If there’s one thing about parenting that I know for sure is true, it’s that laughter is the key to getting through absolutely anything. If you can find a way to unearth the humor in the wild and crazy every day, you’re going to be just fine.
To that end, these 10 parents are helping you out – so have a chuckle at the wild and crazy in their lives while looking for it in your own.
10. Living the dream.
How long do I have wait for that day?
There’s no better feeling as a parent than watching as your child grows and develops into doing more and more meaningful chores.

9. You don’t exactly mean to, but…
They make the decision for themselves, honestly.
parents say we don’t have a favorite child but then one of them turns to you and says “mom, you smell like cheese” and decisions are made

8. I mean those are things.
Not productive things, but things.
My husband took the kids out for the afternoon so I could “get things done”. So far I’ve eaten half a jar of jelly beans, watched a cat roll around outside and stared at the laundry pile

7. They do it to themselves.
Sometimes you just can’t help yourself.
There are people out there who are like "never, ever, EVER make your children feel like their feelings are invalid," but once my son cried uncontrollably because he couldn't get the juice back into his orange, so I'm just suggesting that maybe "never" is a bit extreme.

6. You can’t argue with a 3yo.
Just give in an walk away.
Playing paper, scissors, rock with 3…
Me: *Paper* I win
3: *bashes paper with rock*

5. Do you ask questions?
Probably not, because there couldn’t possibly be a good answer.
i unknowingly took my toddler to the museum with a shirt pocket full of scrambled eggs

4. There are no vacations with kids.
There are only trips.
I used vacation days, that doesn’t mean I had a vacation.

3. Just give me the gas!
And stop taking about Minecraft for the love of god.
Was just asked so many questions by a gas pump I had to check to see whether it was programmed by four year-olds.

2. Who would have thought it?
They even want your WATER.
Before having kids ask yourself “do I enjoy having a nice cold glass of water all to myself?”

1. That’s when you drop it.
Seriously just walk away.
7yr old: (in crowded aisle at grocery store) We only have a titbit of peanut butter left at home.
Me: It’s tidbit.
Me: I’m pretty sure.
7: No, it was on my show and it’s TIT! TIT, MOM, TIT!!
