Dad shares daily updates on hilarious conversations with his daughters – it’s impossible not to laugh

Being parenting can have undeniably stressful, let’s not forget it can also be pretty hilarious, as evidenced by the soaring popularity of one funny dad’s Twitter page.

James Breakwell, a comedy writer, and father of four daughters —a 6-year-old, 4-year-old, 2-year-old and 1-year-old— is the person behind Twitter account @XplodingUnicorn with 795,000 followers – for his incredibly fun posts on conversations with his kids. His tweets, which often include his insights on parenting, shed light on how entertaining everyday situations with your children can be when you try to reason with them, ask them what on earth they’re doing or banter with them. The general takeaway from these types of convos: Kids are smarter than we tend to give them credit for.

Below, some of our favorite tweets from his account:

His Twitter feed became viral in 2018. Now he has more than a million followers.

James talked to Buzzfeed about Twitter’s ups and downs and his kids’ reaction to it.

“They like what I do on Twitter mainly because everything is about them, “he said.” Twitter makes me a better father because I spend more time with my kids. On the other hand, Twitter makes me a much worse father because I only do it to get more material.”

The conversations they have at the end of a school day make for some very entertaining reading.

His four girls do not hold anything back.

So many parents can relate to what he tweets about.

We’re reminded of how brutally honest our kids can be.

In 2017, James published his first book “Only Dead on the Inside: A Parent’s Guide for Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse” and launched his own YouTube channel where his family and their pet pig Gilly make regular appearances.

Speaking about the first book he told Indystar, “Every other survival guide out there is, What would Bear Grylls do? This hardcore survivalist out on his own, what would he do if a bear attacked or zombies attacked?

“What about the rest of us? What if you’re out of shape, and you’re dragging along four kids, and you just have no idea what to do? You have no skills whatsoever. That’s what this book is about.”

As a parent, he says, “I think it’s pretty much the same thing. It’s just one failure after another. You just have to fail in the forward direction and hope you get the kids out the door eventually.”
