Post from Wifegrit — The Things a Parent Will Do
When I think back to B.K., (before kids), I remember thinking “I will never do that!” as I watched parents, for example, drag their kid out of a store. Then I became a parent. And I now understand and have sympathy for many of those ridiculous situations. In other words, I have been there and I have done that.
As a parent, the situations you can find yourself in, and how you react is sometimes unpredictable. And hilarious…
Yes, I have left a cart of groceries in the store because of an explosive diaper.
Yes, I have laid my baby to sleep in his crib, jumped to the floor and crawled out of the room, and crawled back in to check on him. (This was with my first child.)
Yes, I have crawled out a window, onto the roof of our house to retrieve a “blown away” Pokémon card.
Yes, I have worn a robe in the car to drop off my child at school so we wouldn’t be late.
Yes, we have driven around the beltline for 2 hours to put a child to sleep.
Yes, I have eaten hidden chocolate in my closet. (“What’s that in your mouth mom?” “Ah, oh..nothing.”)
Yes, I have been in the bathroom as my child dialed 911. “Look what we learned in school today!”
Now it is your turn. I would love for you to share your funny stories.
