For those that aren’t yet parents, remember: if your children can be making a mess, they probably are making a mess. At least these two sisters kept it low-key when they realized their mother wasn’t paying any attention. They just grabbed a handful of crayons and started decorating each other.
Actually, it looks like the younger sibling got the brunt of it, but there’s probably some on the older sister as well. They seem like they’re having a good time, and that kind of mess will just take a little bit of time with a washcloth.
Choosy Kids Cover Themselves in Jif
Is it mud? Is it paint? God forbid – isn't it something from the toilet? None of those, thankfully. This gal decided for some reason to cover herself in peanut butter, and we can't see she looks all that unhappy about it. It was probably pretty fun, and you can't deny that it would be an interesting tactile experience.
On the other hand, it's going to be difficult to wash off, and the parents are bound to keep the peanut butter out of reach unless they're actively making a sandwich. Even then, they might take steps to make sure this doesn't happen again.
This is just a picture of a kid enjoying himself as much peanut butter as he can shovel down his gullet before Mom puts away the phone. We've done the exact same thing – and we don't care who knows it. Peanut butter is great, and you should eat it at every possible opportunity.
One of the big issues with it is when you start to run out – there's still clearly plenty of delicious peanut butter left around the edges of the plastic jar. Knives don't work, fingers aren't long enough. Maybe the solution is to let your kids at it – they won't leave any of that good stuff left by the end of the day.
It Looks Like it Was Taken in a Lab
Going through it quickly, this child apparently had a “one toy out at a time” rule that she was certainly not following. The mom was wondering how long it would take to put everything away, but we're wondering a few things. First off, this framing is way too professional. Like, it seems like it was edited.
The lighting is perfect, the placement is perfect. All of the toys are, for the most part, stood up properly and set out in their own little space. And does the kid not have ANY colorful toys? It smacks of a set-up. Yes, we're saying it – this was staged.
Look Mom, We're Laundry!
Get them started young, and the parents might be able to enjoy the kids doing their own laundry once they get old enough to understand how the machines actually work. These two tykes are getting a pretty good start, but the next lesson will have to be about what does, and doesn't, go inside the laundry baskets.
Soon they'll be separating all the colors and figuring out the joys of folding as they give Mom and Dad a chance to kick back a little bit.
