If you’re a doting mum or dad and you happen to have a Twitter account, we’re going to bet you tweet about your kids – and not just about the joyful things, but the crazy, sometimes bewildering things they say and do!
So if you’ve just had a little bundle of joy, here’s a little snippet of what to expect (and expect the unexpected) on all things parenting.
1. Please tell me you found it like that?
I think my 2yo just brought me half a caterpillar.

2. Because you’re worth it
Kids: Because having money, sanity, hair and personal space is overrated.

3. Probably just went for a coffee
HER: HAVE YOU SEEN THE BABY?!?
ME: If he loves you, he'll come back.

4. Dr. Google (or Yahoo)
the only thing worse than seeking medical advice on yahoo answers about your baby is probably being that baby

5. Solution: Fight with them!
One of many fallacies of parenting is believing that when they're teens they won't fight about things like who pushes the elevator button.

6. Does not compute
I'm "We just got a new computer, so I'm really looking forward to my kid showing me all the cool features" years old.

7. Wax on, Wax off
*at PTA meeting*
Sir you're no longer allowed to attend your nieces kickball games.
Me: Why not?
PTA: You kept yelling "Sweep the leg"

8. I see a bright future
6yo, despairingly: "Why are kids always supposed to have fun? I just want to read!"

9. He’ll find out when he’s 35
Currently helping my son search for his chocolate that I ate last night.

10. Confucius say…
Don't cry, lie or die.
*good talk kids*

11. Pure genius.
I construct complex pillow mazes for my daughter to nap in –
this way, she gets worn out and falls asleep as she's trying to crawl out

12. Hmmm… no.
[getting kids ready for school]
5: Daddy, can I have a screwdriver?
"A screwdriver?! For what?"
5: I just wanted to fix my own hair.

13. Don’t taste it to find out.
I can't tell if I have poop or peanut butter under my fingernails. Both are totally possible given my morning. #nannying

14. Parenting Calculus
80% of parenting is calculating percentages of what parents do.
