29 Hilarious Parenting Tweets That Pretty Much Sum Up Parenthood

Now that July is more than half-way through, this should serve as a reassuring sign that your kid's summer break is nearly half-way over, too. Sure, you love your kids, but the endless hours at the beach, fights over pool toys and the squelching heat are enough to make any mom go a little crazy. For parents, calling summer vacation a "vacation" is nothing short of comical. What part of hauling around a car full of screaming 6-year-olds to and from summer camp day after day is a "vacation," in any sense of the word? Luckily, however, other moms totally know what you're going through. Just take a look at this week's round-up of parenting tweets and see for yourself.

Summer break can really test a parent's patience, but one day you'll look back and marvel at the dozens of sunscreen bottles you went through or laugh about the time your 10-year-old snuck behind your back and ate an entire box of popsicles in one sitting. You're exhausted, but that's just part of the day's job when you're a mom. Try to savor every moment, because one day when your kids are finally grown, you're really going to miss these hectic summer days.
