Parents born with funny bones are truly a gift from the skies. They supply humor on tap 24/7 and don’t even ask you to pay cover for the comedy show. These birth-givers are true riots and they’re here to brighten your day and make you feel like you should give your own parents a phone call.
Whether it’s the parents intentionally parking the VW in the living room or accidentally making 100 pancakes, it’s never a dull moment in these families. We’ll be here on the sidelines laughing and eagerly waiting for it all to hit the fan.
The Dad Who Found The Perfect Parking Spot
The funniest parents are the ones who don’t let silly things like rules or other people’s opinions hold them back from living their wild lives, which is exactly what this dad is. We’re just curious how his wife reacted to the car’s new indoor “parking spot.”
The Son That Is Clearly His Father’s Child And Drunk Alter Ego
When this Redditor texted his brother a picture of his nine-month-old son, the last thing he expected was a photo of him from Oktoberfest 15 years prior. But that’s what he got… and a healthy lesson about genetics.
The Only Kids’ Restaurant Menu Parents Know Off By Heart
This restaurant owner is clearly a parent who’s had just about enough of the half-mumbled noncommittal answers their kids offered about what they wanted for dinner. So they created this highly relatable menu that finally has what picky eaters want.
He Wanted To Go Hiking But The Universe Wanted Him Stylish
Imagine you’re a dad on the go about to take a weekend camping trip with the boys, so you order some spiffy new hiking shoes on the internet, and what appears to be a $500 Gucci scarf. Are you happy? This dad looks positively thrilled.
The Grandma Who Didn’t Trust That The Grandpa Knew His Left From Right
As we age we have to look out for our partners. That means helping them choose foods that are healthy, getting them out socializing, and reminding them which way is left and which way is right. That’s exactly what this doubtful grandma did for her husband when she ordered him some new slippers.
He Used Mommy’s Mug And Had No Idea What It Meant
When your kid asks you if they can drink out of your mug like a “big boy” we’re all too happy to oblige. Just make sure you give them the one that doesn’t have the “size matters” joke on it.
The Dad Who Needs To Keep His Mortal Kombat Knowledge Packed Away
As parents, we all struggle to drag ourselves to our child’s sporting events and still have it be interesting for us. Let’s face it, two four-year-olds weakly running into each other isn’t good entertainment, but screaming MMA moves at them certainly is a good way to spice the evening up.
The Supportive Parent Who Smiled Despite Being Absolutely Terrified
We’d all like our children to be bold and creative individuals, but we definitely don’t want them being into absolutely anything. Like this supportive mom, who is trying her best to not flinch at her daughter’s obsession with everything scary.
The Soccer Mom Who Kept It Real
This vanity plate is way too relatable and I want six of them. I want one for my work desk, one for my headboard, one for my back, and just any place that I can tape them to my body. This mom is doing the most and we couldn’t agree with her more.
Ah Yes, The Three Major Food Groups: Potato, Granola, Water
When your four-year-old serves you breakfast in bed we’ve all smiled happily, tried to eat whatever they put in front of us, and then immediately went downstairs and funneled oatmeal into our systems. At least this kid probably didn’t mess up the kitchen looking for a potato. Probably.
A Sign Of Maturity Is Admitting Defeat
There comes a point where you’ve just got to accept that your child is going to be weird and just move on from there. Maybe it’s the introduction to their imaginary friend or maybe it’s their refusal to look at the color yellow. We’ve all got to close our eyes at some point and choose our battles wisely.
The Considerate Mom Who Knew The Dog Needed A Smoke Break
Dogs are called “man’s best friend” for a reason—they want to do anything and everything with us. This considerate mom thought that her dog was getting jealous of the humans and their cigarettes, so she crocheted him a cigar. What a suave pup.
The Dad Who Put In Some Serious Lawn Work
There is no more iconic combination than a dad and his lawn. The front yard is the dad’s domain, so it’s no wonder when this Redditor’s father dropped off his lawnmower after fixing it that he left his mark on the sacred ground.
This Mom Who Let Every Food Thief In Her Office Know About How Done She Was
Whether it’s the fridge at home or the one at work, it’s up to moms to lay down the law about acceptable food storage behavior because nobody else seems to have a clue. This mom took a hard stance about the vultures in her office.

