With our new chain link fence up, I felt confident leaving my 2 tots to play in the yard while I did dishes. 15 min. later, I found my 2 yr old missing. Just then my doorbell rang. I ran to the front door to find my son in the arms of our local police officer. He said my son was sitting on the street curb, throwing rocks as he drove by. He mastered the fence first try!
Mother was going to take 3 year old daughter and baby daughter to the mall. Got the 3 year old dressed, packed the diaper bag, etc., and took the bus to the mall. Was calmly walking through the mall when 3 year old asked mother why she left the baby at home. Mother panics, has to wait for bus....gets home and the baby is sound asleep on the bed where she had left her!!
I woke up one morning and my then 4 yr. old daughter came out of the bathroom with a dress on and asked "Mommy, do I look beautiful"? Of course I said yes, and then I realized she cut all but the middle strip off her hair! Then I looked in the sink and saw white fluff... That's when the cat walked by and I saw that she had given her a hair cut too!!!
I have a 5 year old son. At the time this happened he was 2. I had some lollipops in my purse, along with my tampons. He asked, "Mama, can I have a lollipop?" Not even thinking, I say yeah. Well, you guessed it: tampon in the mouth! Then he comes to me with it still in, all swollen, mumbling, Mama, this is a bad lollipop!" I started rolling.
On a 6 hr trip home from D.C. one day, my 5 yr old and her 11 yr old sister were finishing their lunches in the back seat. I turned around when the 11 yr old yelled, "Mom, she's snorting Coke". Her younger sister had one straw up each nostril and had just sucked the Coke through the straw and up her nose. It was the funniest thing I'd ever seen or heard.
I was about 8 years old. I had a sore throat. I told my mom that my throat hurt and felt real "sctatchy" like sandpaper. She took a Qtip and coated it with hand lotion and told me to open my mouth and proceded to coat my throat. I still tast the lotion everytime I think about it.
After getting out of jail for selling drugs to undercover cops, my 40 y/o brother-in-law has to get a job as part of his parole(his first job). After he gets his first paycheck I get a phone call asking me who this FICA is and why they were getting so much of his money.
My daughter called me one day from work to settle an argument between her and her husband. The conversation started by her saying, "don't worry mom I know but he doesn't believe me."
My son-in-law gets on the phone and says "Mom, if you put mayonnaise,eggs and pickles in tuna doesn't it counteract mercury poisoning?"
What do you say to that....can't pick family.
I took my kids to Chuckee Cheeses. I set the 3 yr old loose in the sky tubes & kept the 2 yr old w/ me. I waited. And waited for her to slide down at the exit. Nothing. 20 mins ltr I'm panicked. I hand the 2 yr old to a stranger & go up in the tubes. I run the course & she's not there. Now I've lost 2 kids. When I slide down, both are w/ the stranger crying. I'm the worst.
My wife and I gave a long list of rules to the kids about our brand new hot tub. One afternoon we came home to find our kids and their friends doing cannonballs into the hot tub from the roof of our house. Our oldest was 7 and was surprised at how upset we were and with complete sincerity pointed out that it wasn't on the list of rules.
