Let’s just admit it: back to school time is basically a celebration for parents. Sure, they’ll miss certain aspects of summer, but having all the kids at home with limited responsibilities for an extended period of time is straight up exhausting. Four Florida moms teamed up for a hilarious photoshoot in honor of the first day of school, and it’s since gone totally viral.
According to The Huffington Post, Shawna Genua, owner of Wee Winks Photography in Minneola, texted three of her neighborhood mom friends the night before the first day of school to propose a photo shoot idea. The end result is hysterical: the four women sitting in a driveway with wine glasses (containing fruit punch) in hand, partying it up next to a sign that reads “First day of school 2019, #ByeFelicia”.
Genua told the Post she was inspired to do the shoot after seeing parents post about their first days of school, but decided to add a fun twist. “Some of you are sad,” she wrote on Facebook along with the photos. “This is me and my girls. We will be juuuuuuust fine.”
The images have since gone viral, and though there are obviously some haters who don’t get the joke, these ladies are maintaining their good sense of humor. “We love our kids more than life itself, but we also need to take a break and laugh sometimes,” one of the moms, Pedretti Kelly, told the Post. “We need to recharge and reset.” The four moms have 18 children between them, so yeah, that rest is 100 percent deserved.
Happy first day of school!!! We’ll be juuuuuuust fine!! 🤣 Ellen DeGeneres
