Am I the parent I dreamed I would be? No. I blame that totally on my kids. I didn’t expect them to not sleep, eat everything in the pantry yet nothing that I make for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I didn’t expect the house to be THIS dirty. I won’t even bring up the laundry discussion again.

How about using writing crazy school excuse notes that sound insane but are actually honest. How about your kid not being able to find their shoes before school? Anyone ever send their kid to school with 2 different shoes on?

Who else is a yeller? I have changed how I look at yelling at my kids. It’s not necessarily yelling. It’s more than I use my motivational speaking voice when certain subjects arise or events occur. It’s all how you look at it. Change your perspective.

Let’s talk about the hell clothing item known as socks. These things disappear and the kids are always asking for new socks though I know we have 230942934 pairs in random places throughout the house. So next time they ask, since it is the holiday season – just tell them to add it to their Christmas list. Speaking of – clean Christmas memes anyone?

Parenting Newborns

6 pounds 1 ounce. That is how much my first baby weight. She came home and she was 5 pounds 8 ounces. So little and OMG I was the one responsible for making sure she is kept alive. Parenting newborns memes are for those of us who had that gasp moment when realizing the responsibility that parenting is after the baby was born.

Tired Parents Memes

Another thing I had no idea about is that while the baby eventually does sleep thru the night, there is a great chance that you won’t. Tired parents memes are memes about parents who just need sleep.

And the co-sleeping thing. OMG, our third kid would not leave our bed. If we let him, he still would sleep smack in the middle of my husband and myself kicking all night long. If you long for sleep – these sleeping memes are for you.

My husband has always worked and while yes, he deserves him sleep but omg how does he sleep so well thru a crying baby. So many nights while on maternity leave, I wanted to just go back to work so that we could take turns. It finally happened, but man even with tweens and teens – my husband can sleep hard. It’s so unfair!

Parenting Fail Memes

There are times in your parenting journey that while you try your best, you just can’t win them all. These parenting fail memes are dedicated to those time. Like clipping your baby’s nails for the first time.

Who else was perplexed when your sweet child was born with these vicious nails. Then to learn from the nurse that they can’t clip the baby’s nails. My foggy brain from that time period swears the nurse mentioned that clipping nails is the equivalent to removing body parts and they can’t do that.

All that said, my parenting fail began early trying to accomplish this feat. By the 4th kid, I ended up doing something disgusting. I chewed my baby’s nails off because believe me when I say nobody wants to knick a precious sweet newborn baby with nail clippers!
