Some people just aren't cut out for kids. And shockingly, some of these people have actually made a career (or at least a side gig) out of watching children! It's insane! As parents, of course we always want to provide our children with the absolute best care. But sometimes, we don't know any better!

Yes, I know. I’m well aware that my child is screaming. Not just a regular scream, but an ear-piercing, sanity-shattering screech. Even if I wasn’t seeing and hearing it, I would know by the expression on your face.
Clearly, you have raised your children better than me.

It was supposed to be a great day. How could it not be, when we started out the morning with Cinnamon Pancakes. I know he’s been feeling the effects of my divided attention. He’s been the center of my world for the past 2 1/2 years.
