“I don’t need a laugh!” said no mom or dad ever. When you’re a parent of young kids, a sense of humor is crucial. Actually, without it, you just might cry. Enter Twitter. From weather woes to the real reason moms check for monsters, here are this week’s funniest tweets from parents. We’re all in this together.
1. Good mama
A Good Mom:
Shows her children love and respect
A Great Mom:
Shows her children love and respect… and how to pick up THEIR OWN DAMN LEGOS

2. Checking for monsters
Admit it. The reason we make our kids look under the bed for monsters with us is so we can use them as a shield if we actually see something

3. Sounds fun
I took my kids' screens away so we could spend some quality time together and it turns out they are really terrible to be around

4. The tables have turned
6yo got a doll that talks, eats, cries, and poops. Within an hour she was begging it to be quiet.
Karma's a bitch.

6. Joke’s on you
Nice try, irritating hold music, but I have children; so, my tolerance for listening to annoying noise is pretty high.

7. Kid math
Teaching my kid math like:
If swimming lessons start in 3 minutes and the pool is 10 minutes away, how late are we going to be?

8. Weather woes
Moms are never singing in the rain. They're too busy yelling stuff like, "Get out of that puddle for God's sake!"
