Being funny on Twitter is NOT, in fact, a waste of time.
The Bigger Book of Parenting Tweets is available now!
And I’m in it!
When I got my hands on The Big Book of Parenting Tweets last year, I made it my mission to get into any follow-ups to it. And I did. WOO HOO!
Not familiar with the series yet? It’s the best of the funny parenting tweets, some of which are illustrated to make you laugh even harder at the insanity that is parenthood. This is a great gift for any parent or parent-to-be, ready to gift just in time for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
Here’s the complete list of all the funny men and women in this book along side me:

My wife doesn’t think I’m funny. My three kids think I’m hilarious. Odds are, my wife is right.

Does “mad” apply more to people working in advertising or staying home with their kids? This donut-loving, patience-lacking mom of two boys is finding out.
