What they do have are clever, inquisitive minds, strong wills, and working bowels. If you’ve had a child, we’re sure you’ve experienced a few moments of embarrassment courtesy of your offspring. If you need a giggle, or perhaps to just not feel so alone in your spit-up stained yoga pants, here are 25 Hilarious Parenting Stories Of Inappropriate Kid Moments.
