25 Parents Whose "Back To School" Tweets Made Me Laugh So Hard, My Sinuses Hurt

"My kids have been back in school for seven days, and I've already received 38 reminders to order yearbooks."

It's "back to school" season again, and parents on Twitter are getting all the way real about the good, the bad, and the hilariously frustrating:


My 6-year-old's teacher asked parents to fill out a worksheet so she could get to know our kids. Hopefully this helps.

My 5-year-old as I dropped her off at school, "don't worry, I won't say the F-words." Somehow that felt kinda comforting.

School emails be like: Welcome to X Elementary! Your supply lists include everything you've already bought but in a different color. Our drop-off time is 8:24. Students arriving at 8:26 will be late. The PTA will need a donation equal to your mortgage. Welcome back!

So excited for my kids to return to school so I can spend my free time reading the 50 emails their school sends each day

The TV just said “everyone is looking forward to the start of the school year” and under her breath my daughter said “that’s a big load of bullshit”

We thought our son was excited for us to attend Back-to-School night so we could meet his teacher…Turns out, his actual excitement was bc he couldn’t wait to show us the bathroom stall he had carefully chosen…“to do all the pooping in.”

Me to 12yo: We have to go to Staples to get your school supplies 9yo: Can I come? Me: We already got your supplies, why do you need to come? 9yo: First of all, Staples smells AMAZING

My son had HS freshman orientation today. My husband thought it would be a good idea to remind me that he and I met when we were HS sophomores. I am not okay.

I was having a good day until my son opened up his backpack & handed me a fundraiser envelope.

12-year-old: School starts tomorrow. Can we do nothing today? Me: You did nothing all summer. 12: I know. It was great.

I’m conflicted by the relief I feel dropping my kids back at school after summer break and the annoyance of having to put on pants before 10am.

Never judge someone’s dietary choices, I for example was about to eat an apple when my dog stepped on my kid’s backpack, popping open a bag of chips which I then had to eat lest they went bad

My 6-year-old said his stomach was hurting on the 2nd day of school, which set a new family record.

I just emailed my kid’s school 27 times in a row and forgot the attachment on half of them and resent again just to make a damn point.

One of my kids went back to school “shopping” in our leftover supplies from last year; my other kid gave me a three page itemized list of the supplies she wants me to buy. And I’m not supposed to have a favorite?

Teachers ask for emergency contact info they already have like jobs asking you to re-enter everything from the résumé you just attached.

Hope you've already had the back to school conversation with your kids? You know the one where you threaten them to not volunteer you for stuff before asking you first?

Twitter: @jacanamommy


All I'm saying is that the 247 back to school emails that the school sent could have been 1 email

Almost a year into spanish immersion preschool and my daughter still thinks the response to gracias is “vanilla!"

Twitter: @EmSlyce


Me, all summer: I can't wait for the kids to go back to school. Me, ten minutes after they leave for school: I kind of miss the kids.
