21 Parenting Tweets That Show What The Holidays Are Really Like


Christmas is here,and it seems like the holiday came quicker than expected. If you're a parent, I'm sure that the holiday snuck up on you even faster. With handling the stresses last-minute shopping and most likely doing it with your kids in tow, finding a way to get a little laughter in is super important. That's why this week's roundup of parenting tweets are made just for you.

Though many people will say that they enjoy the holiday season in its entirety, parents understand the stress and chaos that come along with it. From bumper-to-bumper traffic to packed stores, the Christmas season can be more than overwhelming for parents. I see this through my sister and her husband every year for my niece. Christmas is truly a wonderful time of year, but parents are totally entitled to feeling a certain type of way and not feel judged one bit. Sure, I'm not a parent yet, but I definitely understand that there's chaos in the season and it can definitely drive any parent nuts.

So, if you've ever thought you were alone in feeling like you wanted it to pass, these 21 tweets prove that you're completely not on your own.
