They just can't even
Nobody said that being a parent would be easy, yet there’s an urge in some people to procreate to continue the species, whether to feel fulfilled or simply because you want something to give your love to. You can read all the books and websites and constantly ask for advice from other parents, but nothing can prepare you for temper tantrums over the weirdest things, sibling feuds, and even playing with their own bodily fluids.
Now that we have social media, it’s far easier to explain to child-free people what’s really going on in a hectic household filled with children. I don’t think these tweets are making anyone want to have kids of their own.
Life’s Hard, Then You Die
7 [year-old] – You worked way harder than me today, dad.
Me: I always will, lil buddy.
7: Not when you’re dead.
Me: (Whispers) Jesus Christ. (@dailydairydiary)
My kid just ran full force into the wall twice because he wanted to. I’m just gonna start using his college fund to buy wine. (@buriedwithkids)
My kid threatened to hold her breath until I gave her dessert. She’s now passed out on the kitchen floor. I don’t negotiate with terrorists. (@Playing_Dad)
