The World's Best & Funniest Back to School Photos

Last week a truly wonderful reader sent me this picture and told me I should run it and ask other people to send in their hilarious back to school pictures. After almost 4 years of hanging out with you guys, I pretty much always do what you tell me to.

So I now proudly present some very awesome back to school pictures:
The awesome picture that started it all.

Guess which one is the middle child?
She's like: "Soon, Mommy, SOON." 

I feel like if you told that kid to hurry up right now she'd be like: 

Angry Eyes
Right?! Moving onto this gem:
School is number 1!
This one has a story - which I love:
I have a spontaneous best EVER pix. My son has autism and this was his first day of 3rd grade and public School. He was trying to be silly. I'm such a great mom, I didn't see it until after the photo was taken. Sigh...I'm so awesome. He didn't know what it meant, but does now. 
Love that kid!

Another fun story:
I wanted a picture of the girls' hair and backpacks, so I asked them to turn around. The not-going-to-school 3-year-old boy rebelled, still harboring some righteous indignation because he didn't get a new ALLTHETHINGS. So his 9-year-old sister was "helping" him turn around with extreme prejudice when he decided the best solution was to Vogue.

He's like the Pointer Sisters. He's so excited. And he just can't hide it.
Seriously?! How is this a good idea?!
Here's the backstory on this note (that is clearly designed to make parents heave cry):

So my son's kindergarten teacher tried to slay all mothers the first day of school. I overheard her say to a dad: "Well, it may be better that her mom didn't read this now". Lol this was the bookmark she made the parents.
To this teacher I say, "WHAT THE HELL LADY?!" I cried and I don't even have a kid in your class.

Now kids, I just want one nice picture. NO HAMMING IT UP THIS TIME. Oh for the love of Pete.

I love this whole family so much it's not even freaking funny.

And there's more from them! This is the picture they took on the last day of school:

Me love them long time. The whole fam. Also? If you need a photographer in Chicago, you can hire the mom.

  1. Umm, I cried, too. In my defense I do have five year old twins. But I must confess I am homeschooling them. So my tears are completely unjustified!

  2. I really needed the laughs this morning ... I just dropped my 4.5 year-old off at kindergarten and I'm barely keeping it together. If my daughter wasn't here I'd be full-on sobbing. Thank you so much for keeping it light! (I know the bookmark wasn't, but I could see what was coming and blew right on past it.)

  3. I work with children and I cried at the bookmark...who does this teacher think she is making grown ass women all over the world cry :P
    she sounds amazing

  4. This was just too awesome! I especially love the last two the most! Kind of like my family when we send them to their moms for the summer and then they come home for school. LOL

    Thanks for the laugh!

  5. I must be made of stone. I was all "what the hell lady?! I need school to start!" In my defense, my biggin is going into 1st grade this year, and last year I was terrified not of leaving him, but how he'd do. He's got SPD and I didn't know how he'd adjust.

    So now I have the 4 yo going on 14 starting preschool next week, and it feels like a vacation to just have 1. That being said, I may do some dancing in the parking lot after drop off next week.

  6. My first thought when I read the bookmark: Wow, all I have to do is drop my little (homeschooled)monsters at her door and she'll love them and take them in? I am all over that. ;) ~Erin K.

  7. I am a kindergarten teacher, I had parents crying at open house before we started. I pinned this, I love the poem! I will definitely use this, it is EXACTLY how I treat my little munchkins.

  8. I am so proud of my family...featured in one of the photos. But I'll never tell which one.

  9. oh. my. jeez. how much do I love the last two photos. hilarious.
