We’re all in the midst of a very strange and unique situation right now, aren’t we?
Hopefully, we’re over some kind of hump now, but there’s no telling yet, is there?
One thing that is for sure is that parents have been spending A TON of time cooped up with their kids. Maybe too much time…
But at least we’re getting some humor out of this whole thing, because parents across the board are taking to Twitter to vent and let the rest of us know how crazy they’re going!
Let’s take a look at some funny tweets from parents who might be going just a little bit stir crazy…
1. Learned from the best.
Parents: take note.
5-year-old: *leads her little sister around on a dog leash*
Me: What do you think you're doing?
She learned from the best.

2. Well, what do you want from me?
It’s never enough!
3: mummy tell me a story
Me: *tells detailed story about mermaids, unicorns & hedgehogs with romance, adventure, suspense and plot twists*
Me: did you enjoy that sweetie

3. She knows what she wants.
To each their own…
I'm in the car with my kid and her friend and the friend just said to my kid in the most serious tone ever "I don't go to the beach for SUN, I go to DIG"

4. Totally shook.
Who is this kid?
My 2yo daughter just casually walked in my office, told me to get my feet off my desk, pushed my chair in towards the computer and said “work, daddy” before slamming the door on her way out and I’ve never been more shook in my life

5. Don’t do it!
You better be careful with this one…
My 8yo daughter told me she wants to be a writer when she grows up, and I just sat in silence staring and terrified that the next thing I said might encourage her.

6. You like this?!?!
How could anyone like this?!?!
also, last night my 10 year old said to me “i like Coronavirus, i just wish it didn’t kill people or make anyone sick”
i reply “you LIKE coronavirus?”
“yeah! i like quarantine!”
??? he’s definitely my son.

7. That is amazing.
This kid might have a future in comedy.
When Willy Wonka hit puberty, his gobstoppers dropped. ?
~ my son just said this to me while we watch Gene Wilder own that red top hat and purple jacket

8. Just what we need.
And evil genius in the making.
Today in parenting during quarantine, my daughter plays make believe with the character from Frozen.
HER: Elsa’s gonna use her powers.
ME: what’s she gonna use her powers to do?
HER: DESTROY THE SUN!

9. It’s going really well.
I bet you can’t wait for schools to reopen…
Asked my son what you call the black part in the middle of your eye and he said ‘the yolk?’ so that’s how homeschooling is going
— Paddy Raff (@paddyraffcomedy) June 10, 2020
10. Not having it.
What kind of parent are you?
If you're a Mom and have a white couch, carpet or shirt, I'm out.
You clearly are not my people.

11. This is TRUTH.
How could you ever turn down pizza?
Every single parent in the history of kid’s birthday parties who was offered a slice of pizza and declined really wanted that pizza.
— Simon Holland (@simoncholland) May 10, 2020
12. That’s gonna be rough.
Better start weaning them off of it right now.
My kids aren’t sure how they’re going to adjust from 300 snacks before noon down to 2 when they start school again in the fall.
