    Text - dce42 2.9k points 13 hours ago It was early morning, and i was sleeping in my bed. My two year old woke up before me, and decided that she was going to wake me as well. She climbed out of her bed, went into the kitchen, made a set of stairs to get the kitchen knives, grabbed a knife, and headed to my bed. She climbed into my bed, and stabbed me an inch below my eye. I woke with her holding said knife over my head, and her giggling like the bride of chucky.

    Text - Sundaydinobot1 2.7k points 14 hours ago When my son was four, we were in the check out line at the grocery store. There was a very obese man two people ahead of us and unfortunantly my son spotted him. He points and says very loudly "Mommy! Look how fat that man is!" My insides go cold. People around us are trying not to laugh. I say in a very firm voice. "S that's not a nice thing to say." To which he replies. "But he's really fat." Then I tell him to just be quiet. It was the longest I'

    Text - BeholdYou_is_my_kik 4.8k points 16 hours ago A phase of having constant tantrums and explosive meltdowns over absolutely everything. Like hourly as long as she was awake. Only lasted a few months, but it was exhausting and depressing and every now and again just made me wish I'd never bothered.

    Text - asthenamesuggests 717 points 16 hours ago Not a parent, the child here. My smart self decided that the socket which we had was not pleasing so I decided to put another one in it's place. At the time my family was basically stealing electricity from the factory right next to us so the circuit was kinda connected, not sure about the specifics. As an expert, I did not cut off the electricity in our house before doing the "surgery" and got myself blown into the door, and half of the factory g

    Text - xstevemo 460 points 11 hours ago S I was talking to an older gentleman at a softball game. My 5 year old son was standing by us, patiently listening. With no warning, he punched the old guy as hard as he could in the berries. The old guy collapsed in pain. I asked my son later why he did that. He had no explanation. Just wanted to do it.

    Text - two_sheds 6.2k points 15 hours ago S I'm 15 weeks pregnant and have a 15 month old. For those who haven't been pregnant before, the first trimester is brutal for exhaustion. With my first, I slept 10 hours a night and took a 2 hour nap every day. These days I'm incredibly lucky if I get 7 hours a night, and definitely no nap. So one day about a month ago I barely slept because I had insomnia at night and my kid relentlessly wakes up between 5:30AM and 6:30AM. I was dead on my feet, so I d

    Text - edited 1 hour ago banana_hoarder 304 points 13 hours ago How about the other way around? During the late 80's, I was 16 and saving for a computer. They were expensive back then and it was more common not to have one than have one. I was going to buy a used computer. I had $350 saved up from working a minimum wage job paying $3.25/hour. I needed about $1000, so I was 1/3rd of the way there. One day I went into my cash box to put in another $20, but all my money was gone. There was a note i

A few years ago, my aunt told me about how my cousin spent around $800 USD to buy in-game items in his mobile game (it was some kind of first-person shooter). He received a gadget ban for a couple of months afterwards.

Our kids were 2 and 3, and it was about 1am so they went with us. I packed a bag with snacks and toys, and loaded everyone up. It was the middle of the night when we got there, but we still had to park a significant distance from the ER entrance When wife was back with the doc my son (2 years old) was running around and playing.

    Text - thisisyurmom 1.1k points 14 hours ago This happened today. I live in Nebraska and in March we had a devastating flood. My basement was completely destroyed and my insurance company wouldn't cover any of it (outside water not inside water) so my husband and I spent the last 2.5 months and $6000 fixing it ourselves. On Saturday we put the final finishing touches on it ready to have company back over and live in our whole House again. Hooray! UNTILLLLL This morning, my husband checked the su
