14 hilarious parent tweets guaranteed to make you laugh

I once read a quote from a lady named Sue Atkins that has stuck with me ever since:

"There's no such thing as a perfect parent, so just be a real one."

And she's absolutely right! Despite your efforts your little ones are going to wear their spaghetti, lick their potty, hang upside down from your friend's upstairs landing, munch on soil from a plant pot, and generally do their best to drive you bananas!

But in the long run we all know it's worth it to see them develop and go from being tiny humans into amazing adults - even if you occasionally threaten to take them back to the shop where you bought them! Here's a selection of our favourite parent tweets that will remind you that you aren't going mad and it's not just you!

Granny Annie: What are you doing in the refrigerator?

2YO: I'm smelling the chocolate milk.



It was the best of times, it was the accidentally-pushed-the-elevator-button-before-offering-to-let-your-toddler-push-it of times.



My 4-year-old called ice cubes "water bricks," and now I'll never call them anything else.



A fun thing about being a parent is trying to downplay your sleep needs to yourself like ‘I slept in for 30 minutes 6 days ago; I should be fine right now.’



My son's awfully confident for someone who's thrice tried eating potpourri thinking it was a fancy snack



Whenever my kid's teacher asks how I'm doing, I always want to reply, "Why? What did my kid tell you?"



Before I had kids, I didn't even know it was possible to destroy an entire house with a granola bar.



My son was crying and asked, "why doesn't the dog have to wear pants?" And it's like, I don't even know. So now I'm putting pants on a dog.



80% of parenting is yelling through a closed bathroom door.



In case you're thinking about having a kid, my daughter just threw a tantrum because I wouldn't let her watch me poop.



Me: Good morning, son.

7yo: Daddy, what would happen if you got a puffer fish up your butt?

Me: *goes back to bed



Was arguing with my 2/yo for 30 minutes about why he needs to wear his pants and now we're both sitting in our underwear eating donuts.



My kid just flushed her socks down the toilet because "dirty stuff goes there." 

Sound logic, questionable execution.
