8 Surprisingly Deep Parenting Lessons Found in Bathroom Graffiti (PHOTOS)

Were you aware that everything you ever needed to know about motherhood can be found scrawled on the grimy walls of various public restrooms? Okay, not REALLY, but there's a startling amount of decent parenting advice that's been shared via bathroom graffiti. Yes: bathroom graffiti. As in, the things people write while they're … um, privately occupied.

Look, I realize you think I'm completely insane and that I'm about to try and trick you into looking at a bunch of offensively crude anatomical drawings, but trust me: I totally suggested that angle and my editor turned it down. So here instead are 8 bathroom graffiti messages that are surprisingly heartfelt …. and even more surprisingly, completely on-target when it comes to summing up parenthood.

Oh Linda, how disappointing that you've let them turn you like them. Doing SLIDESHOWS for the CLICKS is just so pathetic. I always admired how you were the only one who made witty and smart articles and didn't need slideshows. Make it scrollable and write a quality piece and you will get more readers.

Will you PLEASE STOP using slide-shows! It is beyond annoying. Can't you post each one going down in an article, like bullet points instead?
