Vacation has ended and the school year has begun, which means schedules are ramping back up to a point that’s at least slightly less manageable than the lazy, hazy days of summer. Packing up daily lunches, driving kids to and from numerous activities, random dress-up days at schools, doctors’ appointments and so much more: it’s no wonder everyone looks a bit shell-shocked in the first few weeks of September. The only cure? Back-to-school memes!
To help alleviate the stress, we rounded up some of our favorite recent back-to-school memes about getting kids and adults alike ready for fall.
The first day/week of school can really knock it out of you.
There’s no tired quite like it.
Speaking of which, we don’t know all the details about what happens the first day of school but it looks rough.
We love a good before-and-after!
When kids figure out that school is a long-term thing.
To be fair, he’s got a point…
Warning: It’s highly possible you’ll have flashbacks to the 100+ forms you had to fill out before school even started.
Is that all?
Kids of a certain age bring home approximately one million pieces of artwork per school year. It’s inevitable, you have to throw some away. It’s also inevitable that their sixth sense will tell them you did just that.
The, uh, wind… blew it… directly into the trash can. Somehow.
Raise your hand if you’ve ever dropped your kids off in pajamas, completely unprepared to chat with someone (anyone)?
To “quote” Rihanna….
Just remember, school can be tough for everyone involved.
What school did that kid go to? Asking for a friend. (Me.)

When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
Mamas Uncut is the place for moms online. We cover the latest news around motherhood and parenting, plus entertainment news as well – all with a mom-focused twist. Looking for parenting advice?
