If you can’t laugh at your situation, you’ll end up crying, right?
I’m specifically talking about the challenges of parenting and how raising those little angels can drive you up the wall sometimes. You love them unconditionally, but sometimes you wish a relative would take them off of your hands for a week. Or a month. Or maybe even six months.
Do I speak the truth about that, or what?
I think I’m speaking your language…
Enjoy these funny tweets about being a parent and we think you’ll catch yourself nodding your head in agreement…
1. It really is a double whammy.
But what can you do…?
Kids are both the bringer and stealer of life's joy.

2. What a great kid!
Now go clean their mouth out with soap!
Me (a good, responsible parent): WHAT THE FUDGE!
My 6yo (proving me wrong): Did you mean to say fuck?

3. Now that’s a meal!
That is one smart kid.
Me: what do you want for lunch?
3yo: a pickle.
Me: a pickle is not a meal.
3yo: two pickles.

4. It’s a part of you.
And that’s nothing to be ashamed of.
3yo: mama I love you so much, my favourite part of you is your phone.
Fair point. We are basically fused together.

5. Signs are not looking good.
But don’t give up on her just yet.
My 4yo was watching TV with her talking baby doll. She moved slightly and the doll said "I'm hungry, mommy!"
So my 4yo gets annoyed and says "Ugh! Again?!"
Then gets up, walks to her play kitchen, grabs a banana and throws it at the baby.
Grandkids might not be in my future.

6. You have to do it.
There’s no other way around it.
Dad Law: If a baby hands a dad a toy phone, he will stop what he’s doing and take the call.
“Hello… What??? That’s crazy!… Yeah? You need to talk to the boss? Sure thing… Here. It’s for you.”

7. It works every time.
This is some great parenting advice.
Got my kids to play outside by yelling for someone to bring me toilet paper.

8. You need that alone time.
Even if you are getting your teeth drilled.
I went to the dentist ALONE for an hour this morning and returned home feeling like a new woman, so that should tell you everything about being a mom

9. Time to load up on the booze.
It’ll take the edge off…
Him: Wow, you’re buying a lot of wine. Are we having people over?
Me: No, but we have 4 kids, remember?
Him: Let’s get some vodka, too.

10. Superheroes need a break, too.
It’s true, look it up!
Why is my son sleeping on the floor like this? LMFAO pic.twitter.com/JYe0tBeQN7

11. False advertising.
It’s time to write the CEO of the company!
Dear toy companies stop telling me your product will provide hours of family fun it will provide two minutes of interest followed by ten tantrums and exclamations of THIS IS BORING

12. Sounds like a great day.
Kids have quite the life, huh?
I'm always baffled by how excited my toddler is to get out of bed every morning until I remember he's going to spend the day playing, napping, and being waited on. I'd be excited too.
