12+ Parenting Tweets That Prove You Need Humor To Make It Through Raising Children

You hear it all the time: becoming a parent is the biggest joy a person can experience. The moment you first look into your child’s eyes you’ll finally know what unconditional love feels like.

You know what else I imagine you’ll see when you first look into your child’s eyes? A very long and exhausting life looking after them (and damn it, loving every moment of it because you love those little suckers.)

Okay fine, I can’t really relate, with not being a parent myself, but I do have some experience with babysitting. And, honestly, every time I’ve had to babysit, I went home at the end of those few hours as an exhausted mess. Taking care of little children is hard! I can’t imagine what it feels like never getting a break.

I suppose you’ll have to develop a pretty strong sense of humor to deal with it. Like the people in the tweets below:
