Ahhh, childhood. A time of such innocence, such wonder, such…well, such a load of crap.
Kids have it made. They can throw tantrums, take naps, and cause more destruction with a granola bar than ever thought imaginable and still have warm meals made for them every single day. And did I mention the naps?
And while most are innocent and wonderful, do not be fooled. Many of them know exactly what they’re doing…and that we’ll still love them even if they’re actually kind of awful at times.
Of all the things a person doesn’t want to lose and yet seem to get lost all the time, wedding rings might be at the top of the list. So when this new mom lost track of her ring, she looked everywhere for it. Obviously.
And of course, she got her husband in on the search. But still no luck.
And then it dawned on them…
“We decided to have our baby x-rayed just in case,” dad wrote.
Let’s face it. Adulthood is overrated at times. Sure, there are the perks of being independent and having freedom and blah, blah, blah. But sometimes being an adult is just, well, kind of disappointing.
If the pictures of “parenting” featured on many stock image sites are to be believed, having kids is all bright smiles, bright kitchens, and bright clothes. But, as anyone who has kids (or anyone who has ever even seen a kid) can attest…this is all a lie.
Over at the site It’s Like They Know Us, moms with a sarcastic flair can submit their favorite, most ridiculous stock image of motherhood accompanied by an acerbic caption. The contrast between the pseudo-serenity in the imagery and the biting mockery in the commentary is perfect.
