Parenting may be one of the greatest things we’ll do in our lives, but it’s also one of the absolute hardest. We’ve all got to find ways to get through the days and years with our sanity intact, and if you ask me, laughter is one of the very best kind.
These 9 parents obviously agree, because they’re sharing really funny moments with the rest of us – so let’s dive in!
I really hope someone films it.
How else can we all bask in the glory?
Not my 9 year old telling me she’s having a problem with a boy at school so they’re having a rap battle tomorrow 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

I mean bless his heart.
He just wasn’t prepared.
A girl the same age as 12 came over the other day with her mom. 12 doesn't know what to do with cute girls so he walked outside and sat in my parked car….at our own home…in 90 degree heat.

At least the comedy is free.
Let’s get married and have kids so instead of a romantic candlelit dinner we can repeatedly tell a 6-year-old balancing on one knee to “please close your sandwich.”

That was rude.
Which is of course right in a 4yo’s purview.
Good morning to everyone except 4 who told me his pancakes taste like paper towels.

We’ve never thought about it before.
How do you answer that one?
It’s amazing how kids can stump you with questions that have such obvious answers. My daughter just asked me, “what is 5 minutes” and I had no idea how to respond.

Bedtime is exhausting.
I rarely make it through awake.
5: Let's play hide-and-seek!
Me: FOR THE LAST TIME…you are in bed. It's time to sleep. I'm going back to the living room.
5: [from his room] Ok, but you're not supposed to tell me where you're going to hide!!

We’ve forgotten our own childhoods.
Funny how that works.
This morning my 7 year old told me off for not brushing my teeth for a full 2 minutes, and, well, I had no idea sounding like a parent was so annoying

Now there’s an idea.
Talk about a protip!
I buy my kids cereal based on which kinds my vacuum cleaner will be able to pick up best.

I’m sure they have their way, right?
All language has sweary words and sounds.
A nature hike with an 11 y/o can be a great opportunity to discuss deep questions they have about the world that you never even pondered like, “Do you think animals swear?”

Pretty funny, right?
