10 Parents Nail It In 140 Characters Or Less

By Julie Ryan Evans Mar 23, 2017

These ten parenting tweets have us nodding our heads, cracking up, and thanking our lucky stars we're not the only ones.

Face it, parenting is weird. Wonderful? Sure, but also confusing, exhausting and flat-out, unbelievably weird.

Sometimes after you’ve stepped on the 700th Lego, spent all your energy fighting a toddler about putting on their coat, or have been interrupted in the bathroom, all you can do is laugh.

Other times, there's Twitter. Here are the ten funniest parent-tweets of the last 30 days.

1. Gross? What's gross?

Twitter screen shot of @UnfilteredMama tweet reading, "Having 3 kids means I literally have no concept of what is or is not gross to normal people anymore."

2. Nothing happens without coffee.

Twitter screen shot of @DadandBuried tweet reading, "Trying to decide if I should have another cup of coffee or abandon my family."

3. It's a lightbulb moment.

Twitter screen shot of @BlacHershey tweet reading, "Sitting in a room with my husband and kids...Suddenly I realise everyone has been in my vagina. Wow"

4. Every single time.

Twitter screen shot of @martinisandmini tweet reading, "It amazes me how my kids can't find their underwear most days but can always find me when I'm going the bathroom every single damn time."

5. Wish someone huddled us up.

Twitter screen shot of @ValeeGrrl tweet reading, "Childless people considering having kids, take a knee. My son ties his penis up w the drawstring of his pants & I had to free it. Good talk"

6. Do you have what it takes?

Twitter screen shot of @MommieKnowsfresh tweet reading, "If you enjoy asking, 'Does anyone have to go pee pee before we leave?!' then have I got the job for you..."

7. Pretty much this.

Twitter screen shot of @sarcasticmommy4 tweet reading, "Being a parent is just basically walking around the house saying, "Clean up this mess!" until everyone is crying."

8. The rules don't apply to grown-ups.

Twitter screen shot from Kim Bongiorno that reads, "'BE NICE!' she bellowed at her children in what one might suggest was not a nice way whatsoever."

9. Ah, the unabridged toddler dictionary.

Twitter screen shot of @ParentNormal tweet reading, "I could start a Twitter account for my toddler, but I'll spare you the follow: Twee #1 "Snack!" Tweet #2 "Hold me!" Tweet #3 "No!" Repeat."

10. Bring 'em all if it keeps us moving.

Twitter screen shot of @LurkatHomeMom tweet reading, "Sorry we're late. It's "Bring your favorite stuffed animal to school" day and my son could only narrow it down to 307."

Life Insurance for Millennials

Blame participation trophies or the fact that many millennials entered the job market around the time the Great Recession hit, but millennials sometimes have a hard time shaking a reputation for being stuck in extended adolescence. The truth is, the generation that coined “adulting” as a verb has been grown up for a while now. Most millennials have already seen our 10-year college reunion come and go, or we may face the shock of hearing we’re experiencing a “geriatric” pregnancy (at 35, really?). As your life grows to include more responsibilities and loved ones who depend on you, it’s time to consider whether life insurance might be the right next step.
