My daughter has been potty trained for approximately a month, and now that I've emerged from that battle victorious, I can look back on those tear and pee soaked days (or was it weeks? It's all a blur.) with fondness and pride over what the two of us have accomplished together. Just kidding. Potty training is perhaps the most necessary evils that exist in the parenting world and these tweets about potty training sum it up perfectly.
Whether you've already potty trained your child, are in the middle of it, or are just beginning to start the process these tweets will give you a sense of solidarity that yes, potty training is the closest thing to hell a toddler can throw your way, but it ends. And suddenly, your child won't need diapers anymore, and they'll pull on their Hello Kitty underwear all by themselves, and you'll look back with a tear in your eye and think "what I wouldn't give to do it all over again".
Again with the jokes.
Though potty training, like labor and teething, are all parts of the cycle of parenting, you can find comfort in the fact that even when you're soaked in pee and running to the bathroom at speeds you didn't know were possible, that other parents have been there too. You're welcome.

It's the dilemma of the ages.
