Most parents would probably agree that being a parent is the greatest gift they've ever been given. Guiding your children through life as they discover who they are is a beautiful, magical thing. But as wonderful as being a parent is, it also can suck. Because kids can sometimes be the worst.
That's why Twitter exists — so other moms and dads just like you can help you realize that some of the situations you find yourself in as a parent are so ridiculous, they're hilarious. And you're definitely not alone in all the craziness.
