After a long day of slaving over a stove and nearly burning the bird, parents look forward to finally getting a chance to sit down and enjoy the fruits of their Thanksgiving labor.
Unfortunately, as most parents have learned by now, dealing with children on Thanksgiving could leave anyone feeling a little less than thankful. These moms and dads took to Twitter to vent their frustrations, and if you have kiddos, I have a sneaking suspicion you’ll identify with what they have to say.

I love Thanksgiving. Can't wait to slave for hours over a meal my kids will rudely reject in front of relatives who are judging my parenting

2. Crushed it.
Lower your expectations for a relaxing Thanksgiving.
Yes. Right there.

3. “Over the river and through the woods for a feast my kids won’t enjoy.”
