Did the Holderness family secretly peek into my house and see that my kids are making me crazy as summer draws to an end? Because the hilarious family's new DMX song parody, "Lose My Mind," is basically my life. Like my kids, theirs are fighting over every little thing, and in the process, driving their parents to drink.
Hey, summer started out being fun; no parent would deny that. But we've all had enough of dragging everything we own to the pool.
Yes, fast-forward two months after the last day of school, and I. Can't. Take. It. Any. Longer!!! It seems the Holdernesses are right there with me. Their kids are complaining about being bored (sounds familiar) and pretending not to know anything about the summer reading list at the bottom of their backpack.
Look, there comes a time when you've had enough togetherness, and it seriously crosses your mind that it would be a good idea to just drop your kids off at school now, before it officially starts. I mean, that way at least they can get acquainted with their new classroom. Don't say you haven't considered this!
Thank you to the Holderness family for always keeping it real.
Are you sooo ready for your kids to go back to school?
