When you become a parent, you don't exactly get a guidebook. Really, you don't. And if you don't have kids yet and you actually think about what it would be like to suddenly have a baby and have to figure out how to take care of it, it's pretty intimidating.
Sure, you probably wouldn't try to make your child as tan as a strip of bacon simply because that's what you're into, but it's still possible you wouldn't be the most perfect parent right out of the gate.
Nonetheless, I can pretty much guarantee that no matter who you are, there's almost no way you could be as terrible a parent as any mom on our list of the Worst Moms of 2012 so take a look through the gallery and feel superior.
