Thank goodness for Twitter. Where else would parents across the world be able to come together to talk about the insane things they go through each day with their kids? From talking about the “joys” of snow days to the pains of watching Dora, these 10 parenting tweets from this week will have you cracking up.
1. A snow day… yay?
Kids: Yay!!! A Snow Day.
Parents: Shit…. a snow day.

2. Cellphone thieves
I can't wait for my kids to get cell phones so I can pay them back by stealing their phones & taking 238 photos of my left foot.

3. Get my age right
Things a 6 y/o boy won't do:
– say he's 6 if he's 6 & 8/12ths
– stop making that noise
– consider mediation instead of "blowing up bad guys"

4. Prepare for motherhood
The best way to prepare for Motherhood is to put Dora on TV for 9 months, set your alarm for every 45 minutes and throw food on your floors.

5. Brush your teeth
Not to brag but I think I just broke the world record for saying "Brush your teeth" the most times in a row ever. 🏆

6. Oh, to be a teen
My 17 yr old just woke up and asked what's for breakfast.
It's 2:42 pm.
I'd pay a billion dollars to be a teenager again.

7. Criminal defense lawyers for kids?
The school just called. Instead of picking up I googled BEST CRIMINAL DEFENSE STRATEGIES FOR 6-YR-OLDS. Now I'm prepared for the voicemail.

8. Oscar worthy
My kids' coughs are at their most dramatic & severe the second I ask them how they're feeling before leaving for school.
It's Awards Season.

9. Trail mix, anyone?
Found some granola and a M&M in my bra. Toss in a raisin, some nuts, & a dash of shame and I'd say I've got a nice little stash of trail mix

10. Not a bad joke
Our 6yo has begun making up his own jokes.
Wife: "Who's there?"
Wife: "Um. Uh. Ass who?"
