    "What wine pairs well with back to school supply shopping?"

    1. By the end of the summer you are ready for it to be OVER:

    It's that point during summer where parents are starting to look how teachers looked at the end of the school year.

    2. Like, REALLY ready:

    My kids don't seem to be as excited as me for the "Back to School Countdown" calendar I created.

    3. But getting your kids onboard is a challenge:

    Me(motivational voice):Ok guys, who's ready to go back to school?! *Everyone starts crying* Well that didn't go well at all. #BackToSchool

    4. You WILL face resistance:

    Me: School starts in a few weeks. 6-year-old: Tell them I'm busy. Damn. I didn't know that was an option.

    5. And you'll have to pretend you're not as excited as you are:

    "I'm so sad, buddy," I tell my son after he asks how I feel about him going back to school in 2 days. My tone is convincing but the big smile on my face kinda gives it away.

    6. Or, er, maybe you won't:

    Son: Everyone in New Jersey is sad. Husband: Why? Son: Because today's the last day of summer break. Me: [from next room] NOT EVERYONE, KID.

    7. Of course, there's plenty of annoying stuff you need to do to get your kid ready β€” like BTS shopping:

    8. Which makes your bank account cry:

    Back to School shopping, a.k.a: "How can you have outgrown EVERYTHING you wore last year? You mean I have to buy you a whole new wardrobe??"

    9. Your kids will want to buy ridiculous things:

    Back to school shopping. I sit outside the changing room like Simon Cowell. Sorry, it’s a no from me.

    10. Then there's shopping for school supplies, which can get ugly:

    Just caught someone trying to steal my kid's school supplies out of our cart at Target. Lady don't even think of taking my $2 plastic ruler.

    11. Ditto for school snack shopping:

    Me: *buys a year's worth of snacks* OK kids, remember, these are for school. Kids: *have already eaten all the snacks*

    12. Not all the shopping is bad, though, LOL:

    You know it's Back to School time when moms alone at Target are high-fiving when they pass each other in the aisles.

    13. Now about the first day β€” you might want to practice for it:

    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.

    14. Because it will be a workout:

    Resistance training But me dragging my kids into school.

    15. And you'll need to be prepared:

    We have an emergency! Tomorrow is the first day of school and we don't have a little chalkboard for our kids to hold for the FB photos.

    18. Because not every parents feels like you do:

    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.
