kid prefs vs mom prefs open

Moms and kids don’t always see eye to eye, and that’s not just because of the height difference. We might think we’ve raised our children to uphold similar values to ourselves, but in reality, we’ve created little monsters who would rather raise hell at a waterpark than lie under a beach umbrella reading a book. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEM??

They also don’t understand that eating meals out at a restaurant is a special treat and scheduled nap times are a gift.

Kid choices are based more on imagination and candy than boring mom things like reality, fear of cavities and preserving our last shreds of sanity. To properly demonstrate, I made a side by side chart with pictures.

You know, so the kiddos understand too.

Kid Preferences vs. Mom Preferences. The struggle is real.

In summary, be very careful who plans your Mother’s Day this weekend.
