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!

Want to share your funniest parenting moments with TODAY? Just post them on our Facebook page at TODAY Parents, or tag us or “Sarah Maizes: Professional Writer. Amateur Mom” (our Parenting-Humorist-at-Large) in your comments. We’ll pick our favorites to feature in our next installment!
