Kids say and do the funniest things, but listen – we wouldn’t even know about them if their parents weren’t savvy enough to take to Twitter and share.
So it’s really a joint joking effort, y’all, and so let’s applaud these 12 parents for bringing the giggles.
12. No one knows what they’re doing.
This will either make you feel better or worse.
62% of parenting is improvisational theatre

11. You will never have that again.
And half of the time it will get spilled on the floor.
Before having kids ask yourself “do I enjoy having a nice cold glass of water all to myself?”

10. That’s some impressive manspreading.

9. Oh, how the tables have turned.
I would much rather go early!
Husband: We have to be there at 8.
Teen: IN THE MORNING?!
Me: AT NIGHT?!

8. Joy and horror go hand in hand.
If you have kids, anyway.
my son spilled spaghetti sauce between the couch cushions, and immediately said "I guess it's the Marinara Trench now" and I have tears of joy

7. Now that I think about it…
I’m going home to rectify this today.
“You know what’s weird? We name all our pets but we never tell them OUR names” my daughter going deep today

6. So many terrible ways to wake up.
Kids somehow know them all.
Does anyone know when the Olympic kickboxing tryouts are? I think my kids stand a chance. Also, do they need to be awake?

5. It’s only cute for a minute.
Like a lot of things they do, honestly.
My kid has a fake laugh now hahahaha how do I make him stop?

4. Sometimes you just can’t help it.
It’s too ridiculous not to laugh at.
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.

3. Or out of a car.
Or off the couch.
Welcome to your 40s there is no graceful way to get off any Disney ride

2. Who would think to check this?
I wonder if she asked WHY or just let it go.
i unknowingly took my toddler to the museum with a shirt pocket full of scrambled eggs

1. It might be too early to tell.
We’re not convinced, though.
I believe the children are our future.
But my 3-year-old finished his juice & then got mad because he thought someone else finished his juice, so that future might be in trouble.

One of my goals is to make a list like this one day.
