8 Things We Do With Our Kids Ideally Portrayed vs. What Actually Happens
Posted by Brandi Temple on October 01, 2014
1. Breakfast with the kiddos
Picture Perfect: Ahhh, a nice breakfast with his son while his little one leans in to share cereal with his dad...
Real life: 6AM piggy back rides.
2. Getting kids to eat their veggies
Picture Perfect: All we have to do is take an hour out of our schedules to make veggie characters so our kids will be sure to eat them, right?
Real Life: WRONG! I believe this is more like it when trying to get your child to eat veggies! I am sure all of you can relate!
3. Family traveling
Picture perfect: Ideally, it'd go this smoothly.
Real life: Introducing the airport leash.
4. Family portraits
Picture perfect: Even dressed like this, they managed to come out with a picture perfect moment! It is always SO much fun photographing kids, until it becomes like the pic below!
Real Life: This picture went oh-so-terribly wrong, but turned out so stinkin’ cute!
5. Kids' haircuts
Picture perfect: Haircut? No problem!
Real Life: When she wants her haircut NOW and this happens.
6. Potty training
Picture perfect: Because all potty training goes just this perfect!
Real Life: Trying to potty train your little one? I don’t think this is how it is suppose to work. I could be wrong.
7. Sleeping in on weekends
Picture perfect: Awe, look how sweet! Mom, Dad, Brother, and Sister all cuddled up comfortably in a bed. Why not do this every night?
Real life: I am most certain this is how those Saturday mornings go when you are trying to get that extra 5 minutes of sleep!
8. Grocery shopping with the kids
Picture perfect: Right...
Real life: You try and satisfy them by getting the huge race car buggy that you can barely push through the aisles, and this happens...
Despite "real life", we wouldn't want to live it any other way! These little Doodlers keep us going and loving strong!
