Look, I am not a parent. And because I don't have children, I cannot tell you what it is like having a kid. My dog is hard enough to raise and I know that that doesn't even compare to having kids. I can however, tell you what having a kid looks like from someone who doesn't have one of their own.
It looks really hard. Like really, really hard. Miserable at times. It also looks super cute and cuddly. It looks fun but also horrible. It looks smelly and poopy and full of snot and tears. It looks hilarious and heartwarming and emotional and beautiful and hard. Did I mention that parenting looks hard?
So, on that note, here are some of the most hilarious parenting tweets from 2017 that will make you LOL.
Kids say the darndest things. They have absolutely no filter and they usually have way cooler things to say than boring adults do. Adults are so lame, aren't they?! Kids want to talk about bugs, toys and monsters. When they speak, they are excited about things and they aren't jaded yet. Ah yes, remember those days? When we didn't hate ourselves or our jobs or our lives and we were actually excited about every little thing that came our way? Take me back!
Wow, at only 6 years old this child already knows that school sucks. What a gift, but a also curse at the same time. I hate to break it to you, sweet child, but you are only at the beginning. You have so much school left, you haven't even made a dent in your future school days. You have kindergarten, elementary school, middle school and high school and then college if you decide to go on! It's best to try to grin and bear it. If you don't, you are in for it!
This one seriously blows my mind! If the Harry Potter books and movies were accurate, with those magical powers Harry Potter could have had everything he ever dreamed of. We really could do without the entire franchise. He could have just improved his entire life with one little spell. Mind blown.
I feel like this such a kid thing. You can buy them everything that they have ever thrown a tantrum over and then they play with the box that the toy came in instead. That box is way cooler than the actual toy.
Look, kids are cute but they can be real jerk faces. They may look cute but they are little demons. They throw tantrums, they bite and they scream and cry and it isn't pretty. Sure, you can call it whatever you want, but they are still little jerk faces.
Ah! This is great. Our parents have so much on us, I can't believe that we would dare to ever talk back or raise our voices to them. They could destroy us forever if they wanted to. Parents. They know way too much.
Sure you think that you will be ready to get the kids out of the house, but you will miss them. They have been up your butt since the day they were born, of course you are going to miss them. Go ahead and pretend that you won't, but you will.
This kid has a point. But you know what, little guy? You wouldn't even be born if it wasn't for your momma. So go ahead and talk back to her, but just remember this: She made you and she can destroy you.
I am sure that once you have a kid, you really understand why people drink too much. Kids are exhausting, aren't they? Thank God for TVs and iPads. Seriously! What would you do without them. Parent, I guess.
Kids have tantrums over the craziest things. And you never know when they are coming. It's like, all of a sudden...WHAM! Or should I say, WHHHHHAAAAAAA! And then you are the jerk with the jerk child ruining everyone's day. It's rough.
I love that parents see Hide and Seek as a nice time to take a break. Mom or dad can find the perfect spot to hide, bring their work with them and hide and hide and hide and no one will ever find them. It's brilliant.
I guess you never really know what kind of shape you are in until you have child and have to run after them. This could be a great workout idea. Run after your kid with the Sharpie in his or her hand in a room full of white furniture for 30 minutes and there you go! So fit!
