While the holidays are equal parts stressful and fun no matter who you are, once you become a mom there’s an added element of something truly special that can only be expressed via the wonderful world of Twitter. Here are the funniest tweets from parents we found about the holiday season!
Both my kids have runny noses, so it looks like the only thing I’ll be getting for Hanukkah is sick.

And let’s be honest, that was not on our list of things to get during the holidays.
FUCK MY KIDS JUST SAW CHRISTMAS PRESENTS IN THE CLOSET I REPEAT FUCK

Quick, AVERT THEIR EYES. AVERT THEM!
Kid is chasing a cat around, one hand holding a piece of wrapping paper and the other a bow, laughing maniacally. #Christmaswithkids

This is equal parts horrifying and hilarious.
A present that only needs 3 pieces of tape to wrap suddenly takes 30 (only half of which actually make it on the box). #ChristmasWithKids

The pain and frustration is too real!
Taking my kids to see Santa tomorrow because I think it’s important to provide them with seminal experiences that scare them shitless.

A question as old as time: does a mall santa ever get less creepy?!
All I want for Christmas is time without my children
— Anna Lane (@theannalane) November 30, 2015
Can’t wait to spend all day tomorrow cooking a meal my kids won’t eat.

AIN’T THAT THE TRUTH.
My basement looks like a rainbow took a crap. #ChristmasWithKids

And it’s obviously known that rainbows take the biggest of craps.
Oh fuck. At my kids Christmas concert and some kid just puked all over another kid. — EastCountyDave (@EastCountyDave) December 4, 2015
Well, spent over $300 on michael already for christmas. Fuck. The kids lucky I love him. — Tiffany Amber (@tblondeygirl) December 3, 2015
Sigh. Can someone spend $300 on us please?!
This year I’m thankful for wine and childcare.

Really, though! YES!
I miss the days when my kids were so young I could tell them that we had invisible Christmas tree.

Those were the days!
I thought I was having a bad morning & then I remembered some people have kids who like the Elf on the Shelf.

Elf on the Shelf aka bane of our existence.
“He sees you when you’re sleeping” And this is when my son became terrified of Santa. — Tired Working Mom (@WorkingMom86) November 29, 2015
