The days are long, and even though the years are short, that promise can feel a bit far off sometimes.

In the interim, finding ways to laugh with our fellow child-rearers is the way to add a little levity back to those endless twenty-four hour stretches.

So please, let these 15 hilarious parents remind you that we’re all in this together.

15. It’s like the whole world is out to get you.

Why are recorders still a thing??

14. That’s what we’re all thinking in every meeting.

Most of us manage to not scream it, though.

13. And pretending you have no idea what’s wrong.

Talk about panic.

12. Get your creativity working, people.

It’s good for the mind.

11. You know she was just being cheeky.

Or you need to rethink her education.

10. You must look interested the entire time.

Otherwise she might start over.

9. A harsh lesson in the ways of the world.

He’ll figure it out some day.

8. They’re just delightful.

Also, enjoy the break from being the “favorite.”

7. They just never got around to it.

And look at them now.

6. Narrator: She did, in fact, believe it.

That little sh%t.

5. She’ll never believe it.

But one day she’ll be going bald, too.

4. The worst part is when it’s you.

Self-loathing is so real.

3. He got you, there.

Nothing more to say, really.

2. Those are the moments.

You don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

1. Just because he could.

But also because he could sense your panic.

What a great way to pass five minutes of your day, right?
