Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-25It's so easy to give in and hand them all the shiny things. But stand your ground, Mom/Dad. Don't give in to the tiny terrors. Imagine I'm right there slow clapping you as you smile and say "not today, kid. Not today!" Keep walking. Hear the slow clap build. Head held high. Ignore the kicks and screams. Keep smiling and walking.

Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-23Remember how we thought kids would be helpful when we were in our toilet need? Good times. (They get more helpful as they age, especially when their friends are over and you yell about the TP. 😏🤣🙈💩) ThatIsNotHowWeRecylcePaper 📷: dawnerys__kidsaretheworsthttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/21910815_904448676378185_1818891634511708160_n.jpg2017-09-23
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-23You gotta have the important talks with your kids. 🚫🤡🚫⛵️ Did you see this in our Stories? My kid mentioned how he saw the preview for It with the kid chasing the boat (how he saw the preview... I don't know resourceful). So of course, I thought my child wouldn't be as dumb as the movie kid to take a freaking paper boat from a CLOWN inside a DRAIN!! But I was wrong. We definitely covered that taking anything from ANYONE in a drain is a bad move. 🤣🙈🤦🏻♀️ kidsaretheworstclownsareworsehttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e15/21910149_1353817124727139_2531645494552166400_n.jpg2017-09-23
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-22Nothing to see here. Just your average sibling conversation in the bathroom while eating cantaloupe.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-21Oh wait. I remember why 🤣! I love teaching kids and parents how to use social media in a smart and empowering way. I can’t wait to release the full e-book so you can all feel empowered with social. Because social is awesome. And so are savage notes like this one. Stay tuned, y’all!
Give me an emoji if you would want a social media guide for families. 🙌🤔⚡️🤘 Thanks for sending this to me, salma0519kidsaretheworsthttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/p640x640/21819636_129002721081184_8205176612577083392_n.jpg2017-09-21
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-21Let the fall activities commence. Along with the complaints.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-20Something really bad, I bet. Like me pulling my hair out.
Check out theunfitfather and tell him what happens after three. Like maybe we all eat candy? kidsaretheworsthttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/21909374_482152522169872_985488720037675008_n.jpg2017-09-20
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-20Great minds think alike. I love that therealramblinma and I made almost identical memes last year. Which just goes to show you that we are all much more similar in this parenting gig than we are different.
I appreciate every single one of you for being part of this community of parents, children, aunts, uncles, and people who want reminders of why they don't want kids. It's so much more fun to laugh together about the insanity of raising humans than it is to cry alone. Thanks for laughing, sharing, commenting, and being plain rad.
And for real, therealramblinma is worth a follow. She's legit. kidsaretheworsthttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/21820181_230132250848806_8781216814567784448_n.jpg2017-09-20
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-20Thinking of all the things I can do.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-19See also sixth grader. And, if I'm being honest, 39 year-old mother. Because BREAD!
Please tell me you are following perfectpending because she makes me LOL on the reg.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-19I'd tell you a joke about toilet paper, but it's tearable.

Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-19Quiet during bath time? I'd say this kid is definitely a winner.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-18Luckily it's Monday so it's a fresh start. Right?
But... it's also Rice Krispie Treat Day.
So I guess I will be so full I can't breathe from RKTs! My hands are tied.

Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-17It's this cool new thermometer that absorbs all the germs. And you should see the activities you can do while using it! Swimming! Jogging! Gymnastics!
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-16Me: I'm gonna eat healthy.
Gag, gag, one more bite, gag. See? This is great.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-15You guys, 100 days starting RIGHT NOW for those who celebrate Christmas. "Should I text Santa that you just said that?" "Oh no, what do you think Santa will think when he finds out you didn't brush your teeth last night?" Do you text Santa or call him or write letters? I mean, we are barely putting out the Halloween decorations, but best believe we are taking advantage of these 100 days of elf-monitored behavior (not the shelf kind, tyvm). kidsaretheworststrangerthingscallsantatextsantahttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/21577200_1450938204996177_3008608686584102912_n.jpg2017-09-15
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-14I'm suuuuper busy. I mean, I should go to the store for more tape. Super busy.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-13Sure. I can add one more thing. Maybe I can balance it on my head.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-13So much culture. Not enough naps.
Who travels with their kids? I've considered taking all of my kids on some grand trip, but think they'd be just as stoked with a little adventure that we can drive less than 10 hours to get to. At least, that's what I'm telling myself. I'd definitely consider taking one kid at a time on a big trip.
What have you done? What's your family vacation opinion? 📷: yaninasworld (this is holiday-card worthy!!) kidsaretheworsthttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/21577042_700134930172127_1525190651140898816_n.jpg2017-09-13
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-13Cutest thing happened. My daughter and I were shopping yesterday and someone came up to us and said, "Do you want to see something funny?" The answer is always yes! Duh.
This is when we met candle-loving Evie and her mother, sarahchristensen3. I love a girl who knows quality candles when she smells them.
What's your favorite candle scent? You know I'm all about the fall spice ones right now.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-12Snacks, dessert, anything and everything BUT the dinner I am making. "What's that disgusting smell?" It's dinner. Bon appetit, punk.

Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-11Did you see the Stories today about my teen driving? She's the coolest teen I know, but legit made this noise when she saw my Story. 😂😂 kidsaretheworsthttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e15/21480607_493117614389430_3784003798528163840_n.jpg2017-09-11
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-11The trick to good parenting is to know when to apologize. And assign blame correctly. 🤔🤣 From the HILARIOUS perfectpending who is my meme soulmate.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-09That sounds like they've got a fun evening planned. It's almost a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure. Will there be cheers or tears?
Raise your 🤚 if you're potty training one of your kids right now! Show your 👊 if you are grateful that you are not potty training anyone right now. And how about a 💩 for everyone else. 🤣 📹: kyleethompskidsaretheworsthttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e15/21576945_1471172912971195_1456681786716192768_n.jpg2017-09-09
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-08Seriously, why does one hour feel like two hours when your kids are at home and one hour feels like ten seconds when they are gone?
Parent math is crazy. I'm gonna just sit here and think about it on the couch for a few more minutes before I have to pick up my kids.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-08Anyone want to tell me how the clothes magically go from the floor to the hamper every night? Anyone? Anyone?
HEY! I'm taking over today on thatbadmomlife! Come over and play. Class?
