Sometimes I get emails and messages that parents send with photos AND stories. And some photos tell an entire story all on their own. I could bombard Instagram with photos all day long, but that would be frustrating for all of us. Here are some of my favorite stories this week:
"My daughter Harleigh will do absolutely the opposite of everything shes told, this day she was told to sit and relax, she found the timeout stool and became creative, and no shes not stuck she always manages to get out:)." -Patricia Johnston
"In this picture I'm sitting in a box. As a child I really loved to play with boxes. My dad once bought a doll and I threw the doll in a corner and started to play with the box! This picture was taken around 1992 when I was about 5 years old!" -Angelique Vermeule, The Netherlands
"All I want is a little privacy!" -Maricela Jimenez
Sometimes I feel the need to explain to people that the title of this website, instagram, and all Kids Are The Worst things is playing off our society's need to exaggerate moments. I want to explain to all of the Negative Nancy Naysayers that you can laugh with us or don't worry about it. But then I read this quote:
Well, then. We can't convince other parents and non-parents to laugh and understand hyperbole, so we gotta stop trying. You get it. I get it. Let's have fun.
