    31 Brutally Hysterical Parents Whose Kids Inspired Some Seriously Funny Tweets

    "Kids are like hurricanes. You give them a name, they destroy your house, then they leave."

    There's no question about it — being a parent can be downright hilarious.

    So it's a good thing we have the hilariously honest parents on Twitter to keep it all the way real:

    My little girl is fiercely independent. She won't even hold hands on a walk because she "doesn't need help!" So when I felt her reach up and gently hold my hand as we walked into the first day of kindergarten I teared up. Then she dragged it across her slimy nose like a kleenex.

    My 6-year-old is sick with a cough, so I told him gargling with warm salt water can help. He looked at me & said, "I'm NOT going all the way to the ocean right now."

    My kids are fighting because my 11yo filled my 6yo's Minecraft house with cats. There's like 100 cats in the house and she can't get rid of them. As a parent I don't know how to handle this situation lol
