If there’s one universal truth about parenting – from pregnancy to childbirth until forever – it’s that it’s not for the faint of heart. It takes a toll on your mind, your body, your ability to get a decent night’s sleep, your sanity, all of it.

So what’s wrong with getting a few jokes at the expense of our kids now and again?

Nothing, I say – we’ve put in enough work to expect a little something in return – and these 15 hilarious parents surely agree.

15. I mean he’s just keeping it real.

You know you tipped your mental hat a bit.

14. Two minutes is being generous.

At least your kids can be alone in the house that long.

13. How long until she gets it?

Maybe never.

12. It’s not nice to tease adults with chocolate.

That’s pretty funny though, for real.


11. One of those things that’s hard to argue.

Except you’re the one who has to clean the toilet.


10. Happens to the best of us, kid.

Not usually when we’re sober or in the middle of the day, but still.

9. Kid is a quick learner.

I mean, you might have to kill him, but.

8. It wasn’t in your imagination…

Or maybe it was, who can tell anymore?

7. Tread lightly, child.

What is wrong with these kids?


6. Hahahaha if this isn’t the realest thing.

That’s one way to make death funny.

5. Always looking for an angle.

Wouldn’t that be cool if you could just change the tap, though?

4. That little shit.

I doubt it would be as fun as he thinks once he’s a teenager.

3. The epitome of being a grown-up.

At least she can cut up her own apples now.

2. I mean…it’s a kitten.

He should probably sleep on the porch.

1. I mean that is totally fair.

Candy or chocolate is obviously the only acceptable reward.


I’m dying because they’re all so true, y’all!

What’s your favorite one? Is it because it’s literally happening to you right now? Do tell!
