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. The. horror.
1985 Parent: punishes child by making them stay inside instead of playing outdoors.

Decorating the house for Christmas because I have kids and I like to watch them break things.

3. Buckle up!
Life might be like a highway for some people. For those of us with kids, it's more like one of those crazy roads in Bolivia, where you have no idea what's ahead, and you're scared as hell. #parenting

Putting up the Christmas tree this weekend because life with a toddler isn’t dangerous, messy, and terrifying enough already.

12. We got this.
I think the fact that I’m no longer Googling something every hour about my infant speaks to the type of mother I am becoming: fairly competent. #momlife

Buy the kids toys they said… They'll play with them, they said… Bunch of lying, liars, who LIE! Give them a free box, or a shoe crate and they're happier than ever. #nologic #kids #laugh #momlife #mommylife #mom #parenting
