We all know that having a good sense of humor can help a lot on a bad day, but something that can help even more is knowing you’re not alone – and laughing at your frustrations together. Other parents out there are just as tired, need a break, and have toddlers that would love to argue with them all day about why they should be able to have another cupcake. And while many of us may have a hard time putting it into words in a way that captures the ridiculousness, thankfully there are loads of parents out there with enough wit for the rest of us. Over the past year they’ve shared their humor publicly and have had parents ROFLing across the internet and today we’re sharing the fruits of their labor – what we believe are 2014’s funniest parenting memes and videos.
We hope that these give you a good laugh – even if it takes you a few sittings to watch them all because a certain special someone has spilled something, broken something, or taken all their clothes off since you started reading this.

If you haven’t ever seen ‘Mommy Shorts’ yet, you’re in for a treat.
