If you’re having one of those days when nothing is going right – your kids are acting out, your husband is pretending to be sick, the dog is barfing, or all of the above at once – it can honestly feel as if you’re alone in the world.
That’s when parents like these come in handy – they tweet about the craziness in their lives so you feel less alone (and more like you can handle your own madness).
10. The new way to do birthdays.
No friends, just cake.
My toddler is asking all her friends if they like cake. If they say yes, she takes them off her birthday party invite list because she doesn’t want to share her cake. I’m torn between extreme pride and anger that I never thought of this myself

9. Always suspect the cats.
They’re little hellraisers.
I’ve yelled at my kids every morning for weeks, because someone has been throwing q-tips on the bathroom floor at night.
Last night I got up at like 3am , I found the cat methodically sticking her paw in the q-tip jar , pulling them out, one by one and tossing them everywhere

8. You also remember your parents landline.
Possibly your grandparents, too.
You know you’re a child of the 80s when you can’t recall your kid’s phone number without searching your contacts, but you’ll never forget 867-5309.

7. Not mentally or physically.
We’re way too tired to feel anything but old.
To whoever came up with the phrase “kids keep you young” – I’d like to see the science behind this nonsense please

6. Well maybe not right now.
Who are we kidding, of course she is!
Me: [daughter], you’re so cute.
Her, a mouth full of blueberries: No, I’m terrifying.

5. This tracks.
And it even applies if there are two of the exact same things.
My daughter’s favorite toy is whatever her sister is currently playing with.

You know everything until that moment!
Parenting is easy until you have kids.

3. That lady has had a day.
Traveling with kids is no joke.
There’s a mom with her kids in this airport TGIFridays getting absolutely obliterated and I am here for it. She has had 3 glasses of wine and her kids have had 3 chocolate milks each. This is like watching a Nat Geo special on traveling with your kids.

2. It’s funny because it’s true.
You know I’m right.
The craziest thing about being a mom is how we’ll make friends with anyone who lives near us and has kids the same age. You just killed a lady and turned her hair into a wig for your grandma? No thanks. Wait, did you say your kid is 3? Mine too! Come for dinner on Friday at 5:00?

1. You’d better stop her right there.
Because you know she’s not going to stop.
5: mom when can i have a baby

5: like really big then, like giant, really really really big like-
me: i said OLDER
