There are so many people who dream of having a family, so when they decide it's time to start having kids, I'm sure it's an exciting time. But, do any of us really know what we're in for? We forget how weird we were as children and tell ourselves the same lie everyone else does — my child will be totally normal.
Then that sentiment is challenged day after day, from them wanting to eat Vasaline to sticking things in their noses. Kids will forever test the patience . of their parents, and we have the proof.
At Least She's Reading?
This would be the moment I would wonder where they got all that flexibility from and is there a possibility that this child might end up being a vigilante superhero someday?
So, That's A No?
This kid feels very strongly about not brushing their teeth... or he's worried about losing that toothbrush. Here's the thing. The kid could have brushed their teeth twice over in the amount of time it took them to pull this off.
What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?
Honestly, being a taco is probably an accurate description of where a lot of us end up. I'm certainly a lot closer to being a taco than I ever was to be a doctor or pilot.
This Seems Suspicious
Everyone is just trying to have a good time. If you take your kid to a fun Lego exhibition at your local library and this is what they build, there are some interesting conversations to be had.
This Kid Has Their Mom All Figured Out
Is it possible to feel really seen and understood, but also offended at the same time? If my child brought this to me I would feel loved and also really mad.
Because No One Needs Couch Cushions
Who do you think ruins more things around your home, pets or kids? Having nice things and sharing your space with children or animals are not two things that go together. They're both destructive but oh so cute.
Maybe Fashion Is His Passion
He saw his opportunity to let his creativity soar. The way this display was set up was clearly not satisfactory, and something needed to be done about it. It could have been worse — at least he kept everything folded.
How Do These Things Even Happen?
Doing dishes is not something that most of us enjoy doing, or even have time to do! But now you have to clean a whole drawer and all the cutlery inside it, all in the name of mac and cheese, which I guess is a good cause.
Just Living Their Best Life
Honestly, this kid is probably some Instagram famous influencer messaging people asking for free stuff. It's important to remember our roots, even if it is embarrassing our family in the Apple Store.
What Is With Kids And Lego?
Is all Lego secretly evil and it takes over the sanity of any child who plays with it? Where do they come up with this stuff? My guess would be watching HBO while their parents think they're sleeping.
The Look Of Defeat
To be fair, I think this child feels bad for what they've done. That is a lot of powdered sugar that is everywhere and I'm sure it is EVERYWHERE, if you know what I mean. This is so uncomfortable... and sticky.
Look At All That Icing
What happens when you are faced with the realization that your child might be really weird? I can only hope that there was a normal kid around to finish up all that delicious sugary goodness.
This Seems A Little Dramatic
This is what the average adult feels like on the inside almost every day, especially while grocery shopping. I miss the days when lying down in a grocery cart was socially acceptable.
This Is Totally Normal
Drinking out of the pet dish is something that a lot of children do. It's like a rite of passage into adulthood. There is puberty, your first crush, and drinking from the dog's bowl.
That Poor Plant
Was it a good idea to leave a hole punch out where little, grubby hands could reach it? Maybe they saw their parents crafting and just wanted to know what it felt like.
Well That's Just Great
Every mom wants their kid's feet in their face, this is just a fact of life. Real talk, though, these will become some of the most cherished memories of your childhood.
That Is A Serious Threat
Cats are ruthless and they're not going to care where those cat toys are. When they want their catnip, they get it, no matter the cost. But, if this is the price to pay for food, then it is a price well paid.
This Is Very Scary
It looks like a scene out of Alien before it pops out of the person's body to wreak havoc. I suppose this is the child version of that, making it impossible to try any new clothes on.
There Will Be Moments When They Make You Really Proud
Like when they show up to princess day dressed up like a hotdog. Who are we to question what someone thinks a princess is? Just let her live her life.
He Sounds Very Serious
Kids can be mean, too, when they want to be. They have this special way of finding our greatest fear or weakness and praying on it until everything gets really uncomfortable.
There Is A Lot To Take In Here
This little guy is threatening his dad with a knife because he took away the delicious Vasaline he was eating. You gotta pick and choose your battles, and it looks like this one was chosen for him.
She Looks So Sleepy
The things children will do to avoid bedtime is outrageous. Did she really think that wearing a potty training seat was going to buy her more time to be awake?
How is this even possible without some serious health side effects? Is this child ok? How big was this piece of chicken?! How did they get it out? These are just some of the things I would love to know.
Kids Are Just Like Cats
You can buy them all the nicest presents in the world, but they're just going to want to play in the box it came in. It's an unwritten, universal law of all things small and cute.
Guess It's Time For A New Computer
This is soul-crushing to look at. Knowing the way the universe works, that's probably permeant marker. But even if it wasn't, how do you get it off without ruining the computer?!
No One Wants This Surprise
There is no surprise that has ever come out of a toilet that anyone has ever wanted. I'm not a worldly person, but this something I am pretty confident about.
Someone Needed A Nap
Apparently, children have no problem going to sleep anywhere that isn't in their bed. That's probably why this little girl is so tired, from all the sass she gave her parents at bedtime.
That Is A Sad Face
He isn't allowed to eat the wood chips and that makes him upset. Honestly, I love eating food I shouldn't, like too much chocolate and pizza, so I get this feeling.
The Dog Looks Guilty
This guy made the rookie mistake of taking a nap while his daughter was coloring. He didn't even know this had happened until he went outside and his neighbor pointed it out to him.
Kids Are A Riot
This little one told their parents that they didn't know where their shoes were and that they had looked everywhere for them. Maybe they just didn't look in that room.
