It's a humid July afternoon and you've just spent your entire day in a pee-infested public pool watching your kids belly-flop off the high dive. Why? Because you're a mom, of course. Now that your kids are out of school, your entire summer is dedicated to wiping melted popsicle stains off your kid's cheeks, and you officially have little to no time for yourself. Luckily, to get you through your summertime woes, we have another round-up of this week's funniest parenting tweets for you to sift through.

Your life (and your kids) might sometimes feel like a giant mess of sticky fingers and hour-long tantrums, but these funny Twitter parents totally understand your frustrations and know exactly what you're going through. Nothing tests a mom's patience quite like parenting a kid during the summer, when the weather is hot and the days seem to drag on endlessly. When afternoons spent at the pool feel just a little too long, or your laundry pile just doesn't seem to shrink no matter how how many pairs of mismatched socks you wash, it might make you feel better to remember that there is always a mom out there that is having a day just as difficult as you are.
