S___ My Kids Ruined

The blog may operate with the motto "The strongest visual birth control on the market today," but S___ My Kids Ruined feels less like a compilation of scowls than smirks. Touting dizzying images of destroyed houses and cars and broken electronics and toys — and the occasional poop disaster — which are submitted by horrified mothers and fathers, the blog offers definitive evidence for just how careless, and costly, kids can be. But look closer at many of the woe-is-me captions and there's a lighter side — a cheery recognition that boys will be boys and girls will be girls. Beyond all the stuff that was destroyed, what is a parent to do but shrug, laugh it off and share the pics with fellow parents who can nod along in bemused sympathy?
