Remember when we told you that sometimes as a parent you have two choices: laugh or cry? It’s true. Oh sister, is it true!
So today, we want to help you laugh! We’ve assembled some of our fav humorous parenting tweets and pins from the wide world of the Internet. You’ll know they were authored by real parents, because you can’t make this stuff up…
