12 Hilarious Parenting Fails That Prove It’s The Thought That Counts

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.

2. Or this dad who didn’t consider the bigger picture.

3. And this ace photographer dad.

4. This dad who bought his daughter Lily a special birthday cake.

5. This dad who should maybe stay away from the kitchen. And the jokes.

6. This overeager mom.

7. This mom who might have been distracted.

8. This mom got at least one thing right.

9. This mom who was in the holiday spirit.
