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 140 characters? Not us. So here you go, the funniest tweets from parents on Twitter this week. #yourewelcome
1. Child for sale.
Sick of never finding Legos in your bed?

DM me today about my Child Loan program!

2. How do they do it??
Me: "You're going to bed in 5 minutes."
6yo: *bends the laws of space and time to make 5 minutes last 4 hours*

If you're really desperate for a babysitter, YouTube videos of 1st person POV Disneyland rides can do the job in a pinch.

4. Like mother, like daughter.
The fun part of having a toddler in your 40s is that when you're laughing and jumping around at the park together you both pee your pants.

6. Oh … well, wow.
4 sampling Jello for the 1st time: "This is great! We should make it into a Jello drink!"

7. For realz.
If I could go back in time, I would definitely cash in on all of those naps that I never took as a kid.

Me to my 15yo: Can you please hurry up and turn 16 so you can go get ME ice cream for a change??

9. Toddler life can be stressful.
My kid just screamed "DAMMIT!" and rage-quit his Legos so, no need to fear he was switched at birth, he's definitely mine.

4: What about the rest of us?
Me: Find your own bathroom

Me: If you don't clean your room you can't go to the sleepover tonight.
7: No. If YOU don't clean my room you don't get any quiet tonight.

I do my part in promoting world peace by keeping my kids indoors on days where they haven't napped.

There's not much difference between 2 kids and 27, home destruction wise, but congratulations on your second pregnancy.

Parenthood can have it's dark moments.
Like in this closet where I'm hiding eating my cake.

15. They can’t possibly still be thirsty!
How many times can we ask for a glass of water before mom & dad get pissed?
Kids everywhere every night.
