I just wanted five minutes to drink my coffee so I sent my kid in the other room to look for a toy that’s in my pocket.
parenting makes you do weird things like hate the daylight for waking your kids and preventing them from going to bed
Quarantine level: I let my 3yo play with playdoh before 8am and I didn’t even try to stop her when she started combining colors cause it gave me a few min of peace and quiet
Don’t tell my kids but when I say they can play video games as a reward for being done their schoolwork the reward is for me and the reward is silence and being left alone
Husband and kids go out for a walk.
Me: Ahhhhhhh....peace and quiet!
Neighbor: This is a perfect time for circular saw use.
Homeschooling Tip: if you count Tiktok in their rooms as kids music, dance and PE classes you might get a few hours alone in peace.
Wife [walking into living room]: What time did you get up?
Me: 5 AM.
Wife: But it’s the weekend! WHY SO EARLY?!
Me [sipping coffee]: I’ve had 3 kid-free hours of silence.
Wife: Why didn't you wake me?
7 got mad at me and didn't talk to me for a while hour.
How do I make all 3 of them mad at me so I get a good solid hours peace?
Wrong answers only.
Live ~ Laugh ~ Lock yourself in the bathroom and enjoy some alone time today. You deserve it.
If you see a car sitting in an abandoned parking lot, just know it's probably a mom, trying to get some peace, quiet, and work done. #Quarantine
