18 Hilarious Parenting Fails That Prove It’s The Thought That Counts

It’s not easy being a parent. Kids are time-consuming and demanding and if there’s one thing most parents have in common it’s that they’re just bone-tired. The fatigue and distraction can lead to all sorts of easy-to-make mistakes, but the way I see it, as long as your child makes it in one piece through the day and into bed at night, you are batting 1000.

These parents all had some fails but hey, they truly care, and that’s the important part.

1. Like this mom who only forgot one ingredient.

2. Or this dad who didn’t consider the bigger picture.

3. This dad who’s really very tired.

4. And this ace photographer dad.

5. This dad who bought his daughter Lily a special birthday cake.

6. Whoever is responsible for this well-intentioned cake for babies.

7. This dad whose calculations were just a little bit off.

8. This dad who should maybe stay away from the kitchen. And the jokes.

9. This overeager mom.

10. This mom who might have been distracted.

11. This mom got at least one thing right.

12. The maker of this…pancake?

13. This mom who was in the holiday spirit.

14. This parent who did what had to be done.

15. Parents out here having lots of pancake difficulties.

16. This parent who is now banned from bringing treats to school functions.

17. This dad who added a bit of extra padding to his baby’s butt.

18. And this person who is the parent of the softest, smoothest baby around.
