This Mom Is Every Parent After First Day Of Kindergarten Drop-Off

"He's not ready! His teacher doesn’t know he needs 14 kisses every 45 seconds!”

The first day of school is an emotional time for parents who feel pulled between the struggle to let go and a sense of euphoria at the prospect of freedom.

Mom and HuffPost blogger Susannah Lewis captures this emotional roller coaster in a hilarious viral video. Titled “Kindergarten vs. Every Other Grade,” the video shows how parents’ feelings about sending their kids back to school evolve over time ― from “He’s not ready! His teacher doesn’t know he needs 14 kisses every 45 seconds!” to “Yes! Manicure. Pedicure. Vegas!”

With over six million views, the video has clearly struck a chord with parents and kids across the social media sphere. Happy back-to-school season!
