Top 6 “I Have A Bad Feeling About This” for Parents

Just pass through and deal with it, life's always been like that.

Top 6 “I Have A Bad Feeling About This” for Parents
Posted on  by Idaho Dad

As parents, it seems like not a day goes by when we don’t get some sense of dread
or disappointment involving or surrounding our children.
Thankfully, these feelings are usually minor.
We get over them quickly, or at least with very little pain and suffering.

With apologies to George Lucas, here are my
Top 6 “I Have A Bad Feeling About This” For Parents

1.       The most common one occurs while sitting on the toilet,
usually after you’ve concluded your business,
when you look over to see that there is no toilet paper on the roll.
How many times do we have to tell our kids to replace the paper after they’ve used it up?

2.       Standing in the grocery store checkout line,
you’ve just unloaded a heaping cart full of perishables,
the cashier is halfway through your items, and you realize you left your wallet at home.

3.       It’s lunchtime and your hungry kids are very happy
because you’re fixing macaroni and cheese.
As the pasta softens in the boiling water,
you reach into the fridge to find that someone used up all the milk at breakfast.

4.       It’s been a long day, you’re dead tired,
the kids went to bed on time, and your bed is looking mighty comfy.
You lay your weary head down on the ultra-soft pillow
and you just know that this will be the best night of sleep ever.
And then, in the distance, you hear a soft sound, barely recognizable at first.
There it is again, a choke followed by a growl,
and then the unmistakable splashing sound of vomit
being spewed about the bed and carpet.

5.       Your toddler walks up to you with the biggest smile on his face,
along with blue permanent marker on his nose, arms, and fingers.
He wants you to come to his room to see his cool new artwork.

6.       You’re halfway through unloading the dishwasher
when you suddenly realize it hasn’t been run.
Good luck remembering which dishes you just put away.

Have any “bad feelings” to add to the list?
