Parents are funny — especially on Facebook! And we love them for it.
What a year we’ve experienced, so much anger, fear, resentment, fists and tears … and that was just in the carpool lane. For sure, 2016 has been a roller-coaster filled with ups and downs, but there’s one thing we can all agree we enjoyed this past year — a few good laughs.
So we’d like to take a moment to acknowledge some of our favorite hilarious moms and dads who said some of the funniest things we heard all year and put a much needed smile on our faces.
And to all of you who have shared your posts and made us feel like maybe we’re not the only ones who don’t have our sh** together, thanks for making us LOL, ROTFL, and accidentally spit pinot noir on the dog.
