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

Why? Because in the world of Facebook, where page after page of friends and family brim with posts about extravagant mid-winter ski vacations, science-fair winning entries, and DIY valentines that would make Martha Stewart step away from her glue gun, it’s easy to think you’re the only one who doesn’t have their “BLEEP” together.

So we’d like to take a moment to give a shout out, an LOL (or a quiet ROTFGTMWTBN — Rolling On The Floor Giggling To Myself While The Baby Naps) to the hilarious moms and dads who aren’t afraid to tell it like it is.

Want to share your funniest parenting moments with TODAY? Just post them on our Facebook page at TODAY Parents, or tag “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.
