I'm a stay at home mom to a 5 year old and 2 year old twins. Life is what all parents will say, "hectic." 

These pictures sum up parenting without really needing a title. Someone is usually crying or making a mess. Every once in a while, everyone is even happy.

At least they didn't "open them". As long as they stay that flat you can put them away. My little one did the same thing but did even unfold them...

Can we say "at least all of them are sick and you don't have to deal with this like for 3 weeks and one after another"? Or am I totally wrong here as a non-parent?

Community Member

Def not wrong. It's so hard when they are all sick at the same time, but I def like it better than prolonging my nights up with a sick child. This way, it's over and done with so when I or my husband catch their colds, it is when they are starting to feel better! UGH!!! lol

OMG, we had one of those racks with the cloth bins. Our 3yo destroyed it. I mean he literally pulled it apart to bits to where it was totally unsalvageable. I hope this one is more heavy duty!

I've mentioned that before already, commenting another similar article, but the way the parenting is presented nowadays makes me never want to have kids. I understand that this photo compilation is supposed to be funny and "real" and truthful, but what I get from it is that as a mother you are always tired, messing with poop in one way or another, your house is a kingdom of dirt and mess and is full of neverending crying for no obvious reason. I find all this repulsive. Not to mention I wonder if the kids will be happy in a few years that photos of their poop, peeing, them pooping and peeing went to the web... I know nothing bad is showed, but still, you wouldn't post yourself on the toilet that eagerly, would you?
