As a dad, there’s nothing better than hearing from other people who can empathize about or articulate some truth from the wild world of parenting. It helps you understand that fatherhood is a shared pursuit and, well, that crazy stuff happens to every parent. There’s no better display of this than on Twitter, where parents regularly share the funny, silly, frustrating, and truthful events that happen in their lives. To that end, here are ten of the best dad tweets from this week.

Lost in Space
There is a space you can't reach between the side of your refrigerator and your cupboards where there are Cheetos and Cherios and that is where your hopes and dreams went to die when you became a parent.

“This Is Bullshit.”
My daughter knows the word bullshit but uses it in great context:
"This Star Wars Valentine's Day card says it's for boys & this sparkly card for girls. But both can like either. This is bullshit."

My Compliments to the Chef
"I am not your personal chef!" I told my kids as they sent their breakfasts back
