This week has been bonkers, no matter which candidate you support, so some feel-good stuff is probably necessary to reduce stress levels.
If that’s the case, I highly recommend reading about this dad who ran 26.2 miles around a hospital for his son or the story about the inmate who helped a struggling runner by helping her finish a marathon.
If neither of those stories helps to cheer you up, maybe you just need a couple of memes and one-liners from funny parents.
Here are some of the funniest parenting tweets and memes from parents this week.
I’ve actually lost weight. What the scale says is fraud. These pounds came in after I got in the scale. I had lost so much and these illegal pounds just got placed on there. Don’t believe the number on the scale.

My kids are running around the house yelling "sour cream" and "hide it!", and on the one hand I know they don't have any sour cream…
But on the other hand I'm going to go look around, because kids have taught me that I don't actually know a damn thing
