Sometimes we feel like we have everything under control, until all of the sudden, we realize we don’t. Unfortunately, most of the time this realization comes a bit too late! Take the case of one mom who had been cutting her son’s hair for years without incident.
It only took one time, a good 18 years in, for her to forget to put the guard on the clippers and accidentally shave off a bit of his hair. We’re sure he wasn’t too thrilled with this haircut, but at least it was after his high school graduation. Moral of the story? Always double check your clippers before you start. Always.
The Mom Who Should Have Trusted Her Gut
Attention parents: always double-check the school schedule before sending your child to school in their pajamas! This mom learned that lesson the hard way after her daughter insisted she had simply forgotten it was pajama day at school, since she was so busy. Nothing like pulling at a multi-tasking mama's heart strings to get what you want!
In the end, little Mini had gotten her days mixed up, and arrived at school in her cute Christmas PJs to find all of her classmates dressed totally regularly. We can assume she was a bit embarrassed, but we're also sure she was comfortable, and maybe that's all that matters in the end.
The Mom With a Big Mess to Clean Up
We're all just trying our best to be engaging, enthusiastic parents! But when it comes to doing at-home activities with your toddler, things can sometimes get a little messy. One mom learned this the hard way when she turned her back for just a minute and turned back to find a concoction of shaving cream and glue in her little one's hair.
While it may be tempting to blame the toddler, we all know that these things happen in the blink of an eye. So, the next time you embark on a crafting adventure with your little one, be sure to keep an extra close eye on the supplies, and maybe keep the shaving cream out of reach!
The Mom Who Had Her Pie and Ate It, Too
As a parent, we sometimes have to make choices that may not seem totally honest but are for the greater good. And sometimes, the greater good is enjoying a slice of pie for breakfast in peace. This mom, when asked by her son if that was what she was doing — it absolutely was— replied that she was instead eating a fruit casserole.
What are the chances, said son hates casserole! This way, mama got to eat her pie both without judgment and without sharing. It may seem a bit crafty, but in parenthood, you've got to do what you've got to do. Morning dessert included.
The Mom With the Stinky Binky
Just when you think you've got parenthood all figured out, your baby throws you a curveball — or, in this case, a smelly surprise. Generally, you know the drill. You change the diaper, change the clothes, give a bath, and voila! Your baby smells like a sweet little angel again. But what do you do when the smell lingers on?
In the case of this mom, the answer was not what she expected. After all her efforts, her baby still smelled. With some investigation, she found the true culprit — the binky holder. Who knew that little thing could cause such a stink? Lesson learned — never underestimate the power of a binky holder. And always be ready for the unexpected as a parent.
