Do you want to know what parents like to do in their spare time?
Well, I’m gonna fill you in…
They like to laugh at tweets from other moms and dads about the trials and tribulations of parenting!
It’s all true!
Just trust me on this one, okay…?
So, to all the parents out there, hang on tight and get to laugh…because this is some real talk.
1. You are now in the acceptance stage.
Hey, it is what it is, right? Just make the best of it.
What I thought I would say as a parent:
"You are going to change the world."
What I say as a parent:
"Stop licking the window."

2. This is some Grade A parenting right here.
You’re doing the right thing.
My wife just pulled me into the other room and I thought she wanted to have a serious talk but she just wanted to give me m&m’s without the kids seeing.

3. This is a good thing!
She’ll thank you later for letting her do this.
Somehow I’ve lucked out and have an 8yo who thinks secretly reading under the covers past her bedtime is an act of rebellion, and it hasn’t yet occurred to her that her flashlights never seem to run out of batteries.

4. This is why talking to kids is a lot of fun.
You never know what you’re gonna get!
I like having conversations with kids. Grownups never ask me what my third favorite reptile is.

5. I was buying it for a little bit at least…
Once I saw that you got your kids to bed early, I knew it was a lie.
Today I worked from home, ran 10 miles, homeschooled my kids, cleaned the house, made a delicious dinner, and got my kids to bed early. It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you lie.

6. This is when you spring into action.
A lot of close calls, huh?
You will never realize your full potential for speed and agility until the day you see your toddler holding a Sharpie marker

7. All parents need to take note of this.
You should teach a seminar!
I just yelled, “1, 2, 3 mommy is lava!” and my kids ran away, leaving me to drink my coffee in peace. I’m pretty sure I’ve peaked for the day.

8. Every parent figures this out at some point.
But it’s all true!
Spoiler alert: Kids are the most expensive free thing you'll ever have.

9. She’s gonna be 12 for a while, isn’t she?
Maybe until she’s in college…
I want my 13 year old to understand how important honesty is but also she is only 12 when we buy movie tickets.

10. The more you know…
Isn’t that just adorable?!?!
When a three year old gets all serious and looks deep into your eyes, you're not having a moment. They're just pooping.

11. You weren’t prepared at all, were you?
Hey, you gave it your best shot…
I don’t know why people say having a dog prepares you for having a kid because my dog has never wanted to watch Frozen 47 days in a row.

12. Funny how that works…
She has the eagle eye.
My 3 year old, who doesn’t notice her pants are inside out or that her shoes are on the wrong feet, can spot a diced onion in her food from 3 feet away
