It’s not easy being a parent. Kids are time-consuming and demanding and if there’s one thing most parents have in common it’s that they’re just bone-tired. The fatigue and distraction can lead to all sorts of easy-to-make mistakes, but the way I see it, as long as your child makes it in one piece through the day and into bed at night, you are batting 1000.
These parents all had some fails but hey, they truly care, and that’s the important part.
1. Like this mom who only forgot one ingredient.
It's the little things in the universe that keep you humble and remind you that you're not half as smart as you think. I made a grilled cheese sandwich for the kids and forgot the cheese????????♀️. #ParentingFail #FML #momlife pic.twitter.com/JefVlmwPAL
