The Funniest Parenting Tweets This Week: January 4-8

Besides waking you up at 5 a.m. on a Saturday for no reason or using your shoulder as a de facto tissue, children—our own children, at least—help keep us humble, if not downright subservient. (Other people's children? Well, that's a different story altogether.)

Commiserating with other parents definitely takes some of the sting out of watching as your son uses your new couch as a launching pad. Hey, we've all been there. That's why we're looking to Twitter for a dose of mom and dad humor. Because if we can't laugh at ourselves, we just end up laughing at our kids. (And sometimes that makes them sad.)

Here are some of the funniest parenting tweets this week:

1. First things first, kid!

2. He'll never do that again.

3. And 20 percent is ...?

4. Wreck-it record

5. Say 'Cheese'!

6. You've been baby punk'd.

7. Tinker Bell just went home and cried.

8. Can't win for losing.

9. Not the gummy bears!

10. Um, what am I doing?
