Some events, like Halloween, end as soon as they're over. Same goes for Valentine’s Day. The lead-up feels interminable, but there’s no extension. New Year, on the other hand, like you can say “Happy New Year” to someone pretty much through January. And Back to School starts at the end of July and lasts all through September. I haven’t been “back to school” in a while, but I’ve never lost that Labour Day feeling, the “dread” that washes over you about going back to school, mixed with the excitement about what will happen at school. I wonder if I’ll feel it forever…because I don’t have kids.
Because the people who DO have kids LOVE those three words: Back to School.
Don’t worry. It doesn’t make you a bad parent to admit this. You don’t have to admit this. Don’t admit anything. Maybe it’s only the f-cking assholes I know and everyone else out there is big hearts and big love. How do you think Angelina Jolie feels about Back to School? Probably she’s not one of the assholes and is of the big hearts and big love variety, and is sad about Back to School. She was definitely sad about dropping Maddox off at school.
Here she is, Labour Day weekend, hanging out with Pax, Zahara, and Shiloh in LA. They look like they’re having a great time, joking around with each other, laughing with and at each other after lunch. Apparently Angelina, Z, and Shiloh also went to a day party afterwards.
Meanwhile …did you see those shots of Brad Pitt at Kanye West’s Sunday Service? So he’s hanging out with Kanye and his kids are with their mother. I mean, I don’t want to start sh-t but I guess I am starting sh-t but what’s the right GIF for when you’re photographed Kardashian-adjacent but it’s been three years since you’ve been seen with your kids? LOL is she trolling him?
