Spring Break? Break? What do you mean, break? Spring break might be a break for kids, but isn't there a better name for the week parents must survive when their kids are at home all day from school?

Kids are like diamonds. They're expensive and they don't ever break, especially during spring break. Here are 20 more appropriate titles I propose parents call the week kids are at home during the spring season:

  1. Spring Breakdown

  • Spring De-Cleaning
  • Spring Fling Food Week
  • Spring Training for Combat Week
  • Shriek Week
  • The Extra Work Week
  • Not for the Weak Week
  • Spring Roll Over and Cry Week
  • What Do I Do with My Kids? Week
  • The Babysitter Exodus and Feels Like They'll Never Return Week
  • Are We There Yet? Week
  • Unofficial Fire Prevention Week
  • The Spring-Time Moves So Slow Week
  • Spring in Nobody's Step Week
  • Home is Where the Hotel is Messy Week
  • Cabin and High Fever Week
  • Spring For-Bored Kids Week
  • Only for Kids Amusement Park Week
  • The Now What? Week
