Distance learning is one of those things no one asked for, but everyone is getting it these days anyway. Like socks for Father’s Day, or a gift certificate for a pedicure somewhere that’s not your place, if you’re a woman.
18. A truer GIF has never been shared.
Screaming is accurate, too.
17. We hear what we hear.
It’s probably not what the teacher said.
16. I didn’t know we had to dress for school, too.
I haven’t dressed for anything in months.
15. We were hoping to keep that a secret for awhile longer.
Not forever. But longer.
14. I have never felt so old.
Good thing I’m Gen X, and therefore do not care.
13. Precious, aren’t they?
I wish I could tell people to mute themselves in real life.
You haven't lived until you've heard a group of 1st graders shouting "mute yourself" and "i can't hear you, unmute yourself"

12. Imagine feeling this so hard you wrote it on your car.
I mean, maybe you don’t have to imagine.
11. It had to be someone.
Thanks for taking the hit.
I’m the mom of the kid who said fuck by accident during the class zoom meeting today

10. Only one kid is allowed to freak out at once.
I’m sorry, that’s just the rule.
9. Spoiler alert: they’re never leaving.
The “breaks” aren’t for you.
8. Probably the best you could hope for, honestly.
At least it doesn’t include profanity.
What do you get when you stick three kids and two adults with full time jobs in a house 24 hours a day for 6 months and then add in zoom school? A toddler who walks around all day shouting “Oh Dear God!”, apparently.

7. We had fun though, right?
6. Just mind your business, full stop.
It’s the only way to go.
5. Every dang time.
Why are they like this?
4. Who knocks on the door?
That shouldn’t be allowed currently.
3. Is that all?
Because it feels like at least double.
Downloaded 87,642 new apps just to communicate with my kids’ school.

2. Wait some people are sleeping?
How are they making that happen?
1. Sometimes you have to butt in.
There’s just no other option.
*5 yo on her kindergarten Zoom class*
Teacher: "So what do you do before joining our Zoom class?"
5yo: "My mommy hits me and says 'do good!"
Me, no make-up, bagel crumbs on my face, unexpectedly joining the Zoom class: "SHE MEANS I HIGH FIVE HER HAND!!!"

How is distance learning going for you?
If you can tell us without weeping into your wine glass, please do!
