Funniest Parenting Tweets

Laughter has always been important to me, but once I had kids, it became a necessity. A life force. I realized early on in my motherhood career that I don’t ever want a day to get away from me when I don’t laugh. I don’t ever want there to be a day when I don’t  take time out from the we-have-t0-get-more-diapers-what’s-for-dinner-are-the-dishes-done-I’ll-be-right-there routine to laugh.

And humor is everywhere. Certainly there are days when my kids provide comedic gold, but there are also many times when I look for it elsewhere. And I consistently find it on Twitter. Sometimes I think that a tweet is the perfect comedic forum. You get the whole joke, set-up, and punch line in 140 characters or less, so it’s an instant laugh. And for busy parents, it’s important to get that laugh in and quickly, please.
