Parenting is hard because when you give your kid candy to give to their sibling and the sibling says, “Can I eat this?” to which they respond “No you stick it up your butt” you have to pretend to be mad— Bunmi Laditan (@HonestToddler) May 30, 2020

When I was in my 20’s I knew a guy named Jesus. He had an older brother named Moses and a younger brother named Steve. If that doesn’t sum up what’s it’s like to be the 3rd kid, I don’t know what does.— Rhyming Mama (@sarabellab123) June 8, 2021
My daughter came downstairs and gave me the last bite of her favorite candy. She'd learned to share, and I was proud.— Henpecked Hal (@HenpeckedHal) February 19, 2019
Then her brother came downstairs asking who ate all of his candy. "WE did!" my daughter declared. She'd learned to share blame, and I was even prouder.

She looked at me puzzled and said ‘isn’t he in his room?’
