And oh my gosh, the funny is real. It is so real. Pee your pants a little real.
So settle in to meet 43 of the funniest parents on Twitter and get your pointer finger ready to click “follow” because you’re going to want more of this in your life.
Kids give the sickest of burns.

Getting away with my son for a couple nights. He’s looking around the hotel room and finds an ironing board. “Whoa, what’s that?” 🙈

Come at me, bro.
Doing some spring cleaning and told my 3 y/o that we are getting rid of things that we don’t use anymore. “Like these?” he says, pointing to my eight pound weights in the closet. pic.twitter.com/XIkAGeH4B1

Some sayings are misleading.
I didn’t realize I was supposed to know how to do everything by my second rodeo. That’s still a very low number of rodeos.

A plan I can get on board with.
WEIGHT LOSS TIP: Put your chips into a bowl instead of eating out of the bag. That way, you’ll get lots of exercise going back to the kitchen to fill up the bowl 10 times as you eat the entire bag.

I feel like there’s a good Guts reference here too.
In my youth, I hoped I’d be lucky enough to be slimed on Double Dare. Unfortunately, the closest I’ve come to achieving that dream is catching my child’s vomit in my bare hands.

I admire her courage.
Cashier was off-put that I would not supply my phone number and informed me that without it should I need to I would be unable to return the shampoo without a receipt. It was a chance I was willing to take.

This one time, my toddler woke up at 5:30 am on Saturday morning and I convinced her it was nighttime and she went back to sleep for another hour.
It was, like, 9 months ago but I still think of that moment fondly.

This is where I’ll be having my 35th birthday party.
I’m opening a bar where you have to be 35 or older to get in, the music plays at a reasonable volume, drinks are laced with Advil, no one has to stand, and the hip time to go is between 7-9:30.

I too enjoy Spirit Week. Particularly the days that require very little of me.
The kids brought home a slip saying that tomorrow is crazy mismatched sock day. Finally, a day that embraces my household management style.

Let me know what you find out. Please and thank you.

If you’re living that Twitter life, make sure these folks are on your list. If you think these are good, just wait. They are all bringing the funny on the regular.
With the original intention of making this a list of 25 but parents can’t help it if they’re funny,
