Hell hath no fury like my 4 year old screaming “ALEXA PLAY WHERE ARE YOU CHRISTMAS” as Alexa plays whatever random Christmas song she thinks 4 said.

My kid lost a tooth today, and all I’m saying is that it’s going to take a lot more than my 2020 pandemic Homer Simpson brain to remember to move the Elf on the Shelf and make Tooth Fairy magic happen all in the same night.

There's an old saying about raising kids: The days are long. The days are so, so damn long. I don't remember the rest.

There are 2 types of kids:
Kid 1 wants you to do everything for them no matter how easily they could do it on their own.
Kid 2 wants to do everything on their own and will undo whatever you just did so they can redo it themselves.
I have one of each. I also have a beer fridge.

Our Costco delivery came at 8am on a Saturday, and the delivery lady said “oh! Didn’t know if you’d be awake.” Lol! That’s the joke, friends! I’ve got three kids a dog and cat, I’ve been awake since 2006.

My son woke me at 1 AM because “[his] throat won’t let [him] yawn” and then this morning asked me why I was still in bed “just sitting there” when he was hungry, and I’m not saying that anyone should feed their kids to rabid squirrels, I’m just saying I understand the notion

I got my daughter a dump truck toy today and she keeps sitting on it and pretending she’s pooping and I don’t know how I can possibly correct her when she’s technically not wrong...
