Imagine it's Sunday morning. You've been allowed to sleep in as long as you want, and you have no chores or responsibilities all day. There's fresh fallen snow on the ground. Your mom makes Cinnamon rolls and serves you breakfast. But you're almost 3, so you are blind with rage.

If you took a kids book out of the library, and then it turns out that the library wants the book back, but you can’t find the book anywhere, where would you look for it? Just, you know, out of curiosity…

While doing her history homework, my daughter asked me what I knew about Galileo.
I said, he’s just a poor boy from a poor family.

My least favorite advice when I tell someone I am struggling to get my toddler to do something is “make it into a game!” I tired that, now my entire life has been made into a game, Im doing voices for his diapers, making his breakfast do stand up routines. Release me from this.

Love that my daughter has her own little morning routine (watches a few episodes of Bluey while eating the $60 worth of fruit that I'd hoped would last the entire week)

When my daughter was four she tried to say she had the "heebie jeebies" but it came out "Hebrew Bee Gees" and that's how it's been pronounced in my house for the last ten years

Dads will slam kitchen cabinets and loudly rifle through pots and pans and then whisper-yell at the kids to be quiet because mom’s still sleeping.

A child repeatedly and frantically yelling “mom” could mean they are seriously hurt or it could mean they need to tell their mom what their new favorite color is.

I have to apologize for pretending to be a good father on here. I treated my 7 yo awful today and I'm not proud of it. I should not have asked him to take a shower this morning after his last shower was 5 days ago. I am sorry for my horrible actions.

As a parent you give all your love to this tiny, helpless human and watch in awe and wonder as they grow and come into their own and ignore your desperate cries for toilet paper from the bathroom

We took our kids out to eat. My 5yo as she put her menu down, "I'll have the chef's special." The waitress with a blank stare, "ummm... we don't have one." My 5yo, "guess it's not a fancy restaurant." My 5yo always putting me on the spot.

My 7YO changed her favorite color to teal, now our four year investment in pink is worth zilch

My husband has the flu and came down while I was scrambling to get the kids ready for school to tell me the house is a mess so I made him some cyanide with a side of tea.

My 5-year-old busted in my bedroom door this morning and yelled “BOO!”
She was disappointed when I didn’t jump.
She said she REALLY wants to scare me because she’s never seen me scared.
Then she left.
Now I’m actually scared.

In 2014 I was in my studio in Toronto one weekend and there was a kid’s birthday party next door and they played Let It Go on repeat and I thought, annoyed, “that’s a lot of times to listen to this song” but now I have a 3 year old and truly: here I stand in the light of day

Heartwarming: 33-month-old’s new thing is finding small, choking-sized rocks and telling his 9-month-old brother to “open up for a potato!”

I told my 5yo that he could have some popcorn if he promised to listen to me more and his response was “what did you say” so we’re off to a great start

The parenting books never prepared me for how invested I would be in first grade gossip

Me tucking my son in: “I love you so much, I wouldn’t trade you for anything in the world!”
Him, 7: “Not even a Domino’s pizza delivery car?!”

This morning I overheard a dad tell his daughter that her dinner would contain "evening blueberries" and he later whispered to me that because she'll eat all fruits but no veggies, "evening blueberries" is house code for "peas." Beatify him.
