11 Relatable Tweets About Our Mixed Feelings Towards Summer Break This Year

I think it’s safe to say this year was weird as fuck. With the pandemic and general shutdown of the world, parents had it harder than ever with distance learning, loss of any routine, and having to mitigate the psychological trauma. This all happened without babysitters, without friends to keep our kids occupied, and without even the ability to get away for a cup of coffee in many cases. Strange times indeed.

Not to say that everyone didn’t have it rough, but certainly for the majority of parents, being thrown into the role of homeschool teacher was an added source of stress in an already shitty scenario. On top of financial stress and general uncertainty, having to wade your way through 4th grade math (or whatever other heathenish tasks you were burdened with) just added insult to injury.

For this reason, this summer break is giving us all the mixed feels. Are we happy to have a summer where things aren’t quite back to normal? Are we relieved to not be homeschooling? Are we scared of the whole world? Asking from moment to moment might elicit vastly different responses. 2020 is a real rollercoaster ride.

I guess at the very least, we’ll be glad to have the opportunity to ditch the “distance learning” hats from our already woefully overburdened heads. Lord knows our necks could use a break.

As for those just trying to keep their kids busy and occupied for all waking ours in a world that hasn’t quite opened back up? The struggle is real and definitely felt by all. Finger’s crossed some sense of normalcy will return in the coming months. Until then… happy summer?
