funny parenting booksPeople. If your kids have made it to the toddler stage, you know that being a parent requires a sense of humor.

Between the crazy antics of toddlers (today, I had my toilet seat colored with lipstick and bedroom toilet papered — all while I was just 10 feet away) to the insane things you would never think you would be doing (picking up human poop in the corner of your living room — please tell me I’m not alone). If you aren’t laughing, you are crying.

These years are short in the grand scheme of things — so might as well laugh your way through them. Here are 10 good reads from authors who are parents and get it. Load up the Kindle or purchase a good ol’ paper back and enjoy these books filled with laughs for parents.
