thumb is just to go along with your child, so there are no tantrums thrown.
Trying to Help
Some kids love animals so much that you can tell they want to be a veterinarian or some sort of doctor. This care and kindness that they show is a good thing, although sometimes you might not feel that way.
In fact, sometimes, the way they choose to show this is by creating strange things and trying to help them even if they don’t need help. This may not be what you expected from being a parent, but it is something you should get used to.
No, Means No!
One of the biggest things that many people don’t realize when having kids is that sometimes kids can be very irrational. They want what they want and don’t understand when they can’t get what they want.
Many of these situations can be rectified by explaining to them why what they are after is not possible. But that only works some of the time, and the other times you’ll have to just deal with the screaming child. For these times, we suggest getting yourself a pair of noise-canceling headphones.
I Told You!
Kids don’t always understand how to explain things when something is not going the way they want them to. This often makes for a very funny situation, but that being said, sometimes they get it right the first time.
Take, for instance, this kid who was trying to tell his dad that the bag was broken, and the dad just did not understand. We are sure he got it when he was sweeping up the chips from the floor. Talk about a miscommunication!
If you ever wonder where your child is off to, they often leave you clues that can help with the search process. For this mother, it was clear that she would be able to track her little treasure by following the handprint trail.
Dealing with a mess in places you wouldn’t expect is another thing you’re most definitely going to deal with as a parent. So, as much as we all like being house-proud, you’ll probably have to lower your standards once you’ve had your little ones.
That’s My Boy!
Kids get creative and sometimes they can create really cool innovations. But, unfortunately, what most parents understand is that their creative genius doesn’t always exhibit this in the correct places. This inventive face mask is just one example.
Sometimes you would never know about these ‘genius’ moments that your kids have if it wasn’t for the teachers at your kid’s school. So try to make friends with them, that way you’ll have all the ammunition to embarrass your kids in the future.
We All Do It
One thing you have to be prepared for as a new parent is the constant questions. There will be a lot of them as the child grows up as they are trying to understand the world and everything in it.
Sometimes those questions can be deep and smart, and other times, they’ll leave you scratching your head. But no matter how silly the question, you have to attempt to answer them to the best of your ability.
Now I Understand
Remember all those times that people tried to tell you how you would be sleep-deprived and on edge when raising a child? Most of the time, you disregarded those, and now you know they were telling you the truth.
There will be frustration, and you will need a lot of patience, but it’s OK ― the force is strong in you, and we’re sure you’ll make it. Just remember the importance of power naps…
Torturing your younger sibling is a rite of passage, and some siblings do it better than others. However, when dealing with two little ones, you’re going to have to get used to it and figure out how to minimize the damage.
However, one thing to keep in mind is that they may not know that they are torturing their sibling, or maybe they’re just going to make you think they don’t know… We are sure that this is what’s happening here.
Can I See Your License?
Nothing is off-limits when you’re a young child, you try to get your hands in everything. Children often like to play ‘adult’, and sometimes that means they get into your purses and wallets.
As long as you catch them before anything major has happened, you’re all right, but unfortunately for this mother, she did not. Now she has to explain to the officer why she doesn’t have her license… Just another fun bump on the never-ending ride of being a parent.
Even kids can be passive-aggressive. You have to brace yourself for them being angry with you and frustrated just like you are with them. Sometimes they’ll tell you how they feel to your face, and other times the message will be a little more indirect.
For example, you may just be having a shower, and once you reach for a soap bar, you’ll see it etched into it. Try not to take it too personally. After all, kids’ bouts of anger usually are explosive yet very short.
I Drew You a Picture!
This little girl or boy (we feel it’s a girl) tried to show their love to their parents. The problem is, they weren’t told that you’re not supposed to use the hood of the car as your personal drawing pad.
On second thought, it doesn’t seem like it was drawn — more like scratched… with a screwdriver. We seriously hope that their car insurance covers these types of damages.
Most parents would agree that bathing your kids is the hardest part about being a parent, or possibly just one of the hardest parts. First, it’s always a problem to convince your children to get into the shower.
Second, the actual showering part can be a total disaster. In this case, it looks like trouble began even before this daily ritual started. This proves, one more time, that you shouldn’t — under any circumstances — leave your kids unattended.
Just by looking at this picture, we can tell that the wife wasn’t around to stop this from happening. We just have a feeling that something like this is likely to happen to new dads.
