Every kid has scribbled all over something that they were definitely NOT supposed to touch at least once. There's some unknown force that draws little hands with a permanent marker to the most expensive surface in the room. And while a permanent marker and expensive object are already touching, it would be remiss not to go ahead and complete a masterpiece.
This is an unspoken rule known by all children.
One set of parents went viral after they chose to deal with this phenomenon in a hilariously clever way when they caught their kid in the act.
There's a lot of things that can go wrong when you live with small humans.
For example, there’s a lot of poop. Just a lot more poop to deal with. Poops unflushed in the toilet, for example.
Also, what happened here? What’s going on with the doer of the crime?
If you're able to keep your house clean with children, are you a superhero?
Because, seriously, there’s so much that can go wrong.
Mostly potty stuff, though.
The concept that things cost money doesn't really click with kids.
Why are you upset that we cut up all of your bills? They look so pretty on our tiny recreation of Mount Rushmore!
Aren’t you proud?
Sometimes parents just have got to improvise.
“If I didn’t care, my bathroom would smell like pee instead of flowers and pee” is a phrase that we would like embroidered on a doily that we can hang on our bathroom wall, please and thank you.
If anything, parenting has got to teach you how to make the best of situations.
It’s also a prime incubator for humor. This post is captioned, “Also it goes great with vodka, so there’s that. 🍋🍋🍋#lemonadeFTW”. We’re 100% here for this kind of innovation.
