Parenting is not easy, and it never was. But it seems it is getting more challenging as the world changes. So many things to worry about.
It is getting more challenging to prepare kids for a future world while having absolutely no idea what this world will look like in a couple of years. Add that to working from home and not separating work and family life, and you reach a boiling point.
And you reach it a couple of times a day. It's more regular than your meals. But it's not all that bad… Just keep on eye on tweet number 2.
Somehow when they hug you, all the stress goes away - until the next morning. Then it starts all over again….
It takes time to learn these things…

Why do we forget how to do this witchcraft when we grow up?
My 4yo was very difficult this weekend and I yelled more than I should have but tonight right before bed she hugged me and said “best friends forever!” and just like that she managed to erase all the bad moments and this kind of witchcraft is exactly why 4yos are so scary.— Snarky Mommy (@SnarkyMommy78) July 13, 2020
Five meals a day…
Moms will be like, "Don't know why I have a headache. All I did was eat a popsicle with my kids and nothing else 10 hours ago"— Virginia McMurdo (@VirginiaMcMurdo) July 14, 2020
They are born with it.
My kids’ superpower is know when my husband is three minutes away from home and immediately shut down all their bullshit so my husband can walk in and say: wow, looks like you guys had a great day.— 👻 Haunt the Nanny 👻 (@not_thenanny) July 15, 2020
It is hard to break free.
My 4yo’s hobbies include holding me captive playing pretend for what feels like hours at a time, asking for something while I’m getting her the last thing she asked for, losing her shit cause her soup is too soupy and being ridiculously adorable so everything else is forgotten.— Snarky Mommy (@SnarkyMommy78) July 15, 2020
They should rephrase that. But, still happy....
My daughter just asked to put a Diet Coke in the oven because she found a recipe for invisible ink in her spy kit that calls for baking soda. Frankly, I’m just happy she was willing to bake the soda herself instead of asking me to do it.— Rhyming Monster (@sarabellab123) July 11, 2020
My 8yo slammed the junk drawer shut, threw her hands up, and asked, “What happened to all the tape?”— Sara Says Stop (@PetrickSara) July 14, 2020
YOU happened, kid.
Just give up...
My 3yo asked what my favourite animal is and when I said penguin she yelled ‘NO IT ISNT’ and then she yelled at me until I agreed that my favourite animal was a bat and I don’t like bats. Or 3 year olds.— MumInBits (@MumInBits) July 14, 2020
Unbelievable how there's childless people out there just living their lives, taking naps and reading books instead of cleaning poo out of the floor vents. Unreal— ~*Wellness Witchery*~ (@TheMandiEm) July 15, 2020
Keep that in mind....
My tween talks a lot of smack for someone whose entire social existence currently depends on MY Wifi.— Stephanie Ortiz (@Six_Pack_Mom) August 12, 2020
If it doesn’t smell like something died in at least one room in your house are you even a parent— MumInBits (@MumInBits) July 14, 2020

Who has the priority?
Sad and confused that I shouted at my children to be quiet, because they kept interrupting my wife, who was shouting at me— Vinod Chhaproo (@Chhapiness) August 11, 2020