We wonder what exactly happened here. Did they accidentally pour more foaming soap than necessary? Or, did these supposedly innocent-looking toddlers have a hand in the matter? Judging by the amount of foam, we think those three angelic-looking faces definitely played a part.
Dressing Up the Toilet
There’s no limit to kids’ creativity, especially when they’re left alone. When this happens, you should definitely check up on them. Chances are, they’re up to no good — at least, according to our definition of good.
This is exactly what happened here. When left alone, this little girl decided to decorate the toilet on the second floor of their condo. This is definitely the way to show mommy how much you love her.
Kids and puddles is a never-ending love story, but this picture takes it to a whole new level. How many times have you told your kid not to step into puddles on a wet day? How many times did they actually listen to you?
Usually, they would do the opposite and happily bath their feet in them. Looks like this jolly bunch took it to the extreme and went headlong into the mud.
Raiding Mom’s Makeup Drawer
There’s nothing that you can hide or stow away from kids. Somehow, these little rascals manage to get their dirty little hands on almost anything you are trying to hide from them — be it candies, cleaning agents, or even makeup.
By the looks of it, this little girl found out where mommy keeps her mascara and decided to try it on her face. We would have definitely mistaken her for a coal miner.
Beanbags are great fun. These huge couch-like cushions are the best thing that has happened to humanity since the invention of hamburgers. The problem begins when you let kids near them.
Actually, the problem begins when you let kids near anything. These little monsters won’t spare anything that comes their way, including innocent beanbags. In the battle of kid vs. beanbag, it’s kid 1 and beanbag 0.
Caged Her Little Sister
They say that good things come in pairs. Certainly, we don’t think they meant kids. One kid is sometimes too much, but two? You’ve got yourself into a never-ending crisis, especially if your kids are about the same age.
We don’t know what the little one did to deserve this, but it looks like her older sister wanted to make a point. We hope she was grounded for this.
If we ever write a book about how you should raise kids, keeping open paint cans away from them would probably appear somewhere at the beginning. Leaving open paint cans around children is simply inviting trouble.
Whenever doing renovations, just make sure you keep your kids as far away as possible from acrylic paints or else you would have a hard time figuring out how to remove them from their bodies. We recommend using various solvents and tons of body scrub.
Developing Artistic Skills
Sometimes, you can tell from a very young age what your kid will be good at. With some kids it’s more obvious, and with others it takes a little more time to realize what they’re good at.
In this case, there’s no doubt that this kid is a budding artist. What’s a flat TV screen if not a canvas waiting for an artist to transform it into a piece of art? It’s also a hole in the family budget.
Too Much Sugar
Usually, this happens with unattended candy boxes. Kids, like locusts, seem to appear out of nowhere, consuming large amounts of sweets. After filling themselves up with these forbidden fruits, they usually become hyperactive and start raising havoc around the house.
Then, as sugar levels begin to drop, they slowly doze off to sleep. It seems like this toddler here had his way with a jam jar and fell asleep in the middle. Keeping jam jars tightly sealed is our advice.
Pets often become silent accomplices whenever kids come up with various acts of mischief. While this looks harmless, we still think that the dog isn’t too happy with it.
We also wonder how was she able to get all those fancy things she needed for this tea party. At least, she didn’t try making the dog drink imaginary tea or invite her imaginary friends, as far as we know.
Kids and technology is a bad combination, which usually ends in technology being destroyed or suffering catastrophic damage. What’s worse, kids tend to pick the most sensitive or important pieces of technology and have their way with them, regardless if the parents are in the middle of an important project or a Zoom meeting.
Looks like someone here will not be able to finish that report and email it to their boss. “My kid destroyed the keyboard” sounds like a good excuse to us, though.
Entire books can be written about kids and animals. The two are simply inseparable, but things can go wrong, and often do go wrong. How were these kids able to get some random cat into their house (or is it the neighbor’s cat?) and paint a fake moustache and eyebrows on its face?
This takes a whole new degree of creativity. The result is hilarious no doubt, but chances are that mom or dad would have to explain to the neighbours why their cat looks like that.
For some reason, kids have a tendency to paint all over their pets. We wonder if they should start including lessons about how to treat animals as part of the curriculum in kindergarten.
Parents should be really careful about where they leave tools for these budding artists. If they fall into the wrong hands, as in this case, the result may be worthy of an Instagram post, but less pleasurable for the poor pet.
