Ahh, the holidays with kids. So much fun, so much magic–so much stress! As these next few weeks fly by, we’re all just trying to hold it together and make the most of this holiday season. Sometimes it’s full of candy canes and reindeer, and other times it’s riddled with scotch tape and necessary coffee breaks. So, on the days we have to threaten to call Santa nearly 300 times, we are always grateful for the funny parents who are keeping it real on Twitter. Need a laugh with your eggnog? These moms and dads have you covered.
