9 tweets about parenting which are way too relatable for mums and dads
There are a lot of things to learn when you become a parent.
From nursing to getting them to sleep, it’s all one big learning curve. And, really, it doesn't get much easier as they get older - it just becomes a different sort of learning curve.

Here are some of our favourites from the last few weeks.

I think I've figured out this whole meal planning thing with kids:
Monday - won't eat it
Tuesday - don't like it
Wednesday - ewww gross
Thursday - that AGAIN
Friday - it smells weird

Me: Don’t do that.
Kids: We won’t.
Me: Please. It’s important you don’t.
Kids: We said we wouldn’t.
Me: Again, I can’t stress how important it is not to do that.
Kids: WE WONT!!!!!
Narrator: They immediately did that.
