Bad parent or funny parent?

 Someone that I know posted this on FB this evening.  Her child is now on summer break.  What do you think this post says about the parent?

I've now been stripped of the joy that is the 17 minutes of alone time I used to get on my morning and evening commute. Instead it is replaced by the joy of listening to my son re-tell the objectives and rules of the new game he learned at YMCA camp.

That they have a sense of humor? I don't know, it struck me as funny.

I think it's funny (and honest).

I agree with the others.  There are things i will miss once school is out as well about my quiet time.

It's just not something I'd post on FB. If I felt that way, I'd keep it to myself or post here, where I'm anonymous. :-)

It's meant to be funny.

But despite the humor in it, as a mom that works full time, I can fully relate. Yesterday between 7 am to 9 pm, my only downtime was in the car and during my lunch. Literally.
