If you’re a parent, you know that life with an 8-year-old (or any kid for that matter) ain’t easy.
It’s a funny age where kids are starting to mature but they still have a lot of that crazy “little kid” in them.
Here are funny tweets from parents about the ups and downs of life with an 8-year-old kiddo.
1. He’s learning.
My 8-year-old son told me my veins on the back of my legs are looking better, thus showing me he really knows how to compliment a woman.

2. That really is sad…
Are you guys aware there’s a debilitating arm fatigue that can render an 8yo unable to do their chores.
Tragic I know.

3. Probably shouldn’t ask that.
My 8-year-old looked my mom dead in the eye and asked, "How long do you think you'll live, Grandma?"
She gets her social skills from me.

4. This is gonna hurt.
My 8 year old just walked up to my 6 year old and with a very poorly concealed hockey stick and said “lemme see your knees real quick”

5. Clearly, he’s a genius.
My 8 year old son is a budding scientist and he has shared with me this graph of the most powerful substances in the world pic.twitter.com/KU8rNqPZWZ

6. Think about that one…
8yo: I feel like you're always making up rules and stuff
Me: like what?
8yo: like if we don't pick up our room a portal will open and take us to another dimension
Me: well that's what happened to your older brother
8yo: what older brother?

7. I’m outta here.
once again, 8yo tricked me into believing she wanted a family movie night, when in fact she only wanted family movie night until the two huge bowls of popcorn were gone; then she peaced out to do some art

8. No comment on that one.
Stop talking trash about my family:
My mother is KIND
My father is GENEROUS
My wife is BEAUTIFUL
My toddler is ADORABLE

9. Good while it lasted.
Our 8yo said “I’m never talking to you again” and I gotta say the next 4.5 seconds were the most peaceful of my adult life.

10. Just do it.
8-year-old: You didn't pack chocolate in my lunch.
Me: You don't need any.
8: What if there are dementors?
Me: *packs the chocolate*

11. Most terrifying thing in the world.
Fear used to be a masked man breaking into my house at midnight. Now it's sending my 8 year old son into a public bathroom alone.

12. He might be on to something.
My 8yo woke up this morning and said “Artichokes are rude!”, and honestly he is probably right.

13. They grow up so fast.
Kids watching a movie with some 'adult language'. My 8 year old just said "Good thing we already know all these words." Where's my trophy?

14. Whoa! That’s pretty harsh.
my 8-year old nephew: *tells me a long story*
me: pretty sure none of that happened, you fucking liar.
