Parents say the funniest things — especially on Facebook. And we love them for it.
Why? Because when the pages of Facebook are filled with photos of elementary school science projects worthy of MIT admittance, over-the-top birthday parties, and smiling families on vacation in exotic locales, it’s easy to think you’re the only one who doesn’t have her stuff together.
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.
