At TODAY Parents, we love seeing moms and dads post hilarious-but-true thoughts about parenthood on social media.
This week it's Funniest Parents: Coronavirus Edition. Schools are closed, parents have unwillingly become teachers and everyone is social distancing. We love seeing funny moms and dads spill about what life is really like when you're trapped inside with kids...and trying to teach them math.
So throw away your color-coded schedules and grab a glass of wine, because it's about to get real.

You know, I can handle a quarantine. I can handle rationing food. I can even handle having to relearn elementary math. But did this really have to be the week that my 4 year old learned to tell knock knock jokes?— Rhyming Mama (@sarabellab123) March 18, 2020

After this virus is under control, can we make this option a permanent thing?
