20 Tweets That Prove Parenting Is Entirely Delightful And Not At All Difficult. AGGGGGGH.
When parents let loose, they usually do it on Twitter.
Parents' tweets are as diverse as the changing mood of a toddler. They vary from the calamities of bath time to just trying to understand the intentions behind a child’s actions.
The funniest ones are the adults admitting to missing the mark, such as forgetting to go to the supermarket and even lying to get the kids to stop doing something.
This week’s tweets are chosen by Ask Your Dad blogger, John Kinnear.
Kinnear writes on the perils of fatherhood. He is based in Utah and has been ‘pretending to know the answer since 2010.’ Take a look at Kinnear’s favorite Twitter shares this week.
It is always comical to read how raising kids brings out the comedian in everyone. Just be glad your belling button was not licked like one lucky parent was this week.
