Parenthood is not for the faint of heart, and most of us quickly discover that being able to laugh about its twists and turns makes it a bit easier to handle.
The parents of Twitter totally get it and are never shy in letting out their frustrations and shortcomings, always making the rest of us laugh in the process. Here are some of the funniest parenting tweets from this week. Enjoy, and happy weekend!

8. Best game ever
Cleaning is more fun if you make a game of it, like How Much Kid Crap Can I Toss to the Curb Before They Notice. I just beat my high score!
