One of the greatest joys of my current life is having a toddler niece. Not to say I didn't enjoy her when she was a baby but, to be quite honest, having her as a toddler is so much cooler. From being able to hold intriguing conversations to hearing her make outfit decisions, I'm convinced that having a toddler around makes going through sleepless nights with them as a baby so much more worth it. Though I get to experience all the cool moments as an aunt, when I check out the parenting tweets about toddlers, I notice that there are some moments that I don't get to experience — and I'm not too mad about that.
As an aunt, I get to see my niece in her close to perfection form. Nothing she does can be seen as bad to me. She could cut off all of her mom's hair and I would still think "how cute." However, parents of toddlers (including my sister) have those moments of temper tantrums, smeared poop, and uncomfortable questions to tend to that may not be all that great to go through.
Regardless of the moments I don't experience, I still find a way to relate to the tweets that roll across my timeline from parents about their toddlers and I'm sure you will, too. So, if you need a little relatability or a chuckle, these 25 tweets will be perfect for you.
Nothing wrong about this.
2Me Not Crying
What's happening right now?
Asked my toddler if she wanted a drink. So naturally, her response was to scream, cry and drop to the floor as if being murdered. #MomLife— Caitlin Robertson (@cait_robertson) March 9, 2017
Or just fall down and cry. Whichever works.

Worst 20 minutes ever.
Well it was until I heard why you were up.

I officially go to bed before my toddler. He just talks to himself for hours in his crib. #momlife— Hayley Call Carducci (@HayleyCardu) March 9, 2017
Imagination on 100.

Apparently I'm not one of those moms that can do it all LOL 😂 #momlife
Hey, even Superman couldn't do everything.
Took me a while to figure out that "Santa Claus writer" in Toddler means "hand sanitizer." #momlife— Devon P. McGinnis (@DTPfromATL) March 8, 2017
Wait until they learn a new word next week.
Or pee-a-boo. Both work.
Nothing like taking a toddler to a restaurant to remind me why I never leave the house #momlife— Katie (@K8EA) March 8, 2017
All day, every day.
Well, are you?
Hard to take working out seriously when my toddler says "ribbit" every time I do a squat. #momlife— Ashley Archibald (@ash_archi) March 8, 2017

20Diets That Work
If you just want cavities and hunger pains.
Only half of my dinner made it to my plate tonight. I ate that half cold & with a plastic toddler fork. #momlife— the florkens (@theFlorkens) March 8, 2017
This is life now.
My toddler is upset that he can't fit through the dog door. #momlife— Alison Massie (@alisonmassie) March 8, 2017
I am too, buddy. I am, too.
23Wine & Cheese
"I'm going to make a delicious dinner." 2 hours and a cranky toddler later..."This cold mac'n'cheese pairs well with this wine." #momlife— Chelsey Mohundro (@lyons_chelsey) March 7, 2017
Mac'n cheese that is.
