Not all of us are ready to have kids just yet, seeing as we can barely take care of ourselves. However, while we dream about our futures where we’re able to afford groceries for more than 3 days a week, have finally paid of our college loans, and settle down with someone who won’t ghost us, we also dream of the day we’ll have kids.
Thanks to the Internet, we’ve found out that it’s okay to be a crappy parent from time to time. So, if we end up being those parents who forget their kids birthday once or twice, it’s all good, guys. They’ll forgive us (or tell their therapist about it as adults).
The tea party my toddler invited me to feels more like a hostage situation.

Asked to switch seats on the plane because I was sitting next to a crying baby. Apparently, that's not allowed if the baby is yours.

Receptionist at pediatrician’s office: Child’s birth date and year?
Me, mother of 3: Wow ok I didn’t know there was going to be maths *nervous laughter* let’s see he’s four, it was late April or May, rainy I think, he’s a classic Gemini if that helps, this isn’t in his file?

Just dry shampoo'd and Febreze'd my kid on his way out the door so no I'm not really interested in your family's morning chore chart, Laura.

I didn't see Fast & Furious over the weekend, but I drove a toddler home on the brink of sleep an hour past naptime, so I got the gist of it

Son: Can you teach me about fractions? Me: Sure. I love 2/3 of my children.
