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 the time for more than 140 characters, anyway? Not us. So here you go — the funniest tweets from parents on Twitter this week. #YoureWelcome
1. It’s important to have an exit strategy.
4-year-old: What should I do if there's a bear?

Me: Get Mom.

4. Guilt. It works every time.
5: Dad, you busy?
5: Real busy?

5. AKA heaven.
Instead of gold at the end of a rainbow, moms will find a nap, a maid and someone to listen to their kids talk about video games all day.

6. Barbies can get so out of hand.
Motherhood is finding your face towel on the floor because some little person used it to clean up a rager in the Barbie dream pool.

8. The incompetence of some people …
Me: Find your shoes and put them on or we'll be late again.

9. Close, but no cigar.
My kid thinks the "Cleanup Song," is what he sings to entertain us while we pick up his toys.

15. We vote happiness.
When I leave the house, I now have to decide, do I want to run into someone I know when I'm not wearing real pants, or do I want to be happy
