There are many downsides to parenting in the age of the internet (the shaming, y’all!), but one of the major upsides is that you always know there are others out there fighting the good fight right alongside you every single day.
I mean, after you read through this list you’ll also know that those parents are funnier than you, but life is full of tradeoffs.
So, try to enjoy!
13. He probably heard that somewhere before…
I’m just saying.
My kid addressed my boyfriend as “big sexy beard man” and I felt like I should reprimand him for not being respectful but unfortunately I was laughing too hard

12. I mean it’s not the worst advice.
He’ll have to let us know how it turns out.
Dropping my daughter off at camp and she’s a little anxious. Told her to find the biggest camper and start a fight to establish dominance.

11. OMG I am dead, y’all.
This is SAVAGE.

10. He just needs better menu options.
Step up the offerings, parents!
10, every night at dinner: I won’t eat that.
10, on vacation at dinner: I’ll take the pan-seared branzino in lemon butter sauce with wild rice, thank you.

9. I mean, I don’t need the motivation.
But the recognition is nice.
My toddler clapped while I was eating my second piece of cake and this is the encouragement that’s been missing from my life.

8. Some advice is just laughable.
So go ahead and laugh at it. Right in their faces!
I love when I mention getting frustrated with my kids and someone’s like “have you tried TALKING to your kids?”
Omg thank you you visionary and here I’ve been communicating with fucking charades silly me

7. I’m not saying Disney will be more worth it, but…
It definitely won’t be less worth it, either.
We’ve officially spent more time planning our Disney vacation than we did naming our second child

6. The things they don’t tell you about before you had kids.
Or maybe they do but you just don’t believe them.

5. No, I won’t be going along.
They’ll be fine. They’re obviously survivors.
My kids & I have spent A LOT of time at home this past year, so I'm looking forward to when we can safely travel again. They have never seen snow & I want to take them somewhere to experience it. I hope they will love it. Because then, I'll leave them there.

4. This is more than slightly accurate.
Although none of us really know about being an adult.
My kids are playing grown-up. From what I can tell, it involves running around yelling "I'm late for work!" and going to the eye-dentist

3. Or before having kids, tbh.
They’re totally overrated.
Abs are short for Absolutely no way I’m going to see mine again after having kids

2. Hey, he ate it.
That’s called a win, my friends.
Tonight our 4 year old ate his dinner in a record time of 4 hours 27 minutes

1. Wow, he just woke up and chose violence.
The way only a very young child can.
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

I’m cracking up and also sort of crying, because that’s parenthood.
