Every parent tries to give their children as much love and care as possible. But it’s not always easy.

We at Bright Side know that being a parent is a very hard thing and even the most responsible people sometimes make funny mistakes. And at the end of the article, there is a bonus proving that adults are just big kids.

How would you feel several months without sleep?

When you leave your child alone with dad:

“My friend had her daughter at a zoo when she heard, ‘Ma’am, there’s a lemur on your baby.’”

“I swear we’re good parents!”

“Accidentally sent my son to school with his newly bought ugly Christmas sweater. Didn’t realize what Santa was doing until his kindergarten teacher pointed it out when I picked him up after school.”

“I was spitting sunflower seeds out the window on the way home but I guess they found their way back in the car...”

Fathers see things differently.

“Instead of Millennium Falcons or fire trucks, my 8-year-old son builds Lego bars with drunk patrons.”

“My girlfriend randomly took a couple pictures of me at the grocery store. Only later did we notice...”

“9-hour flight to Budapest. No problem. We’re an experienced family of travelers.”

“Decided to have dinner with my daughter.”

It’s very hard to watch children while resting.

Hopefully, the kid won’t notice anything.

“Note to self: don’t let baby fall asleep on you after you spray tan if you do not want said baby to have a half ‘tanned’ face the next morning.”

“I thought I could trust my children with markers.”

When you don’t want to choose between a hobby and being a parent:

When you light all 35 of your own candles then accidentally touch your child with the end of the lighter:

Children have their own ways of attracting attention.

When you’re so happy that you forget you have to look out for the toddler:

When one of them starts to think you might be out to get them:

Being a father is not easy either.

This is what happens when mom is sick:

When your husband meets you at the school for parents’ night with the kids & fails to notice his 4-year-old took her skirt off and left it at home leaving her in see-through tights and Hello Kitty underwear:

“Great shot! Let’s hope mom never sees it.”

Children never like these tricks.

Here are the parents of the year:

And here are the fathers of the new generation:

Bonus: “Note to self: next year remember to open the doors before tying the Christmas tree to the roof of the car. Can’t just open the windows...”
