Top Tweets of the Week: Aug. 18-24
We’re in the home stretch, folks! Some parents have already sent their kids back to school; New York public schools open their classrooms for the first day next week Sept. 4. To prepare, parents are relishing leisurely breakfasts, marking their calendars with upcoming school functions, and pointing out all of the lies you’ll hear from the other school moms at the beginning of the year (thanks, @HousewifeofHell!).
Lies the other moms will tell you: 1. My kids don’t like tv/bad things. 2. PTA is SUPER fun! 3. I am SUPER involved! 4. This is a cute age.

Feels so weird to be entering all school holidays/early dismissals into calendar, all the way up to NEXT June. Is this being an adult?

That is being a very prepared, responsible adult.
I actually think Times Square would be less chaotic if children took over.
There’s a reason a yawn looks like a scream. And that reason is children.

Are screams contagious, too?
Fortunately this last week of August freedom is a long one, with the first day of September falling on Labor Day.
