Back-to-school season is upon us and many kids have started or are getting ready to start school. Here's a little chuckle at how some of the parents have been handling it:
The kids are asking for fun shaped sandwiches for their back-to-school lunches and I’m so flattered they’ve mistaken me for the kind of mother who would do that

My kid came home, poured some skittles into a wine glass, and flung himself onto the couch, so I guess he had a rough day

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?

Me: Hurry up or you'll be late for school.7-year-old: Why would that make me go faster?

I asked my son what time he wanted me to wake him up on the 1st day of school: "6:30, so I have enough time to shower & cry."

In my opinion, parents should get a statutory extra 2 days off when the kids go back to school so they can have a haircut, hoover the car, go to the gym and sit peacefully for FIVE DAMN MINUTES. We could call it 'feeling like a real human again leave' or 'FLARHAL'.

Weird how the first day of school also coincides with the first day anybody has ever driven a car.
