Parenting can be stressful, so why not laugh about it? At least, that’s how the parents of Twitter handle things, and the back-to-school season is no different. In the midst of buying school supplies, making lunches, meeting teachers and helping with homework, it can be easy to feel harried and humorless. Allow us to distract you for a few minutes with these hilarious Tweets from parents about all things back-to-school!
1. The carpooling curse
Day One carpooling kids to school and sports practices and I only had to put $157 in the swear jar.
I think a nanny is cheaper.

If anyone needs me, I'll be labeling school supplies from now until my kids graduate.

4. A valuable life skill
Me: What did you learn in kindergarten today?
5-year-old: A doughnut would help me remember.
Apparently she learned bribery.

5. Never forget the wine
Took my kids school supply shopping last night. Pens. Paper. Binders. Wine.
Don't judge, Target cashier.

6. Can’t they stay a few days?
The only problem with my son going back to school soon is that after school he always comes back to home. Like, every single day!

7. Never enough snacks
My kids have only been back in school for two weeks but I'm pretty sure they've already eaten 4 months' worth of after-school snacks.

8. Target’s open late, right?
My 5yos start school on Monday, so I've already got my back-to-school shopping planned for 10pm Sunday night.
