As a dad, there’s nothing better than hearing other people articulate some truth from the wild world of parenting. It helps remind us 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.
You Shredder Believe It
5-year-old: Do I have to change my name if I get married?
Me: Only if you want to.
5: Call me Shredder.

Too Blessed To Be Messed
Have kids so instead of being productive you can clean up mess, after mess, after mess, until you die.

It’s Gotta Be The Shoes
Never, ever give up on your child! (Unless you are waiting for them to tie their shoes. Go ahead and give up.)

People Helping People
Some think kids are selfish, but when 8 sees I’m carrying too much stuff at once, he comes over and gives me a lengthy explanation as to why Black Panther could beat Spider-Man.

Throw In The Towel
Don’t know what’s worse
1) My 8yo called me upstairs to bring him a towel that was two feet away from him
2) I did it

Let It Snow!
My 7yo’s so excited there might be a snow day that he went to bed early.
I’m so excited he went to bed early that I didn’t tell him school’s already canceled.

Back In My Day
A Night At The Theather
I’m stuck saving 5 seats for a first grade play and you know what? I’m not enjoying this at all.
