2. "I didn't realize my son was awake...


"While watching a movie, I didn't realize my son was awake. One of the characters yelled, 'Get out of my f**king car!' That's when my son piped up from around the corner, 'Mama, why isn't he getting out of her f**king car?'"

4. "My daughter promptly marched up to them and asked..."


"It was November, and my 4-year-old was learning about the first Thanksgiving at preschool. We live not too far from an Amish community, and it never occurred to me she hadn't been exposed to it until we were at Target and saw several Amish ladies in the toy section. My daughter promptly marched up to them and asked, 'What's it like to be Pilgrims?'"


6. "I laughed but it was embarrassing."


"My husband took our 3-year-old daughter to the hotel pool while I went back to the room to use the bathroom. When I showed up at the pool later people were looking at me funny. It turns out that upon arriving my daughter very loudly announced to everyone, 'My mommy is pooping!'"



8. "I nearly died."


"We were out shopping when my 4-year-old son ran up to a lady in a powered wheelchair and asked her if she wanted to race. She was nice and raced him for a bit, but then he started asking questions and offering to help with the controls. She let him have a go and he drove her straight into a shop sign."


11. "I'm so lucky there wasn't a scratch on her."


"I was unloading the dishwasher and forgot to put away the paring knives first. I turned from the cupboard area to pick up more dishes in time to see my eighteen-month-old holding a knife. She had the sharp side in her palm and was pretending to brush her hair."



14. "When I walked into their room..."


"I woke up in the middle of the night to my kids laughing hysterically, so I went to check on them. When I walked into their room there was egg yolk dripping down the walls. They'd got the eggs from the refrigerator while my husband and I were asleep, and decided to have an egg throwing contest."



16. "That resulted in an instant 'SHIT!'"


"My son found a tiny, empty snail shell outside and excitedly told me the snail's name was Samuel Jr. Before bed we were sitting on the couch when he quietly leaned over to me and said, 'Mommy, Samuel Jr. is stuck up my nose.'"

18. "I came around the corner to find..."


"I came around the corner to find my 18-month-old son standing on the dining room table with one of my ex-husband's belts in his hands. He was trying to loop it around a whirling fan blade so he could 'Go for ride.'"



20. "But later..."


""One of our three cats, Bean, peed on the floor so I yelled, 'Get out, you f***ing cat!'" I didn't know my 4-year-old was listening, but later he was asked to name his cats and said 'There's The Doctor, there's Mickey and there's the f***ing cat!'"
