It’s finally time to bid adieu to the school year. At least, for some of us. Many are already celebrating the last day of school while others are still barely holding on for a few more weeks. And if you head over to Twitter, you’ll find a barrage of posts from disgruntled teens whining about the extra work their teachers are assigning, or how they haven’t gotten their grades yet. One thing’s for sure though: it’s not just kids that are D-O-N-E. And these end of school year tweets prove that the struggle is real for all of us.
Like this mom who just wants to go back to the good ol’ days:
Dropping my daughter off for her last day of middle school makes me wanna go to Gymboree, buy her an outfit and put her hair in pigtails.

Or this parent who has had it with her son’s preferred way of celebrating the end of the year:
Son is playing songs from High School Musical because it's his last day of school. Just shoot me now.

And this mom who already knows how it’s gonna go down:
Tomorrow is my kids last day of school !!! Lord they Finn run me crazy this summer 😭🙄

But this parent puts it even better:
Parents preparing for summer like:

I totally feel this and mine is just in preschool (but sadly…happily? has NO summer break):
Kids: How many more days left until summer?
Me: *literally all I care about* I only have to pack your lunch 6 more times.

This too (because drop off can be a total pain in the butt sometimes):
This poor mom is feeling all the guilt about losing her kid’s graduation present:
My poor kid. I bought him a "Last Day of School" gift a few weeks ago & hid it but now can't find it in anywhere. Sorry son. Mom is a goober

And this mom is just basically ready to call it quits, envying all those whose kids are finally done:
I see so many parents taking pictures of their kids because it's the last day of school…. meanwhile, my kid has 2 weeks left. 🙄🙄🙄

This mom’s kids already started vacation and she, like many of us, already obviously needs one herself:
Otherwise known as hell (and also: does anyone ever play Hot Cross Buns and/or the recorder after elementary school):
Normal kids sleep in the first day of summer vacation. Mine wake us up at 6:30 playing Hot Cross Buns on the recorder.

When you’re glad your kid is finally excited about something:
This dad knows this is anything but good news:
Yesterday was the last day of school and my kids are already done with all of the activities planned for them to do at home this summer.
— Simon Holland (@simoncholland) May 26, 2017
This mom has the right idea of what to do when her kids start to overstay their welcome:
I'm sending my kids to a free summer camp program called GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY.
— Sara Says Stop (@PetrickSara) May 24, 2017
No…no, wait. THIS mom has the right idea:
Actually, that mom is definitely tied with this mom for being most awesome and understanding that the end of the year isn’t just hard on her or the kiddos:
My kid's class is having a last day of school brunch. Do you think I can send OJ & champagne so his teacher can have mimosas? #shedeservesit

This parent is just totally done with their kids, too. I can understand why:
Think I am buying boxing gloves for the kids. I am sick of this bickering. It is not even summer vacation yet
