Lex Gabrielle 6 Aug 2019

Every year when the summer is reaching its bittersweet end, parents are highly anticipating their kids going back to school. Many choose to mark the first day back with the ever-popular chalkboard sign.

Every year, the countdown begins for kids to get out of their parent's hair.

While spending time with your kids all summer can be fun, eventually, parents are wiped out and ready to give them back over to their teachers.

Sometimes, even parents get in on the fun photo sessions.

Some parents like to troll their kids with photos.

So funny!

Some parents like to post those sweet, innocent ones.

Adorable.

No matter where you live, parents are always showing off their kids online.

Posing with those signs and cheesing pretty hard!

While many parents adore the new trend, there are those who are over the "pressure" to do it.

From making your kids pose in 25 different directions to shopping around for the "perfect sign," many people are over the trend and decide to poke fun at it instead.

I mean, year after year, it does get a little old.

And, I'm sure your kids are tired of posing for the photos, too.

If it were me, I'd definitely be over it.

"Come on mom, I'm tired of being all of your Instagram feed."

Comedian and dad Simon Holland recently posted a series of tweets totally roasting the entire "back to school photo" culture.

Simon was quick to showcase how ridiculous some parents are for putting pressure on themselves for social media photos.

It's truly an emergency.

Holland showcased that it's a "emergency" if some people don't have those little chalkboards for their kids to hold for social media photos.

Thanks lady.

Moms are always trying to be extra — a computer print-out is not good enough unless there's ribbon and a frame around it.

Load Comments

People are desperate to "help."

This is actually how moms act when someone showcases that they can't "keep up" with the latest trends.

Load Comments

Not to mention, her mom doesn't blog.

Twitter | @simoncholland

Her social life TOTALLY depends on whether or not her mom is "Insta-worthy."

Load Comments

Moms are always "supportive."

Twitter | @simoncholland

Not being able to post photos of your kids in awkward positions is literally like a death in the family for some.

Load Comments

Kids know.

Twitter | @simoncholland

Kids know that social media personas are "the most important," because, you know, they learn it from mom.

Load Comments

Have no fear!

Twitter | @simoncholland

It all ended well because Simon's daughter got her first grade teacher to totally help out so she can stay "cool."

Load Comments

Clearly, Simon's tweets prove that we're all a little obsessive when it comes to looking like a "Pinterest parent".

This year, maybe we can relax on forcing our kids to take photos and let them just enjoy being, well, kids!

Load Comments

Enjoy the wonders of the first day back, but let kids be kids!

Not everyone needs to see the tender, personal moments in your family.

Load Comments

Social media sometimes makes us forget about "private life."

Maybe your kids would rather enjoy life's little moments with you.

So, moms, relax!

Enjoy the school year without all that pressure!
