While kids are not always thrilled to go back to school, for some reason parents do not always share that feeling. Heck, one might say that they are even happy about it.

Bored Panda has compiled a list of overly-excited parents posing next to their not so excited offspring that perfectly capture this 'sad' moment. Do you have a similar photo to share with us? Upload it to the list and vote for your favorite ones!

the girl laughing seems to have a great sense of humor just like her mom.

Yeah, she does. Or saying, "My mom is a dork! I love my mom!"

The kid in black is like, "My friends are going to see this. Maybe they wont recognize any of my family."

I wonder how the kid's really fee? All jokes aside, it's not a good feeling to not be wanted. Or to be made to feel like someone doesn't want you around. I am all for jokes and fun but how is it funny telling someone you like their absence better than them being around? That's not something that is even funny.

You can tell it's probably a 14 year old boy who's covering his face with his hand, it's just too embarrassing for him. He's way too cool for this.

So why have kids if you so much dislike being a parent? Poor kids. How would you feel if your spouse posted things like this when one of you must start working and not the other? I love my kids and love spending time with them!

Kudos to that mom, for adopting, for having so many kids, raising them and still looking absolutely gorgeous. If I had 7 kids I'd look like a zombie. I'm sure someone somehow will get offended by my comment, but whatever.
