My daughter insists wearing a jacket will make her cold because she only wears it when she is cold. **EDIT:** Thank you for the silver strangers!


My toddler watched at least an hour of an animated movie populated entirely by talking animals. Suddenly, a giraffe came onscreen and said something. My kid stood up, pointed at the TV, and angrily yelled, “What?! Giraffes can’t talk!”


My son, who was 8 at the time, and an only child, carved his very long name into the toliet seat. Then claimed he didn’t do it. Lol.


My 4 yo son just the other day spilled his water bottle on the floor. I told him to get paper towels to wipe it up. He does. Then I told him to throw the towels in the trash. He wrings them back out onto the floor before he throws them in the trash. <facepalm>


I’m amazed at how many times I’ve had to say “don’t lick that”.
