Sometimes it feels like the only thing that could be worse than the sudden unexpected close to the school year last March is the complete and utter shitshow we’re walking into with the school’s reopening this fall.

Parents were hit particularly hard with the pandemic, however, nothing comes close to the agonizing choices that they’re faced with when it comes to sending them back. Ultimately all choices suck, and with the amount of judgement and shame going around, a shitty situation gets even shittier. At the end of the day, every family is doing their best given their own unique circumstances- nobody out there deserves anything other than a stiff drink and a hug.

Although we thought we’d be happy to see the schools re-open, it’s like a Pandora’s Box of anxious fuckery. A true damned if you do and damned if you don’t scenario. And it feels like everyone loses.

So whether you choose to send them back or not (or even a hybrid of the two) know this- you’re doing what’s best for your family in an impossible situation and we salute you. Same goes for all the educators and child care workers out there.

10. Terrifying, really.

11. Honestly, we’re all not Ok. Not one single one of us…

12. Because things are fucked. MEGA fucked.

13. We’ve begun fantasizing about drop off.

14. But as far as confidence goes… I think it’s safe to say we have none.

In short- Although it may be a relief, there is nothing “happy” about this back to school.

Let’s raise our glasses to the parents just trying to do their best and get through the gut-wrenching agony of it all. Though our circumstances are very different, we’re all living this shit together.
