Rainn Wilson is not only a hilarious actor, he’s also a dad. Wilson and his wife Holiday Reinhorn have a son named Walter, and Wilson routinely takes to Twitter to share the hilarious realities of raising a child.
Here are some of Rainn Wilson’s best parenting tweets.
1. Finger skaters.
What's cuter? The ice dancers or the fact that my son calls them 'finger skaters?'

2. You idiot!
My 11 year old son just tried to teach me that “discrete" and “discreet" are 2 words with 2 separate meanings. Idiot.

3. No longer my child.
My son just announced that he's a Yankees fan. Anybody want a nice, white 6 year old?

9. See you in The Grave.
There is a popular mall in LA called 'The Grove'. My son calls it 'The Grave'- which seems more appropriate.

10. That’s kinda depressing.
My son just told me I look like a fat "Wolverine."

11. Killing it!
"why did the chicken cross the playground?" A: "to get his underwear." -Walters first made-up joke. It killed. Feel free to use it.

I taught my son what U.F.O. stood for & what acid was on the same day. #fatherhoodrules

14. Most likely…
If my son ever asks you for a password, 9 times out of 10 it's 'Mario,' 'Yoshi' or 'Luigi.'

15. Father of the Year.
Sometimes I feel bad about myself & then I just tell my son that he will never amount to anything & I feel better.
