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
1. Where did we go wrong?
It was when my son said he wanted be a YouTuber when he grows up that I realized I was a failure as a parent.

2. You can’t make this stuff up.

3. But first, cartoons.
My kid refused to hug and kiss me this morning because, "It's not a school day, and my cartoons come first."

4. Gold star!
I see people posting pics of their kids and how proud they are and I'm like " my kid wasn't moody 25% of the day so that's an achievement "

5. Summer staple.
I'm glad I bought my son a cute summer wardrobe so he could wear the same Super Mario t shirt for 23 days in a row.

6. Now that’s cold.

7. It’s like magic!
One of my favorites of being a parent. Putting away an object for it to reappear 30 seconds later.

8. At least they’re focused.
Being a parent is getting to ball practice and ur kid realizing they forgot their uniform. But they did remember to bring 3 fidget spinners.

12. Sweet dreams.

13. Cuppa confusion.
My toddler cried because I filled her blue cup instead of her other blue cup
I dumped the milk into the other cup
Now both cups are ruined

14. Where fun reaches new heights.
Playroom full of toys ✔
Bedroom full of books ✔
Garden with a trampoline ✔
Where does my 3yo want to hang out?
The stairs. #parenting

15. Snot cool.
Why does my son constantly use me as his personal Kleenex?
— Lauren Nelson (@DoubleLNel) August 8, 2017
16. Serious cardio.
Dr.: Do you exercise?
Me: I have toddlers.
Dr.: Ah yes, kids make it hard to find time.
Me: No no. That is my exercise. #momlife

17. It’s the end of an era.
This weekend will go down in history as the one where my toddler learned that the "music truck" also sells ice cream #parenting
