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 dads 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 the past week.
What’s In a Name?

The Walking Dad
If you don't look like you just survived a zombie apocalypse on a daily basis, are you even the parent to a newborn?

‘Tis the Season
I’m starting to suspect the Christmas tradition of the kids cleaning the house for Santa while the parents nap is just something my parents made up.

I’m No SuperDad
Today I convinced my daughter, who hates walking, to walk on her own by telling her Superman loves to walk and then singing the theme sing while she walked down the street with her arms out.
It was freaking awesome.

Not sure if my wife is killing a demogorgon from Stranger Things in the bathroom or just washing our son's hair.
