From middle-of-the-night wakeups to constantly (no, constantly) finding food on the floor, let’s be honest here: Kids are crazy. That’s why there’s Twitter. Reading about other moms’ and dads’ trials and tribulations with their children can make our lives seem a teeny bit less nuts. And of course, it’ll make us laugh along the way. Here are this week’s most hilarious tweets from parents.
1. Best friends
5yo drawn a picture for his friend. Would be quite sweet were it not titled Devil vs Dog Poo! And I wonder why he doesn't get invited over?

2. Nice work, Dad!
Taught my 5 year old how to read a clock & now she's updating me on the time every single minute.
This may be the longest day of my life.

3. Cool tunes
I'm pretty sure psychedelic music was invented by parents who heard a kid's toy losing battery life and thinking it sounded cool.

4. Stinky kiddies
Me: How will I know when it's time for him to start wearing deodorant?
My entire olfactory system: It's time.#8andnotsmellingtoogreat

5. You know you’re a parent when…
One sign that you’re a parent, is not finding out about a new movie till it's shown in the electronics section at Costco.

6. One scary ride
The scariest theme park ride I can imagine is one where I watch my kids sit on a couch for 5 minutes with a full cup of juice and no lid.

7. Mom searches
Googled "Paw Patrol cast" because I couldn't think of Ryder's name. Because how would I get through the day without that vital information.

8. The art of re-gifting… kind of
-Mom, I'm probably never going to use this present
-Okay, well save it and I can re-gif…

9. Kids are like pancakes
Your first kid is like the first pancake. You're going to pay a lot of attention to it and you're still going to screw it up.

10. The thing about kids
Me: Ugh how can people live like this?!
Him: This is our house.
Me: What the Hell happened?
Him: We had kids.
Me: Oh. Right.
