The life of a mom is incredibly unpredictable. One minute you're the "best mom ever" for buying your kids fruit roll-ups, and mere seconds later you're the "worst mom in the world" just because you won't allow your 6-year-old to leave the house without wearing pants. When you spend an entire afternoon scrubbing the spaghetti stains out of your living room rug, you might begin to forget why you even wanted to have kids in the first place. The good news though, is that out of a parent's deepest struggles comes some pretty downright priceless stories, as proven through some of the most honest parenting tweets.
The highs of parenting are very, very high — like when you're able to get through an entire day without any tantrums — and the lows are so low. The days are long, and the nights are even longer, considering it can sometimes take over an hour to convince your kid to finally get some sleep. The life of a parent is truly exhausting, and if anybody else gets it, hilarious Twitter parents do. Sure, the job is tough, and your laundry pile might be taller than you are, but in the end, it really will all have been worth it.

I couldn't agree more.

You ask a kid to brush your hair and suddenly you ruined your kid's life.

Can we please, please make this happen?
Sounds like a pretty efficient system.

18Lost And Found
It'll be our little secret.
19Life Isn't Fair
I haven't seen the floor in three years. It's completely covered in broken toys.
20Best Mom Ever?
My prayers have been answered.
22Star In The Making
Who's the real winner here?
You should be very, very proud.
Kids are like Rubik's Cubes — frustrating, tiring, and nearly impossible to figure out.
25Sounds Like Fun?
Every. Single. Day.
I'm still looking.
If it's small enough to fit in your mouth, a toddler will eat it. Even if it's plastic.
28Please, Please Go To Sleep
If you are able to put your kid to bed in less than 10 minutes, you deserve some sort of medal.
29An Absolute Blast
Kids: you can't live with them, but you can't live without them.
I'd be concerned, too.
