Can't stand making buttered pasta for the 1,472nd time? Exhausted from seven years of middle-of-the-night wakeups? Out of clever responses for in-laws who love to dig for info about adding a "new addition" to the family?

Parents, sometimes you just need a laugh.

These are some of our favorite parent humor accounts from 2023. So grab your phone, hide from your family and enjoy.

This is why moms buy their own presents.

Mom, how dare you spend 15 seconds doing anything other than paying full attention to your child?

The sweet smell of a summer of neglect.

These moments are the real Sunday scaries...

No rest for the weary!

I can't reinvent the wheel, kid. (Which is a thing a not-cool person would say.)

By Memorial Day, all parents have given up. Let's just hope there's something edible in there.

Screentime sounds really good about now.

If you know, you know.

Imagine how much work it would take to actually excel.

A parent can dream, right?

...or maybe just get some stronger locks.

Cleaning the house is a losing battle.
