We'd all love to be all-star parents, but there's just one thing standing in our way: No matter how hard we try, we're pretty much always at the whim of our children. (You really never know when that sweet little angel of yours is going to do something unexpected.) Admittedly, though, when we look back on these moments, they're a bit humorous. So when we found @averageparentproblems on Instagram, an account that pairs funny photos with problems all parents have had, we were instantly hooked. They just get us!

Ahhh, the "stiff as a board" technique. I know it well. I hope you weren't in a rush to get anywhere! #averageparentproblems photo: @veeneza_1

It's like he's not even trying. #averageparentproblems photo: @mommyshorts // Every year around Mother's Day, I like to challenge moms to put themselves in their photos for a period of two weeks. I know we all think it's our responsibility to document, but when our kids are older and look back through their family photos, the person behind the camera doesn't even seem like they were there. For added incentive, I'm giving away fourteen $100 gift cards to CVS— one a day to moms who post photos of themselves with their kids using the #PutMominthePhoto hashtag. You must tag and follow both @mommyshorts and @CVSpharmacy to win. You can read more about the contest and see the CVS Photo album I made with every picture of me and my kids I could find on my blog.

Because parents don't get sick days EVER, I'm partnering with @NyquilDayquil to give moms and dads two ways to win some money! FIRST WAY: Tag a friend in the comments below and both you and your friend could each win an $100 Amex gift card. You must follow both @averageparentproblems and @NyquilDayquil to win. SECOND WAY: I'm putting together a photo series to bring you 24 hours in the life of a parent under the weather. Post photos to #nosickdays of all the things you still have to do when you're sick (waking up the kids, feeding the baby, buying last minute supplies for your kid's science project, etc.) and I'll choose one photo to represent every hour. Each photo I use gets $50 and they'll be posted on mommyshorts.com. 24 winners in total! All winners will be announced on February 17th. ✨✨✨WINNER UPDATE: Congrats to @kduguay and @theduguayboys! Please [email protected] to claim your prize!✨✨✨
