Look: We’ve all had those days, when everything feels just, well, kinda terrible, often for no big reason at all. Your coffee spilled on your new white pants and you locked your keys in the house again, and everyone is running late and — oops — you forgot your kiddo’s lunch for camp. It’s just par the course of adulthood: Not every day is going to be sunshine and rainbows, as much as we may hope. While the bad days are expected and unavoidable, it doesn’t make them any easier when you’re in the thick of tantrums and hunger pangs, and a zillion other things you have to check off the list.
All I have for you is utmost sympathy as a fellow parent and these 12 TikTok videos. When I’m struggling, I’ll set a timer for five minutes, and let myself zone out with some funny videos (sometimes while eating a frozen Hershey’s Kiss or two). So if you’re like me and need some time to yourself, lock that door and reset for a bit. You’re doing a great job! Tomorrow will be better.
