A moment you'll live a hundred times: your kid will say something so damned funny, but you can't let them see you giggle, because... Game. Over.
"My son is two and was being a sass mouth. I told him that I was going to whip his butt. He looked at me and cocked his head to the side and said 'you better pack a lunch'. I had him go to his room so he would not see me laugh."

Sometimes you just have to smack 'em with the truth...
"I have two biracial children and a white daughter (ghost white). My daughter refuses to be white, she calls herself light tan. She is always saying things like 'mom you are so white not like the rest of us', or 'mom you are so white I thought you were a ghost', or my personal fav: 'Mom I can see you in the dark'..... I really don't know how to tell her that she is white like me!"
Hey, kettle. You're white... LOL
It's not really legal to put kids on a leash, right?

"You're so pretty. I'm glad I made you." -- Real Mom
Of course she takes after you...
