Moms and dads don’t always have it easy. In fact, they rarely have it easy, which is exactly why funny tweets from other parents are pretty much one of life’s necessities. If you’ve got little (or even not-so-little) ones at home, here’s the laugh you so desperately need. Here are the 10 funniest tweets from parents this week.
1. It’s a new world
When I was a kid I would never have believed how much parenting in 2016 involves finding missing iPad chargers.

2. It’s the little things
My kids got off to school this morning without crying so it looks like I got my Christmas miracle a little early.

4: Did you know it's good to have role models to act like?
Me: Yes! And I totally agree!

I caught myself turning off the lights while leaving a public restroom. I've reached a new level of dad.

9. Sounds kinda nice
You know you're a parent when your husband is sick as a dog and is forced to stay in bed, and you look at him and think "You lucky bastard!"

10. Not a bad idea
I don't feel like making a holiday photo card, so I'm sending leftover cards from past years as part of a "vintage collector's set."
