Back to School Memes for Parents Who Are Ready For Summer to End

Today we are sharing our favorite Back to School memes! Parents who are ready for summer to end, these are for you.

You count down the days until the kids get out of school for summer (yes, we have last day of school memes) and then you find yourself asking Alexa how many days until school starts back. Who is with me? You guys, back to school season is here and we are so ready for it.

As a type B who would prefer not to have a schedule, I know this house functions better when there are bedtimes and kids not circling the place 24 hours a day. We’ve done vacation, we’ve done all nighters, now let’s get our butts back into gear for the coming education year – but first enjoy these back to school memes!

Are you a teacher? We have a special collection just for you of teacher memes and teachers be like memes.

Summer is Almost Over, Kids

As I was posting this, my 9-year-old runs in here to tell me he needs more internet time (thank you, Qustodio for putting some kind of limit on his screen time!)

Anyways, he saw this and said “WAIT, are you telling people to be happy that I have to go back to school?” HA, sorry kid. I love you with all of my heart – here is some extra screen time but yes, I will be happy to have an empty house for a few hours and be able to introvert without kid chaos.
