When you’re the mother of picky eaters, mealtime can often be challenging. So, when Rebecca Brett heard her two beautiful little girls get excited over what they believed was “smiley face” pasta while shopping in the supermarket, she didn’t think twice about tossing it in the cart. It wasn’t until lunch time that she discovered that this wasn’t your average pasta—let’s just say it was more of a bachelorette party-friendly chow down rather than snack time with Paw Patrol on the TV. Thankfully for these kids, ignorance is bliss while we sit here cracking up.
Brett couldn’t keep this mommy mess up to herself—she took to Facebook with some adorable photos and the following caption, “Okay so the Mum of the Year award most definitely does not go to me today...Wandered down to the market and Ava begged me for some “smiley face” pasta she saw. So I bought it, cooked it for the girls for lunch today... Thought it looked a bit odd, re-looked at the bag and IT’S ONLY BLOODY PENIS PASTA ? How could I not even realise [sic] even while cooking it?! So my 3 year old and 7 month old are currently sat eating a bowl of dicks for their lunch. Life.”
We can’t stop laughing at how adorable both children are—they appear to be overjoyed about their “smiley face” meal making this moment pure gold.
Of course, it was only a matter of time until parenting content this good goes viral. The post now has 385K likes and over 190K shares, but the mother’s attempt at being transparent on social media has brought her plenty of backlash. Cue the mom shamers.
Brett faced all the critics head-on by adding to her post, “JUST A NOTE, I DID NOT EXPECT THIS TO GO VIRAL. MY CHILDREN ARE FUSSY EATERS AND DONT LIKE THINGS TOUCHING. THEY OBVIOUSLY HAVE MORE THAN JUST PASTA AND A VERY BALANCED DIET THANKYOU VERY MUCH TO ALL THE PARENT PREACHERS OUT THERE WHO FEEL LIKE THEY NEED TO TELL ME HOW TO PARENT MY OWN CHILDREN?”
We can’t roll our eyes any harder. It is sad Brett should be coming to the defense of her parenting skills due to two images. Those babies look extremely happy to us, and everyone needs to mind their own business and bask in the hilarity that is this scenario.
Thanks for sharing Brett, we have the feeling these photos are the kind you pull out and show your children’s friends during their angsty teen years.
