The Funniest Parenting Tweets of the Week (December 15, 2022)

To be a parent or to not be a parent. That is the question that so many twenty-somethings and thirty-somethings grapple with, and it’s a lot harder to answer than you’d think. Of course, some people don’t have a choice in whether they become parents. Babies sometimes just happen to people, and that’s that. But for those with the privilege of family planning, it’s all about the timing. Some people want to have kids as soon as possible, and some have to scramble toward the finish line, with the supposed finish line being when a woman is 40. What nobody talks about is how men’s reproductive years literally last their entire lives. Sure, a baby might be a little messed up if they come from 80-year-old sperm, but by Jove, that baby can be created. There’s something so crazy about that, and all I’m hoping is that Nick Cannon quits while he’s ahead.
