A classic guilt tripAllyso/Shutterstock
We were at the dinner table eating pizza when I asked my son Logan if I could use some of his blue cheese dressing to dip my crust. He obliged after a long deep sigh of annoyance. I was offended at this reaction and decided to remind him of the strenuous labor and delivery I had bringing his 9.9-pound body into this world—the old “I gave birth to you” guilt trip. His response: “Really Mom, how long are you gonna ride that scooter?” —Karly Molleberg. These adorable and hilarious baby photos will make you laugh out loud.

He mused for a bit and then, with his hands clasped behind his back, remarked, “Well, he tried his best!” —Catherine Russell. Here’s how to tell if you’re raising a child genius.
