Becoming a parent is something special. Then comes the struggle of protecting your kid’s emotions, even if it takes having unrealistic expectations from others when your kid shows a sh***y drawing or does something that doesn’t even qualify for mediocrity.
We don’t talk about it, but we would agree to these tweets no matter how much we try to be nice to our or somebody else’s kids.
Take a look!

4 Year Old asked for her drawing to be kept with her other art work.
Didn’t want to be a bad parent and throw it in garbage, so I neatly folded it and threw in the recycle bin

[After a Subway commercial]
My kid: Why are they called sandwich "artists," anyone could do that
Me: Careful pal I've seen what you bring home from "art" class

My son decided to use the last of my emotional support pasta for an art project so I’ll be looking for some kind of re-homing arrangement for him after this is all over.

4yo: "Look at this picture I made!"
Me: *looking at a bunch of scribbles*
Me: "Oh wow! Is it a cloud?"
Me: "Is it a lake?"
Me: "What is it?"
4yo: "It's trash!"
Me: "You drew trash?"
4yo: "Yeah! It's all the stuff on the floor in our car!"

5-year-old: Look what I drew!
Me: That looks cool. What is it?
5: I haven't decided yet.

My 7 yr old son drew a picture of an old woman.
I asked him who it was & he replied
“She comes into my bedroom to kiss me goodnight”
A chill ran down my spine then I remembered my mum is staying with us & it’s probably her.

Why use a coloring book when this ENTIRE house can be my canvas?!

I asked my kids to make birthday cards for my husband. One drew a giant 48 when he’s only turning 43 and the other drew a tombstone-shaped cake that said “R.I.P.” so these should go over well.

It's weird how we tell kids not to lie then tell them how good the picture they drew is.
