Life is full of surprises. Sometimes things go your way and sometimes they don’t. Some things, however, are pretty much guaranteed to be a problem. As a mom of four I went ahead and outlined five of my least-favorite, never-to-be-trusted items. Consider yourself warned.
There’s a one million percent chance that the loud-as-hell, annoying-as-all get out battery-powered toy that your child loves will go off five second after they’ve gone to sleep causing you to channel your inner samurai so you can stealth leap across the room to try to turn it off. Whether or not you’re successful is something else entirely. Proceed with caution with these sleep-stealers.
I have you LOOKED at the crazy ideas the people at Food Inc. have about how much we eat and drink? My can of Diet Coke has 2.5 serving in it. WHAT?!? I can drink one standing up before my day has even started. So I pretty much need five servings to get through my morning. Color me unconvinced.
Clearly sent here from the devil himself, do not–I repeat–do not trust the dreaded combination of bathing suits plus fluorescent lighting. Suddenly your backside looks like a close up of the moon. Your skin is either yellow or blue and even the parts of your body you like are suddenly questionable. Approach these situations only when necessary.
Look, they will find you. You think you’ve got them all in the case, but that doesn’t matter. One will be hiding in the carpet and you will step on it. I think it’s Newton’s fifth law or something: If there’s a lego in your house, it’s not if you’ll step on it, it’s when.
Those smiling, perfect, happy families? All fake. Okay, maybe not “fake” but remember you never really know what was happening the other 23 hours, and 59 seconds of their day. Also, photoshop exists for a reason. Also bribes. So enjoy the adorable family photos but know that there’s only so much reality involved there.
