Can we all agree that parenting is very hard?
Can we also agree that it’s even harder for most moms and dads right now because of this worldwide shutdown that we’re all dealing with?
Everyone is on top of each other, there’s no privacy, and every person out there is slowly going at least a little bit insane.
In short, it’s a shitshow.
But, hey, at least parents are being very entertaining on Twitter, right?
That’s gotta count for something.
Let’s all enjoy these hilarious tweets from parents who have been stuck at home with their kids for wayyyy too long.
1. She’s finally arrived.
You must be so proud!
My teenage daughter screaming “I AM BEING CALM!” just became a woman.

2. Which one is better?
Pick your poison…
Cook for your kids and they'll eat and not help clean up.
Teach your kids to cook and they'll eat and not help clean up a way worse mess.

3. Is that okay, honey?
Sticking to a very tight schedule.
Welcome to parenthood. You'll find yourself asking your spouse ridiculous questions like, "do you mind if I take a shower?"

4. Almost too much to handle.
Things are about to get very, very scary.
There is nothing more unsettling than a 5-year-old trying to whisper something into your ear.

5. This really isn’t going well.
The Waffle Wars of 2020 are in full swing.
Me: Oh, I’m sorry. Is the sacrifice I made for 9 months not enough? Sharing my body and nourishing a child twice didn’t prove my level of unselfishness? Why must I constantly give and give and-
Husband: JUST LEAVE THE LAST TWO WAFFLES FOR THE KIDS YOU’VE ALREADY HAD 8

6. This. Right here.
They should look exhausted, right?
The actors who play parents in commercials never look tired enough.

7. Hmmmm, I don’t know about that.
Sounds pretty demanding to me.
7-year-old: I don't want a big cake for my birthday.
Me: That's very humble of you.
7: I want a small cake every day of the year.

8. How generous of her!
And that’s parenting for you.
Parenting in a nutshell?
My 4yo just offered to let me go to sleep if I gave her 100 dollars.

9. I thought that was mine…
You were wrong!
My kids brought me breakfast in bed, then proceeded to eat MY breakfast. If that doesn't sum up motherhood I don't know what does.

10. Decisions, decisions…
It’s clear who’s in charge here.
My 3yo cried for half an hour cause I wouldn’t let her eat a 2nd popsicle for lunch and then all of a sudden she stopped crying, sighed heavily and said, “Fiiiine, I’ll have a cookie instead”.

11. How cute.
What an adorable little angel.
Went to pay for my Starbucks in the drive-thru & the barista said “the handsome man behind you is going to pay for yours!” I look back & say “Oh! That’s my husband!”
She said “That’s so sweet! You’re lucky!” & then my son hollered “yeah you don’t live with him!”
Kids are fun.
