Everyone with kids is here for the parenting content, right? There are barely any other reasons to sneak a toe into the internet waters these days, what with so much crap going on all over the world.
But we’ve got your back – no need to worry or search, because these 11 tweets are all you need today.
11. It’s all downhill from there.
I’m sorry to report that you’re turning into your father and there’s nothing you can do.
My son found a dollar in a book and I made the dad joke “See, it pays to read.” And now I’m very opinionated on how my lawn is cut.

10. At least he made an effort.
And I mean, he PACKED books and that’s a start.
My 4YO packed his own bag for a 4-day trip. It had one shirt, ten pairs of socks, no underwear, and a bunch of books he will definitely not be reading, so he’s already a better packer than my husband.

9. Who introduced her to Honey Nut Cheerios?
My bet is on Dad or Grandpa.
Sorry I’m late. My daughter just realized she’s been eating regular Cheerios instead of Honey Nut Cheerios every morning for the past 5 years and she hates regular Cheerios.

8. The mantle was passed.
Or thrown out the window.
I thought I was a micromanager and then my daughter turned 4.

7. You can say this even if you just grew them without help, too.
It’s all a sacrifice, kid, now go use it.
8: I’m bored
Me: play with your brother or sister
8: don’t want to
Me: ok we spent thousands of pounds on fertility treatments to get them for you so you need to fucking play with them

6. That’s how you know it’s working.
At least, that’s what I tell myself.
Parenting is a lot like my job. There’s a ton to do, very little sign of progress, and I checked out at noon.

5. You swear you just closed that one, didn’t you?
Yes, you might be going crazy. But probably not.
if you can spend most of the day turning off lights and closing cabinet doors that you have just turned off and closed then motherhood might be for you

4. Super helpful, thanks.
If I could do any of those things, I already would be. Duh.
Me: parenting has me overwhelmed
Therapist: take time for yourself, practice self care, slow down
Me: so there’s nothing I can do?

3. Don’t learn from your father, kid.
That’s not the way to get one of these newfangled girls.
My kid just asked if he could take a break from helping me out in the kitchen.
He’s slicing half a cucumber for salad.

2. Honesty is the best policy.
Just grit your teeth and accept the consequences of your actions.
My 3-year-old looked at me and said “Mommy, I don’t like cooperating.” She’s more honest with herself than most people are these days.

1. You learn to appreciate what you have.
Because yes, it can always get worse.
At this point, the only thing longer than 2020 is the story which my 7YO is narrating

I told you, didn’t I?
