There are some things in life you can’t know until you know, and no matter how much time you’ve spent around other people’s kids, the dark and unholy truths about parenting is one of those things.

If you’re a parent, you know these 11 tweets are too real.

If you’re not, you’ll still think they’re funny.

11. Your teen will absolutely love it.

And I mean, they will hate it and you.

10. She knows exactly what she’s doing.

They always do.

9. They need water like a man in the desert.

Also a million other things.

8. Or possible his father.

But probably the kid and this is hilarious.

7. She’s just making sure it’s fine.

And showing him how it’s done.

6. It’s terrible when they work in tandem.

But also you’re kind of proud.

5. Where are the smells coming from?

It seems impossible to track them all down at once.

4. They can be really mean.

And sweet. Like sour gummies.

3. And then he thinks you’re insane.

Those little heathens know exactly what they’re doing.

2. Now that is a sick burn.

At least she’s learning history.

1. She learned from the best.

He’s not going to get mad at her, though.

I think they’re funny and they make me want to cry and make another cup of coffee.

Two reasons… first, I know these are so true. Second, I like caffeine and I need more of that to get through the day.

Okay, but enough about me! Let’s hear what you have to say!

Let us know which of these speaks to your soul… in the comments!
