This morning, I ran across an article on Yahoo! and it made me giggle.  It was an article about things parents do and blame their toddlers for it.  Even though I am not a parent, I kept thinking I SOOO would do some of the things listed in the article.

Here’s the list:

1. Unwashed Hair or a Slightly Rank Smell

Who the hell has time to shower? And if you smell a little, well just blame it on the toddler’s diaper.

2. Running Late for Appointments

So many ways to go here — potty emergency, temper tantrum, or a disaster that necessitated a wardrobe change right before you headed out the door.

3. Unknowingly Wearing Two Different Shoes

Ask around; you’ll be surprised how many moms have done this … more than once. Who is cognizant enough after yet another night with your kid in bed kicking you in the head to distinguish a blue shoe from a red one?

4. Forgetting your Mother-In-Law’s birthday

You can’t remember your own name with all of those tantrums, you really can’t be expected to remember that.

5. Skipping Weddings, Graduations, or Other Events You Don’t Want To Attend

You simply couldn’t find a babysitter, and unless they want the little dear there wreaking havoc, well … next time.

6. A Messy House

The crumbs, the chaos, all of it is her fault!

7. Those Extra 10 Pounds You’re Still Packing

Who can exercise with a toddler underfoot. And those damn chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese you cook for them are just too powerful to resist.

Are you guilty of any of the above things?  Be honest!!!
