When I talk to my friends who have kids lately, I always hear one thing when I say, “how’s the family doing?”
And the thing I hear is a long exhale followed by an “ugh”.
Hey, it’s a tough time!
Kids are locked inside away from their friends and they can’t go to school, so you know the little ones and the parents are both getting on each others’ nerves equally.
So if this explains your life right now, we think you’ll enjoy these parenting memes.
1. There is no escape!
And you’re not safe anywhere…
Parenting is a lot like drowning except when you finally surface for air, you immediately catch on fire

2. This is Parenting 101.
You’re doing it the right way.
I couldn’t decide if I wanted bangs or not so I cut bangs for my daughter and she looks awful. Dodged a bullet there.

3. Totally flat broke.
This kid is wise beyond their years.
6-year-old: Do you have lots of money?
Me: I'm rich in other ways, like family.
6: So you're broke?

4. Don’t hate the player.
Hate the game!
I just made my daughter a grilled cheese and her response was “this is perfect, I bet you can’t do it twice” so yes, she knows how to play the game

5. Yes, that’s pretty much how it works.
Thanks for reminding us!
Son: how old are you Mommy
Me: I’m 39
Son: then you’ll be 40
Son: then 41
Son: then you die

6. This isn’t going very well.
Might be time to outsource the homeschooling.
If I knew I was going to have to homeschool my kids, I would have made sure my husband used a condom.

7. Nothing seems to be going right.
is my house clean and tidy and laundry folded neatly and meals prepped for the week?
but am i less stressed and making fun memories with my kids who are playing nicely?

8. This is very dangerous.
Proceed with caution…
Nobody is more drunk with power than a 5-year-old telling you to “go fish.”

9. Thank you for this!
It’s gonna go right on the refrigerator!
One of my favorite things about being a pre-school mom is I’m occasionally gifted handmade art projects that look like a giant penis.

10. Mommy! Please help me!
When will it stop?!?!
The 8yo disrupted my sleep again, so I texted my mom at 2AM to ask when it stops.
— Laura Marie (@lmegordon) January 2, 2021
11. Okay, you’re probably right.
They’re learning it from watching you…
Me: You have to tone down your flirting in front of the kids
Husband: Why? It’s good for them to see we like each other
2YO: (runs in room, slaps me on the butt) DAT ASS!
Husband: Yeah, ok

12. Teach your children well.
A chip off the old block.
My kid took snacks with her to the bathroom and I’m all teary-eyed because I hadn’t expected my child to master life at such a young age

13. Yikes. We’re very sorry to hear about this.
Might be time to have some family counseling.
