Parents are funny — especially on Facebook! And we love them for it.
Because when the pages of Facebook overflow with pictures of Instagram-worthy lobster bakes, shopping carts brimming with back-to-school supplies, and proud parents packing their hopeful youth off to the Ivy Leagues, it’s easy to think you’re the only one who doesn’t have their BLEEP together!
So we’d like to take a moment to give a shout out, high-five or simple LOL 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.
