Let's be honest - most of the time parenting is much harder than it looks. Sure, it's a time of great joy and wonder but there are moments when, bless their little hearts, our children seem sent to this earth just to test our patience.
When things get stressful and parents start racking up sleepless nights and tension headaches, there are no thanks coming. It's what parents do, right?
Fortunately, for every moment of disaster, there's a good chance that the little miracles will still manage to melt our hearts. Just like these 15 naughty kids, you just can't help but forgive them instantly.
1. Skin Care Regime
While it's just possible that this little tyke has heard that yogurt is good for their skin, we imagine that it's no good for their mom's state of mind.
2. I've Been Framed, Mum
The old classic. Break the picture frame. Then when you're caught, pretend to be fixing it. We remember that one from when we were little, it didn't work then either.
3. Burying The Evidence
The best time to grab a box full of sand and start flinging it around is the moment after somebody has mopped the floor. Honest.
4. It Wasn't Me
Now, where did mom put those cookies? Oh, that's where they are. Baby denied it all the way to the bathroom. You can't help but laugh, can you?
5. Frustrated Artist Should Stay That Way
This is one of those moments which is both funny and painful. If you know just how much hardwood flooring costs this is mainly painful.
6. Bathing In Dinner
Apparently, this little boy decided that the right way to was was to cover himself in dinner. Then he got out of trouble by speaking his first word!
7. Yoga Rides
This mom knows that if she wants to carry on with yoga, she's going to have to get used to playing horsey while she does so.
8. Minor Mix Up
Now, I think I've got this, mom. I go in the box and all the toys and clothes and things, they go on the floor. Am I right, mom? Well, am I?
9. One For Me, Two For The Floor
Potato chips aren't very good for children's teeth but they're probably better for parental stress when they're in the child's mouth rather than on the floor.
10. Shopping Spree
Shopping is only exciting when you're little when shopping is for toys. Otherwise, just like this little boy, you have to make your own entertainment.
11. Charge Of The Bed Brigade
Going to sleep is boring. Running around your bed like a tiger is way more fun. Don't all moms and dads know this moment?
12. I May Have Dropped Something
There's something in that expression that we all wish we could emulate when something like this happens. It says, "well, I don't know how this happened but dad will be cleaning it up."
13. Surprise Cuddles
You shut your eyes. You lay down on the sofa. Then suddenly, as if from nowhere at all, the little one lands on your head. Nap over, mom.
14. Chocolate? What Chocolate?
No mom, I haven't seen the chocolate. Why would you think I would know anything about it going missing? What a fabulous smile he has.
15. The Height Of Fashion
This was one of our favorites when we were kids too, the hat made of underpants. Fortunately, Instagram wasn't invented when we were little.
Aren't they just adorable? It would be a hard heart that could resist these mischief-making kids.
