If you're a parent, then you know it's the hardest job imaginable. No training manual, you're constantly winging it.
Sometimes...winging it has its humorous side. Hence this thread.
I've got many parental failures under my belt, and my son is only six. I'm sure there are more coming in the future. Meanwhile, here's one of my best (or worst) parental fail moments.
My son was about three and it was Christmas time. My husband had just made a pan of chocolate fudge and we wanted to see if my son liked it. He'd never tried fudge before.
I brought him into the kitchen and showed him the fudge. He was singularly uninterested. We did the typical new food spiel, tasting it ourselves and "Oooing" over how good it tasted. My son was unimpressed. Finally, he shook his head no and asked for some carrots instead.
To my everlasting shame and embarrassment, I actually told my son "No carrots until you eat your fudge."
As soon as I said it, I was mortified. My husband laughed so hard he had to sit down. And my son? He just said, "Silly Mommy," and proceeded to grab a handful of carrots and toddled out of the room.
Not one of my prouder moments, ATS.
Looking forward to some interesting responses!

When thelittleweldsman was a baby, I taught him to crawl.
He didn't seem to be interested until I crawled backwards to show him again.
He spent the next few weeks crawling backwards everywhere.
