It’s May! Are you kidding me!?
That’s how long we’ve been putting up with 2020’s stank ass. Sadly, the year isn’t getting better, if anything, it’s getting worse. Just like those #bossbabe influencers, it seems that 2020 picked a word to focus on this year, and that word is “clusterfuck”. May brought us news of muder hornets, cicada invasions, and more senseless deaths due to racism and systematic abuses of power.
Some things change while others stay the same. Raising kids may come with new challenges in these unprecedented times, however they also come with the same old baggage that’s been latched onto childrearing since the beginning of time. Luckily, we can vent, have some laughs, and bask in the camaraderie of all the other parents that are also just fucking grasping at their last straw while also trying to plunge renegade Barbies out of the toilet.

7. Just. Leave. Me. Alone.
It’s amazing how quarantine with kids has lowered my standards for cleanliness. Like, a lot. I’ve gone from “Please, kids, try not to make a mess,” to “I don’t care if you bathe outside in glitter slime and sand, as long as it buys me an hour of time.”
