“Jax threw a fit one night because we wouldn’t let him glue toy food to his eyeballs. He kept coming out of his room and telling us he was scared of the dark. We turned a lamp on, not good enough.

When we told him he can’t glue things to his eyeballs, he broke down and cried and continued to try to convince us it was a good idea.” -Anonymous Mom

“Our daughter was doing her usual crying when I put her down for her nap. It got quiet for a few minutes, so I thought she’d gone to sleep. But then, a really panicked yell…’Mom, I need to get out! Come get me out!’ When I walked in the room, there was my 2-year-old, crying hysterically with both hands covered in poop. Not only her hands, but the whole mattress, the wall behind the crib, and all the crib slats. (Not pictured, you’re welcome!)” -Anonymous Mom
