The power of a good parenting meme is really something to behold – it’s got to be funny, timely, true (oh so painfully true) and depict a universal enough moment that it brings us all together to laugh at the banal realities of our everyday existence.

Not to get too philosophical or anything, but nobody is going to be writing (interesting) books about our daily routines, you know?

But if you’re in the parenting club, you’ll still want to laugh at those everyday occurrences, the ones like these 10…because if you don’t, you might cry.

10. You can try saying it.

But they won’t stop saying your name.

They really think we just fell off the turnip truck, don’t they.

Like how many IQ points you’ll lose.
