Parents, can you explain something to me?
What exactly is going on in drop-off zones where you deposit your kids at school?
It seems like these things are just like the Wild West!
While you think of how to answer that question, enjoy these tweets from parents who are really dealing with it…
1. You don’t know me!
Not at all!
If you think I won’t wear an oversized hoodie instead of a bra for school drop off, I’d like to thank you for your misplaced faith in me.

2. Sorry about that…
Gotta do what you gotta do…
My apologies to the 18 cars behind us at the school drop off line, but my six-year-old needed to finish telling his story.

3. Hell yeah!
A timeless classic!
Remind your kids they have the cool mom by blasting ‘Electric Avenue’ at school drop-off without forgetting a single lyric.

4. He’s in big trouble.
Wouldn’t want to be in his shoes right now…
My husband is helping me relax by taking the kids to school this morning. We went over the drop off procedure 37 times and he just left without one of the kids.

5. Look in the mirror.
If you can’t point to the hot mess at school drop off, it might be you.

6. That teacher is really in for it today.
Good luck to you!
Saw a kid at school drop off wearing one of those huge inflatable dinosaur costumes. Best wishes to their teacher.

7. This isn’t going well…
Just take a deep breath…
There’s no room in my heart for hate. The Elementary School parking lot and everyone in it took that space long ago.

8. Good idea!
I’m sure you’re not the only one.
Every day is “Pajama Day” for me at my kids’ school drop off.

9. Ahhh, now I get it.
Should have known!
Thought it was weird that we weren’t running late, then at preschool drop-off I realized my kid wasn’t wearing shoes. Mystery solved.

10. It’s gonna be a while.
Just sit back and relax…
Commute to school – 3 minutes
Wait in the drop off line – 3-4 business days.

11. You’re not fooling anyone.
Get over it!
I can’t believe I have to say this but there’s no prize for being first in the kids school drop off line. You don’t need to get there 45 mins earlier to show everyone how awesome a parent you are. Let someone else be first, like I don’t know, a Dad who’s 12 mins late everyday.
