Are you looking for a reminder that all parents are on the verge of total insanity? Would you like reassurance that we are all hanging on by a thread here? There’s just something about the Twitter moms and dads that make me feel normal.
Let’s check out what they had to share with us this week.
Rough day? Drained of energy? Terrified that you are a parenting failure? Raising kids is not for the faint of heart. The great thing about the parenting community on Twitter is that we can all laugh together about the things that are challenging!

"Oh yeah. Sorry. We were just… sleep talking"#parentingfail
Well, at least they had a clever response…
It is 6 am and my 18 month old is melting down because I gave him tap H20 instead of LaCroix. That is the most dbag sentence I've ever said. Parenting mistakes have clearly been made. #ParentingWin #toddlerlife #momlife #Parentingfail— Kendyl (@theformermsr) February 13, 2019
Remember: if you don’t teach your kids not to be D-bags, no one will.
Parenting tip: Never tell the kids that something is impossible to get dirty.

No one’s life is as good as it looks on social media. Just remember that.
