75 Of The Funniest Posts From "The Dad" - Where Parents Of The Internet Hilariously Collide

by Kylin

There’s nothing as uniquely life-changing as becoming a parent. You’re suddenly entrusted with the huge responsibility of caring and raising a whole-ass human being. 

Doctors literally just hand you a baby fresh from your partner’s (or your own) womb and send you along your merry way. You’re responsible for your child’s development, meaning being engaged, warm and loving.

That also means playing with them, reading to them, feeding (and teaching) them about nutritious foods. And as they get older, more things come into play, like playdates, what sort of schooling are you going to do, extracurricular activities? 

It’s a LOT, and while you’re in it, it feels like it’s never-ending. Each stage of growth is challenging in different ways.

But all of it can be so, SO rewarding. There aren’t the proper words to express how incredible it is to watch and guide your kid as they grow into a self-sufficient person.

A person who has been shaped by your love, attention, family morals, and hopefully, Dad Jokes. Because why put in all that serious effort without taking a few breaks here and there for a laugh?

In the spirit of all things parental and humor, we’ve collected tweets and memes from an online project called The Dad. This is dedicated to sharing the parenthood experience, with a heavy focus on humor, because parents in the trenches NEED IT.

We’ve collected 75 of the best tweets they’ve shared in order to share with you in one handy space. Get your coffee out of the microwave and put on a show for the kids while you take some time for you to enjoy these relatable parenting tweets.
