25 funny and relatable tweets from celebrity parents
"Why don't kids understand that their nap is not for them but for us?"

They have to deal with changing diapers, lack of sleep, and even changes in their own body just like the rest of us.
And just like any other parent, they know that the key of surviving parenthood is to live each day with lots of patience, love and a wicked sense of humor.
