Forget the perfectly arranged photos where everyone’s smiling… this is really what it’s like being stuck in a house full of everyone you’re related to.
Every moment is contained chaos.
The mornings are always the biggest struggle.
Every kid’s moment in the spotlight is inevitably followed by the other siblings’ jealousy.
Vomit comes when we least expect it.
Seriously, vomit is a ninja.
Artistic creation always comes at a cost.
Even with age, kids will always be kids.
Boys have a hard time handling rejection from the ladies.
Whereas others have a more relaxed approach.
It’s tough being a mom.
and even tougher finding time for the simple things.
It’s always the one you least expect ruining the moment.
The more important the photo, the less likely the younger family members will cooperate.
I mean really.
The second-child syndrome is always alive and well.
Good luck getting everyone in the frame at once.
The digital age makes it tough to get the perfect Christmas moment.
and visits home ALWAYS result in fixing Mom’s computer.
Even photo ops with the President don’t go as planned.
Clearly getting the perfect family moment can be tough, but that’s what being a family is all about. Eventually you’ll get the perfect moment. Eventually.
