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, anyway? Not us. So here you go — the funniest tweets from parents on Twitter this week. #YoureWelcome

13. Adulting isn’t nearly as fun.

Kids: How many more days left until summer?
Me: *literally all I care about* I only have to pack your lunch 6 more times.
