Being able to laugh with other parents about the ridiculousness that is day-to-day life with kids is one of the things getting us through these trying times…in fact, some days it’s the only thing getting us through.
If you’re in need of some giggles today, we’ve got good news – these 11 parents are coming through.
Sit back, relax and take some time for yourself and your funny bone.
11. Every single time, fam!
They’re still just babies.
4: Can we watch Elmo now?
7: I don’t want to watch a dumb baby show like Sesame Street

If I hadn’t heard does that make me old?

Teacher: Has anyone seen the news or heard or read what’s happening in America right now?
My 15yo: Kim and Kanye are getting divorced.

9. Until tomorrow.
Or an hour from now.
I suppose you can never be too young to make New Year's resolutions.
Today, my 3 year-old had a tantrum because his waffles were too fluffy & I guess he's determined to be my 2nd favorite kid.

8. The introverts among us are screaming.
There is not enough alcohol in the world.
9 finally ran out of things to say, but rather than shut up for 5 minutes she just calmly picked up ‘999 Recipes of the World’ and started reading aloud from the contents page. You have to admire her dedication to her craft.
Please send wine.

7. Any or all! Or none.
You can’t go wrong here. Oh wait…
I said "The baby's sleeping on me can you bring my my meds?" and my husband said "Which pill?" and I said "Surprise me!"

6. On this we are united.
Who would have thought that little punk would bring us together?
As divided as we are right now as a country on many issues, I think we can certainly agree on one thing: it was time for Caillou to go.#parenting

5. Hmm, that’s interesting…
Maybe she should wear it all the time, then.
I was lecturing my 5 yo about how he had to listen better. I went on & on & on, but I felt he was getting me due to his attentiveness and better than usual eye contact. After I finished, he reminded me I had a googley eye on my forehead from when we were goofing around earlier.

4. I see what she did there.
And it’s true.
The 8yo disrupted my sleep again, so I texted my mom at 2AM to ask when it stops.

3. Anything green is off-limits.
Is this his first day?
Sometimes I let my husband learn things on his own like the time he wanted to switch things up by buying the green tortillas. Did I mention we have a 3 year old?

2. It’s what makes marriages work.
That little girl is so lucky.
I told our daughter to “spill the tea” and my husband haughtily replied, “I think you mean spill the beans,” reminding me that no matter how uncool I am, I can always count on him to be even more uncool.

1. Here’s hoping it’s not one that sticks.
It probably will be, though.
My 6yo is asking for “a tarantula in a cage” for Christmas and I for one am grateful he thought of a cage but even more grateful that he has 11 months to forget he ever thought of it

Ah, another day, another batch of hilarious parents, and all is right with the world. Now I can go take a bubble bath and soak my troubles away.
Oh… wait… it’s 9:37 a.m. And my kids are screaming.
Nevermind… back to it.
But enough about me… what about you? Which one of these did you already share with a friend?
