It finally happened. After weeks of shopping and decorating and cooking and wrapping, Christmas came and went, leaving only a trail of new toys in its wake -- and parents on Twitter grappling with the aftermath. Kristen Chase summed up the phenomenon of doting nanas and papas gifting toys that kids like and parents hate, tweeting: "'Oh look, no 'off' button and it takes 400 watch batteries, PERFECT!' -All Grandparents everywhere." And Tanis Miller warned of the dangers of asking kids to name their favorite presents, explaining, "You'll taste the bitterness of defeat when you realize it wasn't a gift you bought." Oof.
Of course, with the kids home from school (surrounded by treats aplenty), moms and dads had much to say on Twitter about all aspects of parenting. From musings on the micro-management of art projects to how many gadgets are required to get through one flight, here are this week's most entertaining parenting tweets.
