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 family getaways, Ivy-League bound children, and DIY birthday parties 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 ROTFGTMWTBS — Roll On The Floor Giggling To Myself While The Baby Sleeps) to the hilarious moms and dads who aren’t afraid to tell it like it is.
