Funny Christmas Stock Photos about Parenting During the Holidays

When you have kids, reality rarely matches your expectations. Especially on Christmas.

You picture an idyllic afternoon of baking sugar cookies together; in reality your toddler spends most of it dumping flour all over his pants.

You picture a leisurely drive looking at Christmas lights; in reality someone's always groaning in the backseat that they're bored, too hot, too cold, or someone else farted at them.

I blame Christmas stock photos.

After getting such a great response from you when I corrected some silly baby stock photos, I thought I'd do it again with funny holiday stock photos. Which one is your favorite?

  3. #3 is why I just save every gift bag (and piece of tissue paper...) ever and shove everything in them the night before. I just don't even care... Way less trash that way, too!

  4. Hahahaha. These are perfect. I love the one about the child redecorating/putting the ornaments where they REALLY go. Ha!
