My best friend has a son who’s in eighth grade and he sometimes calls me from the school drop-off and pick-up zone while he waits for his kid to come out of school and he tells me how it’s absolute CHAOS.
And next time I visit him I’m gonna have to accompany him on one of these missions to see it for myself.
But in the meantime, I’ll have to enjoy these tweets from parents.
Take a look!
1. Two different people.
We all take on different roles in life…
School drop off me and school pick up me are not the same person

2. That didn’t go as planned.
Backfired on you!
I waited so long to embarrass my 6th grader at school drop off and today she replied, “I love you too, Momma!” and then KISSES ME in front of all of her friends! Like, omg, I can’t even!

3. Turns you into a monster.
Just let it all out!
I cannot be held responsible for the things I say in the carpool drop off.

4. Might as well just stay there.
What’s the point in going home?
Today is the first day of school for my kids. They only go for 2 hrs. I get to drop them off, go home to use the bathroom and then go back to pick them up.

5. Great kid!
He’s his own person.
[school drop off]
Me: Have a good day.
6-year-old: You can’t make me.

6. Hold it!
I’m in pain just reading this.
I’m just a mom,
waiting in the carline,
hoping I don’t pee my pants.

7. One or the other.
It is what it is.
Sometimes I’m up in time to make scrambled eggs for the dogs and other times we’re rolling through the drop off line with bowls of lap cereal, and unfortunately for my family there is no in between.

8. You’re already drinking, aren’t you?
Do what you gotta do…
Reading messages from a friend asking how drop off on the first day of school went hits different when you’re reading them in the wine aisle.

9. Uh oh…
This could get ugly.
3 invited everyone at school drop off to his birthday party on Sunday.
It is not his birthday.
There is no party.

10. We’ll see about that.
Patience is now gone.
Me: nothing can possibly test your patience more than being stuck at home with kids for 6 months
Leaving the house with kids for 8am school drop off: HAHAHAHAHAHAH

11. Good for you!
You’re one of us now.
I thought I’d be a sobbing mess after school drop-off but turns out after 18 months of hell I’m completely numb to emotion
