Each week, we collect the funniest parenting tweets for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own home – any messes these kids get themselves into aren’t yours to clean up.

It’s back to school for most kids, which means you may finally get a bit of a breather (unless you’re supervising zoom classes, which is a job in itself). No matter what form school is taking for your kids this year, things are going to be a bit different. We have had to adjust to a lot of new normals in the past few months, and school is no different – it may be tough at first, but it will become the new normal sooner than we think. No matter what this upcoming week brings, remember to take some time for yourself. Kick back and relax for a few minutes, and enjoy the 12 funniest tweets from parents this week.

You’re seriously killing it at this parenting thing,

Even when kids think they have the upper hand.

Like, really a lot –

But there’s a reason we’re doing all of this.

Things can get messy,

And sometimes you just need to lay down for a while –

But there are a million reasons to get right back up.

Being a dad changes you,

And you’re constantly learning even more.

And honestly,

We wouldn’t have it any other way.

A Month-By-Month Review of 2020 Told Through Celebrity Photos

2020 has been a lot to take. From pandemics to murder hornets, there has been no shortage of unwelcome excitement this year. We’re adjusting to a whole new reality, and a lot of us are having trouble sorting out how we’ve been feeling throughout this ordeal. Fortunately, Twitter has our back. Reminiscent of the classic “How are you feeling today?” charts that can be found hanging on the wall of any social worker’s office, Twitter users have been summarizing each month of 2020 using a single celebrity snapshot.

As we know, things haven’t exactly been getting better between one month and the next, so between January and September (apparently there are no predictions of a miraculous golden month in the midst of this mess), we see our favorite celebrities emote accordingly. Some of these charts were created and shared by Twitter users, while others were shared by the celebrities themselves.

Here are some of the most painfully relatable 2020 month-by-month reviews shared by celebrities.

Mindy Kaling looked ready for anything in January, and then…well, you know

Reese Witherspoon’s wide-eyed wonder turned quickly to dazed horror

Kerry Washington’s calm confidence faded into the abyss

Charlize Theron got Mad

Zooey Deschanel is quietly over it

Billy Ray Cyrus gave up around March 32nd

Mark Ruffalo made a surprisingly relatable transformation

And of course, The Hunger Games knows exactly how we feel.

We’ve collected 12 of the funniest parenting tweets this week for your viewing pleasure, so relax and enjoy.

There’s the finger-pointing,

And the excuses.

The mild horror,

The massive regrets.

But we’re all in the same boat,

Nobody said it was going to be easy.

Find what works for you,

Even if it takes a while.

There are going to be some bumps along the way,

But we do whatever it takes to get the job done.

Because no matter what,

Being a parent is a job like no other.

There is no rulebook for being a parent,

So there’s no shame in asking for help.

You’re going to hit your limit sometimes,

Or get very close.

Ok, VERY very close.

But there’s really no right way to do things,

And sometimes you just have to laugh.

Or pretend to, at least.

At this point, we’re pretty much experts at pretending.

We prepared as much as we could for this wild ride,

But no matter how much we tried,

Nothing could have prepared us for this.

We’re all doing our best,

Learning lessons along the way.

Remembering how far we’ve come,

And how far we may still have to go.

But by taking time to unwind,

Sometimes we find exactly what we’re looking for.

The NHL’s Newest Team Now Has a Name: Seattle Kraken

Seattle Kraken Logos

The NHL’s newest franchise has unveiled its name and logo, as the expansion team in Seattle has officially announced it will be the Seattle Kraken. The Kraken will be the 32nd team in the NHL and will play in the western conference (naturally). But what really got sports fans fired up on social media this week were the jerseys.

Say what you will about the name, the jerseys and logos are pretty awesome. Even sports fans that try to look down on hockey because it oddly makes them feel superior have conceded that the logo and jerseys are dope. The Kraken will be just the fourth team name in NHL history that doesn’t end in ‘s’ (joining the Avalanche, Lightning, and one other team I won’t name so you have to use google or go crazy).

“NHL Seattle” made the announcement during a live-stream Thursday, and had plenty of “Release the Kraken” merch ready to go. The jerseys are likely going to be a huge hit, especially the secondary logo, which masterfully incorporates the city’s space needle into the anchor.

For those who don’t know what a Kraken is, it’s…a sea monster, pretty much. They originated from Scandinavian folklore as a monster that terrorized sailors, but are probably more recognizable from recent pop culture, such as appearances in “Clash of the Titans” and “Pirates of the Caribbean”.

The Seattle Kraken will start play in the 2021-2022 season but their jerseys will likely become bestsellers long before that. One fan already has the first tattoo in team history.

We made it, folks. Another week in the books. What’d you do, finish building that deck that’s been sitting half-done for the past year and a half? Did you file your taxes? Did you even manage to put on pants? Even if you gave all of these a hard “no”, don’t worry about it. You still deserve a break. Grab some cheese puffs, a beer, and enjoy some of the funniest parenting tweets of the week.

Sometimes you hit,

Sometimes you miss.

You might be totally in your element,

Or figuring things out as you go.

You might win,

You might lose,

You might not even know what game you’re playing.

Sometimes we get lucky,

And kids really take an interest in us.

But when we run into trouble,

It might help to remember

That sometimes the answers are right in front of us.

Creepy Museum Collections

While museums are shuttered, many are continue to engage with the bored and curious masses by way of social media. Even a cowboy museum strengthened its Twitter presence in recent weeks.

But recently, an all-out melee of multilayered cultural histories broke out when the Yorkshire Museum in England challenged curators to share the weirdest, creepiest, most fucked up thing they have on display, using the hashtag #CURATORBATTLE.


In this corner, all the way from Scotland we’ve got a painted whale’s eardrum.

Next up, from the Egham Museum in England, it’s a terrifying broken doll head.

Then there’s this… uh… towel holder. Okay.

Uhh. Over here we have a plague mask right out of a Guillermo del Toro nightmare.

Then you got… action figures… made out of… crab claws? Huh?

Thanks but no thanks. Hard pass on whatever this is.

Oh no. Nope. Not in this lifetime, little man.
