Look, you can have all the fame and fortune in the land. Kids still puke and spit up and poop in their diapers. No amount of money is going to save you from temper tantrums. Your kid will be able to destroy your house and draw on your walls no matter how big it is. Just because you are famous does not mean that parenting is any easier for you. Celebrities might have the luxury of more outside help, but they are still parents who are constantly perplexed and exhausted by their small children.
Luckily, Twitter exists, and many of these famous parents love sharing their parenting trials and tribulations, probably for the same reason everyone else does: to feel less alone. They may be celebrities, but they are just as burdened as any other parent. And they are ready to share their struggles, triumphs, and other hilarious parenting moments they experience.
Parenting is hard.Kids need a lot of direction. They don't know anything when they're born. You have to teach them the ways of the world. And in return, they'll make you sleep-deprived and miserable. At least temporarily.

Potty trainingPotty training is super tough, and it's not a straight trajectory... It's more like a roller coaster, with ups and downs and twists and turns.
