There is more than one saying out there about how you have to laugh so you won’t cry, or that laughter is the best medicine, or you have to laugh or you’ll just lose your shit…or maybe those are all kind of the same thing.

All I know is that when it comes to 24/7 parenting with young kids (or older kids, or any kids), knowing there are other parents out there doing it all along with you can really make all the difference.

So please, sit back and have a half at the expense of these 15 parents…because today, it isn’t you.

15. This just warms my heart every time I see it.

I need to get my kids some friends so they won’t need me to play with them all the time.

14. “Oh, you already ate? I guess I’ll just cook that delicious gourmet meal I had planned tomorrow night.”

Wash, rinse, repeat…just don’t forget to stock up on cereal.

13. Sure, that’s a good try, kid.

Time is relative anyway, so.

12. I don’t understand why whispering is so hard.

But I do understand why it’s good that you can hear what you under-five is saying at all times.

11. Dads don’t make the rules, they just follow them.

How would you know you were talking to a dad otherwise?

10. We go back and forth on the talking thing so many times over the course of 18 years.

We can’t wait for them to talk, then we can’t wait for them to shut up, and on and on.

9. If you have little kids, they’re all broken when you do find them.

Also so are the crayons and why do none of the markers have lids?

8. Yes and remember they will always repeat everything you say.

So watch it. I mean, if you care about that sort of thing.

7. Ah, so it’s not just my 3yo.

He would eat cookies and popsicles all day and then wonder why his stomach hurt if I let him.

6. One day they’ll be gone.

You can have hobbies and a clean house, at least until they want you to babysit the grandkids.

5. The penguin might smell worse.

In theory.

4. Someone is cruising for a bruising.

It’s like he knows nothing about his own mother.

3. Hardy har-har I would expect nothing less.

Dads gotta dad, y’all. Like I said.

2. Parents definitely need to know how quickly a toddler can bust something.

It’s directly related to how much you’re willing to pay for it.

1. Cat parents really take this whole gig very seriously.

And honestly cats just don’t care one bit.

These are slaying me! Kids are so great and also so awful all at once, right?
