Rarely do I ever leave my parent’s house without a bag filled with random snacks from the grocery store, purchased for the kids.
This happens weekly.
The bags are typically filled with food the kids will like but couldn’t possibly finish before the next bag comes a week later.
Finally, after years of witnessing this handoff, my daughter asked, “Dad, why don’t nanny and pop-pop think you don’t know how to food shop?”
“I don’t know. But I’m sure I’ll think the same thing about you when you’re my age.”
Here are some of the funniest parenting tweets and memes from parents this week.
when I was in school, sandwich bags didn’t close. you just kinda folded it over itself and hoped for the best.

This woman just yelled at me for not wearing a mask and getting within six feet of her.
I replied: “But this is my bed and we’re married.”

My teen attends school for 4.5 hours two days a week, has live Zoom classes one day a week, and has homework/days off two days a week.
After her second weekly school day, she said, “I had an exhausting day. So glad we have a 5 day weekend.”
There’s no coming back from this.

11: (looking over my shoulder at my computer) How. To. Make. Hard. Boiled. Eggs. ARE YOU KIDDING ME, MOM?!
Me: GET BACK IN CLASS!
11: Well, someone failed cooking.

All I'm saying is I'm all for keeping those 6' guidelines on the floor in the checkout area long after COVID is over

My daughter just told me not to cut her chicken nuggets in half because she “wants to eat like a grown-up” so clearly I’m doing a fantastic job at modelling a grown-up diet.

People are starting to relax about coronavirus. I coughed at the grocery store and only one person tased me.
