Office Weekly Roundup: Funny Parents on Twitter
It’s hard finding someone who wasn’t born within the last 30 years that has never used Twitter. In this day and age, everyone tweets: your favorite celebrities do it, and even your parents do it. But what happens when parents with Twitter accounts take off the parental controls and keep it real with their Twitter followers? For this week’s roundup, we look at some of the funniest Tweets by parents navigating the strange, exhaustive, funny, and loving world of parenting.
If your 3-yr-old child proclaims herself to be the sunniest bunny, better to just agree with her and move on. Preventing a temper tantrum is not unlike diffusing C4 explosives.
This is what user @amydillon’s 6-yr-old proclaimed to her 3-yr-old to convince him to go number 2 on the toilet. Kids say the darndest things, huh?
A word of advice to all parents-to-be: the only time you should feel safe with a home full of kids that you can neither see nor hear is when they’re asleep. Or not home.
Lack of planning on your kids’ part constitutes an emergency on your end, whether you like it or not. One day you will know what it’s like to sleep in, but today you have to rush to your nearest bank’s branch.
As much as parents don’t like the hassle of being tech-savvy, it’s not the worst thing in the world to try and learn how to work a smartphone. Your kids will tell you one thing while doing another when it comes to those things.
Stress is not good for the body, but a creative parent can find ways to get what they need from their kid and, if you’re lucky, you may even get what you want. No promises, however.
Always enjoy the little things in life. Kids can be a handful for even the most well-prepared parents. The days are long and restless, and there will be times when you will want to rip your hair out, but few things in life give someone purpose like raising children. Just saying.
