These Are The Funniest Parenting Tweets Of The Week

Welp, the 4th of July has come and gone, which means that summer is basically over. Right? Oh, you mean our kids will still be home for the next several weeks without anything to look forward to, other than going back to school? Well that's ... great. Just great. How are we supposed to keep them in line when we can't threaten to cancel a fun holiday anymore?! Christmas is too far away to use that as a threat, they know we wouldn't remember. It's insane to think that summer is just chugging right along, and pretty soon we'll be shopping for school supplies and trying to get our kids to go to bed at a decent hour again. Until then, at least we have a few more weeks of funny summer tweets from fellow parents!

We're both horrified by and jealous of how late these kids can sleep. But really, why get out of bed before noon if you don't have to? Those morning hours are pretty much a waste, and think of all the money you'll save on coffee!

Popsicles for breakfast. Chips for lunch. Dinner? What's dinner? Go forage in the kitchen and find some fruit or something. It's not even dark until after 8 p.m. anyway, who can even keep track of dinner during the summer.

Summer is a lot of fun ... for kids. But for parents, it means being constantly bombarded with requests for snacks, having to plan fun outings, keeping your kids from fighting 24 hours a day, and listening to them whine about how bored they are all damn day. Summer is only fun for the kids, guys.

It's very easy to lose track of personal grooming habits when you lie around like sloths all day, everyday. We realized a few days ago that we couldn't remember the last time we'd given our kids an actual bath. But they swim everyday, and the pool is chlorinated, so that counts. Right?

And the thing they want you to watch over and over and over again is always something you've already seen them do a hundred times before. But not in that new setting, so we guess that changes things?

The beach is a lot of work with very little pay-off, let's be honest. It sounds like a good idea, but expectation NEVER matches reality.
