Everyone is Talking
About the mom who called her daughter out for drugs.
Why do I care?
It’s a hilarious case of assumption and one that lightens the parenting gig a bit.
Tell me more.
A Texas mom discovered a stash of colorful capsules in her 16-year-old daughter’s room when looking for a calculator. This mother did what any mother would do, she promptly began texting her daughter to come home so they could confront the issue – to which her daughter replied, and we quote, “Ahahaha (smiley face, smiley face), Mom they aren’t drugs lol, go put them in water.”
Her mom obliged, and what she found was the capsules transformed when exposed to water…into little dinosaur sponges. Honest mistake.
That’s What He Said
What does the favorite Dad in your life want this Father’s Day?
Not a tie. Just sayin’
Give him one (or more) of the below and you’ll make his day:
- A piece of art made from his favorite things.
- A digital personal assistant.
- An apology checklist from his favorite teen.
- His favorite snack with a twist
- His first subscription box for a close shave everyday, or a box that helps him tap into his creative side.
- Interviews about him, written by his kids.
