Moms and dads…how are you holding up these days?
Any way you look at it, parenting is a tough gig and moms and dads all over the place know that those little angels have a tendency to drive you up the wall…even when they put on their sweetest face.
Parents, we have a feeling that these tweets will look very familiar to you…let’s take a look.
1. It’s not working.
Time to figure out a new technique.
I’m starting to think that maybe saying “hurry up, we’re gonna be late!” over and over doesn’t in fact help my kids hurry up.

2. What a cute name!
This is why you don’t let kids name ANYTHING.
My 5yo named her new kitten Penis. Penis is female.

3. Things are about to get LOUD.
You need to stop this before it starts.
Where can I sign-up in advance for my child to NOT receive a recorder?

4. It’s all going in there, baby!
It really doesn’t matter anymore.
Since googling foods that can be cooked in a waffle maker, the phrase eating 3 square meals a day has a whole new meaning in our house.

5. It’s way too early to deal with you.
Come back in a few hours.
Me: [sitting down on couch with first cup of coffee]
Child [coming out of bedroom]: good morn-
Me [pushing child back into bedroom]: NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

6. That sounds awesome!
Aren’t you having a blast?!?!
Let’s get married & have kids so instead of trying a pumpkin beer you can stop the crying while I go back into the corn maze to find the shoe.

7. We are all this baby right now.
Oh, what a year it’s been…
The speed at which our baby goes from smiling to scream crying is something I actually really relate to in 2020.

8. A creepy whisper.
Just give him what he wants.
I tell my toddler to "ask nicely" and instead of saying please he whispers his demands and I'm not even sure that he's wrong

9. What kind of sandwich, though?
That makes all the difference.
Fell asleep on the couch, woke up to my 2yo trying to feed me a sandwich. How’s your day going? ?

10. Let’s stop playing the Guessing Game.
At least for a few hours, please?
Kids really overestimate how much parents want to guess things.

11. It’s like Maximum Overdrive.
The machines are rising up against us!
My daughter just shouted, “I can’t go on living with this refrigerator anymore!” after it dispensed ice instead of water. While 2020 has been a pretty devastating year, the threat of death by refrigerator was wholly unexpected.

12. He’s catching on really fast.
You’re doing a great job!
I caught my son sneaking cookies and then he lied about it.
I proceeded to give him a lengthy lecture about honesty. I wanted to make sure he understood, so I asked him what it means to tell the truth. He said, "um, a rocket ship!"

13. Thank you, Captain Obvious.
Smart kid, right there.
The baby was crying next to me as I was trying to pick up his toy so my daughter casually points out “hey mom, baby brother’s crying” and goes back to doing her own thing, so yeah, captain obvious 100% takes after her dad.
