Do you find yourself on the verge of tears every time you clean the house only to find it is littered all over again?
Parenting is a tough job, undeniably. You might find celebrities or even your friends saying how beautiful of a feeling it is to be a parent. The reality, however, is far from the truth. To be a parent takes nerves of steel. For the most part, you are either running on low sleep or surviving on that last cup of coffee. Parents don't like to admit it, but not every day is filled with familial delights. And, if someone tells you otherwise, they are lying. The everyday grinding to ensure that your child grows up to be a good human being takes a lot of effort. As mundane and dull as it sounds, you don't have to be serious all the time. Squeezing out a good laugh now and then will only be beneficial, not harmful.
Do you ever feel energetic and alive when you finally get the house all to yourselves? Do you find yourself on the verge of tears every time you clean the house only to find it is littered all over again? Do you feel like you have achieved the unachievable after you managed to put your kids to bed? If you have silently nodded a 'yes' to all the questions above, then here is a list of tweets that will act as a soothing ointment to treat your battle scars from parenting. Moreover, it will make you understand that you are only a human, just like your kids. You cannot always have control over everything and it is okay. All you need to know is that you are trying to do your best.
