Parents are funny — especially on Facebook! And we love them for it.

Because in the world of Facebook where pages overflow with posts by parents filled with #gratitude, #happiness, and #blessings for their beautiful, picture-perfect lives, it’s easy to think you’re the only one who wants to tear their hair out …3 days into summer vacation.

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!
