This Mom’s First Day of School Photo Is Pretty Legit

By  | 

Ahhh, back to school season. Some parents are sad about the end of summer, while others…are decidedly not. As our Facebook feeds slowly fill with dozens of first day photos, we can all hope that some pictures will be a little more creative. The world needs more moms like Jena Willingham and her hilarious first day of school photo.

Willingham, a mother from Alabama, sent her kids back to school on Monday. With her youngest starting kindergarten, she finally reached that magical day when all three of her children were in school! So jealous. Willingham told Fox5 in Atlanta that her kids had been arguing all summer. “I’ve been telling them that on the first day of school I’m having a pool day alone since it’s the first time in 11 years I won’t have a baby at home.”

The hilarious mom made good on her promise, much to her children’s obvious dismay and the best first day of school photo.

While Willingham floats in the pool, drink in hand, her children glared at her from the edge of the pool.

“Happy first day of school everyone!” she captioned the photo.

The image was a hit on Facebook, racking up over 17,000 shares.

Judging by the comments on the photo from Willingham’s friends, this isn’t entirely unexpected behavior.

“Leave it to you to have a very different take on the first day of school. Lol” wrote one friend. “Best post you’ve had yet!” said another.

In fact, all of the comments on Willingham’s photo are positive, which I don’t think I have ever seen on the Internet.

I need to be friends with this mom.
