Besides to giving birth, or buying and assembling an Ikea dresser, the first day of school is pretty much the most exhausting experience a human being goes through.

It’s a big deal! Your whole daily routine is disrupted. You have to go to a weird building and learn strange concepts like “math.” You’re forced to interact with people you wouldn’t otherwise be caught dead with. I definitely would not trade places with any kid.

In recent years, parents have updated the traditional “first day of school” photo by taking a second photo of their child upon returning home from school. The contrast is clear–and hilarious.

The whole thing really does a number on you.
