Also, if you leave them in there, will your child see them so many times that he will eventually eat them? Keep them on a rotation and let's find out. Let's just hope that they don't start to grow some sort of mold. You don't want to kill your child, you just want them to eat their veggies.
Being a parent is hard. You have to discipline your kid when they are doing something that you would totally do yourself if you could.
You scream, "Don't eat an entire packet of sugar!" but wouldn't it be nice to do the same? Or how about when they have a meltdown? Mommy wants to have a break down too, so get over it kid! Life is hard!
Having a kid is a gift. A gift that won't stop crying and talking and snotting and poking and...on second thought: Can I return that gift? Please tell me that I can also get a refund because this gift is expensive AF!
Being a mom means that you are a mom, teacher, cleaning lady, drill sergeant and best friend all in one. It would be nice to have some help every once and a while? Hey kids, do your mom a solid. Change the toilet paper roll and put the dishes in the dish washer every once and a while. You got that? She birthed you. She made you into a thing so you owe her big time.
Dinnertime can be an all out battle. Getting your kid to eat something is a huge accomplishment. And then somewhere it flips and you can't get them to stop eating you out of house and home. If you have to go grocery shopping one more time.... How did they become a bottomless pit over night?
And not only does a joke like this say a lot about your child: It says a lot about the parents too. You better watch what you say in front of them because your little one is like a little parrot. You say %&*#, then they say %&*# right back. And you don't want anyone calling child protective services. Not yet, at least.
Being a mom also means living in your car. Driving your kids to play practice, dance, soccer, basketball... I suggest you make a nice little comfy bed in the backseat and take a snooze whenever time allows. This is going to be your life now until they go off to college and you move them into their dorms. You may as well make the best of it.
When was the last time you puked? It's been a while, right? Why is it that kids puke all the time? And they never get it in the toilet, it always winds up on you and it's always some insane color. How did their little body produce to much, at that speed and in that color. Science.
You have to be very specific when you ask your kids to help you clean. If you don't, you'll end up with dish soap shooting out of the dishwasher and paint all over the walls. How is this helping??? Thanks for helping mommy and now mommy is going to go in her room to cry now.
Throwing the wrong things away can ruin your child's life. Here is great guide for what you can and cannot throw away. The most important rule is the last one. If it says, "I Love Mommy" you are keeping it. Anything dad related, chuck it.
You have to eat it. You have to! You start to sweat. Your heart is beating a mile a minute. Then you close your eyes, grin and bear it and pray for the best. You can do it. You are a mom. You can do anything.
