Parents are funny — especially on Facebook! And we love them for it.
If it weren’t for their unbridled honesty, we’d sit around thinking we’re the only ones who haven’t purchased a single pumpkin, have already eaten all the bite-sized Snickers, and quickly cut holes in a brand new sheet while sitting in carpool lane so our kid would have a last-minute ghost costume for the class Halloween party.
So we’d like to take a moment to LOL along with 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.
