Winter is over and spring is finally here. *Points hands to the sky and rejoices* While the idea of not being cooped up inside has many excited to watch their kids hit singles, score goals, or, let’s face it, run in the wrong direction because wheeeeeee, the prospect of spring sports and all the obligations that come with them, isn’t sitting well with a lot of sports parents. And many are taking to Twitter to gripe about the headaches of being a sports parent. Some parents bemoaned expensive equipment and the loss of scheduling anything on the weekends, while others griped about scraped knees, coaching obligations, and the laundry, my god, the laundry that they’ll have to deal with. We feel them. We really do. Here, then, are some of the funniest #overit posts from parents who are already sick of their kids spring sports.
Let's get overly excited & sign our kids up for sports then hope & pray for rain so they will cancel every practice and game for the season.

Kids talk about how excited they are for sports until 7:30 AM on Saturday and you are dragging their ass out of bed and into soccer cleats.

The best part of peewee sports is having to remember all the kids' and parents' names.
Maybe I mixed up the best part with the worst part.

I have one kid who wants me to be loud and cheer, and one kid who wants silence. #sportsparent

There should be a service where you can rent parents to go see your kids play sports in your place.
