Zoe vs. Famous Literary First Lines: Quiz & Giveaway

I'm doing my first giveaway today! (Cue the confetti.) If you're like me, you love free things. Also, if you're like me, you love to read. And so my giveaway involves a quiz about books.
I'm going to give you ten famous first lines from literature but rewritten as if viewed through the prism of parenthood. The first to guess the source for all of them will win the prize.

Famous First Lines from Literature (if written by parents, or their children)
1. It was the best of times, and then we decided to have a kid.
2. Through the fence, between the curling flower spaces, I could see my five-year-old hitting another child.
3. Call me "my feet smell."
4. The five-year-old was spiteful.
5. In my younger and more vulnerable years, my mother gave me some advice that I've been ignoring ever since.
6. As I awoke one morning from uneasy dreams I found my bed transformed into Grand Central Station.
7. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single toddler in possession of a toy must be in want of a toy in another kid's hands.
8. The whining child thinks this is the saddest story I have ever heard. 
9. A screaming comes across the Chuck E. Cheese.
10. For a long time I delayed going to bed early.

Hold up. It says here that if you keep asking they'll eventually give in.

And a bonus one that sums up my life:
11. What made me take this trip into the bedroom?

Be the first to guess all eleven and I will send you one of the books, though you've probably read all of them already, right?
Zoe: 118; Universe: 0
