Welcome to another edition of “parents just barely making it,” better known as, “the funniest tweets and memes of the week.”
Sometimes when I’m rounding up these tweets and memes I think to myself “Is every parent hilarious or do our frustrating kids make us funnier?”
Then I thought about the parents I know who aren’t funny at all. Their kids seem normal and well adjusted.
There’s a connection there that I’m too lazy to make.
Here are the funniest tweets, memes, jokes, and observations from parents this week.
If you know a funny parent I should check out on Twitter or Instagram, drop their name in the comments.
I’m not saying my life is hell but my kid did just tell Alexa to replay Cotton Eye Joe for the third time

I told my mum my wife's age and she thought my wife was younger than me. My own mother doesn't even know my age.

Today the librarian informed me I had a 20 year old fine for $2.25 that had to be paid or my kids couldn’t participate in my hometown’s summer reading program (just like I had as a kid.)
Nobody … I mean absolutely nobody holds a grudge like your local public library.

My husband insists on going on runs with me, then runs too fast for me to keep up with him, talks to me while I’m wearing earphones, and then announces he is done about halfway through, leaving me to run the rest of the way energy expended and nerves fried. Is this flirting?

I was in the mall and overheard a dad say to his little girl,
“You can have 2 now or 6 in the car.”
The kid thought for a minute and then said “Can I have 4 now?” and I’m pretty sure she’ll grow up to be a CFO.

Been through a divorce, pushed out 2 babies, horrible kidney stones & surgery, countless mammograms, a needle biopsy and titanium marker put in and more pelvic exams than I can count. But you know what gets me? The damn things they put in your mouth for X-rays at the dentist.

You sneeze once, I'm going to bless you. You sneeze twice, I'm going to bless you but sound annoyed. You sneeze again, I'm going to bless you but yell it at you. Every sneeze following is subject to a "WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU" til you either stop or I throw you out.

Bungee jumping? No thanks, when I want to live dangerously I'll pause for two seconds when my wife asks if her new shirt looks good.

my four year old telling me she’s hungry while she eats is watching my whole personality come to life

Whoever came up with the phrase “it’s better to regret something you did, rather than something you didn’t do” sure as shit never bought their 4 year old a whistle

Over the weekend I drove 45 minutes away so my son could ride his bike on a real BMX track. He made one pass down the least challenging set of hills, took off his helmet, and said, "well, that was easy. let's go home."
