Yes, being a parent is the most rewarding, joy-filled, eye-opening experience you’ll ever have. But also: It’s insane. If you’ve got little ones at home, then surely you can use a laugh. (We gotcha.) Here are 10 hilarious tweets from parents this week. From super-obnoxious toddler toys to never-ending mealtime battles, these tweets are bound to make you LOL.
1. Cut out the middleman
There's nothing I've learned from being a father that I couldn't just as easily have figured out from setting all my money on fire.

Heard a loud noise downstairs and shouted "you ok?" at my kids, so I'm for sure winning at parenting today.

5. Where’s the sun?!
Rainy days used to be a great excuse to veg out. Then I had kids.
If I don't find them something to do ASAP, they'll burn the house down.

8. Oh, toddlers
Husband: "How do the kids keep getting sick?"

Shout out to whichever childless person invented toys that erupt in an epic sound and light show when you toss em in the toy box at night.
