29 Hysterical Parenting Tweets All Moms Can Relate To (Even If They Won't Admit It)


The beginning of August signifies two things: the soon-to-be end of summer vacation and the start of your child's school year, as well as the trials and tribulations that come along with it. This means that days spent at the pool will soon be replaced with days spent shopping for school supplies; sleeping in will be replaced with waking up at 5:30 a.m.; laughter will be replaced with complaints about homework. To provide you with a few extra laughs before you have to spend all of your free time carpooling a screaming car full of 8-year-olds, there are some hilarious parenting tweets from Twitter's funniest parents.

Summer is certainly no cake walk, but it always ends just as you're just starting to get used to the humid weather and appreciate the extra time you've gotten to spend with your kids. Being a parent is hard, especially so in the summer, but luckily these parents understand exactly what you go through each and every day. So sit back, relax, and enjoy these last few weeks of summer. Because let's face it, there really is nothing more excruciating than helping an 11-year-old finish a science project, and you might just end up missing these warm summer months.
