Pinterest is the new mecca for us creative types. Love decorating? There are boards for that. Love books? You can showcase your favorites. Need style/fashion/life inspiration? You’ll find it all. Spending time on this site brings us back to the days of making collages and dream boards, and we’re not ashamed to say we’re obsessed. Whether you’re already pinning to win or haven’t taken the plunge yet, these 50 parents (see the full list here) will wow and entertain you with their boards — we know this because we follow them (and think you should too). When choosing our favorite 50 parents on Pinterest, we focused on the overall quality of their page, not solely on how many followers or boards they have. Are their boards engaging? Helpful? Unique? Like any major list, it was extremely difficult to narrow it down, so please, if we forgot someone you love please nominate him or her here. Happy Pinning! — Amy Levin-Epstein & Dara Pettinelli

- #1 Humor
The What’s What: Jenny’s boards are a random mix of fashion, humor, and art, but the one that really stands out is “Kick-ass Stuff.” From portraits made out of screws to Splash Mountain photo pranks, this is one curation on Pinterest that will leave you cracking up and in awe at the same time.
The Mama: Jenny’s satirical, sassy, and seriously funny. She’s the woman behind The Bloggess, a columnist for the Houston Chronicle, and her first book (a memoir), Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, just came out in April. Aside from entertaining the masses, she’s a wife and mom to Hailey, age 7. She also mothers Posey, Rolly, and Ferris Mewler — all kids of the feline variety.
