Parents can be petty sometimes, right?
You know that’s the truth!
And today we’re going to take some time to appreciate the moms and dads out there who are really, really good at being petty.
Check these out and maybe you’ll learn a thing or two…
1. Hahaha. Yeah, Mom!
Moms are always good for this.
my ex posted a pic of him & his newest fling on facebook, & the caption was “ain’t she pretty” & my mom’s petty ass commented “no not really” ??????

2. It’s all for you.
You showed them…
This is a good time for self reflection and goal achievement, like for example I didn’t know it was possible for me to eat an entire bag of pasta out of spite for my children who decided they no longer eat macaroni and cheese. Mommy wanted it all, motherfuckers

5. Time to tell them the truth.
You’re in charge! Do it!
So we’re going to do the whole Santa nonsense with our girls…
Am I petty for not wanting Santa to get credit for all the gifts that *I* am purchasing?

6. That sucks.
But it’s also hilarious.

7. Sounds like something my mom would do.
They don’t forget that stuff.
When I was in high school, my boyfriend dumped me and my mom still asks about “the asshole” just to make sure he’s not doing well and that’s 100% the kind of petty my kids’ boyfriends can expect from me.

8. This is good.
Parents, take note…
One of favorite moments in petty parenting are when I buy peanut butter items because my daughter hates it.
They won’t ask for what they don’t like and you can enjoy it in peace. pic.twitter.com/cVpEedVSMt

9. Sounds awesome!
You’re doing it the right way.
Have kids so instead of having a relaxing Friday night watching TV you can all sit down and argue over what movie to watch until you finally lose your shit and pick something no one likes out of spite.

10. Didn’t come from you.
6 said his friend handed him a note that said “You suck”, and he crossed out those words and wrote “You are nice” and handed it back.
I can’t take credit for this because I’m far too petty

11. Petty to the max.
You better believe it!
Few people are as petty as mothers in a PTA meeting or classroom parents on a group chat hitting the Reply All button ?
