If you’re like me, you follow several hilarious accounts on Twitter that are dedicated to making us all laugh about the slog that is the daily parenting battle.
How else shall we get through it, besides laughing (or crying or drinking) together?
We won’t, which is why we didn’t want you to miss these 13 super funny and relatable tweets.
13. I think it’s just called “owning a toddler.”
I’m hoping 4 is the magic number?
When your kid asks for waffles and you make them waffles but they cry because they don’t want waffles so you make them cereal and then they scream when you eat their waffles that’s called a 2020

12. All of those brave, clueless souls flocking to the campgrounds.
You think cooking three meals a day, plus snacks, at HOME is hard?
With amusement parks, zoos, movie theaters and more closed, camping is one of the last family-friendly activities you can safely do. Still, no thanks.

11. Every single time you think they might be ready for a big kid cup.
Spoiler alert: They are not ready.
Optimists see the cup half-full.
Pessimists see the cup half-empty.
Parents of toddlers see the cup spilled all over the floor.

10. I would have no clue.
That’s what my husband is for, I guess.
Look, I dropped my 8yo’s Lego plane and had to put it back together exactly how he made it so don’t tell me I don’t know what stress feels like

9. Show, don’t tell.
It’s the best way to get your point across.
My daughter asked me what marriage was like and I nodded and said that sounded great. Then she asked me if I was even listening.

8. I’m sure your father will take you.
He already does whenever he’s in charge for five minutes.
Me: *being lowered into grave*
My kids: Can you take us to McDonald’s?

7. This is the way it should be.
It’s no big deal and the noise is almost soothing if you ask me.
One nice thing about working with all women is I had to pump during a 4 hour Zoom call today and everyone was like “Fire up those tits and let’s keep going” I AM PARAPHRASING BUT IT WAS COOL/CHILL.

6. I’m filing this away for future use.
Parenting teens is going to be so fun!
Used punctuation in a text to my teen and now she thinks I’m mad.

5. The funniest things are amazing to them.
It’s always weird to think how many things are firsts for kids.
4yo: wow mom you're really good at putting glue on paper
Me: yeah I guess I am
Have kids so they can hype you up

4. Tomorrow they will be cutting your self-esteem off at the knees.
That’s how kids roll, man. Don’t get comfortable.
My 4 year old just got mad at me for not calling myself the Best Mom in the World, so if you’re looking for a life coach who’ll scream at you until you believe in yourself, have I got a recommendation for you.

3. We all know the truth.
But you should keep her guessing anyway.
I just looked at my daughter and said ”you're not the boss of me.”
She looked back and we had a good laugh and now I'm going downstairs to get her a snack.

2. I mean, that show is pretty amusing.
I’m guessing the 9yo’s information may not be as reliable, though.
Listening to my 9yo talk is exactly like watching an episode of drunk history

1. I’m sure that seems true to them.
Time for a history lesson, perhaps. Or a rundown on our contemporary nightmare.
My kids are halfway through the day that they can't use the internet. Sources* say no one has ever suffered this much in the history of the world.
* my kids
