If there’s one great way to start the day, it’s a hot cup of coffee that you get to finish before your kids show their darling faces.
If there’s a second great way to start the day, it’s with parenting content that will make you feel so seen and supported that the rest of your day – or at least the first couple of hours – will go off without a hitch.
Grab the first thing, and pair your cup with these 10 hilarious tweets.
10. She still NEEDS a nap.
They never WANT a nap.
Me: You need a nap.
4-year-old: *screams loud enough to shake the walls*
I stand corrected.

9. When they prove you’re right…
But you get no joy out of the moment.
Me: That doesn’t go there.
12yo: Why not?

8. I learned this when I was twelve.
And yet I still have fond nostalgic memories of the series.
All I’m saying is the babysitters club made me think taking care of kids would be a lot more fun

7. Having fun never comes without a cost.
Let that be a lesson to ya.
Me: do you realize in less than six months, we will have three teenagers? Three! What did we do to deserve this?
Him: well for starters we had sex
Me: ok, never doing that again

6. One of the worst things in life.
Other people eating kills me.
People who say “enjoy every moment” have never sat next to my kids eating chips.

5. No one is taking that bet.
Not even the no-gluten fanatics.
I'll bet cutting out gluten didn't change your life as much as forgetting birth control changed mine.

4. You’re not getting out of this one any time soon.
Sorry, this is your bed, now lie in it and read the right story.
3 asked me to tell her a bedtime story then yelled at me because it was about unicorns and not about a little girl at her pre school who I’ve never heard of and I tried to hand in my resignation but hr is closed due to the pandemic

3. Where did we go wrong?
Time to try harder. Ugh.
My son just literally ran into a trash can, then got up and walked around it to put his empty snack wrapper in my hand, if you’re wondering what it’s like to be a mom.

2. This kid is my Patronus.
One day I will say this exact same thing.
My daughter just put herself in timeout in her room because she was “done hearing other people’s voice noise.”

1. One day he will understand.
It will be too late for you to benefit, but he will.
Overheard my 5yo ask my wife why I was napping instead of playing. My wife answered that napping is how adults play and I fell in love all over again.

Are you feeling ready to tackle another day? I know I am!
It’s not like we have another choice, but still!
