What Children Do to Your Best-laid Plans

Lucy Huber posted a Tweet musing on the plans of parents-to-be. Really, babies and toddlers are small, and you can just carry them around, right? Experienced parents not only laugh at those plans, they all have stories that illustrate the many ways young children can complicate even the simplest tasks.  

You can read the whole thread at Twitter (it's still growing), or read a roundup of the 30 best tales at Bored Panda. The comments there have some great stories, too.

We took our 5-year old on a hike, and she did want to go...complaining and complaining. Then she found a nickle on the trail...and then a dime...another nickle! There was no stopping her. We had a nice 30-minute hike, and it cost me less than $2.50.

Now, that's a story worth passing along!
