If one thing is essential as a parent, it’s a sense of humor. When you’ve got little people waking you up at all hours of the night and find yourself randomly covered in (someone else’s) bodily fluids, the ability to laugh at the ridiculousness is key.
Thankfully with social media, parents don’t have to go it alone. Nobody gets the insanity that’s parenthood more than the moms and dads of Twitter. If you need a laugh, here are 10 of the funniest tweets from parents this week.
1. The perfect excuse
Our Roomba rolled over a worksheet my 5-year-old was doing for school.
A robot literally ate her homework.
What a time to be alive.

Being a mom has taught me I'm not afraid of screaming "MAKE SURE YOU POINT YOUR WIENER DOWN!" in public places.

5: What's it like being a grown-up?
Me: You can still run and play and jump around, but now it's called "exercise" and it's not fun anymore

8. Grandparent problems
Me: "You kids aren't getting any more toys until you take care of the ones you have!"

The first thing I'm going to teach my future grandchildren is how to slam doors for no reason. Then how to turn on every light and walk out.
