PARENT PROTIP: Don't read that email from the school; save your energy for the follow-up with corrections they'll send in a few minutes.— Henpecked Hal (@HenpeckedHal) September 6, 2023

I patiently sat through a 75 hour story about my daughter’s dream and then said wow daddy would love to hear this.— @itssherifield (@itssherifield) September 7, 2023
As spooky season approaches, my very interested toddler has been asking "WHAT HIM NAME?" when we see a skeleton or other ghoulish figure on someone's lawn, and since "I don't know" is unacceptable to people who are almost 3, I have been spitballing names of people I don't like.— Amy Colleen (@sewistwrites) September 3, 2023

I asked my son how his first full day went and he described in detail a bug he saw at recess and revealed no further information— sarah radz (@sarahradz_) September 7, 2023
My son was following me around being annoying. I turned around and asked what he wanted. He leaned in, "we've been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty." No notes! Perfect performance.— Marcy G (@BunAndLeggings) September 3, 2023

My kid handed me a tooth tonight and said “that’ll be $5” so I guess we’re done with the tooth fairy— Midge (@mxmclain) September 8, 2023

In honor of school starting, I’d like to reflect back on the time my daughter took her and her brothers money from their banks and bought 70.00 worth of scented pencils at the book fair— Maryfairyboberry🧚🏻♀️ (@maryfairybobrry) September 6, 2023
if having grown teens has taught me anything it's that you can be wrong for not helping them make better decisions and somehow at the same time also be wrong for always telling them what to do— 🌜🤷♂️Dad Moon Rising 🤷♂️🌛 (@raoulvilla) September 8, 2023
‘Good things come to those who wait’ I whisper to myself as I count the minutes until the kids are in bed and I can break out the Doritos— I Hide From My Kids (@IHideFromMyKids) September 6, 2023
My 6yo set a timer so that I could have a rest after eating. When the alarm went off it was time for me to go play with him.— Kevin The Dad (@kevinthedad) September 2, 2023
He set the timer for 11 seconds. Plenty of time for a rest.
My daughter ate a whole bag of chips and then said “I’m not even that hungry they just tasted good” and I’ve never felt closer to her— Katie D (@KatieDeal99) September 4, 2023
