If you’re anything like me, you start counting down the days to winter break in early October. You can’t wait for those two glorious weeks when you won’t have to set a morning alarm, pack lunches, or get in the never-ending school car line. You imagine your kids waking up late, pouring themselves a bowl of cereal, and then playing quietly with their new toys until you rise from your 10 uninterrupted hours of sleep. In your mind, you see yourself wearing the cutest winter outfits – adorable buffalo plaid tops paired with skinny jeans and booties, with perfectly coiffed locks to match. You just know that it’s going to be perfect…
…and then, just two days in, you remember what winter break is really like.
Your littlest kid still wakes up at dawn demanding a warm breakfast. Your older kids sleep in but spend their waking hours fighting over whose turn it is on the single-player PS4 game. Your oldest is home from college, except he’s actually never home.
That adorable Pinterest-inspired outfit makes you look more like Paul Bunyan’s frumpy sister than the stylish hipster-chic mom you are on the inside. But does it really matter what you wear when you can’t step foot outside of your house without a knee-length parka? And then there’s your hair. Your dry-ended, windblown, greasy-rooted, staticky hat-hair. What was the point of pulling out the curling iron?
You finally decide that all-day pajamas, bottomless cups of coffee, and Netflix marathons are the only things that can keep you sane until the kids go back to school – and you are not alone. Check out how the internet’s funniest parents feel about winter break.
