Ask any parent and they will tell you that life with children is more than raising a family, it’s an adventure in the absurd. In fact, many families have a difficulty wrapping their heads around everything that may take place on a daily basis as far as the children are concerned. Just when you think that you’ve seen everything, something else will come up and before you know it, you have an epic saga on your hand that really defines life for most parents on a day by day basis.
When you get married and have children, you expect to give up a few things in life. Perhaps you give up an apartment that you may have lived in for quite some time and you certainly are giving up a little bit of your privacy in order to enjoy matrimony. Having children also causes you to give up some things, such as time and additional privacy. As you are about to see, however, there is one thing that parents don’t give up when they have children, and that is a sense of humor. If anything, it even gets better.
You really are at a crossroads when you are a parent and you experience something difficult during the day. It is during those times that you have to make a choice. You can either choose to get frustrated with the situation and to fret over your lot in life or you can laugh about the situation and make the best of it. That is what these parents decided to do but fortunately, they didn’t keep it all to themselves. They went online and decided to share their frustrations on Twitter and we couldn’t be happier that they did so!
What was the funniest thing that your child ever did? You may have a difficult time putting your finger on it and when you’re in the middle of these types of situations, it may not quite seem as funny as what it actually could be. Not taking things too seriously is an important part of being a parent and it can certainly go a long way in helping you to get through the day without completely losing it in the process.
Being a parent and laughing at the situation is sometimes a matter of not being able to see the forest for the trees. Sometimes, you’re just too close to the situation to truly “get it.” When you look back on things as you get older, however, you will come to realize that these days were not the frustrating days that you imagined, they were some of the best days of your life!
