Mom Carrying Gender Reveal Balloon Doesn't See Toddler Sneaking Up Behind Her with Toy Sword


Raising children is no walk in the park. Despite the endless joy they bring to our lives and all of the ways they enrich our day-to-day activities, they also do a lot of things that, to put it bluntly, make us want to rip our hair out.

When an opportunity for destruction presents itself, often children fight it. They don’t want to misbehave. But it calls to them, like a moth to a flame.

Eventually, they will give in, and leave a giant mess for their parents to clean up.

And we love them through it because those little monsters are our babies.

They mean the world to us even if they would destroy the entire thing if left alone for a long enough amount of time.

The mom-to-be jumped on board the balloon wagon and grabbed one of her own. Alas, it would not be long before utter tragedy struck.

Behind her, her son inched closer and closer. He raised his plastic sword to his clueless mother’s back.
