I think that most parents weren’t really prepared for what it was going to take to keep kids on track as they learned from home, all while they tried to maintain their own careers and keep calm during unprecedented times.
We’re all coping as best as we can, and I don’t know – I think it kind of helps to know we’re not alone.
12. That sounds about right.
It could be worse, honestly.
What do you get when you stick three kids and two adults with full time jobs in a house 24 hours a day for 6 months and then add in zoom school? A toddler who walks around all day shouting “Oh Dear God!”, apparently.

11. None of that was a thing 6 months ago.
We’re old, but we’re not that old.
10. Why are they like this?
Just ask your teacher!
9. We’ve kept it a secret for so long, too.
One more reason to hate this pandemic.
8. Now to figure out how to use them.
Where’s my drink?
Downloaded 87,642 new apps just to communicate with my kids’ school.

7. It’s a real gas, I tell you.
As long as you have a drink.
You haven't lived until you've heard a group of 1st graders shouting "mute yourself" and "i can't hear you, unmute yourself"

6. They will tell alllll your business.
Beware the child on the internet.
*5 yo on her kindergarten Zoom class*
Teacher: "So what do you do before joining our Zoom class?"
5yo: "My mommy hits me and says 'do good!"
Me, no make-up, bagel crumbs on my face, unexpectedly joining the Zoom class: "SHE MEANS I HIGH FIVE HER HAND!!!"

5. At least, today it was her.
Tomorrow, it could be any of us.
I’m the mom of the kid who said fuck by accident during the class zoom meeting today

4. At least you’re getting a workout?
It will negate the stress eating. Sort of.
3. We’re all going just a bit mad.
Some of us more than a bit.
2. We’re not even exaggerating.
Well, maybe a little.
1. You’re alive, aren’t you?
So, it could have been worse.
We are going to get through this, y’all, and listen – the kids will be all right.
For a lark, tell me your favorite thing about having your kids learning from home!
