Parents are funny — especially on Facebook! And we love them for it.
Why? Because summer was long. Summer was hot. (Exactly how much Pokemon Go can we encourage them to play?) So when Facebook overflows with posts from weepy first-time parents packing their perfectly dressed kindergartners off to school, we can’t help but wonder if we’re the only ones dancing in the driveway as school bus pulls away.
So let’s take a moment to give a shout-out, LOL, or just a virtual high-five, to the hilarious moms and dads who aren’t afraid to tell it like it really is. Here are our picks for this week’s Funniest Parents on Facebook.
