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. It’s a lot of work!
It's like my kids don't even appreciate how much time and energy goes into constantly nagging them.

2. We’re afraid to ask …
Parenting is filled with wonder. Like wondering why your 4yo raced into the kitchen and quietly grabbed a handful of napkins.

3. When you gotta go!
Let’s go on a quest to visit every single public bathroom in every city we visit!

4. We wish we were kidding.
13: When will I know I'm an adult?
Me: When you have a favorite spatula.

5. We were wondering the same thing.
Me: I went almost all day without coffee.
9: Really? How were you so nice?

6. Winging it.
It’s only a matter of time before my kids realize I have zero idea what I’m doing and take over. At least I still have my mom stare #momlife

7. We’re thinking no.
If you haven't held out your cupped hand for your kid to puke in, are you even a parent?#momlife

8. Wait, it doesn’t?
My daughter on her ride to school: "Just because YOU laugh at your joke doesn't mean it's funny."

9. Mad dash.
Top three fastest land animals in the world:
3. Pronghorn antelope
1. Parent chasing a toddler who just removed their diaper.

11. Been there, baked that.
KINDERGARTEN MOM: sure, i'll bake 300 cookies and also, make flyers!
5TH GRADE MOM: i'll just bring a Costco pack of napkins

12. Um, that’s great, honey.
Jack: I had a bogey daddy
Me: Did you? Wait….had?
Jack: It's gone now
Me: Err…where has it gone?
Jack: Somewhere safe…#parenting

13. Music to our ears.
My kid has to pass a test in music class to be able to take home a recorder. Guess what we're not studying for this weekend.

14. Too close for comfort.
You know you have young kids if someone is trying to tell you something unimportant one inch from your face while you are reading this.

15. No rest for the weary.
Hey! Take that nerf gun outside! Don't shoot it in the *sound of shattering glass*
Saturdays are fun.
— Lurkin' Mom (@LurkAtHomeMom) October 28, 2017
16. Why do we bother?
I love cleaning the play room for 8 hours while the kids destroy the rest of the house so that it looks like I did nothing all day.

17. Mixed emotions.
Kids returned to school today. I missed them. Pickup in 10 mins, will want to give them back in 15. #Parenting

18. Where do they all go?
Hell hath no fury like a mom when she's folding laundry, staring at 498 tiny socks, and only 6 make pairs. #momlife
