Funny Parenting Tweets About the Cruelly Unforgiving Memories Of Children

Aging sucks for a lot of reasons. Having to pay bills. Working forty hours a week. Taking care of a family. You get deep, craggy wrinkles, grey hair, and probably some annoying memory loss to boot. Names become much harder to remember, memories begin to mix together. It’s all a mess. But you know who doesn’t have to worry about that? Kids. Kids have the most incredible memories, often at the disadvantage of their weary, life-addled parents. Twitter user @toddedillard shared one such instance of obnoxiously vivid memory yesterday. It seems that two years ago he burned a single side of his daughter’s quesadilla, and she refuses to let him live the scarring dinner down. The tweet inspired other parents to share their own struggles with their kids’ impeccable recollection skills. While it must be frustrating to have your child constantly wielding “the receipts,” these anecdotes are pretty damn entertaining.
