Parents say the funniest things — especially on Facebook. And we love them for it.

Why? Because in Facebook’s world of extravagant vacations, DIY overload, and smiling teens (it’s true…they exist!) it’s easy to think you’re the only one who’s slowly (okay, quickly) being driven insane.

So we’d like to take a moment to send a shout-out, LOL or even a LQWTBN (Laughing Quietly While The Baby Naps) 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!

Want to share your funniest parenting moments with TODAY? Just post them on our Facebook page at TODAY Parents, or tag Sarah Maizes in your comments. We'll pick our favorites to feature in our next installment.
