I know I’m preaching to the choir, but parents have a tough job. A lot of laughs, a lot of great memories, but also a lot of sleepless nights and rough days.
If you have little kiddos running around the house, I think some of these tweets will make you say, “Been there, done that.”
1. Isn’t this great?!?!
I'm so glad I brought my kids to the park so they can ask me for snacks non-stop somewhere different than at home.

2. Slow down, kid.
I don’t think our youngest has taken a single breath while telling us this story that started in 2012.

3. Not any better.
[Watching an educational show]
[3 year-old asks a million questions I have no answer for]
Me: Okay, let's watch Bugs Bunny instead.
[5 minutes later]
3: Why doesn't he hop?

4. Here we go again.
Become a parent so that your first reaction to someone screaming “OW!” in another room is to roll your eyes and sigh

5. Never a good idea.
Has anyone ever bought your kid a whistle? You might be entitled to financial compensation.

6. You went through with it.
We have channels for the first time and while watching cartoons with my 6 y/o he had to pee.
Him: Can you pause it?
Me: I can’t, it’s TV
Him: *pause* Ok then can you stop watching until I’m done so it’s fair?
Someone explain to me why I closed my eyes until he came back 😂

7. You can do it!
Before becoming a parent, literally no one prepares for the day you might have to pep talk another person into "making a poopy".

8. Major trauma in here.
I made my kids some Simba shaped pancakes, but my 2yo wouldn't eat Simba and she started crying. I felt like a savage telling her to eat simba, so I cut Simba's ears off, I realized my mistake when I saw the horror in her face, and now everyone is traumatized.

9. Ahhhh, a new phase.
Once you can send your kids to play in the other room without worrying about them dying, the second part of your life begins.

10. Go ahead and vent.
My 5 year old got mad that I told him to try a bite of French Toast because I think he’d like it. He said “you don’t know ANYTHING about my life!” Boy I been with you almost every second since your conception but go off I guess

11. Where do we go now?
DAUGHTER: I don’t want that for dinner.
ME: What do you want?
ME: …This is noodles.
DAUGHTER: I don’t want that.
ME: I don’t…I don’t know where we go from here.

12. The answer is ZERO.
My preschooler wanted me to play with her so she asked my wife for permission if you were wondering how much authority I have in the home.

13. A different kind of recital, honey.
On a road trip passing a billboard that says live girls dancing daily.
My daughter’s voice from the backseat, “wow, that’s a lot of recitals.”

14. Boom! Nailed it.
I finally found my sleep number.

15. A constant struggle.
Parenthood is serving regular meals of, “Dream big, my loves, for you can be anything” with a side of, “Please be less annoying” at least once a week.
