Parenting tweets can seem like a dime a dozen, but some of them really do rise to the top!
Out of all of the funny, forgettable, flash-in-the-pan tweets about what it’s like to be a parent right now, these 12 are definitely going to stand the test of time.
12. Same goes for Christmas break.
If we ever have one of those again.
IDK who needs to hear this but don’t wait until the end of the quarantine to discover you never pulled your kid’s lunch out of her backpack.

11. You’ve got to get out ahead of these things.
Otherwise they’ll eat you alive (but not their dinner).
10. Can we have a “don’t ask me again” option?
Because yes, we’re still watching, judgy.
For the remainder of the quarantine, please assume we are always “still watching.”

9. I wonder where he learned that?
Do as I say and not as I do.
I asked my son for a bite of his Chick-fil-A sandwich and he said no but he gave me a kiss on my forehead and told me he loved me “a whole bunch though.”
Not the same, son.

8. We were all so cute back in March.
Now we’re haggard and have accepted the screen time truth.
No one is full of more false hope than a parent making a colorful daily schedule for their kids during the Covid-19 quarantine.

7. A phase that will last his entire life.
At least, that’s how it’s been for me.
My 4yo is in a phase where he refuses to wear jeans because he says they “just aren’t as comfy as my sweatpants” and I have honestly never felt more seen or understood.

6. Eh there are worse things than tacos.
My 4 year old just asked why she can’t eat tacos every day and honestly, I think I’d have an easier time explaining where babies come from.

5. What kind of monster doesn’t give their kids cookie dough?
Let them take their chances with salmonella like the rest of us.
“Moms don’t get sick from raw cookie dough”
-and other lies I tell my kids

4. Don’t do this to me.
BOSS: due to the virus we need everybody to work from home
ME: please, i have a family

3. It’s nice to have friends in these trying times.
In all times, I suppose.
My wife and I pastor a church in Sheridan, Arkansas. We have struggled to have children, but today my wife is 13 weeks. We had to cancel our gender reveal due to COVID 19.. we went Facebook live while in our home instead. When the video was over we heard this outside.. Friends >> pic.twitter.com/B8oCvsx0wx

2. It does take up an awful amount of time.
Among other things.
5-year-old: Do I have to fall in love someday?
5: Good. I have stuff to do.

1. Oh how the tables have turned…
Now you decide whether or not to be mature.
What a crazy world— my 5yo just requested me to please not be loud or crazy because she has a call at 10 with her class.

I’m going to be telling people about these, or sharing them, for a while!
Have you already laughed hard enough to share one with your friends? Tell us which in the comments!
