I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the lookout for funny parenting content. Being able to laugh and also know that other people are out there getting it done under the same circumstances is what keeps me going, more days.
If you’re the same, these 13 funny posts from parents like you just might be the thing that gets you to naptime.
13. Her animals are more patient than mine.
Also, what is “relaxing” even?
ahhh the kids are in bed finally time to rel-
put away leftovers and do the dishes and water the garden and pick up socks and feed the animals

12. This is the only reason they want to help “make cookies.”
Mine hardly even eat the finished product.
My four year old loves eating sugar. I don't mean candy or sweets–I just walked in the kitchen and found him wrist-deep in the sugar jar, his face and shirt dusted white, like some Nickelodeon version of Tony Montana getting high on his own supply.

11. You can say she’s not the boss of you, but…
We’ve all seen the evidence to the contrary.
I just tried to go to the bathroom but my 4yo said I had to wait until we were done playing and when I said I couldn’t wait, she walked to the bathroom and closed the door and said, “sorry, it’s closed!” and I’m not saying parents have it bad but even in prison they let you pee.

10. It’s fine though.
We’re not slowly going mad. Swear.
Oh sure I practice self care. I had a full 30 minutes to myself three months ago

9. You’re too tired to look for it.
But don’t worry. Your mother-in-law will find it soon enough.
There is a lost bottle of milk somewhere in my house. Just sitting there like a rotten time bomb.

8. We have to get our kicks somehow.
And somehow we manage to forget what happened the last time.
Sometimes I like to make to do lists AND tell my kids what my plans for the day are so that I can fail in stereo.

7. Wait, is that something we can do?
It’s probably only reserved for kids. And husbands.
My daughter just put herself in timeout in her room because she was “done hearing other people’s voice noise.”

6. It’s even a tactic to stall eating dinner.
Every time I ask my son to do something he suddenly has to shit.
He’s prepared for marriage.

5. She thinks Mom is omnipotent.
It’s kind of sweet. Kind of.
3 asked me to tell her a bedtime story then yelled at me because it was about unicorns and not about a little girl at her pre school who I’ve never heard of and I tried to hand in my resignation but hr is closed due to the pandemic

4. You have to admire their minds.
You don’t have to like it, though.
5: Mommy, if the baby is in your tummy and making your tummy get bigger, what's in your butt making IT get bigger?
Me: *mumbling with mouth full of cookies* You used to be my favorite you know.

3. Seriously why are they like this.
Take a pile of books instead.
I told my husband that after quarantine we were definitely going on a vaca without kids. He was like ‘Hell yeah, so much uninterrupted sexy time. Finally!' It suddenly became clear that we have very different versions of our dream vacation & he’s no longer invited on this trip.

2. I’m sure everyone was very proud of him.
Or grossed out, if they’re child free.
In today’s episode of “WFH with 2x toddlers” I‘d settled my 2y.o on my lap, switched my camera on and begun presenting.
Mid presentation, on the corner of my screen I noted with horror, my 3y.o drag his potty out, remove his pants and sit down, before yelling “I DID A POO!”

1. Everyone learns that lesson the hard way.
To be fair, it is sort of funny.
My daughter just told me that “farts are funny” and then to prove her point she shat herself

Yes, this is why I wade into the internet these days!
