Parents are funny — especially on Facebook! And we love them for it.
Because when the pages of Facebook overflow with pictures of picture-perfect summer BBQs, happy campers, and over-the-top family trips to Bali, it’s easy to believe you’re the only one who’s slowly going insane.
So we’d like to take a moment to give a shout out 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!
