I think parents are so funny on the internet because we have to laugh at the silly things that happen in our mundane lives – otherwise we might lose our minds.
It makes sense, then, that other parents might benefit from these little snippets into other people’s realities, too, and that’s why we love sharing our favorite recent parenting tweets.
These 11 are too good to mess up!
11. I’m sure it’s the doctor’s fault.
Definitely nothing you did as a parent.
I took my son with me to the Doctor as my sinuses have been crazy. He proceeded to say to the Doctor "my daddy has a yucky science infection". The Doctor laughed and rubbed his head and gave him a lollipop. My son is 32 and wont move out please help my wife and i we are desperate

10. Promises, promises.
You know they expect you to control the weather.
The weatherman said there was 0% chance of snow this week so to get my kids to fall asleep last night, I promised to take them sledding today. Because I’m a fun mom who plans ahead.

9. That seems fair.
Doesn’t he know anything?
Fired my daughter’s math tutor when he said she wasn’t giving 110%.

8. It’s a brave new world.
I don’t even know what the rules are anymore.
My son routinely showing up late for class when all he has to do is roll out of bed and press a button on his computer in order to be “in class” let’s you know just how far the apple falls from the tree in this family

7. 4 year olds are the best.
It’s a sweet spot, for sure.
This morning I asked my groggy 4yo if he was still sleepy and he replied that he’s “not charged yet” and dammit I can’t think of a better way to put it

6. I think that’s pretty brilliant, actually.
You gotta take it to their level.
Explaining Inauguration Day via Frozen’s coronation day is top notch parenting.

5. The fathers are invisible.
Unless they want to wrestle.
Why can't you ask dad?
-a mother's ballad

4. I think we all know the answer to that question.
I hope him and his wife made the right choice.
The prospect of six weeks of home schooling = immediate and urgent discussion about whether my wife and I can realistically stick to a dry January.

3. He’s definitely got her number.
Kid’s been paying attention.
My 3yo wanted me to use my real money to buy pretend food, and then complained I was buying the wrong pretend food, so I think he's going to be a stockbroker

2. I mean high fives are great.
Just ask David Puddy.
As a general parenting principle (to be used only for good), the more high fives you can incorporate into any activity, the more likely the kid is to enjoy it and want to try again.

1. Make sure you act like it’s really impressive.
You should have plenty of experience with that by now.
My 7 year old just showed me how she can wink. With both eyes. At the same time.

It’s so nice to know that we’re not alone, don’t you think?
