    Hahaha! Funniest thing I have read in a long time. I’m able to laugh freely because we’re not at that stage yet with our one year old. But it’s not far away, and I’m sure I’ll be laughing out the other side of my face then :/

  2. Love it! Especially the 11 photos of the carpet! Last week I somehow managed to record a 21 minute video of the inside of my coat pocket so I definitely understand this one haha 🙂 #bestandworst
