The struggles of adulthood are real, people. Those little rugrats can push people to the edge of sanity if they don’t take a break to vent once in a while.
These parents took to Twitter to share their pain.
Moms and dads, do any of these stories sound familiar…?
1. Nice thing to wake up to.
Of all the terrible ways to be woken up I think, “mommy, my fart is on the floor,” takes the cake. ??

2. Avoid at all costs.
Thanksgiving Pro Tip:
Never eat any food offered to you by an adorable toddler relative. It might look like a cookie, or piece of candy, but it’s actually the flu.

3. Money well spent.
Me: *spends time picking out stuffed animals I think my daughter will love and get attached to*
My daughter: *sleeps with and carries around a lemon*

4. We have big news!
My husband and I decided we don't want to have children.
We will be telling them tonight.

5. All parents dread this.
*Loud crash from another room*

6. It never ends…
[at my funeral]
MY KID: *leans into my coffin and whispers* can i play a game on your phone?

7. How could you?
I accidentally flushed the toilet instead of letting my kid do it which in the toddler community is a crime punishable by death.

8. Very good.
Me: What's the first rule of cooking?
4: Don't put your hands in your butt.

My 9-year-old daughter has taken an old lip balm tube and filled it with cheese so she can eat it in class. pic.twitter.com/YEAqZx2wnr

10. It’s all coming out.
No one makes more observations than a child sharing a stall with his mother inside a public restroom.

11. Following Mom’s lead.
Me: *annoyed that 3yo never wants to get in the bath and then never wants to get out of bath*
Also me: *procrastinates getting in the shower because comfy and lazy and then doesn’t want to get out of the shower because comfy and lazy*

12. I lost.
me: sorry we're late
teacher: it's ok
me: she didn't want to put on pants
teacher: where are her pants?
me: she won

I was reading to my kids today and in the story, there was a pregnant woman.
My 3 year-old asked, "What happened to her belly?"
I replied, "There's a baby in there."
3 was horrified; "She ate a baby?!"
Sensing a good opportunity, I said "Yes."
Sleep well tonight, kid.

14. Don’t even bother.
50% of parenting is just trying to decide if that noise is worth walking up all of those stairs.

15. You said that out loud.
At 2 1/2 year well check for my toddler:
Pediatrician: Is she mimicking behavior? Like, pretending to make phone calls like you do?
Me: Like pretending to shave her lady parts in the shower with a toy razor?
