It’s a well-known fact that children are the greatest.
It is an equally well-known fact that children are horrible. Now that doesn’t mean we dislike our children by any means. Oh no, no, no… parents of the world generally agree that the good times outweigh the bad. But sometimes, its really hard to see that when you’re in The Moment.
The Moment I’m referring to is that time when you want to scream “OMG WHAT THE #&*^ HAVE YOU DONE?!” but don’t, because you’re a Good Parent. Or even the time when you DO because you’re a Good Parent who has lost their patience – it happens to the best of us!
In fact, I am beyond shocked that this lady didn’t freak out when she came out of the bathroom to see her entire house antiqued. Her Calm-as-Carol-Brady demeanor leads me to believe she is A) the nicest lady ever, B) totally drunk on some Wine-o Wednesday features or C) this video is fake.
In fact, children doing stuff like that is the basis of an amazingly great website entitled Sh*t My Kids Ruined. Full of reader-submitted photos and stories, you can look for hours at the horrors other parents endure while telling yourself, “My kids aren’t so bad!” Until, that is, they do something like that to you. Then you’ll run to your computer and post the evidence while you wipe away your tears.
Here are a few cringe-worthy glimpses into the lives of other parents:
“My son, Levi, ruined his best friend, Logan, with a Sharpie. Thank GOD his mom Tina has an amazing sense of humor!” – Erin
“My daughter decided to create an art piece on her bedroom door. I am glad that her ‘underwear cushion family’ seems to be a happy one.” – Judith M.
“A few moments later I hear a *SMACK* and crying and then lots of ‘OH MY GOSH DAD IS GOING TO BE SO MAD!!!!!!!’ My heart dropped.” – Bethany
