The internet is utterly overflowing with amazingness – news, recipes, crafts, e-books, movies, anything and everything you can imagine. But with so much content it can be a real challenge finding the BEST stuff. That’s why everyone loves a good, curated list of recommendations. And that’s exactly what we have for you today! We searched high and low to find you must-follow foodie and funny parents on Instagram. Enjoy!
FUNNY PARENTS ON INSTAGRAM
Your kids probably watch Nickelodeon (and maybe you did as a kid, too), but have you discovered NickMom.com, yet? Both the website and their Instagram account, @officialnickmom, feature the funniest aspects of motherhood. So true and so funny!
Ever wonder, “What on EARTH was my toddler thinking?” Here’s a hilarious glimpse at the world from her perspective.
From the mom of said toddler above (aka the brilliantly funny MommyShorts) comes Average Parent Problems — with the description “When you want to sleep in on a Saturday, but you have kids.” She features totally typical (and often embarrassing) parenting moments. The ones you usually wouldn’t share with anyone. Tag your photos #AverageParentProblems and she might feature you!
Kids Are the Worst
“We love them a lot, but sometimes kids are the worst.” That’s the tagline for this Instagram account that shows us how monstrous and maniacally funny kids can be. Peruse through these after a long, hard day and relish in the fact that some kids behaved worse than yours did.

Run by Real Simple, this account curates “life’s real, unfiltered moments” both from the site’s editors and moms everywhere using the hashtag #WomenIRL. The resulting collection of photos helps remind you that you’re not alone. Other kids throw their mom’s car keys in the toilet and have tantrums when they can’t eat the remote, too.

This feed often makes us laugh until we cry as parents share their moments of exasperation while debating with the pickiest eaters and their utterly random, illogical excuses for not eating something.

This feed is more of a hodge-podge of topics including parenting news and general family living, but they often feature the funniest parts of the journey.
If you haven’t heard of Honest Toddler yet, you’re going to freak out at how funny she is. She’s a brutally honest toddler – much like many of our own little monsters. It’s just a lot funnier when the comments are directed at some other mom.

How to Be a Dad
Moms don’t have a corner on the market of parenting funniness — dads have their own unique experiences and struggles, too. How to Be a Dad captures it in perfect sarcastic silliness.
In her own words: “I’m a mother, a writer and a professional funny person whose family occasionally slows down enough for me to take semi-blurry pictures.”
Things I forgot to teach my toddler: If you wipe your face on the roll of toilet paper, first of all, WHYYYY? And second of all, you can’t wash the roll of toilet paper off in the sink. In related news, we’re out of toilet paper. And our sink is clogged. #toddlerlife #thingsmytoddlerruined #atleastherfaceisclean A photo posted by robynhtv (@robynhtv) on
