45 Tweets That Break Down The Math Of Parenting

"Parenting is 10% knowing you would kill for your children and 90% suppressing the urge to kill them."

If parenting were a pie chart, what would it look like?

This is a question moms and dads on Twitter have been attempting to answer for years. For some, parenting might be 60 percent “looking for shoes,” 20 percent “cleaning things off the floor” and 20 percent “stepping on Legos.” For others, it’s more like 50 percent “driving kids around,” 40 percent “trying to put clothes on them” and 10 percent “issuing empty threats.”

We’ve rounded up 45 mathematical tweets about the reality of parenting. The following math might not always quite add up, but it’s certainly relatable.
