Ah, spring break: it's a time for sandy beaches, tropical beverages, and plenty of relaxation. Well, for some people at least. Parents in particular have a different take on this annual vacation from school. And, as reflected in the funniest parenting tweets about spring break, this week can mean more work than ever.
For many families, there's just no winning when it comes to spring break. If you do plan a family vacation, then someone will inevitably get sick. Staying home with your kids could mean hours of flipping water bottles and arguing with siblings. And if you had any hopes of using this time to catch up on work, well, that's probably going out the window.
That said, embracing the chaos can have its own charms. Sure, falling asleep while watching the same animated movie for the millionth time is not the same as a wild weekend in Cabo. However, there is something to be said for the little moments of bonding you get to spend with your kid during this week. Those springtime memories are priceless, even if you have to spend a lot of time learning the intricacies of video games. Hopefully, you and your family will enjoy a spring break that's perfect in its own way.
