If you ask me, there’s a reason parents are so funny – we’re sleep-deprived, and also we’ve learned that laughing is the best way to stop from crying into our third cups of coffee.
These 13 parents are hilarious, and luckily for the rest of us, they’re on social media – so please, let them make you happy. At least for today.
13. That doesn’t work on toddlers.
They’re never getting sleepy.
Hypnotist: [crying in a corner] why aren’t you getting sleepy!?
3 year old: I’m thirsty

12. They’ll probably be fine.
Hope you have good health insurance.
If I learned just one thing as a parent, it’s that by the 3rd kid they can be juggling samurai swords and hand grenades and you won’t care as long as they’re doing it quietly.

11. We have no more guesses.
We have run out by the time the oldest turns four.
Kids really overestimate how much parents want to guess things.

10. Time to stop watching Spy Kids.
Or possibly The Incredibles.
My youngest hacked our Netflix parental code. She put light grease on the remote and got me to input the code when she wasn’t looking. Then she noted the numbers I’d pressed and went through the combinations later. I’m both frightened and impressed.

9. He’s still alive?
Thoughts and prayers for my son who thought it would be funny to tell me “I’ll get to it when I get to it, woman”

8. Tell her to take a guess.
And then just nod, whatever she says.
Took my kids to the pediatrician yesterday and I told her we’ve barely left the house in 5 months and then she looked at me in all seriousness and asked how much screen time they were getting. I mean… c’mon, lady, read. the. room.

7. That kid knows what he wants.
But this is less adorable if you’re hi parents.
My son lost his tooth yesterday and I go to his room last night to grab the tooth in exchange for some $$$… And this is the message he wrote… 😒😒😒 with full on instructions 🤦🏾♂️🙄🤣 pic.twitter.com/jiMm5y9UF9

6. It makes sense!
I absolutely love this.
So evidently our 13 year old thought "primadonna" meant anyone born before Madonna (i.e. pre-Madonna). Please send oxygen. We cannot stop laughing. 😂😂😂

5. I can’t stop laughing.
Classic every kid ever.
We’ve been getting a meal kit service and 9yo has been gamely trying all of it, but the other day it was salmon, which I knew he’d never eat, so I made him chicken fingers from frozen instead. He was like “WOW, is this hello fresh? This is INCREDIBLE.”

4. Kinder teachers get all of the laughs.
Often at the parents’ expense.
*5 yo on her kindergarten Zoom class*
Teacher: "So what do you do before joining our Zoom class?"
5yo: "My mommy hits me and says 'do good!"
Me, no make-up, bagel crumbs on my face, unexpectedly joining the Zoom class: "SHE MEANS I HIGH FIVE HER HAND!!!"

3. We’re all a little frazzled.
But at least he got a good snack.
My son got hungry so I gave him a snack. His teacher is gonna say how he can’t eat and before I knew it, I yelled from the kitchen “Girl, he is at home honey!” & then there was silence…….

2. This has literally happened to me.
And probably every other mom in the world.
Me: (on toilet) Sweety, mommy needs privacy when she pees
3: ok (closes door and stands next to me with the dog)
3: we private now

1. Twenty minutes of entertainment?
I fail to see the issue.
My 2 year old and 4 year old have been communicating via walkie talkie for twenty minutes. They're in the same room. The walkie talkies have no batteries. Over.

I’m dead, y’all. These are just too true.
