Your kid doesn't always outgrow things...
"I have always made my daughters Halloween costumes. She is now almost 30 and she sends me measurements for her and her husband-- and I still make their costumes.... I thought they outgrew this sort of thing." -- Real Mom
Just say "no"...
So young. So talented.
"My five month old daughter basically does keg stands on my boobs while nursing." -- Real Mom
At least you know she's ready for coed life...
They're lucky the even eat...
"Smores for dinner are healthy right?" -- Real Mom
Chocolate is an antioxidant; graham crackers are fiber; and marshmallows, well...
Sometimes your ears/eyes betray you...
"I know that they did not just.... " -- Real Mom
But 99.99999999% of the time your ears/eyes did not betray you. Sigh...
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
There are moments of pride... in one's momself...
"You're so pretty. I'm glad I made you." -- Real Mom
Of course she takes after you...
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?
Momma lays down the law. Always.
"The more you ask the longer you wait. " -- Real Mom
