“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 ScourgesThis 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 SwearA 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 SourceTwitter 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 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?

Thoughts
This book is seriously funny! I can’t remember ever laughing out loud so much while reading a book! You don’t have to know what Twitter or a Tweet is to enjoy this book. All you need is a teeny tiny sense of humor and this book will have you laughing your head off while everyone near you looks at you like you’ve lost your mind. I kept repeating what I read to my husband and probably told him more than half of what’s in the book.

If you have kids or grandkids or neices or nephews or any small child in your life, more than likely you’ll be able to relate to this book.

Whether you like Twitter or not, if you like funny or just need a laugh, go grab a copy of this book!! As fast as you can!

I received an advanced copy for review

Featuring the Most Hilarious Parents on Twitter”

  1. This sounds like a book I must own! It sounds perfect to pick up when I’m losing my mind. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Ha!! I bet I can totally relate to this book and I’m guessing that some of my tweets probably could have made an appearance. I know sometimes twitter becomes my own personal venting forum. 😉

  3. Oh dear! This sounds like one that would challenge my poor battered-from-childbearing bladder muscles. 🙂

  4. This sounds hilarious! Thanks for sharing, Cami
