It’s that time of year again and the holidays are officially upon us. Parents know all too well how crazy the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season is. No matter how hard you try to prepare, something is bound to come up.
While there is no rest for Santa’s little helpers until December 26th, these parents use laughter to cope. These hilarious tweets illustrate how the holiday season can be an uphill battle you’re destined to lose.
Good luck to us all. We’re going to need it.

8. Can we just repackage toys so they think it’s new?
My son wants two $50 Lego sets for Christmas so that he can make them & then 2 days later, throw the pieces into his giant barrel of Legos.

Well that’s news to me. Maybe the chubby dude can clue me in a little earlier.
