Global Parent’s Day: Parenting Stories To Make You Smile!
The first of June has finally arrived, and we couldn’t be more excited. Why? Because it’s Global Parent day of course! That’s right, Today is a day to celebrate all the amazing parents around the world! Here at Ziggle we wanted to share parents’ funniest and heart-warming stories that prove being a parent is the best… and sometimes most questionable job in the world!
Starting us off with a little one who is showing us you don’t need a dance floor to have a good boogie…
“My daughter decided to strip completely naked, nappy and all, in the shop when I had my back turned for about five seconds. I only became aware when a lovely lady tapped me on my shoulder and whispered into my ear, ‘Excuse me, love, your child is dancing naked beside the potatoes.'”
Every parent has a funny story to share of something they’ve done when they’ve been sleep deprived…
“When my baby was a few months old, I decided to have my first beer since getting pregnant. Apparently, the combination of being sleep-deprived and not having had a drink in over a year was a potent one — my husband had to wake me up. I fell asleep with my face on my food!”
“In the middle of the night when one (or both) of my twins would be up fussing, in my husband’s sleep-deprived state he would often try to tell me why they were crying, and the reasons were hilarious and often related to his work or a TV show. One time my husband said one was fussing because the baby hadn’t made it to the next round on Top Chef because he hadn’t cut the onions small enough.”
Next up we have a story that really proves not all heroes wear capes!
“I went to my little one’s school for parents evening and seen that all the children had created a display of their favourite superheros. The display was full of pictures of Spider-man and footballers etc., but my little one had put a picture of me and said “my mum is my hero.” I choked and filled up!”
“My husband and I were heading to dinner with our two sons. It was later than we normally eat and everyone was ‘hangry’. As we was about to get seated my five-year-old son Charlie wasn’t with us. We looked back and he had stopped to hold the door open for an older couple coming in. They came over to say what a gentleman we were raising, and whatever we were doing, to keep it up. It made our night, our day, our year.”
