Funnies for Parents

Being a parent is hard. Really hard. It’s full of amazing joy, incredible frustrating, highs and lows. But there is one thing that can make any day better- laughter. Laughter is known to reduce stress (what parent doesn’t have stress?), increase memory, alertness, and lower blood pressure. With the rise of social media and online sharing, it’s not hard to find something that you can laugh at when you need a pick me up. Here are some of my favorite things to get the giggles from:

1) Honest Toddler:  (also on Facebook). Life as a toddler sees it, if they had the eloquence of a sarcastic 30-something. An example post: “Just heard that the toddler next door has regressed from big kid underwear back into Pull-Ups. I love inspirational stories.”

2) LOL Cats. I’m not a huge fan of cats. They’re too…indifferent for my tastes. But I have laughed so hard at this site I’ve cried. For example:



Admittedly a little juvenile, but I can’t help but laugh every time.

3) Dog Shaming… another laugh ’til I cry kind of site.


Oh, my dogs have plenty of stories. One day I’ll get them back… But this site also now does “Adoption Fridays”, highlighting dogs in foster homes. Love it!

4) Have a conversation with my four year old. Kid is funnier than Bill Cosby. Me: “Thanks for your help holding the door so I could get the dogs in.” Him:  ”I’m a cool kid!” That you are, my boy.

5) Troll pinterest for humor (not all kid-friendly):




So what makes you laugh ’til you cry?
