Check out these funny parenting tweets and try not to laugh too hard!
1. A grownup name.
Whatever you say, kid?
5yo; “Mommy, I think when I grow up, I might change my name to a grownup name because my name is a little kid’s name. Maybe I’ll use my middle name. My name is such a baby name! I want a grown up name when I’m a grown up.”
Reader, his name is HARVEY.

2. I have nothing to say.
This kid is COLD.
many years ago, I had a meeting with my God son's teacher, she was worried about his speech development bc according to her " he NEVER speaks", I asked him – " Gabo, what's going on?" he looked up from his book & calmly said " Oh I just don't have anything to say to that woman"

3. You nailed it.
12yo: I’ve been thinking about something. So, Wario and Waluigi are the opposite of Mario and Luigi in every way. Therefore since Mario and Luigi’s jobs are to unclog toilets, Wario and Waluigi’s jobs must be to clog toilets

4. What’s the point?
Seems like a lot of wasted time.
So glad I helped 3 kids make 75 valentines for everyone’s trash cans.

5. Never mind…
That was a close one.
6yo: Momma, close your eyes! I have a surprise!
Me: OK, but I don't want a naked butt in my face when I open them.

6. Good for you!
Well, wait a second…
Moms on Facebook be like, “I am so proud of my son. He worked hard and graduated with honors” and it’s just a picture of their child graduating 3 year old preschool.

8. There will be no next time.
I let my 17yo have a small(ish) party while I was out of town. His friends are a good group and wasn’t worried about any crazy behavior. We talked about how it went. And I said “next time..” he cut me off-“I don’t think there will be a next time. It took me like 3 hours to clean”

9. What happened here?
Anyone care to explain?
I heard a strange sound on the baby monitor so I went to check
the dog is on the chair looking guilty and the baby has dog hair in his mouth

10. Sorry about that.
But it was totally worth it.
Sorry kids I missed your childhood I was trying to figure out which app to use to seek validation from strangers

11. What a masterpiece.
Some real talent here.
At a school art fair and spent a while marveling at the depth of this 6th grader’s piece titled “feel the feeling” before I realized the painting had just slipped out of the cardboard frame and was on the floor below it pic.twitter.com/rbH00tNojK

12. Nailed it!
She’s got it figured out!
Today the 8 year old told me she deliberately spelled a word wrong in the last round of the school spelling bee because “if you lose you get a piece of candy, but if you win you just get a boring medal”

13. Get on the truck.
I wish this was true.
We reminded our kindergartner he’ll be at a different school next year, and he said “How will I get there? On the bus?” We said we weren’t sure yet. He nodded knowingly. “Probably by dump truck.”

14. Let’s change it up.
most often it's cute when kids have alternative names for things. however my 8 yo calling taco bell's cinnabon delights "creamy balls" confirms that we are out of the cute-renaming-of-things stage.

15. Got a weird one here.
Have you ever seen The Birds?
Legit call from the school:
Principal: I just wanted to touch base with you. Your daughter was baiting seagulls into the playground with gummy worms and actually caught one; Like in her arms. It did bite her—not hard, but I needed to inform you that we filed an incident report

16. Uh oh…
Don’t listen to her!
The baby's favorite food is strawberries and she calls them, "the babies." We got looks in the store when she asked loudly to eat the babies

17. Don’t say that!
Back to the drawing board.
me: It’s important to tell your parents everything.
my 8yo: when mommy woke up this morning she looked 100 years old.
me: whatever you do don’t tell her that.

18. Hitchin’ a ride.
Who was that…?
This little boy got in my car with the kids and I assumed it was one of their friends. I asked his name and introduced myself. He gets out of the car and my kids say “I don’t know that boy. I guess he just wanted a ride”. 💀💀💀

This is great.
drama in the school whatsapp chat! the PTA invited us all to a coronation party and one of the dads (who's a professor of colonial history) said eat my dick

20. You want him?
At the airport I told a woman her toddler son was cute and she looked at me with profound exhaustion and offered me full custody.

21. See ya later.
That’s a new one.
When my 2yo doesn’t want to talk anymore, she ends the conversation with “happy birthday” and walks away waving bye.
— Princess (@themultiplemom) May 8, 2023
22. You are now a liar.
Don’t feel bad about it.
In my 20s: I would never lie to my kids. They will be strong enough to see the world as it is.
In my 30s: That's called Paw Patrol. They only have it at the barber. You can watch it again the next time you get a haircut.

23. This is real life.
Took my 11 y/o out to spend some of her babysitting money and she sighed, “I thought ice cream would taste different with my own money. It tastes the same.” Welcome to the working world, kid.
