It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, we’re not talking about Christmas, you ding-dongs. We’re talking about back-to-school season. Duh.
For you parents and kiddos, this equates to so many #blessed moments. So without further ado, here are the top five reasons back to school season is the greatest thing since invention of Netflix, Uber and wine…
1. Two Words for you Parents: Mental Sanity
There’s something to be said about not having to worry where our children are from the hours of 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. You know, those nagging questions such as “Who can watch the kids?” or “What camp can I send them to that doesn’t require a second mortgage” or “Crazy Uncle Pete is babysitting…I hope the kids are still alive,” are thrown to the wayside. WHERE THEY BELONG.
2. New School Supplies…All the Feels
Admit it: Growing up, the back-to-school shopping for a new Trapper Keeper and Lisa Frank notebooks were the highlight of your summer. We can all agree that picking out pencils and brightly colored notebooks is pretty much a universally satisfying sensation — for both the kids and ‘rents. #Nostalgia
3. Reunited and it Feels So Good
For the children, reuniting with their chronies is the adult equivalent of daydrinking at a two-hour “work” lunch on a Tuesday. This is a darn fact.
4. New Threads, Yo!
For kids with uniforms, this means less stress for mommy or daddy. And for those of you without uniforms, well, it means you can literally wear whatever you want as long as it SFS (safe for school).
5. Putting the “Cool” in “School”
Back-to-school basically means the death of summer. And let’s face it, this summer heat has been utterly miserable. Cooler days await us all.
