Back to school is simultaneously the most joyous and hellish of occasions for parents. On the one hand, you can finally ship your kids off to someplace else and get a little peace and quiet already. Kids refusing to listen, leaving trash all over the place, and bickering non-stop? Sorry, Teach. Your problem now. (Just kidding. Still our problem because MAMA DIDN’T RAISE YOU TO BE AN ANIMAL, YA HEAR?)
On the other hand, there’s the school supply shopping. It’s like the Hunger Games up in there, only instead of hunting each other, you’re hunting for obscure dry erase markers and every glue stick created since the dawn of time. Need I say more?
As a teacher, back to school for me is no less of an emotional roller coaster. I am excited for a brand new school year and ready to get to know the 100+ faces who will grace my classroom for the next 9.5 months (not to mention super ready to give my own spawn the boot). But I also DON’T WANNA GO PLEASE DON’T MAKE ME I LIKE SLEEP AND HAVING NO RESPONSIBILITIES AND NOT HAVING TO FORK OVER MY SALARY FOR THE SCHOOL SUPPLIES THAT DIDN’T MAKE THE CUT *SOB*.
But like it or not, another school year is on the not-so-distant horizon, and in an attempt to help you laugh through the pain, I present you with 20 of the funniest memes about heading back to school that will speak to every parent’s soul. Check them out, have a giggle, and be sure to click on the images to follow these hilarious people on social media for more.
It’s OK. It’ll all be OK. Probably.
