We know it doesn’t mean the same thing when you’re a parent. If you’re up at 420 am, you’re probably comforting a crying baby or pissed that your preschooler is on a crazy sleep schedule. When 420 pm rolls around, you’re at work, driving carpool, watching sports practice, or shopping for dinner. These times are not exactly conducive to parental relaxation.
And, while we doubt you’ve spent the day languishing in the grass like you used to in college (can ANYONE find a babysitter on 420?), we do hope you take some time to enjoy the highest holiday and treat yourself to some fine cannabis. For the West Coast Splimm contingent, that means Pips Donuts with the kid, then splitting the day so one of us can hang out at Quarter World and one can go to a guided meditation. Bet you can’t guess who’s who!
Don’t be jealous of your child-free friends’ posts about epic sessions, awesome music performances, hilarious comedians, and cool parties, Splimmers! Combat FOMO; tell us how you spent your #Parents420!
