It’s no secret that parenting is no easy feat, ever. And for those who have been through it, you know exactly what we mean. Despite a parent’s best intentions, things can go, well, a bit awry. However some parents do have a sense of humor, as they’ve shared their epic fails with the world. Just take a look at some parents lowest point that you’ll most likely laugh at.
“My friend had her daughters at a zoo when she heard, ‘Ma’am, there’s a lemur on your baby.'” Oh, well we suppose stranger things have happened when you’re in a packed zoo with a zoo of your own to look over. Girl, we’ve all been there.
“Once upon a time, I sent my daughter and my husband off to buy her some nice new clothes.” I mean, their daughter does look like a superstar so we’re gonna with, that’s a win? If she’s happy and comfortable, what more could you ask for? Plus, you can always use this photo as blackmail when she gets older. Especially now that it’s viral, she’ll never live it down.
“Nine hour flight to Budapest. No problem. We’re an experienced family of travelers.” We’re just lucky that his partner decided to snap a photo instead of helping their child out. I mean, priorities matter. Clearly. No one said flying with kids was going to be easy, but I don’t think they ever mentioned just how much of a nightmare it really could be.
No Health Insurance Coverage Needed
“My daughter’s nose was bleeding in the car and this was the only thing I had handy…she called it a ‘cotton stick’. :)” Well, at least the bleeding stopped and you didn’t need to use your health insurance coverage. We’ll chalk this up to a win. And guys, there’s no need to be ashamed when it comes to using tampons. Amanda Bynes made them cool in the flick She’s the Man, Channing Tatum anyone? That’s what I thought.
A Mix Up
“Mixed up pajama day and picture day. Son was not pleased.” Her son’s face is absolutely priceless! I can’t stop laughing, I might need my own health insurance coverage. This much laughing can’t be good for me. But hey, hello six-pack. We’re sure you’ve seen this photo circulating on social media quite a lot – this kid’s facial expression is the world’s greatest meme.
“Instead of millennium falcons or fire trucks, my 8-year old builds Lego bars with drunk patrons.” Kids these days. What can we say? Society is changing and kids are getting older from a young age. He’s ready for the real world now.
“Took my daughter out for a nice dinner.” Who else has done this while out at dinner? Come on, people, don’t pretend like it’s not true. Sometimes eating dinner is just exhausting, no matter how hungry you are. Or maybe her daughter dropped a fry and was trying to stick to the three second rule. That could also be a strong possibility!
Hey, Girl, Hey
“My boss brought his son to work today.” When the bosses kid shows up, you better play nice. Although in this case, it might be easier than you previously thought.
“Would this be considered bad parenting?” We’re sure that people are torn 50-50 on this matter. Can’t say we blame them, although this might actually be a good idea. Excuse me!
“I bought a new lamp for my daughter. It was a mistake.” Minnie Mouse has never been more terrifying. This is one night-light no parent ever wants to buy – their child is forever scarred by everything Disney. Maybe not liking Disney is actually a blessing in disguise. Then you don’t need to watch Frozen 10 times a day, every day.
“Friend on Facebook sent their kid to school on picture day with the wrong shirt.” Is it wrong if you can’t stop giggling at this? I mean, we’re all grown-ups here.
“Found my husband like this getting our one year old to bed.” When the kid is sleeping, so are you. That’s the golden rule of parenting. Although in this case, the need for sleep hit dad pretty hard. If you’re a parent then you definitely understand what this dad is going through. And if you’re not parent, here’s a little glimpse into your future.
“This is how dad dressed daughter for the daycare. Who needs a shirt in summer anyway?” Aww man, I can’t even be mad at dad! This is the cutest thing we have ever laid eyes on. Forgetting to put a shirt on under the overalls is such a rookie mistake.
“He really wanted to go on that ride. I’m hoping this isn’t his first memory.” I mean, that elephant does look a bit menacing. So the kid and parent aren’t really at fault. Okay?
“I left my 7-year old daughter unattended for 10 minutes to make dinner. Big mistake.” Oh man, that little girl is going to need health insurance coverage when she starts peeling off the tape. Ouch!
