It appears summer break has once again come to an end. Bad news for your kids. Fantastic news for you and that stair banister you always find sticky. So open up that wallet and label those pencil cases, we’ve got some hilarious tweets from parents who can’t wait for school to start back.
You’ve waited so, so long for this day.
Back to school next week means there will be so much whining and crying in the morning. I’ll bet the kids will be tired, too.

And trust us, it shows.
It’s that point during summer where parents are starting to look how teachers looked at the end of the school year.

But you’ll be celebrating soon enough.
Back to school shopping is kinda like Christmas shopping. It’s an expensive pain in the ass but it leads to a great celebration.

So why not celebrate with a photoshoot?
Forgot to post a picture to social media of my kids on their first day of school. Do they have to repeat the year now, or what happens?

Just don’t make your enthusiasm too obvious.
Kids will not appreciate pics of you popping champagne corks after you drop them back at school

So first thing’s first, get those kids out of bed.
My kids go back to school on Monday so of course they just figured out how to sleep in.

Do a trial run the night before if necessary.
Practicing for the first day of school by muttering “we’re late,” throwing cereal on the floor & making sure every outfit is the wrong one.

And boost that immune system to the best of your abilities.

All good? Okay. It’s finally here. The first day of school.
Son: I hate school.
Me: I know, but you need to go to school to someday get a job that you’ll also hate.

A few precautions need to be taken.
PARENTS, take a photo of your child on their first day of school so you can remember which child to take home at the end of the day.

Be sure to pack a snack!
Me: *buys a year’s worth of snacks* OK kids, remember, these are for school.
Kids: *have already eaten all the snacks*

Hell, pack one for yourself.
In the fifth realm of hell right now…or as you may know it, the school parking lot on the first day. #parenting

The most important thing is punctuality.
Sorry I’m late. My kid was walking from the door to the car.

Once your kid’s at school, let the longing begin.
Everybody wants their kids to go back to school, until they’re stranded on the toilet without toilet paper and no one’s around to grab a new roll.
— The Real American Dadass (@R_A_Dadass) August 17, 2018
Don’t worry, they’ll be back home before you know it.
School started today so I’m pretty sure the new shoes I bought my kids for school are probably worn out by now.

At which point you become just another teacher.
My son is upset cos I wouldn’t help him with his homework. Like what part of “Daddy already had 13 years of that shit” doesn’t he understand. #BackToSchool
