Families are people you can’t choose. Sometimes, they make for your best moments, but other times, they frustrate the pants off of you.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a grandparent, parent, or kid, everyone who has family experiences not-so-rosy moments—times where laundry’s an issue, dinner needs to be made, or you just want to make sure the other people you live with are doing ok, even if they’re in the next room.
Life may be tough at times, but it’s never dull. Check out twelve times families have turned the mundane into hilarity.
1. Having stuff to do is good.
Don’t you wish they could stay that way forever?
5-year-old: Do I have to fall in love someday?
5: Good. I have stuff to do.

2. Come on, mom’s got friends!
She had a life before you came along, you know.
3. Touché, kid. Touché.
Sorry, dad—it’s the truth.
5-year-old: What happens when I know everything?
Me: Nobody knows everything.
5: What about Mom?

4. And she won’t always be there, so be nice!
You know that comes next, right?
5. Dive right in, the water’s fine.
It’s in here somewhere.
6. In his own dad way, he’s trying to tell you something.
He’s more subtle than mom would be, for sure.
7. Oh, you’ll eat it anyway.
Even if it isn’t perfect.
8. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
So, be aware of your words, dads!
My toddler shouted “I NEED A BREAK FROM ALL OF YOU” and then locked himself in his bedroom. When we asked what happened he replied “nothing I’m just being daddy”

9. We’re doing just fine!
But we sure appreciate you asking anyway.
10. When feeding a kid, “whatever works” is a perfect motto.
It’s all going in the same place, anyway.
Me: *serves dinner*
My toddler: what’s this?
Toddler: I no want it.
Me: Just kidding, it’s noodle pizza.

Wait till everyone in the office sees this!
