The 7-year-old’s class was working on measuring. She’s in the same room with me, but my back is turned to her, because I’m doing work at my desk.
She’s on the couch with my laptop.
The teacher instructs the class to find something around the house and measure it. She grabs the portable AC unit that needs water to blow cold air.
She spills all of the water on my laptop.
The entire class got to watch my frantic face as I tried to clean it up, tried not to lose my shit, and slowly sunk into the realization that the laptop might be dead.
I didn’t realize this until I caught my face in the little box on Zoom.
I pretended to be having the best time ever while wiping off my laptop and silently crying and screaming inside.
It’s a look.
Here are some of the funniest parenting tweets and memes from parents this week.
I think it’s pretty funny that my autocorrect automatically puts WAP in all caps but forces me to manually capitalize the first letter in my husband’s name every time I type it.

I showed my selfie to my eight-year-old son, and he said it must be photoshopped because I "look fatter in real life."

My 4yo drew a picture for my birthday of me resting on a bed and I’m just happy some version of me gets to rest around here.

Me: A good thing about working from home is getting to go the toilet without any annoying guys trying to talk to me

Does anyone have a recipe for “ I don’t know” or “I don’t care”.
It’s what my kids want for dinner and I don’t have any good recipes.

Me: It's National Daughter Day.
8-year-old: What did you get me?
Me: Nothing. It's not a gift-giving holiday.
8: I'll remember that on Father's Day.

Her, 4: I want a baby! New baby sister? Or brother?
Me: We can’t have another baby. You would need a new daddy for mommy to have another baby
Her: New cat?
