With both parents and kids getting back into the swing of the school year, so much can be expected on both ends. Whether you're prepared for what parenting has to offer or if you're just getting into the way things roll, there are other parents who equally share both your joy and pain. Some of whom choose to voice their trials and triumphs for the world to see, as seen in this week's round-up of the funniest parenting tweets out there.
Though some parents have chosen to be more personal with their parenting blunders, seeing the realness of parenting — the good and the bad — gives current parents a reason to breathe easy and gives new parents a sigh of relief. So whether your little ones have gotten into your make-up, stuffed the toilet with tissue and made it overflow, or told you about yourself more than you've planned for the week, you're still one of the G.O.A.T's when it comes to parenting, and don't you ever forget it.
Yes, kids can really be exhausting at times, but these 31 tweets prove that parents have found a way to laugh at their offsprings (and themselves) — just like a boss.
