No matter how prepared you think you are, parenting is a difficult job at times.
With the morning runs and school uniform among the things you have to think of, it can get draining.
Now one woman was left in stitches after she made the honest mistake of giving her son the wrong packed lunch.
Posting on Mumsnet, she explained how she was supposed to give her son pasta salad for his school meal.
But instead, he was given a tub of fat for the birds, yikes that's awkward.
She wrote: "I told DS [darling son] he had pasta salad for lunch. This evening he asked why we'd given him 'funny mashed potato'.
"Turns out the pasta salad was still in the fridge and he'd been eating a tub full of fat I'd saved for the birds."
She concluded: "Has anyone sent their child to school with anything worse or are we officially the worst parents on Mumsnet?"
One person said: "Ahahahahahaha!!!! Oh dear."
Another replied: "No, but this made me laugh out loud after a busy day! How much of it did he eat?!"
A third joked: "I'm surprised you didn't get a confused call from the school receptionist!!"
