What's The Weirdest Thing You've Ever Done As A Parent?

"You don't use the toothbrush on your penis!"

Yes, parenthood is an amazing, life-affirming journey that allows you to feel love on a level you never imagined possible. BUT! It will also make you do some WEIRD stuff.


For example, you might find yourself saying things like, “YOU DON’T USE THE TOOTHBRUSH ON YOUR PENIS!”

Or you might find yourself searching through a dumpster behind a pizza restaurant for a retainer your kid wrapped up in a napkin and left on the table.

You also might start referring to your partner as mommy or daddy, as in: “Daddy, do you know where the car keys are?” “On the kitchen counter, Mommy!”

You might even pee in you toddler’s plastic potty to demonstrate how it’s done.

And even if you don’t do something that weird, during potty training you follow your kid around 24/7 constantly saying, “Do you have to go potty? Do you have to go potty? How about now? Go potty?” And that too is weeeeird.
