If you’ve spent enough time around toddlers, you know that they can definitely be a major handful.
They’re stubborn and they try to do things their own way a lot of the times. Which leads to constant clashes and hilarious/challenging moments for parents.
And for us too, because parents of toddlers love to share this kind of stuff on Twitter, where we can all read it and laugh at them! Or with them, depending on which way you look at it…
Whatever the case, enjoy these funny tweets about raising toddlers.
1. You’ve created a monster!
Oh great…we really have to talk about this now?
A few weeks ago, I tried to literally bore my 3yo to sleep by telling him everything I knew about nuclear and particle physics. It's a fair bit, it was my speciality once. Every night since then, as he's falling asleep, his little voice pipes up: "tell me about atoms daddy."

2. Let’s shift our attention to this other issue.
Wouldn’t that be nice?
My kid has instituted mom hugs every 30 minutes for the entirety of Mother’s Day and I’m just saying it’s sweet… but like why can’t he apply this amount of dedication to flushing the toilet

3. You’re always on clean-up duty.
Pretty much for the rest of your life.
My kids are making Mother’s Day crafts for me right now. So I’ll be cleaning that up later.

4. The roles have been reversed.
What do you think about THAT, kid?!?!
2 found a calculator and is typing away very intensely on it
I call her name and I got a dirty look and a very nasty “Hold on!”, and back to typing
So I’ve decided to say her name 32 times, ask for juice 15 times, ask for 58 snacks, and have 3 meltdowns

5. Pretty much sums it up.
I thought that was for me?
My kids brought me breakfast in bed, then proceeded to eat MY breakfast. If that doesn't sum up motherhood I don't know what does.

6. Don’t lie about it.
Who doesn’t want pizza at all times?
Every single parent in the history of kid’s birthday parties who was offered a slice of pizza and declined really wanted that pizza.

7. There’s no escape now!
What the hell is that kid talking about?
my daughter said they should make vegetable cereal bc she really wants a bowl of crunchy broccoli w/ milk
im stuck in a house with this monster

8. Not hard at all.
Wait a second…
Me: What do you want to be when you grow up?
5yo: I want to be a mom because it's not very hard. All you have to do is take care of everything your kid needs.

9. You can handle that.
I’ll get right on that.
3 is mad because her feet won’t touch the floor while she’s on the toilet and she’s rage screaming at me to lift the floor, and you guys, turns out all I need to make her happy is just some floor-raising abilities.

10. You’re gonna be having cold coffee for a few years.
So you’d better get used to it.
If you give a mom some coffee..
her kid will surely need a snack
And once she gets the snack
He’ll surely need a drink
And once she gets the drink
he’ll surely need to pee
And once she takes him potty
She’ll go to drink her coffee
And her coffee will be cold. #momlife

11. It’s gonna be a long night…
Tomorrow sounds like it’s gonna be rough.
*putting 5 to sleep:
5: Mama… I’m having a nightmare..
Me: You’re not even asleep yet.
5: It’s a warning.

12. That escalated quickly.
Thanks a lot!
I was in a very bad mood today. Then my 3 year old walked over, handed me a rock, patted my face and said “mommy, you’re perfect, here’s a present for you”. And I smiled.
And then I realized the rock was a cat turd.
