Oh, parents…we feel your pain right now.
Everyone has been crammed together for so long that we’re all going a little crazy. And the kids…oh, those kids.
Aren’t they just delightful when they’re not allowed to do anything with their friends?
We all know that the statement above is meant to be sarcastic, right?
Parents, read through these funny tweets and at the very least, you’ll realize that you are not alone in your madness right now.
1. That’ll show him!
You gotta mess with them a little bit. Trust me.
My son missed curfew last night so as punishment I'm making him use the phone charger that only works if you angle the end of the cord just right

2. That is a brilliant strategy.
Now is the time to turn it around.
My kitten runs away when the kids come near her, and now I’m mad that I never thought to try that myself.

3. Just let him be.
Being a superhero takes a lot of work.
Why is my son sleeping on the floor like this? LMFAO pic.twitter.com/JYe0tBeQN7

4. Dammit! Knew that was gonna happen.
Are we missing anything else?

5. I think about 85% of people on the road are doing this.
Are you one of them? Don’t lie!
Whenever I drive now, I wonder how many of the cars I see are also people just driving around aimlessly to escape their families.

6. Planting people all day.
Kind of cool name, though…
My daughter just called a cemetery a person garden. I'm not even sure what she thinks is happening there.

7. Why the hell not?
What do you have to lose?
Having a third kid is like having a sixth drink. You're going to be miserable in the morning anyway, so why not?

8. It can always get worse.
My 5yo has gone from simply repeating back everything I say to now repeating back everything I say but with a question mark at the end. This should serve as a reminder to us all that no matter how bad things are they can always get worse.

9. Same here…
Do you think she’ll listen to you?
Use your time wisely I tell my daughter, knowing full well I wasted an entire decade of my life watching MTV.

10. They are remarkable.
And you never know what’s next!
The magical thing about toddlers is they can be mid tantrum and seamlessly cut to the best performance of the itsy bitsy spider you’ve ever seen.

11. This is great!
Giving the mascot the third degree.
6yo's class is interviewing the school mascot today for their daily zoom call and I am losing it
"Do you sleep at the school?"
"Do you have lots of money?"
"Do you have a secret identity?"
"Are you Mrs Longo?"

12. Pass the Farmer John, please.
Just go with it and don’t tell her until she’s a teenager.
Kids mispronouncing things is super adorable but at some point I will have to tell my daughter we don’t put Farmer John cheese on spaghetti.

13. You’ll learn this lesson.
One way or another…
Me, before I had kids: My kids will EAT what I put in FRONT OF THEM!
Me, this week: peeling the breading off of Wendy's chicken nuggets (because it's "too spicy") so the 3yo will eat it.
You learn. You change.

Are those accurate, or what?
I think we all know the answer to that…
Moms and dads: now we want to hear from you!
In the comments, tell us how parenting during the lockdown is working for you.
We want to hear it all!
The good, the bad, and the very, very ugly!
