18+ Parents Who Could Use A Break

This year has been tough for everyone, but it has been particularly hard for a lot of parents who have had to homeschool their kids, and have been stuck at home with them 24/7.

With this in mind, there might be a lot of parents who have been feeling a little overwhelmed this year, such as these 18+ parents who need a vacation.

"My dad likes to check in on his greenhouse temperature from work with this camera."

I wonder if this person's father is still checking his greenhouse temperature or if he had a heart attack after seeing this?

"After a semester of virtual school at home, my kid has a better understanding of the importance of caffeine."

I find that I still get grumpy if I'm drinking coffee, I'm just faster and more effective with my grumpiness.

"5G harms people!"

You can just hear the depressed sighing of a thousand parents by looking at this photo.

The Ol' Switcheroo!

This father wrote, "Our baby announcement photo. My wife looked so obnoxiously thin 24 hours after delivery that I joked I looked like the one who had just delivered. So we decided to swap for a funny photo."

"Glad to see my local Walmart finally has a place to drop off your kids while you shop!"

It clearly isn't shaping up to be a very popular option amongst parents! Or, maybe the damn kids keep escaping!

"When my wife talks about having another baby, I like to remind her how painful breastfeeding every time."

Wow, those facial expressions really get across a real sense of true discomfort! I can see why these would be an effective deterrent!

"This kid is going places."

This kid is clearly an evil genius in the making. I cannot think of anything more time consuming and annoying than having to contest with one of those damn claw machines every morning.

"Don't choose the red kid's bath paint!"

Good God, I have never heard of "Bath paint," but by Christ, it would not be something I would ever be getting for my kids after seeing this!

This Parent Was Clearly Sick Of This Elf!

Looking at this makes me realize how much I would have loved to have seen an Elf 2 directed by George A Romero.

"True hate!"

I love the way she signed it off "hate" instead of "love." This is the sort of thing that you imagine a kid would think of and think, "Yes, that is genius, they'll know I'm super serious now!"

"My wife put me in charge of moving elf on the shelf around."

This is clearly someone who has more restraint than the bloodied elf that we saw previously, but someone who is nearly at the end of their rope in terms of moving this damn elf around.

"Every time I take a shower, I draw something on the mirror so it reappears when my brother showers. Today I went for something creepier than normal..."

Well, this is certainly creepy, that's for sure! I'm getting very strong Trainspotting vibes from this.

"My toddler found a white ink pad and immediately turned into Saruman."

If you have a toddler and you leave white ink anywhere other than locked away in a safe, then you have to realize that you brought this upon yourself!

"Found out my kid had this on his school classroom wall all year."

Kids will relish any opportunity to embarrass their parents, and, in fairness, parents do their own bit for this I guess.

"My daughter's favourite way to cool me off after a long run on a hot day."

That's some good aim! Most kids will also relish the opportunity to blast their parents in the face with a hose from time to time.

"Our house has 10 rooms..."

Ah, but this dad will be wishing for these overbearing days back as soon as any of these kids move out...probably?

"My favorite photo I've ever taken is of a kid tripping into $100k car."

You just know that this kid's parent must have been just off shot having a panic attack.

"That split second after your boy smashes the back of his head into your face while taking family photos."

This is a family picture that really gets a sense of "family" though, if that makes sense. Perfectly captured by a child blissfully unaware of the pain and anguish they are causing their parents.

"Received an appropriate gift this year."

I feel like there will be a lot of people who will be hanging cathartic Christmas decorations like this, especially parents who have had a year of homeschooling!

"When people ask what it's like having kids, I just show them this."

What a clear and concise way of conveying the insanity that children are capable of. Also, looking at this and sighing makes me realize that I am indeed now old.
