Parents are often complaining that the don’t get to spend enough quality time with their kids, but thanks to the coronavirus that’s just not the case anymore, and some parents don’t know what to do with themselves.
Being stuck in the house with your children for days on end has certainly gotten to a lot of moms and dads. Many have taken to Twitter to hilariously share the realities of hunkering down with kids, and they’re bound to give you a chuckle.
Check them out below:
Our homeschool curriculum includes my lecture series entitled “Yes You Still Have to Brush Your Teeth Even Though We Aren’t Going Anywhere”
[video call with my boss while working from home]
Boss: I need you to-
[4 kids run by: one on fire, one naked, 2 in ski masks and capes]
Boss: Never mind
I dont know what everyone is complaining about - this *homeschool thing is a breeze.
*kids all still sleeping
Hard to imagine how my kids were ever able to survive regular school days without 23 snacks.
My son chose a REALLY CONVENIENT TIME to decide that “All Star” by Smash Mouth is not only his favorite song, but the ONLY song he is willing to listen to.
Our homeschooling curriculum includes: Honors Laundry and AP Vaccumming.
Parent: What kind of tablet would you recommend as suitable for kids?
Me: Probably benadryl, valium if you're desperate. Any sedative will do in a pinch though.
Parent: I meant computer tablet.
Quarantine Day One: This could be fun! I’ve always wondered what it would be like to homeschool!
Quarantine Day One [at breakfast]: SO HELP ME GOD, MOVE YOUR FOOT AWAY FROM YOUR BROTHER’S CEREAL BOWL OR I WILL FIND A SCHOOL IN THIS COUNTRY THAT IS OPEN AND DRIVE US THERE TODAY
"I WANT THE BEST EDUCATION FOR MY CHILDREN"
"You know, I think I'm ok with my kids being dumb"
I just got excited by a stray roll of toilet paper in the closet. My kids are playing quietly by themselves in separate rooms. I’m baking gluten free sugar free vegan banana bread.
Yep, the world is ending
As I sit in isolation for hours, planning to keep a safe distance from my family, I hear them outside the door, shouting words of encouragement.
Like my kids saying, "Make us breakfast!"
And my wife adding, "GET OUT OF THE BATHROOM. YOU AREN'T SICK!"
The one thing that sustains me is the hope that when this is all over and the dust has settled, I’ll be able to pay someone to watch my kids again.
