We love to laugh at (or with) other people experiencing the same (or similar) stage of life that we are. It makes us feel part of a community, and that we’re not alone.
That’s one of the reasons, I think, that parents love to giggle at what’s going on in other people’s family lives. It not only relieves some of the tension of the days, but it also connects us to families like our own.
If you’re needing any (or all) of that today, check out these 15 pretty funny tweets!
15. Ah, those were the days.
Some things we’re never going to miss.
I really miss my son texting me from school to let me know he didn’t like what I put in his lunch.

14. She’s not being biased, either.
It’s actually a fair song.
My kid wrote a song called,
“I Wonder What’s Inside your Butthole” Quite honestly, it slaps. pic.twitter.com/A65m6XeZ2r

13. Your wife’s name better not be Karen.
But yeah, that was a self-fulfilling prophecy right there.
Told my 4yo to stop being such a Karen and she promptly informed my wife.

12. I hope he repeats that to a teacher one day.
A teacher who is also a parent and will immediately know what’s transpired.
My son asked me what does WiFi stand for & I told him it's named after its inventor William Filliam

11. The kids are clearly not all right.
Or maybe they are. Who can tell anymore?
My 7 y.o. put on a suit for his class Zoom this morning. My wife told me I needed to go see it so I popped my head in to grab a pic. He was concerned I was going to interrupt him and flashed me the “I’m on a call hand signal.” It took everything I have not to bust out laughing. pic.twitter.com/lBJgkuyDRh

10. The whole time you’re just thinking about the crumbs and how you’ll have to wash your sheets now.
But also kind of thankful that at least you’re still in bed.
My kids brought me breakfast in bed, then proceeded to eat MY breakfast. If that doesn't sum up motherhood I don't know what does.

9. They have an inaccurate sense of time.
But sometimes it feels more right than the “real” one.
My 4yo used the phrase “a long time ago today” to describe the morning and it’s probably the most accurate description I’ve ever heard.

8. This is quite clever and I am here for hacks like these.
Sometimes you just need 5-10 minutes and an actually hot cup of coffee.
I just wanted five minutes to drink my coffee so I sent my kid in the other room to look for a toy that’s in my pocket.
Follow me for more parenting hacks.

7. If you don’t drink, just scream inside your heart.
That’s what they do in Japan.

6. Well this is the best thing I’ve seen in ages.
He’s also a better dancer than I am and he barely has control of his head and limbs.
Bruh!! She recorded her baby’s reaction to her dancing and I cannnnttttt 😍😍😭😭😭😭 pic.twitter.com/jimuisv90P

5. I am so tired of making breakfast.
Frozen waffles every day! For every one!
I used to like making breakfast for the family on Saturday morning before we had 60 Saturdays in a row.

4. My 3yo regularly just runs into walls.
And I’m expected to be sympathetic and not laugh at him you guys.
They say we are the dominant species but a baby zebra can run within minutes of being born and I just saw my 2 year-old fall on his face while standing still.

3. Just ask Alexa.
She’s recording everything you say, of course, but it’s a small price to pay.
Not a single parenting book prepared me for questions like, "Did oranges get their name from the color or did the color get its name from oranges?"

2. My dog chewed up my only good bra the other day.
It’s a sign from the universe, I think.
Have kids so that you can see your dogs running around your house wearing your only clean bras.

1. When you realize your parents spent a lot of time making fun of you in private.
Don’t believe them if they say they didn’t. You know the truth now.
being a parent is hearing your kids in their rooms and suddenly realizing that your own parents heard you talking all that shit in your room and just pretended like they didn’t

I’m laughing and just glad that (for now) it’s not me!
