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."

Kid w/a TKO
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?
"OMG I can only control myself!" -- Real Mom
Now would be a good time to do those deep breathing exercises...
Well this is less-than-comfortable...
"Get your face out of my butt!" -- Real Mom
Yeah... we got nothin' here...
Sometimes you need to channel your inner Buddha...
"Is this going to matter to me in a year?" -- Real Mom
Probably not. You just need to get through the next 365 days...
It's a sentiment we can all relate to...
"Are you kidding me?" -- Real Mom
Kids do some amazing things, don't they?
You can't fight every day. No, seriously...
"Pick my battle, pick my battle, pick my battle!" -- Real Mom
You want to win the war, Momma!
Momma lays down the law. Always.
"The more you ask the longer you wait. " -- Real Mom
Ever wonder how you're able to "mom"?
"I can't believe that I have kept her alive this long!" -- Real Mom
It's because you're a rock star, momma. Rock. Star.
When they're quiet, something's up...
"My son was upstairs being quiet. When I went to investigate, he was in his new kitty's litter box, seated, in his footie pajamas treating it like a sandbox. Throwing the dirty litter out." -- Real Mom
Perhaps it was a bit of role playing... Ugh...
