Being a parent can be a hard job. Growing up, I saw the struggles that my mom endured raising us, and I'm pretty sure there were many moments of sacrifice that I'll never know about. Though there are many struggles that parents endure, there are even more moments that make being a parent worth it all. The majority of those moments come in the form of laughs, and this week's round-up of funniest parenting tweets prove just that.
Although I don't have any children of my own right now, I find humor in seeing my niece grow up and learn about the world around her. What's even funnier is seeing the way my sister reacts to being a new parent. Getting the calls about something funny that my niece has said and done is nothing but preparation for when I have my own children. Even when it's not supposed to be humorous, there are some things that happen that just deserve a really good laugh.
So, whether you have children or not, need your funny bone tickled, or just want to see how other parents rule at raising little ones, these 27 tweets will give you all the humor you're looking for today.