Always Be a Mom
They made a good point here. Something happens to women when they earn the title of “mom.” They become bossy all of the sudden, barking orders no less efficiently than your average drill sergeant.
What’s worse, even their husbands have to follow along or else the consequences will be dire. So, kudos to the six-year-old who made this excellent case in point — a fair warning to everyone wishing to become a parent.
You Can Sleep Outside
Kids may sometimes, inadvertently, be a little insolent. Chances are, they’re not doing it on purpose — unless they’re really mean — but simply because they don’t see things the same way as adults do.
It’s still something that future parents should be aware of. This four-year-old wanted a kitten, despite the fact that one of their parents is allergic. So, they came up with a cheeky solution. We hope they were scolded for that.
Phone Drowning Plans
If we were this four-year-old’s parents, we would have jumped out of our seats and rushed to check where we left our phone. This certainly can’t be anything good — either they took their parent’s phone and literally drowned in the potty, or they had clear intentions of doing so.
We probably couldn’t possibly comprehend what’s happening in the mind of a four-year-old who’s planning to drown their parent’s phone, but at least they gave a fair warning or an after-the-fact statement.
Sometimes, kids don’t mean what they say, or don’t fully understand that you cannot unsay certain things. This seven-year-old was probably upset about something that her mom didn’t allow her to have or do, so she merely expressed her annoyance… in a rather dramatic way.
Of course, no parent deserves hearing that from someone who is a flesh of their flesh. This is just one of those moments that no one prepares you for as a parent.
Kids have great imagination, but sometimes, they take it a little too far. Seems like this little girl here threw a tantrum, got tired, and decided to draw a pillow right on the sidewalk and then take a nap.
She gets 10 points from us for ingenuity. Parents be warned, this could happen to your kids too. If she were more imaginative and cheeky, she would have probably drawn a sturdy bed frame and a mattress too.
Samara or Amadioha?
Even if you’ve never watched The Ring or know who Amadioha is (we will explain), this is still very disturbing. So, rule number one, when raising kids — keep wigs well hidden, preferably somewhere they can’t ever find them. Otherwise, chances of you getting a heart attack could rise exponentially.
Amadioha, for your information, is an African deity of the Igbo people of southeastern Nigeria, often associated with thunder and lightning. Either way, this isn’t a sight anyone would want to see.
Well, this is unfortunate. The kid had good intentions, but someone should have told him that having a fish for a pet is not like having a cat or dog for a pet. You can’t pet them.
But, kids will be kids, and that’s what happens when you give them a fish for a pet and don’t explain them what you’re supposed to do with it. Actually, you’re not supposed to do anything with fish. Fish are just fish, in the tank.
Toddler on the Loose
Sometimes, toddlers can be swift as lighting and cunning like hungry foxes. Other times, they’re just too smart for their own good. We believe it to be the case here. This little rascal was probably crawling on the floor or running around, flapping her hands and hollering with excitement, until she saw this doggy door.
Moments later, she probably realized that this time she took it too far. We hope the proud parents actually rescued her after taking this picture.
Yell on Demand
Yelling is never a good way to educate your children. However, sometimes it’s absolutely necessary when all else fails. In this case, the yelling part is quite humorous actually.
It seems like those kids are so used to being yelled at, because they always delay their parents when going out, that they decided to outsmart them this time. Technically, it’s indeed their parents fault for not starting to yell at them earlier.
You spend days, night, months and years, investing in them — and that’s what you get in return. This made us seriously consider if we want to have kids ourselves.
Anyway, looks like this four-year-old was hoping to get a treat or something similar for their supposed good behavior, but their mother didn’t fall for that. So, the most powerful weapon in the toddler’s weapons arsenal was unleashed — throwing a tantrum.
Blame it on the Dog
This couldn’t be more obvious — the dog did it, right? We’re kidding of course, but we bet that the kid was trying to pin it on the dog. Too bad his face gave it all away. That guilty look is simply priceless.
We’re actually more concerned about the dog. Why would you want to paint on the little guy, too? Wasn’t the wall enough? Honestly, we would rather have him paint all over the wall than on that poor dog.
Evidence Found at the Scene
Ever since children developed a strong liking for sugar, the two have become inseparable. This two-year-old is a living proof of that. After raiding the candy stash, and unwrapping all of the candies she could get her little hands on, she pretended to fall asleep when her parents tried to catch her red-handed.
