21 tired parents who just want summer to be over

You're not the only one.
  • We're about halfway through summer, and while you're probably having a blast spending quality time with your kiddos ... they can be a (total) handful.

  • For a lot of parents, summer comes without a schedule. There are constant popsicle drips and sidewalk chalk stains to clean. You have to deal with sunscreen and days at the park. Oh, and the kids can get a little crazy. And maybe, just maybe, you occasionally wish summer would come to an end and they would just go back to school.

  • Sound familiar? These 21 parents know exactly where you're coming from:

  • 1. At least she's taking a nap

  • 21. But, you'll miss them once school starts

  • Don't worry. Soon, summer will be over and you'll wish you could have had time for one more slip-n-slide or day at the pool before school started. But until then, good luck!
