Tweets From Parents About The Nightmare Of Vacationing With Kids

This time of year makes it seem like winter will never end. It's cold, it's miserable and it's grey and summer seems like a world away. You're patiently counting down to your summer vacation, especially if you have kids. Because summer vacations are made up of those blissful moments where your perfectly behaved kids will accompany you sightseeing around Europe and won't complain once about leaving the hotel pool for just one goddamn day. Ok, we're exaggerating. They might have the odd tantrum here or there. Fine, if we're being honest, is it really even a vacation if your kids are with you? Sure, there are some fun moments, but you'll probably need another vacation right after it to recover. 

These parents on Twitter managed to capture the all too relatable nightmare moments of traveling with kids, which will make you glad that it's not summer yet!

Parents Capture And Share The Brilliant Reasons For Their Toddler's Tantrums

Kids don't understand the world. To be fair, neither do most adults, but at least we are able to control our emotional responses when things upset us (which again, to be fair, even some adults struggle to do). But however nice it be to be able to have a full-blown tantrum every time we have a bad day or someone pisses us off, unfortunately, that's only a privilege that kids get. We have to put on a smile on our face and just get on with it. 

A Facebook page called Reasons My Son Is Crying is a collection of the brilliantly funny and illogical reasons why kids have had tantrums, as captured and submitted by their parents. Here is a selection of some of the funniest reasons for their meltdowns and even though we feel sorry for these little ones, they've certainly given us five minutes of chuckles.

Brutally Honest Kid Quotes Overheard By Teachers And Parents

'Out of the mouth of babes' is a painful reality for most parents. But one of the best things about kids is their ability to call it as they see it, often leading to innocent but brutally honest comments after making an observation or being asked a question. 

@livefromsnacktime is an Instagram account that documents these witticisms, started by NYC based Kindergarten teacher Alyssa Cowit. She believes that "children are honest and curious, and while often perplexed, they're brilliant – and that it's a teacher's job to take what children say seriously." Alyssa started the account — which now boasts 241k followers — "to help adults understand that children are not always acting outrageous to seek attention, but instead thinking out loud, soaking up new information, and solving problems 24/7!" 

Check out the hilarious questions and comments made by hers and other teacher's students, who also submit to the account.

Parents Tweet Their Thoughts About Sesame Street

Sesame Street is a children's television series filled with great educational messages. And even though it debuted over 50 years ago, kids everywhere (and parents) still watch the beloved children's show.

And even though parents do watch it with their kids, many will say it is absolutely the ban of their existence. With those high-pitched character voices, songs that feel like someone is drilling into your ear-hole, and just nonstop confusing backstories. 

Luckily, the parents of today have Twitter to express their true feelings. (Sorry parents of yesterday, we truly do feel your pain)

The Ripeness of Kids Clothes Described Like Wines (Illustrations)

Like wines, kids seem to ferment with age. Except there's nothing "fine" about their Cabernet Soverygross or Pee-yoo Noir. Their clothes become deeply infused and we're the ones left to "enjoy" and launder their vintage stankiness. What if there were descriptions for the "bouquet" coming off kids' clothes written like wine enthusiasts describe their adult grape juice? Via: How to be a dad

Mom Creates 'Hiring Board' With Open Positions For Kids To Earn Money

This moms allowance method for her kids is serious mom goals and weren't totally not surprised that it went viral. 

Meet Shaketha Marion McGregor, a single mother of three (Jahkeem, 13, Takeia, 10, and Serinity, 6), who has a unique system when it comes to getting things done around the house! A system in which she creates all the household jobs that are in need of hiring, and lists them as 'open positions'. There's even a resume and interview process!

This mom has thought things through! With a hiring board that's filled with open positions the kids could apply for, they fill out their resumes (including how much they want to be paid for the position), and then have to ace that interview with the boss (aka mom).

This is simply brilliant for so many reasons. Instead of handing out allowance due to constant nagging from her kids, McGregor is insisting life-long lessons in the value of money, and how the real world works. 

In an interview with Today, McGregor shared insight to her process, "One of the things I asked was, 'When can you start?' Serinity said she could start right away and my 13-year-old needed a few days because he wanted to hang out with his friends. She was far more professional."

She also added that Jahkeem, her son, had some excellent and important questions, "He wanted to know if I was taking out taxes and how much."

And her 10-year-old, Takeia, took a different route during the interview process, she spoke with an "exaggerated British accent" during her interview. "I think she thought it made her sound more polished and desirable," McGregor said. "She really thought it would help her."

Honestly, this looks like something all future parents should practice at home and we, personally, wish that we had this invaluable experience when we were growing up. Then, maybe we would've aced a lot more of those resumes and interviews.

All in all, this mom is killing it. You can follow McGregor at This Mom Means Business Inc.
