The Holderness Family shows us the difference between September parenting and May parenting

It’s almost June, which means the end of the school year is upon us. Finally. But, not quite yet. These last few weeks are basically a joke. We’re barely scraping by, just trying to get the kids out the door somewhat fully dressed with their backpacks taped together.

It’s only a few more weeks, right? They don’t really need new shoes? Or more pencils. Or t-shirts that aren’t faded and ripped. Lunch? Can’t you just throw a few apples in your backpack, kid?

The Holderness family made another video we can relate to, and right on time. If your kids are hanging together by a string at this time of year, you’re not alone.

They captioned the video with, “In our house, there’s a big difference between September Parenting and May Parenting. What about you? #whoneedsahairbrush #youneedluncheverysingleday? #makeitstop”

September Parenting: These are brand new shoes that are going to keep you sturdy and safe all year long!

May Parenting:Mommy there’s holes in these things.

You know what, you’re gonna be in flip-flops in a couple weeks anyway, so we’re just going to go ahead and tape these up and no one will ever know.

If you’re feeling bad about the state of your household right now remember… everyone is a better parent in the fall.
