They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and this statement most certainly rings true when it comes to raising a toddler. After you've fished a Barbie doll out of the toilet and successfully cleaned the maple syrup out of your 6-year-old's hair minutes before her soccer game began, there's pretty much nothing you can't handle. Being a parent is basically like being a superhero but without receiving any of the praise or adoration. It's a ton of work and requires putting yourself through endless sticky situations, as made clear through this week's round-up of funniest parenting tweets.
Your life is no doubt fueled by 15 minute naps and countless cups of coffee, and the last time you've had a solid night of sleep was probably around three years ago. All of your shirts are most likely stained in one way or another and you're pretty sure the weird rash you've developed on your back is stress-induced. Yes, you're exhausted, but being a parent pretty much ensures that you'll never live a day without any laughter or excitement. Sometimes it takes hearing or reading about other parents' struggles to remind yourself that it's definitely okay to laugh at your parenting woes sometimes.
