Whether you're a new parent or have children who are fully grown, you understand that parenting can bring out some strong emotions at times. One minute your children could cause you to scream and pull your hair out, and then the next they're making you cry tears from laughing so hard. Both of which can be seen in this week's roundup of funny parenting tweets.
Parenting is just one of those things that makes you feel as if you have to be ready to change your emotions every second of the day. When I asked my mom what she loved about parenting, she simply said, "that I always have to stay on my toes." I didn't quite know what she meant by that at first, but as she explained, she revealed that she loved having to always adapt to what we felt and what we did. One minute she'd be upset with something we did and within a blink of an eye, we'd make her laugh. Simply put, parenting keeps you in your feelings all the time.
If you can relate to this statement — as many Twitter users could this past week — you'll find enjoyment in these 25 tweets pulled from parents all over the interwebs.
