“The perfect book for parents who want — NEED — to laugh, but don’t have time to sit down and read a daunting book. Grab it, head to the bathroom and lock the door until they find you!” — Jill Smokler, author ofConfessions of a Scary Mommy
“The Big Book of Parenting Tweets dishes up bite-size nuggets of funny. Impossible to read just one.” — Jen Mann, author ofPeople I Want to Punch in the Throat: Competitive Crafters, Drop-Off Despots, and Other Suburban Scourges
This book is HILARIOUS. Being a parent is a frustrating, hilarious, weird, wild experience. This book captures some of the best of our snark. You need it. You do. — Nikki Knepper, author ofMoms Who Drink and Swear
“A terrific read, featuring some of the funniest (and most honest) parents in the Twitterverse… my go-to gift for new parents!” — Johanna Stein, author of How Not To Calm A Child On A Plane and Other Parenting Advice from a Questionable Source
Twitter isn’t just for breaking news and celebrity stalking—it’s also a goldmine of the funniest comedy online. Jokes? People tell jokes on Twitter? YES, they do. And they are hilarious … but who wants to sift through the hashtags, RTs and FFs to get to the good stuff?
WE GET IT! Parents don’t have time for all that. That’s why the duo behind the illustrated humor blog Science of Parenthood teamed up with Twitter maven Kate Hall of Hall of Tweets to create The Big Book of Parenting Tweets —a laugh-riot collection of more than three-hundred tweetable moments straight from the parenting trenches from the most hysterical comedians on Twitter, who just happen to be parents.
Here is just a peek at some of what you’ll find inside:
My 4yo is trying to sell my own M&M’s back to me. This guy’s going places.— @FatherWithTwins
With my wife away, my children keep asking me for things like meals and bandaids and sympathy, but I don’t know where we keep any of that.— @KalvinMacleod
She took 4 y/o to the park & texted “Can I get her ice-cream?” Get her a Heineken for all I care. Free babysitters get to call the shots.— @BunmiLaditan
I wish bottles of ibuprofen came with a little prize inside, like maybe a babysitter.— @SuburbanSnaps
To anyone out there thinking about having kids, today my 2yo threw a temper tantrum because she couldn’t get rid of her shadow. — @XplodingUnicorn
Peppered with cartoons by Science of Parenthood, The Big Book of Parenting Tweets is the perfect gift for every over-worked, under-showered, sleep-deprived parent who could use a quick laugh, because who has time for more?
