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!

Teaching your kid to be good with his/her hands can be a double edged sword. I learned that from experience.

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.

This is only true when there are three or more kids. The youngest always gets the attention and goodies, and is spoiled rotten. The first kid gets his goodies from being the most mature and hard working. But the middle kid is always the odd one out in any equation.

But it's still so sweet, after they're grown ups, to hear them say "Hi Mom!" or text you like "Hey Mom, what's the recipe for that awesome (insert food here) you make?" <3 We do - but hearing *Mom* never gets old.
