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.
My son asked if I’d take him to see Sherlock Gnomes and I told him, “Gnome thanks.” I’ve been waiting for a high-five for three days now.

How to spot a parent:
▪️They don't know what hot food or drink tastes like
▪️They can only tell you how long they slept in minutes, not hours
▪️They have a pair of tiny socks in their pocket for no real reason
▪️There's a wet wipe stuck to their back#parenting

Ready for Responsibility
My kids keep begging for a cat, but they have to prove they can keep the litter box clean first. It's been two weeks and man am I sick of pooping in the litter box.

On the way to school, my 4 year old was devastated we could not give him the giant truck that he saw that was shaped like a cookie.

The Worst Avenger
I was playing Avengers with my son and he said “I want to be Hawkeye” and I guess now I need a new son.

They Grow Up So Fast
Me (to daughter): I would LOVE for SOMEONE to come help put the laundry away.
Daughter: Well I'd LOVE a COOKIE, but we don't always get what we want DO WE?
