People around the world might live their lives differently and might believe differently and parent differently, but if you’re a parent, there is a set of circumstances that you’re all too aware of, no matter the rest of it.
Which means that when things go wrong, or something strikes you as funny, or your kids are on your very last nerve, the only other people who can truly get it are other parents – and these 11 people are sharing, because they want you to say “I understand.”
11. Hey, style is very personal.
If my kid turns out as awesome as Dan Levy, I’ll be thrilled.

10. You have been diagnosed with “parenthood.”
Have some coffee and an ibuprofen for your back.
Been feeling a little moody and run down lately, so I googled my symptoms to see what I might have.
It’s kids. I have kids.

9. The dogs are hoping it’s from Chewy.
This picture is just too cute I can’t.

8. This is so true I could cry.
My house is never picked up for more than an hour.
How to keep your home clean:
1. Get your family out of the house
3. Never let your family back in the house

7. No instruction manual or anything.
Literally all their doctor cares about is if they’re gaining weight.
the hospital sending me home with a whole baby honestly showed very poor judgement on their part

6. This is a decent hack.
You could even listen to a podcast or audiobook while you’re in there.
If the kids can’t find something I say “I think it’s in the car” then I sit in the car for 10 minutes on my own pretending to look for it
Parent level: expert

5. I would book this today.
Tomorrow, too, and in a few weeks I’ll do it all over again.
Hear me out a party bus but it picks up other moms and we get to sleep while it drives around playing true crime podcasts and nobody talks to us or asks us for anything

4. That’s some quick thinking.
And he couldn’t stop eating leaves then, so bonus vegetables!
My son was provoking me by repeatedly shoving a dirty leaf into his mouth so I offered him “special eating leaves” and now he’s a 4yo enjoying a bowl of salad for dinner

3. I’m sure she gets that from somewhere.
I’m just saying.
When my 4-year-old gets mad at someone in our family she draws a family picture without them. That's the pettiest thing I've ever seen.

2. If that includes a bunch of ice cream then my mother is on board.
It’s a far cry from how she raised me, I can tell you that.
grandmas be like imma stay for a few days and reset your children back to factory settings

1. Outside is amazing to newborns.
Literally everything is new to them.
First time parents in Facebook groups be like:
“Looking for fun fall places to take my 3 month old.”
Just put her in the stroller and go for a walk Linda. She’s 3 months old. She literally doesn’t give AF about anything but getting fed.
