There's nothing like spending time with kids. Whether they're your own, a part of your family, or just kids that you work with, you are almost guaranteed to have a laugh at some point every day. When the opportunity to hang around some little tykes isn't readily available, hoping on Twitter and checking out some of the funny parenting tweets might suffice. (I can confirm that they do.)
When people don't find amusement in kids, I wonder if they're really human. I mean, what isn't funny about a kid still living in the most innocent and imaginative times? Not only is it humorous, it's a kind reminder of just how great our lives once were because we too used our imaginations. Even for those non-parents — like myself — checking out some tweets about kids and how parenting is going for some will brighten your day, give you baby fever, or remind you just why you haven't had children yet. Regardless of the reason, you're sure to get a good, hearty laugh out of checking them out.
If searching hashtags isn't your favorite thing to do, never fret. This round up of this week's funniest tweets can be found below.
