When will they make a baby-crying translation guide?

2. When your potty training toddler says she has to go to the bathroom as soon as you leave the house, but you're too far away to turn back, and not close enough to your destination yet.

OK, maybe it was funny for a second.

8. When your daughters won't stop bickering, and you've exhausted every possible option to make them stop.

Even the sisters in Frozen became friends at the end. This has to stop eventually.

9. When your tween keeps asking if she can get her nose pierced, because Stacey's mom let her get her nose pierced.
