We all go a little feral when we spend too much time on our own, but since little kids have had less time to learn to navigate social situations, they tend to return to their “natural” heathen states much faster!
Like these 15 bundles of joy, who are definitely going to need a bit of coaching before easing back into society on a regular basis.
15. My kids fought over who got to start the dishwasher this morning.
And I wanted to do it!
Quarantine level: kids are fighting over who ate the most pretend food.

14. It’s like they inherently know how to hurt you the most.
THAT IS LIKE GOLD, SON.
13. He’s going to make a great dad someday.
Not a great husband, but a great dad.
My son drew abs on his stomach with a sharpie and then fell asleep holding a bag of Doritos and I think we finally have the hero we all deserve.

12. I’m not sure your school is going to get that accreditation.
I mean, it should, but it probably won’t.
My son is singing “Back with crack, behind my sack” to the tune of “Back in Black” in case you’re wondering what we learned at homeschool today.

11. It seems like she was focused, though.
Also, you’re about to get a written pitch for a new dog.

10. They’ve been working on that schtick for awhile.
I would still get that Zoom priest, though. Just in case.
2 yo: *running after his brother, screaming in a demonic tone*
12 yo: The power of Christ compels you.
2: *immediately falls to floor in silence*
Me: Anyone know if I can Zoom an exorcist?

9. Four seems like a lot.
How about none? That’s fair.
Please say a prayer for my 8 year old son, he has to write 4 sentences.

8. He’s not going back to preschool, though.
Those kids are leaving the house for full days and that’s not negotiable.
My kid was supposed to enter second grade but after months of homeschooling he’ll be going back to kindergarten.

7. I am actually wheezing.
Give this kid his Emmy.
6. I would really be tempted to say yes.
Because what even are rules anymore?
Not a damn soul:
7: can I have 3 of those dog treats for a snack tonight?

5. That’s one step away from smothering.
But also, I bet it really kept her quiet.
My kid just walled her sister into the pillow fort cause she was "mean" and that's some real cask of amontillado shit

4. It’s a whole experience.
I’m not sure what sort of experience, but certainly an experience.
I get being possessive of your food, but my kid just took his s’more to the bathroom and that feels a bit extreme

3. And it’s one we don’t have to wash!
Or you know, pick out every day.
If you see my kid on zoom in the same clothes he’s been wearing the past five days mind your business our homeschool has a uniform.

2. What’s the difference between oranges and pineapple, really?
I mean, both are wrong on pizza I’m just saying.
Yes hi my 5 year old ate orange slices on his pizza and I’d like the number for the FBI please

1. I guess I don’t really see the problem.
A face mask is a face mask so call it a win.
I’m dying, but also, I’m wondering if I’m going to need some of these lessons myself.
How are you planning to ease your kids back into social interactions?
If you’ve got ideas we want to hear them in the comments!
