Parenthood is hard work–and to handle it like a pro (or without going crazy), having a great sense of humor is a top priority.

That’s why we love the hilarious pictures and captions that make up Average Parent Problems, an Instagram account dedicated to capturing photos of the most mundane–but totally truthful–ups and downs of daily life with little ones. Which of these are the most familiar to your household?

For all the hardworking parents (and equally hardworking grandparents) out there, this one’s for you.
