“I accidently packed my lunch for my daughter. She was upset because she didn’t like it one bit.”
Jaqueline, Irving

“For Yellow Day at preschool, I dressed my son in yellow clothes, packed yellow crackers for his snack and included a note saying ‘Happy Yellow Day!’ It was actually Red Day.”
Ali, Colleyville 

“I was trying to be efficient by carrying my stroller on an escalator, thinking my 3-year-old could ride down behind me by himself. The empty stroller and I got on, and my child freaked out and was left at the top screaming.” Noelle, Dallas 

“We found out my daughter’s pre-K graduation conflicted with our vacation to the beach. She was sad, so I asked, ‘Would you like to miss the beach and go to graduation?’ She replied, ‘No. I need sand between my toes.’” Lakin, Forney 

“My pre-kindergarteners had a weather day, so I thought my kindergartner did too and kept him home. I saw my kindergartner’s teacher post a picture of his class being read to. Only then did it occur to me that he actually did have school that day.” Germaine, Lantana 

“I told my 5-year-old son about how my dad showed me the “Thriller” video when I was 2 and I’ve been traumatized by it ever since. He assured me he wouldn’t be scared, so against my better judgment I let him watch it. Not only was he terrified, but now he freaks out if any Michael Jackson song comes on!”
