I live firmly entrenched in the belief that, in order to survive parenthood, you need to have a solid sense of humor. That is something I definitely have, and it's developed as I've had children. The problem is that I'm not entirely sure it's developed properly. I know I can be funny, but being a mom with a weird sense of humor (which my humor definitely is) can be a bit challenging in certain social situations. You know, like any when you're the one making jokes.
On more than one occasion, I've had other kids' parents, caregivers, grandparents, and even my husband look at me with their eyebrows raised. And then I have to ask, "Too far?" and they nod slowly while my eyes shamefully meet the ground. Of course, there are people out there who totally appreciate my sense of humor, but that's usually because they've (luckily) only experienced the stuff that gets past my inner editor. Trust me, I do have one of those, so you can just imagine how bad some of the things in my head actually sound. It's honestly a miracle that more people haven't heard my unedited, what I think are hilarious but are probably not all that appropriate, thoughts.
Like I said, though, I know there are people out there who appreciate my sense of humor, so there have to be a few other moms who think like I do, right?. If you're one of them, I'm sorry. Here are 9 times that you can probably relate to, because solidarity and humor should just go hand in hand.
