There’s nothing better in the world than having a group of people that 100% gets what you’re going through and where you’re at in life. That goes double when your stage of life is full of more trials than sleep, like it is especially in the early days of parenting.
These 10 parents are here for you, though, doing the good work of posting the funny interactions they have with their littles on social media so we can all have a laugh – so please, don’t pass this opportunity by!
10. You’ve gotta be careful with those old songs.
See also: nursery rhymes.
I thought it would be nice to sing something different and now my toddler is crying because Clementine is lost and gone forever

9. I don’t know how I ever managed to live without baby wipes.
Seriously, they clean everything!
If you don’t keep a huge stockpile of drive-thru napkins in your car, are you even a dad?

8. To be fair, I’m not sure they heard much at all.
They’re just doing what they do.
What I said: Please go downstairs and play, so you don’t wake everyone up.
What they heard: Take off all your clothes and use your shirt for a hat. Giggle uproariously in the hall. Leave my door wide open so I can enjoy the spectacle.

7. When it comes to teenagers, nothing is off the table.
Nope, not even blackmail.
I told my preteen I was gonna tell all her friends that she secretly loves side parts and skinny jeans and now she’s doing her chores without complaining

6. That’s how you know you’ve found your people.
There’s something comforting about it, too.
I was a little nervous before my Zoom call with a new client, but he said “My kids are fighting over Minecraft right now” as soon as he logged on and I felt instantly comfortable.

5. Terrifying, actually.
Have been since the day you got here.
5: Am I scary?
Me: You have no idea.

4. Why is this so eerily accurate.
The faces and everything.
Your kids: Saturday, 5am pic.twitter.com/v7uSafYr0Z

3. So many unexpected sentences.
You’ve got to have a good sense of humor or you’ll just break down.
“Please take the water balloons out of the bathroom sink and put them in the bathtub,” and other random things you might have to say in the morning when you have kids.

2. Hey, it works for most of us.
The simplest answer is usually the right one.
1st Child: I don’t feel well
Me: *googles symptoms, takes temperature, decides child has 50% chance of a serious catastrophic illness*
3rd Child: I don’t feel well
Me: Have a poop and you’ll feel better

1. Look at all of those teeth.
Humans are actual nightmares.
kids are so much creepier when you imagine all this shit happening under their faces pic.twitter.com/4ie63RYhIw
