What did parents even do before Twitter was around for them to commiserate about messy hair, messy cars, and messy rooms? (In case you weren't already aware, parenthood is filled with a lot of messes.) Luckily for the parent of today — and for us! — Twitter exists and is the perfect place to document all the fails, successes, and everyday hilarity that comes along with having offspring. Here are 20 of our favorite tweets all about the miracle that is bringing new life into the world (and then promptly second-guessing that decision approximately four times a day).
1. Kids are great, but food is also great. You shouldn't have to choose between the two.
All parents have a secret snack stash.
It’s just a fact of life.
2. Say goodbye to quiet drives forever.
We hope you also enjoy cleaning out melted crayons from all of your cupholders! You may not even own crayons, but somehow they just appear out of nowhere as soon as you have children.
3. This is the real Neverending story:
Remember when bedtime used to mean you’d finally get some rest?
Yeah, that’s totally out now. Consider yourself lucky if you manage to make it through the night without at least one kid climbing into your bed.
4. This is a brilliant idea!
Can this Robin Hood-like person also sign all the permission slips, do the dishes, and provide coffee on demand?
‘Cause if so, we’re 100 percent on-board.
5. Sometimes, you just need a place to escape to.
No matter how many times a day your kids make you smile, don’t pretend that you wouldn’t gladly escape to the land of missing socks and lost TV remotes for a solid 30 minutes if you got the chance.
