Unfortunately, going on vacation with kids doesn't always work out the way we planned. When they're little, it's actually a lot of work just getting them packed and out of the house, let alone keeping an eye on them once we reach the destination. And when they're older, well... sharing a hotel room with their parents isn't always their idea of fun.
One dad on TikTok, @matt_merrill, has nailed this feeling in a hilarious video. Sharing a clip of himself in a boat with two very cranky boys, his short video tells us all we need to know about how the trip is going... and yes, we can relate all too well.
"I'll get my money back but I'll never be 35 taking my kids on vacation getting to listen to them b!tch and whine at all the fun stuff I got planned for them to do," Dad joked in the video.
Well, that pretty much sums it up perfectly, doesn't it?
He's definitely not the only one who feels this way — not by a long shot, according to the comments on the video.
"You’re not making memories if no one is miserable!" one fellow parent wrote.
"Then the one time you go with spouse and not kids they complain for years about how you never take them anywhere," another added.
One day, the kids might whine a little less on vacation... but that would take all the fun out of it, huh?