She forgot to eliminate key pieces of evidence, however. But, still, you have to admit that pretending to be asleep is an excellent diversion tactic.
When kids grow up, they have a tendency to start testing their parents’ boundaries. This is just another example of such a behavior. You ask them to do something around the house, and they act like a smart aleck.
The older they get, the cheekier they become. We wonder what would happen if they’d asked them to clean the floor. This would probably not end well because sometimes, kids just take things too far.
Every book about parenting would inform you that if you tell your kid not to do something, chances are that they’ll do the exact opposite. These books, however, offer no explanation as to why kids do that.
Actually, this could be a great educational moment. We would suggest that they wear those torn pants to school. This would certainly teach them not to pick at their clothes. At least, that’s what our mother would do.
When you ask kids to do something, like a house chore or something random like taking the carrots and putting them with the rest of the vegetables, you expect them to do it. But, this is exactly why things go wrong.
We bet they told them to organize the carrots, yet didn’t specify where to put them. It’s really no wonder why this is the end result — carrots on every drawer handle and one happy kid in the middle of the kitchen.
Washing Your Sister
Family cleaning day could be a great experience, and oftentimes it is. However, it’s also an opportunity for siblings to get back at each other, or at least try to.
We don’t know how he managed to convince his older sister to climb into the washing machine, but it certainly looks like he was planning on having a field day with it. She’s lucky that their parents were around.
Toddlers can be like cats sometimes. They reach places that you never thought they could possibly get to. It’s like someone turned cheat mode on and now these rascals are on the loose.
This latest footage shows the damage done to two freshly baked sponge cakes. They simply wanted to make sure that both cakes were ready, and what’s a better way of doing it if not by biting into both.
If we didn’t know that there was a toddler involved, we would have assumed that something a lot more sinister happened. Although, we think that the word sinister can be easily applied to toddlers as well, on certain occasions.
In any case, when it suddenly gets all too silent and you’ve left your toddler all by themselves, you know it means trouble. In this case, this toddler had a sudden craving for butter, so they literally sunk their teeth in it.
In one word, this is a disaster in the bathroom. This proves once again that you can try as hard as you can to hide things from your kids, but somehow, they will always manage to find it and cause chaos.
At least, this might give their father a good excuse as to why he looks like a caveman when he shows up late for work. This is also an opportunity to stress the importance of buying vanity units that you can actually lock.
Let it Snow
Kids love snow. Actually, we’re not familiar with anyone who doesn’t like snow whether they’re a child or an adult. Sometimes, when they can’t wait for it to snow, they’ll come up with some very creative ways to imitate snowfall.
And by creative, we actually mean destructive. While tearing a hole in the beanbag and spreading its content all over the living room floor seems like a good idea as a kid, it’s less so if you’re an adult.
Kids’ imaginations are a wonderful thing, but sometimes they can buy into their make-believe. This is especially rough if they’re playing a game where they have to pick teams, and like in real life, sometimes they don’t get picked.
This is one of those things that people don’t tell you before you have a child, and that it is really hard to explain facts and rules to them when they’re being so irrational. But they can also be super cute which usually makes up for it!
Everything in the world is open for questioning when you’re a child, and they include things like “How did you know my name?”. The parent could take this as either a very deep philosophical question or one that is very annoying.
Your response to this it’s going to depend on the kind of day you’ve had. So take a deep breath and figure out how you want to answer this without making them feel bad for asking. It’s good to have a curious child!
Out of Context
It’s always fun when kids become inquisitive about the ways of the world. This is when you get to explain things like where babies come from and apparently where poop comes from as well. We hope you have picked up on our sarcasm by now…
It’s also the job of the parent to try to give an educational yet appropriate answer, given the child’s age. When kids ask awkward questions like the one above, we really don’t envy the parent that is required to answer them.
We have all seen that show Kids Say the Darndest Things, and there’s a reason why it gives us a good giggle. Kids generally haven’t learned how to filter what they say even in a public environment, and so sometimes they say things you wish they hadn’t.
These two kids are having a very mature conversation about female anatomy and feminine hygiene products. So if you have kids, we’re just warning you that you may experience an embarrassing moment or two, similar to this one.
One thing every person should know before they become a parent is that they’re going to have to repeat themselves regularly. Even for simple things like making sure that their kids have shut the door to the car.
It might be annoying, but it is definitely necessary. Otherwise, you may wind up with an interior to your vehicle that looks a little something like this. That’s not gonna be fun to clean out!
