There are a lot of moments in raising children that just suck. The first time they get sick, the first time you forget to send your kid to school with their bagged lunch, and it really sucks the first time your kid totally ruins something of yours.
I have had many things in my house destroyed by my kids. Things covered in poop, shattered, sprinkled all over the house. I don’t need to tell you that it’s not fun! Sometimes though the best thing to do is laugh. I always make sure I take a picture as evidence for bribery later in life (just kidding … maybe). They say laughter is the best medicine – and what better cure for the super-angry’s than laughing at someone else’s problem?

"Our youngest was in the bathroom, had been there for a long time. I checked on her, knocked on the door, asked if everything was alright. She answered yes, and I didn't think anything of it. Then my wife went to check, because the girl was calling for help. This is what she found. Minty fresh poo smell!" - Harry
Pimp Your Ride
"While I was out grocery shopping, I walked past the front of my car and found that it had been decorated in permanent red ink. I thought, "AHHHHHH!!!!! How long has THAT been there?!!" While grey cars don't show dirt, they show red ink really well. Due to the writing style, I suspect it was my 4 year old. I don't know where she got the pen, and I can't figure out when she did this. At least she didn't draw racing stripes down the sides, but that's where the scratches are from the bicycle handles" - Ann
"Permanent marker, Clearasil zit cream, and nail polish. We're so proud." - Julie

"I'm a culinary student so I keep random sh*t, like food dye, in my car. My son decided to dump several ounces of it all over my daughter, including her hair, just as I was on my way to drop them off at a sitter's for the evening so I could go to a concert that night. I was late to the concert." - Jena
