Dispatches From the Parent 'Hood: Top Tweets 'O' The Week

By Monica Bielanko |

"Children are our future. Gross."

There is a wealth of articles about every aspect of parenting to be found on the internet, including right here on Babble.

And yes, it’s amazing to have access to all this information, to be able to relate to our parenting peers and know that we aren’t alone as we figure out what the hell we’re doing as we try to raise productive human beings.

But sometimes, it can be overwhelming.

Sometimes, well written as it may be, it isn’t a wordy article you need to help get you over the potholes of parenting, it’s 140 characters or less.

Sometimes, all you need is a huge belly laugh. To realize that we’re all in this together, all of us dealing with the same peaks and valleys of parenting.

And the belly laughs, they are there for the having! Twitter is rife with parents like you and me regularly killing it with their parental observations. Nailing the beautiful nightmare that is parenting in just a few words. Words that make me feel better about my own slog through the parenting ‘hood. Poopy underwear, clipping fingernails, waking up with a kid staring menacingly into your eyeball, it’s all here.

Even if it’s just because I shake my fist to the heavens and mutter SO TRUE through huge guffaws, sometimes a single tweet can affect me on a scale much grander than the most intelligently written essay.

In case you aren’t sure where to find the latest and greatest on Twitter, check back here every Monday and I’ll round ‘em up for you.
