If you’re a parent with a Twitter account, chances are you tweet about your kids — and often. Some of the things we’ve seen (the good, the bad, and the very, very ugly) are just begging to be shared, and who has the time for more than 280 characters, anyway? Not us. So here you go — the funniest tweets from parents on Twitter this week. #YoureWelcome
1. Cold hard truth.
Parenting in the winter is just four straight months of yelling "SHUT THE DOOR!"
— Abe Yospe (@Cheeseboy22) December 30, 2017
2. Approximately 7.442 billion, in fact.
Me: I’m the best mother in the whole world! Right?
My 8 y/o: well, there are a lot of people in the world. #momlife

3. Loud and proud.
If only the objective of parenting was to raise really louds kids, I would be killing it.

4. Timing is everything.
— Amy G Dala MD (@AmyGDalaMD) December 31, 2017
5. “Look at me!”
Instagram “Your video has been viewed more than 40 times!”
No, that’s just my daughter watching herself go down the waterslide on repeat.

6. Mixed emotions.
[Baby is screaming uncontrollably]
Me: This is hell, motherhood is hell, everything is awful, what was I thinking?!
[Baby suddenly stops screaming, makes cute noise]

7. What goes up …
A big part of being a dad is protecting your child from gravity. #RadDadLife

8. It’s been a long winter … already.
OK, TEACHERS, YOU WIN.

9. Tricky toddler.
— Niki ☕️ Toot's Mom (@tootsmomistired) December 30, 2017
10. There’s always someday, right?
Being a Mom is probably 25% looking at areas of your home that need to be organized, finding cute ideas on Pinterest, and never actually doing it.

11. Bless this mess.
In an effort to work smarter and not harder, I’m just going to leave any fallen shoes, utensils, food, my sanity, etc on the floor at restaurants until we’re ready to go. #2018Resolutions #momlife #toddlerlife

12. How dare they.
So annoying when I'm trying to tweet and my kids are all, "I'm hungry," or "I'm thirsty," or "I'm bleeding."
— Nayele18 (@nayele18maybe) January 1, 2018
13. Nailed it.
The way my toddler reacts to me coming up to his face with a tissue is the same way you’d react if I came up to your face with a nail gun.
— Kelly (@kelly_eberle) January 2, 2018
14. Lather, rinse, repeat.
*Washes face with revitalizing cleaner*
I don't think this is working….
— Walking Outside (@WalkingOutside) January 1, 2018
15. Pet wisely.
Nothing stresses me out more than watching a toddler stroking a cat in the wrong direction.
— Rupert don't want no scrubs (@citizenkawala) January 2, 2018
16. Every kid’s a critic.
I love when my kids tell me my car is a mess. Like thanks guys, maybe stop dropping all your food and crumbs on the floor
