How Parenting Through the Week Feels Day-to-Day, As Told Through Memes

As the popular parenting saying goes: the days are long, but the years are short. The same could be said about the weeks — the days can sometimes feel so very long, but the weeks end up flying by. Each day, parents start anew feeling bright-eyed and ready for whatever comes our way (or at least, we hope that’s how we wake up). As the day goes on, though, things can go in all sorts of unexpected directions which can bring everything from joy to frustration to fatigue.

For your enjoyment, we’ve mapped out a typical week of parenting moods that range from highlighting the challenges of finding time to yourself to the very real exhaustion you can feel by the end of each day.
