Parenting is never easy, but at least we have Twitter to make it all even a little more relatable.
Robert Knop is the man behind the widely popular Twitter account @FatherWithTwins. Each day, the California dad gives us a little insight into his day-to-day life with 7-year-old twins — and we must say, it’s hilarious.
From sneaking Poptarts for breakfast, to secretly listening to Sheryl Crow, Knop is just like any other parent — but, he divulges about it to his nearly 19,000 Twitter followers. Though sarcastic, Knop’s unique (and yes, loving) take on parenting has resonated with moms and dads around the world.