Parenting is just one long game of hide n seek. The kids are hiding from you when it’s time for dinner, you’re hiding for five minutes in the bathroom when you can, and your husband is hiding from you.
The Confused Laundry Mom
This photo was taken the moment before this mom realized why the clothes she hung up outside were wet, and honestly, it’s a whole mood. She’s literally me trying and failing at any household chore.

This Redditor really demonstrated to us the love his parents feel in their hearts for all their children equally. That’s why they hung up every child’s photo, duh. They even ordered more than one wallet print for two of them so grandma can have one too.
The Tactically Nefarious Birthday Gift
When you’re not a fan of another parent whose kid yours loves, you’ve got to play the nice and friendly schmoozer and just hope they grow distant throughout the years. A few bad presents at the birthday parties never hurt.
The Dad Who Slipped On The New Balance The Minute The Baby Was Born
Okay, he didn’t slip them on the minute the baby was born, but he did have them at the hospital. This excited new dad was ready to jump right into his new role so he prepped by bringing the “dad” uniform to the maternity ward.
The Mom Who Just Learned The Covert Photo Bomb
We love a wholesome mom just being her cute supportive self. When these two got engaged she decided now was the time to try out that new “photobomb” trend she heard the kids were trying out these days. We love this queen.
The Ice, Ice Baby That Followed In Her Mom’s Footsteps
When this mom danced onstage with Vanilla Ice she took this iconic photo and her daughter decided that she would carry on the torch. This is the family tradition that we heavily support.
The Leaning Tower Of Parenting
This mom saw all those cool vacation photos people have taken outside of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and thought nahhh. When it was her turn to take one of her husband she decided that she would take a different artistic route.
Just Filming, Just In Case
Nothing like video evidence of your spouse messing up to get you through the day. This mom is all of our glee when we get to make fun of the job our spouse is doing as she films him installing a light in the ceiling “just in case.”
The Mom Who Thought Long And Hard About A Good Use For That Mango Juice Box
We’ve all taken a look at those poppy citrus and fruit punch flavors on our child’s juice boxes and thought that they’d really put in some work as a drink mix. It’s just thriftier to buy a huge case of Hawaiian punch that the whole family can share than some separate mix for yourself.
The Accidental Pancake Hoarder
God, don’t you hate pancake amnesia? You know, when you make a couple stacks of pancakes and then immediately forget and make more until your freezer is bursting? Never happened to you? Well, meet the mom who struggles everyday with this hilarious blackout.
The Mom Who Knew Her Raptor Child Well

The Mom Who Needed A Helping Hand From A Good Psychiatrist
We’ve all wondered if what we’re doing right now constitutes as having a breakdown. It’s that feeling we get while we’re mowing the lawn in identical vertical stripes or making a bunch of concrete hands for art. This mom texted a photo of her latest concrete project to her kid and asked if she was “all right?” We’re not sure, but never change.
The Dad Who Was Feeling Himself So He Sent A Pic
This dad apparently never texts his son, but he did today and we’re glad because this man looks downright regal here. He looks like King Henry XII posing with one of his dogs ready to go out for a little hunt for some good Sunday couch snacks.
They Birthed An Absolute Unit
Kids will always copy what you’re doing. If you’re a fitness fanatic like this planking mom, your kids will likely try out some of the home workout moves they see you doing. Just look at this absolute unit of a baby who’s treating his body like a temple.
The Mom Who Really Needed A Lifesaver In This Moment
Kids are weird, and that’s all we’re going to say about that. They’re out here ready to cry at the drop of a hat and we’re never completely sure why. It could be because the sky is slightly lighter blue than normal or because their land-life-jacket is existing. Who knows.
