Everyone knows that there's no such thing as too many pockets.
Speaking of creative solutions...
In fact lots of moms have to get creative when they take their kiddos outside of this house.
Other times you can be totally prepared...
Of course, not all curveballs are negative.
Because kids can be super destructive.
Other moms are big on the ingenuity but lower on the polish.

It turns out candles are often a surprising challenge.
We didn't have two 5 candles for my mom's birthday cake so I improvised 🎂 https://t.co/djZwvpc5C1— m (@m)1483327362.0
Also some kids have VERY specific feelings about their candles.
Seriously moms are amazing if you ever forget the thing you need.

Speaking of replacements...
The intended use of an item means nothing to a mom.
No matter where you go when you're a mom, you have to find ways to contain your tiny humans.
And because kids operate 100% on their own schedule...
Now to be fair, not all moms are geniuses.
