These last few months of the year are the most hectic for parents with Halloween; not just the day itself but also the copious amount of sweets your children devour for weeks after and of course Christmas, their lists are long and their excitement uncontrollable. The holidays are inching closer and closer so you may be feeling overwhelmed, just know you’re not alone and we hope these parents posts help put a smile on your face!
We all were at some point.
Me: Yes, you were in my belly.
*tears in her eyes*
…why did you eat me?

This is… different
Before I became a parent, I never thought I would break up a fight at a living room guinea pig fashion show, yet here we are.

Mama, mom, mum
My toddler’s new thing is to say “Mama” on repeat for 20 minutes straight and I’m not supposed to respond, unless of course I am supposed to respond, in case any of you were thinking of skipping the birth control

Since I refuse, 5 was wondering if anyone would like to play “hammers” with her. She has a hammer and you run. So anyway, let me know.

4: Let's hunt turkeys, Daddy.
Me: How do we do that?
4: Put up a big sign that says, "Come here, Turkeys!"
I might be raising Elmer Fudd.

That’s where they’ve gone
Tell your teenager to clean them out of their room now so you will have enough cups and dishes for Thanksgiving.

I’m sure you can relate…
When my son was born, I knew that I would love him forever, with a slight break between 12 and 21.

How many of these parents social media posts can you relate to? If you have any of your own feel free to drop them in the comments, we’d love to hear them!
On a more serious note, some parents may be able to afford more luxurious presents for their children this Christmas. If you’re fortunate to be in this situation then we urge you not to say “Santa brought them all for you”. Children from other families then start to think Santa doesn’t like them as much ruining their Christmas experience. Either way, we wish you all a fantastic Christmas!
