There are many posts and even books telling you how glorious and fulfilling it is raising children. The reality is, though, that you're often being vomited on, you have literally zero spare time, dragging insomnia, and we're the ones that absolutely sympathize with you.

While producing a decent human being from scratch is nothing short of a heroic act, you don't have to be super serious about it all the time. Laughter and parenting memes, after all, can make even the worst situation seem easier. Funny parenting memes are the amusing little jokes that everyone who's going through a process called parenthood, will find relatable and totally hilarious.

So, do you feel like throwing a party every time your kid finally goes to sleep at night? Do you dread the thought of having to move your child's car seat into another car? Is parenting your children akin to dealing with a pack of Velociraptors? If you find yourself nodding wildly to any or all of the above, then this list of hilarious parent memes compiled by Bored Panda is especially for you. Don't forget to vote for the funniest memes!

At first, the new mother is exasperated because baby's first word is "dada." I always tell her, "Be careful of what you wish for. There will come a day where you wonder if your baby even knows the word 'dada'."

Yep, this happens every day. Except my toddler knows how to open the door so both her and the cat can always watch me do my business. 😉

Small house, big house...they will find you. Sometimes our son will sleep in the same bed as my wife and I...despite being a King size bed, he'll always manage to drape himself over me and into a corner.

Five cats. All of whom accompany me to the bathroom even I am just getting a comb. They all sit down at my feet and expect to be petted and cooed over every time. With one exception, they are barred from my bedroom but it doesn't stop them from endless scratching and whining. What is it about a closed door that makes dogs and cats want to see the other side of it??

My cat will almost beat me to the bathroom. She used to sit beside the tub and meow when I took a shower. My sons would bang on the door the whole time I showered if I shut them out. If I left the door open they would come in and check on me and then go away. So actually had more privacy when left the door open.

Genius! I think I would use something other than locks, though, because kids who know how to work locks get into trouble. Besides that, this is awesome, especially the sproingy door stops. Those things kept me entertained for hours as a kid.
