18 Funny Tweets About How Spring Break With Kids Is The Opposite Of Relaxing


Remember when spring break meant something really wild & fun? You know, the sun-soaked, alcohol-infused, bikini-wearing festivals of debauchery? Me neither, unless it was watching MTV from my couch. Spring break with kids certainly can get wild.

Just in a different sort of way. 


Regardless of how you used to “enjoy” your spring break, it’s fair to say that spring break with kids isn’t nearly as relaxing or easy as it used to be prior to becoming a parent.

For most schools, spring break falls at that awkward time of year when the weather’s still not decent enough to do anything fun, & the wallet’s still recovering from the holidays. Oh, sure, it seems like a welcome break from the weekly school routine grind, but the reality is: everyone’s home getting on each other’s nerves all.day.long.

The parents of Twitter feel your pain, & are here to share their own spring break woes!


  1. Remember the spring breaks of your youth? It’s almost like that with kids… but not really.

2. No, seriously. MTV made us think spring break was fun. MTV lied.

3. The break seems to just pop up on the school calendar out of nowhere.

4. Sure, you try to prepare for your kids to be home all week…

5. And by “prepare”, we mean: SURVIVE. By any means necessary.

6. But the reality of the kids being off all week involves a lot more mess. And chaos.

7. And breakage. Everything.Is.Broken.

8. How about the constant kid noise? So much noise, all day long.

9. Of course they want to talk to you- about Minecraft, YouTube unboxings, Roblox, & LEGOS.

10. With everyone home, there’s no break. Ever.

11. And that’s all on Day 1! By Day 2….

12. By Day 3, you’re already over it.  And so are the kids.

13. You try to find quiet moments to be alone to… decompress. Or sob. Whatever.

14. Some ambitious folks take their kids on a spring break trip, but they’ll learn. Oh, they’ll LEARN.

15. But most of us like to set the spring break bar nice & low.

16. (Or lower.)

17. But at long last, the end of spring break is in sight- not without tripping at the finish line, of course…

18. Which is why we parents are usually pretty happy once it’s finally over!

Hope you get a “break” while you’re kids are off on Spring Break, parents!
