It’s time to rejoice, parents! The kids are back in school, and you’re (somewhat) free…at least until next summer rolls around.
There’s no doubt about it: these parents are thrilled that their little ones are back where they belong for the next 9 months.
Enjoy the hilarity.
1. We’re back, baby!
You know it's Back to School time when moms alone at Target are high-fiving when they pass each other in the aisles.

2. What is that, Mommy?
My kids don't seem to be as excited as me for the "Back to School Countdown" calendar I created.

3. Sounds like a blast.
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.

4. My time is now.
I may shed some sentimental tears, but they will be into a champagne glass and pedicure tub. #firstdayofschool

5. No one even saw it…
42 years ago my parents took a picture of me going to kindergarten. It didn't get any likes or comments.

6. They’re all yours.
Parenting goals: Keep children alive until they're old enough to be handed over to the public school system.

7. Not gonna make it today.
My 7-year-old had a substitute on the first day of school.
Teacher burnout started early this year.

8. You get sucked in.
I had 5 minutes to run into Target for a last minute school item and still managed to spend $68.

9. Oh, you were serious?
Sorry I gave you a high five when you said your kids went back to school today…I thought you were fake-crying to be funny. My fault.

10. Honey, let me break the news to you…
My wife was on the second page of the lunch note to our kindergartner when I reminded her she couldn't really read.

11. I’ll see you in 9 hours.
The only thing that brings more joy than the laughter of a child is when the school bus comes to take them away.

12. Looking a little rough.
The only bags I have packed for school are the ones under my eyes #backtoschool

13. Absolute silence.
YOU GUYS!!! Know what I hear at my house? NOTHING. I HEAR NOTHING. #backtoschool

14. Great idea, son.
Apologies to all parents that heard me swear today in the school yard on the first day of school but my 7 year old prick of a son decided that a Tuba was the most convenient instrument to bring home every Tuesday in my wife’s Citroen C1.

15. Not gonna happen in this house.
Shout out to all the kids whose parents don't have their shit together enough to have cutesy letter boards on the first day of school.
