Welcome to this week’s edition of Weird Parenting News! This week the parenting world is turned upside-down, as we feature moms acting like kids and kids acting like grown-ups… not to mention a Rubik’s Cube genius thrown into the mix. So get ready to play “Who’s the grown-up?” with this week’s top wacky parenting headlines.

A rotten egg. In Utah, a 44-year-old woman is facing charges for driving her daughter and friends around to egg people’s homes. The mom is being charged with “causing a catastrophe” — and a whole lot of property damage. C’mon lady, everyone knows moms are supposed to cook eggs, not throw them. Read the full story.

Sisterly bonds. In the UK, a pregnant mother of five began experiencing contractions. Her partner left to drop their youngest child with family. Immediately after, her water broke and baby started coming — fast. With no time to get to the hospital, the mom’s 11-year-old daughter delivered the baby, with doctors issuing instructions over the phone. Oh, and did I mention that after delivering her baby sister, she went to school? Read all about it.

Genius cubed. A ninth-grader in Maryland has set a Guinness World Record for solving a Rubik’s Cube in 4.9 seconds — making him the first person to solve it in less than 5 seconds. He set this record at a 2015 competition sponsored by the World Cube Association. I’m not sure which amazes me more: that there are Rubik’s Cube competitions, or that there’s a World Cube Association. Read about this amazing kid here.
