Did you spend your morning carpooling your bickering kids to school, and your afternoon fishing the maple syrup from today's breakfast disaster out of your hair? Good. Then you are just in time to scroll through this week's round-up of funniest parenting tweets.
Being a mom is no doubt the most difficult job out there. You almost never get recognition for all of the endless hours of laundry, cooking and cleaning you do, and often times your effort goes unnoticed or feels under-appreciated. For instance, no matter how many hours you slave in the kitchen cooking dinner, your 6-year-old will always seem to prefer macaroni and cheese. Luckily, there are millions of others out there who understand exactly how you're feeling: all of the hilarious parents on Twitter, who are more than happy to share a few of their hilarious — and sometimes horrifying — parenting experiences or stories.
It's probably been a long and strenuous week, but luckily with the weekend right around the corner you'll finally have some extra time to sit back, relax, and maybe even sleep in. Wait, just kidding. Moms never really get to sleep in -- at least not while you're raising a toddler.
