I love it when parents pen funny tweets about parenting. I love it when they write reflective tweets, too, and deep ones and sometimes when they’re pithy.

There’s nothing I love more than getting down to the nitty gritty, though, and these 15 parents are keeping it real.

15. You can maintain their innocence for a few more years.

Or until they look up the trailer on YouTube.

14. Funny how they don’t give you that option.

The teachers don’t get one either, though.

13. There are no good answers.

Just, you know. Enjoy the moment.

12. He knows which one was his, too.

Trust me on that one.

11. Eventually the ride chugs back into the station.

Or so I’m told.

10. Seems legit.

I’d buy the book.

9. They don’t even realize they’re doing it half the time.

That doesn’t change the facts, though.

8. Some day you will share a knowing glance over the hedge.

Unless she’s smarter than you have been.

7. Bless their hearts.

Get those teachers some good gift cards for the holidays.

6. To be fair, they are both.

And the latter this is super handy.


5. You just never know.

And I mean. He’s a potato.


4. Sure, why not?

I’m sure they’re smart enough to frame it as some kind of lesson.

3. You have to pick your battles.

Sometimes it’s just not worth it.

2. This stuff is hard on all of us.

At least the parents can drink.

1. There are no shortage of wonders.

Protip: Do NOT flush their poo without asking.

We’ve all been there, and that’s why we love tweets like these so much.
