Hilarious Instagram account is just what stressed parents need
It’s easy for parents to stress out about the things they’re doing wrong, and there are always other moms and dads around who look like they’ve got the gig totally handled.
So it’s nice when someone comes along and shows us we’re not alone. It’s even better when their evidence is hilarious.
One glance at the Kids Are the Worst Instagram page and it quickly becomes obvious why it has almost 300,000 followers. For one thing, it’s relatable – kids are the worst – and for another, it’s absolutely hysterical.
From the joys of shopping with kids…
…to the hazards of letting them sit on your shoulders…
…to how “easy” it is to travel with them …
Sweet sweet sleep. We drove home from our Spring Break last night and two of my kids were moaning and vomiting the last two hours of the drive. Which made another child dry heave and cry/laugh. 🤢😥🤣🤢😥🤣 The littlest kid and I have been up all night trying to decide if we should stay in the bathroom or start a movie. He's having a rough go of this gastroenteritis. I told him this is what #SpringBreak will be like in college if he doesn't stay at school and study. 🙊🙈 needless to say, he's super excited for college right now. 😂 Someone wish for sleep for us because I'm apparently out of wishes. TIA ✌️#kidsaretheworst
… there are no kid-related atrocities, blunders, and straight-up headshakers that this account doesn’t capture.
Some of them pics and videos on the Kids Are The Worst timeline don’t require descriptions:
And others have you laughing so hard, you couldn’t possibly spit one out:
I’m going to need a minute.
We all love our kids, and parenting, while tiring and frustrating and overwhelming and scary and thankless and… what was I saying?
The point is, if you can’t laugh at the absurdity of it all, you’ll never survive. This account is a perfect example of just how ridiculous this gig can be, and browsing it is a harmless way to let off some steam, and maybe thank the gods that your kids aren’t in any of the pics or videos.
Except maybe these kids:
Gotta respect that teamwork.
