Gloves, hats, mitts, boots, snow pants, jackets and the dreaded snow day. These are just a few of the hardships people who parent in cold climates have to endure.
Here are the funniest tweets about winters…with children.
If you have kids in school, winter can be especially frustrating.
The weather is finally cold enough to require gloves & hats, because frantically searching for the lost shoe before school was just too easy.

So try to look at every snow day as a blessing.
A snow day on a Monday is the ultimate parental kick in the crotch.

Sure, you could use the weather as an excuse to be lazy inside.
Snow day, from the Latin meaning, to drink all the booze and eat all the foods.

But that will quickly try your patience.
Hour 2 of this snow day and I’m prepared to go full-on Iditarod to get my kids to school tomorrow if necessary.

So take the young’ns outside and make the most of it!
20 minutes getting them ready.
5 minutes outside.
20 minutes getting them back inside.
15 minutes hot chocolate.
1 hour down, 8 to go.

First, you gonna wanna bundle them up.
Make your child angry today by trying to protect them from hypothermia.

Be sure to invest in a nice coat they’ll hate.
It’s so cold, my kids are willingly wearing their coats outside.

Like, HATE hate.
Remind your kids to take a coat to school so the inside of their backpacks can be toasty warm all day while they freeze to death at recess.

Don’t forget the mittens. They will.
Winter budget when you have young kids:
$100 – snowsuit
$65 – boots
$40 – hats & scarves
$25 – thermal leggings
$1,579,325,753 – mittens

Ready to head out?
My 1 year old is insisting to put on her own snow-pants so we should be ready to go outside in about July.

Perfect! Time to build a snowman. Round up an old scarf, a carrot, and okay they’re already bored.

Me: Ok, who wants to put the arms in?
Kids: *went inside 2 hours ago to play video games*

“Look, a giant snowball!” is kid code for “We got bored halfway through our snowman.”

Plenty to do inside.
Me: [pulls photo from wallet]
Stranger: Adorable. Are these your kids making snow angels?
Me: No. They’re playing in flour they spilled.
