We all know there are plenty of things about the human race that aren’t the best, but I also think we can agree that one of the best things about people in general is a sense of humor. Laughter is the best medicine and all of that, right?
If you’re a parent, you know it’s also one of the things that keeps your kids alive and your liver healthy, so here – we think these 10 tweets are where it’s at.
10. Always ask questions of your parents.
They’ll get to it eventually.

9. I’m sure he clued her in.
Eventually, I mean. After the giggles.
Imagine my son's excitement at having written something all by himself. Now imagine my wife's disappointment when she read it. Now imagine how fun it was for me to listen in on their conversation fully aware that he wrote the 'd' in 'dad' backwards. pic.twitter.com/Wlh0BT8Ai3

8. He likes the peace and quiet. But not for long!
I feel this deep in my soul.
6's morning routine is he likes being the first one up. he sits on the couch with the dog staring at the wall. then he makes himself cereal. after he eats, he empties his part of the dishwasher. then he sits quietly with the dog until the loud ones wake up. i think he's 60

7. You’ve got time for a lesson!
But do you have the energy…
Told my kids to try to pack their own stuff for the cottage – so far each of them has packed like one shirt and eight stuffed animals….and my 5yo drew me a picture. Holyshit you guys it’s a good thing we don’t need to catch a flight.

6. They won’t forget.
Birds aren’t at all dumb, unfortunately.
My kids fed chips to some seagulls and now we have to go into the witness protection program.

5. Bless his heart.
It’s a good thing they’re cute, y’all.
5: mom, you’re six years old
me: did you just count the wrinkles on my forehead like rings on a tree?
5: look! you just got older again!

4. Definitely sus.
As the youths like to say.
My fourteen-year-old keeps asking me for cash like it's 1982.

3. Oh, the humanity!
Everything seems like such a big deal when you’re little.
Trip to the grocery store ended with 9 pledging to run away because we bought watermelon cubes, not slices like she wanted, in case there’s any Hallmark family movie writers out there looking for a new story line.

2. They really do think we’re dumb.
You can use that to your advantage, though.
Kids will straight-up knock something out of your hand and then ask "I wonder why you dropped that"

1. Get in that one last barb.
They need something to remember you by.
On my death bed:
Me: come closer children, I need to share a secret.
My kids: we’re here dad.
Me: write this down: put water in the ice tray and put ice tray in freezer overnight.
My kids: we know how to make ice, dad
Me: well, you had me fuckin’ fooled

Didn’t that feel good, y’all? Didn’t that feel special? Didn’t that warm the cold, icy heart that lives inside most of us?
Yeah it did!
