We all have those days when finding something to smile about can seem impossible.
Those are the days we need other parents to lift us up the most – only they can remind us how important it is to find the small bits of humor in our day-to-day lives.
These 17 parents are here for you, y’all, so please, take advantage.
17. I mean, it seems like good advice.
So…virtual school ftw?
Idk what this virtual school is teaching but my 9yo just yelled from the office
MOM DON’T EVER GO TO A BATHHOUSE IN ISTANBUL

16. This opportunity may not present itself again.
You have to do it for posterity.
I don't care if there's no trick or treat happening, I will be dressing up as the Mandalorian and the baby will be Baby Yoda all October.

15. He knows what’s coming.
That’s worrisome, tbh.
Me: I remember when you were in my tummy you would roll and kick me so much!
4: I was in your belly??
Me: Yep, and then you came out!
4: Then why is your belly still big?
Husband: Oh no

14. It’s funny, but it still hurts.
Right in the back, there.
Instead of blowing up things for a gender reveal party, the parents to be should hand out wallets. If there’s a dollar inside, it’s a boy, if there’s 72 cents, it’s a girl

13. Girlfriend is not wrong.
And I think she has a career in law enforcement.

12. He asked and she answered.
I don’t know what more he expected, honestly.
4-year-old: I can't find my shoes.
Me: Where's the last place you saw them?
4: My feet.

11. Especially if gifts are involved.
Especially if gifts from GRANDMA are involved.
It should be illegal for your kids to change their favorite color without giving you a 30 day notice

10. Sometimes it takes way longer than you’d think to find out.
You just freeze and hold your own breath while you wait.
The silence after your kid falls over is the worst. Because they’re either absolutely fine or filling their lungs with enough air to mimic an air raid siren.

9. I know what she means.
And yeah, those are cheap socks, Ma.
My 10yo rejected a pair of socks because she could “feel the polka dots” if you’re wondering what the girl from The Princess and the Pea is up to these days.

8. You can’t panic when they say things like this.
It’s probably not what you think.
4: Mom, how long was dad inside you?
Me: What the f-
4: Well??? How long was he inside you before you had him?
Me: Oh honey no I didn’t birth your dad, grandma did!

7. I can’t wait until she sings it at school.
That’s going to be a fun call with the teacher.
My 3yo wrote a song called, My Mommy Is So High. It's my favorite song because it's about me being taller than her.

6. We all do.
It’s not fair that there’s no follow-up to this tweet.
Last night, we were listening to Evanescence’s My Immortal and my 6 year old suddenly yells “SHE SOUNDS WORRIED WHAT HAPPENED DID A DUCK FALL OFF HER ROOF?”
And now I have many questions.

5. She has a point.
Keep your eye on that bear.
6-year-old: What if I accidentally used magic and my teddy bear became a real bear and attacked me?
Me: I don't think that's a real concern.
6: Maybe not for you.
— James Breakwell, Exploding Unicorn (@XplodingUnicorn) September 21, 2020
4. I literally can’t breathe.
This is fine, though. Totally fine.
Moms: We are drowning. Help.
Everyone: Wow you’re superhuman!
Moms: What? No. Can you just hel—
Everyone: I don’t know how you do it!
Moms: We’re not. Help us.
Everyone: OMG you’re amazing tho 😍😍😍

3. He has fans, though!
Don’t be such a hater.
8 has had his harmonica for barely a week and is already recording tutorials for his ‘fans’ so if anyone would like a class on how to sound like a cat choking on another cat hit me up

2. What’s funnier is she doesn’t think that’s a stretch.
Oh, to have the confidence of a 4yo.
My 4yo thinks she looks just like Elsa because
“they both have necks”

1. I think she got her wish.
This is sweet but also sigh.
Art teacher: draw a picture of your proudest moment and make it as detailed as possible so we can learn about each other
