Raising children is a rollercoaster journey that demands every ounce of our nerves and patience. It’s a ride filled with challenges and surprises at every turn. Just when you think you have it all figured out, they throw you a curveball, testing your resolve.

  • “Mom, you have nowhere to run”. With such a phrase, my daughter came into the room, took the remote control and turned on the “Tokyo Ghoul”. And I’m afraid of horrors. © Mirajjanna / Pikabu
  • My daughter was 2 years old when she decided to try painting. She took a thick green marker, put it on the wall, and walked with it across the entire perimeter of the apartment: the mirror, walls, doors, and the craziest thing — an open closet where there were white shirts hanging on the lower bar. © Yana Yurakova
  • I always wear pants or jeans no matter whether I am at home or outside. Once, I took my son to my office, where I wear a skirt. My 5-year-old kept looking at me and then said, “Wow! Turns out, you are a girl!” © Inga Urgant

  • I was home alone with my 2-year-old son and was not feeling well. So I lay down and fell asleep. When I woke up after 30 minutes, my first thought was, “What a good boy! He didn’t make noise and let me sleep for a bit!” Right afterward, I found my son and almost had a blackout, seeing his bright-red face with greenish-blue smudges. Turns out, he opened the drawer with my cosmetics and put all the available shades of lipstick and eyeshadow on himself. © Elena Bogatyrenko

  • My daughter, after a walk and a swim in the sea, joyfully and loudly informs the waitress several times in a summer cafe: “And I’m without panties!”. Me: “Сan we talk about this more quietly?”. Daughter, looking around in surprise: “Is someone sleeping?”. © ArtElo / Pikabu
  • Once, my brother and I scratched a dark polished wooden tabletop with a key and it turned white. I wasn’t sure our mom would like the new addition to the tabletop and I was right. The other time we decided to make a collection of very rare stamps. The stamps were printed in a book, so that’s why we had to cut them out of the book and glue them in our notebook so that we would have a collection. Our mother didn’t like the idea, again. © Mylla Yanovska
  • My mother-in-law asked me to open a jar with homemade mustard because it was closed too tightly. I’d been trying to open it for a long time, I tried various tricks, but it was still closed tight. Then I put the jar between my legs and started to unscrew the lid. Looking at me, our 3.5-year-old daughter, said, “Dad, I think you are going to make a big poo now.” I almost dropped the jar from laughter. My mother-in-law and my wife were laughing too. © Aleksei Osipov

  • All the tablecloths, bed covers, and curtains in our home had fringe when I was a kid. Once, as my mom was busy cooking in the kitchen, I cut off all the fringe in one room so I could make my own “salad.” Mom was upset but I wasn’t punished. Now I love to cook. © Alyona Sokol
  • At 7, I was attending courses to learn how to make stuffed toys. Once, when my parents were out, I decided to make a surprise for my mom’s birthday — a big stuffed dog. Mom was delighted, but she didn’t realize it was made from her old fur coat. © Natalya Nikolskaya
  • My son decided to make a tunnel in the wall between his room and his sister’s room. He quietly sat behind the door and started to remove the wall with a pin for a corkboard. Apparently, the presence of the door was not enough for him — he needed more, a tunnel. After some time, when he got tired, he decided to decorate the recess in the wall with a picture of space. © Anna Vladimirovna Andreeva

  • At the age of 5-6, my younger sister decided to refresh her doll’s wardrobe. The fabric for the new clothes was cut out from our mother’s dresses. I was 11-12 at that time and I was punished for not watching my little sister properly. © Elena Shrunshik
  • Last week, my son and I were walking along the beach. Since the weather wasn’t very hot, we didn’t intend to swim, but at some point my son changed his mind. When he got out of the sea, I dried him with his T-shirt (because we didn’t have towels) and put my white oversize sweater on him. As he was standing in this white sweater and looking at the sea, he said, “I feel like a god.” © Mika Khassenova

  • My son was crying because he had a nightmare. Among the frightened babble, I isolated “you flew away.” I began to calm down, along the way tried to understand what the child has in mind. “Where am I going to fly away from you, I’m not going anywhere without you”, and so on. Calming down, the child confidently gave out:
    — Mom can’t fly.
    — And why can’t it?
    — Mom is fat and can’t fly.
    Actually, I am not fat. © CradledInLove

Children have a unique ability to find joy in the simplest things, and their innocent perspective often leads to the most unexpected and hilarious moments. While it can be trying, the laughter that kids bring and the memories created along the way make this adventure worth every twist and turn, and you will never feel bored. Parenthood is an emotional mix that creates a bond that lasts a lifetime.
