35 Hilarious Tweets That Capture What Parenthood Is Really Like


Parents truly come in all shapes and sizes. Some might be Type A moms who refuse to purchase anything that isn't 100 percent organic, while others might not have seen the floor of your living room in weeks due to the mess of toys and dirty socks engulfing it. Despite how vastly parents can differ from one another, there are certain aspects of parenthood that all of us can certainly relate to — the tantrums, sticky fingers and lack of sleep — as made clear in this week's round-up of priceless parenting tweets.

It's easy to feel alone when you're a parent. Sometimes, it's just you and your thoughts — and your screaming toddler, of course — and you forget that there are other moms out there that are also drowning in laundry and empty juice box cartons. You're not the only parent who forgot to pick her kids up from daycare yesterday, or the sole mom who showed up to a PTA meeting with an applesauce stain on her blouse. Despite the wide array of parenting styles and "mom types" that exist, what you'll all always have in common with others is how much you love your kids. And that you wouldn't trade any of your exhausting, hilarious parenting moments for anything in the world.
