Few things can bond complete strangers together like talking about the shared trials and tribulations of parenthood. From changing stinky diapers and mediating toddler tantrums to sharing spit-covered snacks and late night snuggles, parenting truly runs the gamut of emotional experiences. One minute you're pulling your hair out, and the next second your heart feels like it's going to burst with unconditional love. Maybe that's why it can be both reassuring and hilarious to read the most relatable and funniest tweets about parenting.
Whether you're a new parent or you've been in more "mommy and me" playgroups than you can count, it's always nice to feel like you're not alone when it comes to crazy parenting moments. It's hard to remember a world before social media existed, and even harder to picture our modern world without it. Perhaps that's why platforms like Twitter are so successful at making people around the world feel connected.
If you're in need of a good laugh (and let's be honest, who isn't?), then you'll probably enjoy reading some of the funniest tweets about parenting. From #lifegoals to #breastfeeding and every hashtag in between, there's practically something for everyone to relate to on the wonderful, worldwide web.
Just realized all 5 members of my family actually bathed today. Don't worry, I'll still remember you all now that I'm all fancy schmancy.— Pails and Fires (@pailsandfires) March 22, 2016
We made it more than 6 years before one of the kids stuck a hand in the toilet, which, all things considered, isn't that bad.— Jen Simon (@NoSleepInBklyn) March 25, 2016
Asked to switch seats on the plane because I was sitting next to a crying baby. Apparently, that's not allowed if the baby is yours.— Ilana Wiles (@mommyshorts) February 12, 2014
An easy way to explain parenting is like when my toddler asks for a bubble bath and then screams because her bubble bath is too bubbly.— Court (@Discourt) March 24, 2016
I have the house to myself tonight meaning I don't have to share my tacos with anyone, so don't tell me dreams don't come true.— Tired Working Mom (@WorkingMom86) January 21, 2016
Overheard my husband telling my daughter, "You have to find just the right man." Walked in the room & realized they were building Lego cars.— Amy Shearn (@amyshearn) January 4, 2015

Get in the car
What my kids hear:
Have a snack
Shriek like monkeys
Open 3 umbrellas indoors
"DON'T PUT YOUR FACE IN OTHER PEOPLE'S BUTTS!!" Actual thing I just said to one of my children. More than once.— Stephanie D (@StephDsays) March 17, 2016
I just figured it out. If I wake up 3 hours before my kids do and then never sleep ever again, I think I can finally get everything done.— Cray at Home Ma (@cray_at_home_ma) March 8, 2016
You'd think my husband would like it when my 8yo beatboxes as I do the robot but NOOOO he's on a "conference call" and we're "distracting."— Kim Bongiorno (@LetMeStart) March 7, 2016
My toddler is always trying to get me to play catch... with our tv remote control when I'm not looking.— The ParentNormal (@ParentNormal) March 20, 2016
