20+ Situations That Prove Parenting Is All About Patience

Nothing changes our lives as much as the appearance of a baby in the family. And while each kid is an individual, parents end up finding themselves in hundreds of situations that can be easily understood by those who have already become pros at this stressful science known as the relationship between kids and parents.

We at Bright Side keep stumbling upon tweets and photos that leave us saying, “Yes, my kid and I have definitely gone through this before.” The bonus feature at the end will give you visual proof that kids’ restlessness can exhaust anyone.

“My 13-year-old nephew packed his stuff in a shoebox to come to our house this weekend. ’Suitcases are too big,’ he said.”

“My son found a piece of brick outside, put it in a Ziploc bag for safekeeping, and brought it inside.”

L-lexicology: the science of words

“My 4-year-old gave my 1-year-old bags of baby wipes while we were still asleep. 5 bags worth...”

“Don’t leave the room, don’t make that mistake.”

“Stole one of these candies from my kid’s Christmas stash and learned the hard way they’re actually individually wrapped soaps.”

“Our life will never be the same after having a kid.”

“Here’s how my daughter cuts cheese.”

One careless statement and you become an antique.

“Today my daughter learned to play hide and seek.”

“Looked up to see my daughter’s snowsuit drying and nearly had a heart attack.”

It takes just one leaf to go from yummy to disgusting.

“Next time you hear someone talk about having kids, show them this.”

“I’ll never be ready for this.”

“My little daughter had to draw the wings and feet of the dragon as homework.”

“Why do we need mirrors when we reflect on our kids?”

“This is what happens when you have a son and a daughter.”

Maternal deceit

“My boy’s reaction to me putting lettuce in his lunchbox”

“I got a new coat for Christmas and my toddler got some new markers.”

“My son said he was trying to throw the remote onto the TV stand...”

The “L” in children definitely doesn’t stand for logic.

“My daughter learned how to write her first word and etched it into my dad’s chair that’s been in the family for years.”

Bonus: The dogs learned how exhausting it is to have 3 young kids in the house for 10 days.

What proof that parenthood is a complicated science do you have?
