Let’s face it – it would be totally understandable if parents had lost their senses of humor over the past couple of years. It’s been a lot, trying to help our kids navigate online school while we try working from home and you know, trying to keep everyone from getting sick and/or dying in the process.
Luckily for all of us, humor is one of the ways that human beings cope with stress, which is why these 10 recent posts popped up to save us all from ourselves.
10. It’s not the worst advice.
It might not work out for the best, though.
Dropping my daughter off at camp and she’s a little anxious. Told her to find the biggest camper and start a fight to establish dominance.

8. No one is themselves on vacation.
You just have to go with it.
10, every night at dinner: I won’t eat that.
10, on vacation at dinner: I’ll take the pan-seared branzino in lemon butter sauce with wild rice, thank you.

7. Say what you want about toddlers, they’re very encouraging.
I’m not sure it makes up for the rest of it, but.
My toddler clapped while I was eating my second piece of cake and this is the encouragement that’s been missing from my life.

6. Just assume parents have tried it.
I promise we know how to use the internet.
I love when I mention getting frustrated with my kids and someone’s like “have you tried TALKING to your kids?”
Omg thank you you visionary and here I’ve been communicating with fucking charades silly me

5. The stakes are high.
So is the investment.
We’ve officially spent more time planning our Disney vacation than we did naming our second child

4. They’re not far off.
It’s even less fun than that most days, but at least no one tells you to go to bed.
My kids are playing grown-up. From what I can tell, it involves running around yelling "I'm late for work!" and going to the eye-dentist

3. We’ve all had this daydream.
We would never do it, but it can take the edge off.
My kids & I have spent A LOT of time at home this past year, so I'm looking forward to when we can safely travel again. They have never seen snow & I want to take them somewhere to experience it. I hope they will love it. Because then, I'll leave them there.

2. I don’t have the patience for that.
Eat, don’t, whatever.
Tonight our 4 year old ate his dinner in a record time of 4 hours 27 minutes

1. This is downright hilarious.
If the boyfriend didn’t laugh, get rid of him.
My kid addressed my boyfriend as “big sexy beard man” and I felt like I should reprimand him for not being respectful but unfortunately I was laughing too hard

I really needed a laugh today, y’all. So glad I found these.
