At TODAY Parents, we love seeing moms and dads post hilarious-but-true thoughts about parenthood on social media.
The weather is getting cooler and it’s time for some of our favorite and most laugh-inducing family pastimes. A visit to the pumpkin patch, anyone?
Before you nearly lose your children (and your sanity) in that corn maze or attempt to carve pumpkins without destroying your kitchen, grab that pumpkin spice latte and laugh along with us as we count down some of the funniest things parents said online this week.
Want to share your funny parenting moments with TODAY? Tag TODAY Parents on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.
It’ll be fun, they said.
Let’s get married & have kids so instead of trying a pumpkin beer you can stop the crying while I go back into the corn maze to find the shoe.

You saw nothing!
That feeling when your mom didn’t buy any good snacks but you realize you’re the mom now and you made your own celery and rice cake bed and need to lie on it.

You don’t know me.
Except for you people!
6: I say “yes ma’am” and “no ma’am” to my teacher
Me: You sure didn’t learn those great manners from me. Where’d you learn that?

We love the honesty.
Just planning ahead!
Dear moms of adult children,
Do they ever thank you for picking their used qtips up off of the bathroom floor?
Just don’t want to get my hopes up.

Being a wife is really no different than being a mother.
No one is ever listening & they both lead to alcohol consumption.

It sneaks up on you.
One minute you’re young and cool, the next minute you’re adding Bette Midler songs to your workout playlist.

That’s actually a good question, though.
We’re very busy, OK?
One perk of living a busy life is that people assume you’re not answering messages because you’re being productive rather than because you’re feeling emotionally exhausted and eating ice cream sammies in your underwear.

Say no more.
We know a good contractor.

Really. You can’t.
Come on, Janet.
Why do they insist on wearing shorts?
The weather is turning so I’ve swapped out my daughter’s summer outfits for cooler-weather clothes and my son’s shorts for his other shorts.

Where is he?
It’s hard to keep up!
Motherhood is magical.
We all got our flu shots yesterday and my 4yo has made a game out of pretending to give me a hug and pushing on the injection site. I’m so glad I went through 9 months of pregnancy and 12 hours of labor with a failed epidural for this shit.

We’re traumatized for you.
