Alabama Mom's Hilarious Pics Reveal Parents' Back-To-School Happiness

"Happy 1st day of school kids. I'm gonna miss y'all!"

Keshia Gardner of Scottsboro, Ala., posted two hilarious pictures on Facebook of herself literally jumping for joy on the first day of school for her five kids — and they've received national attention thanks to parents who know exactly how she feels.

Summers are long enough without having a house full of kids requiring busywork and activities to keep them from complaining of boredom on days when they're not out with friends, shipped off to camp, or otherwise occupied and (hopefully) kept out of trouble. 

It's a cute reminder that being a parent doesn't necessarily mean wanting to be around your offspring all the time ... especially for three months in the swelter of a Southern summer.

Gardner's pics have also spawned some pretty amusing Photoshopped versions, including this Star Wars-themed one.

Gardner posted a similar pic at the same time last year. Looks like her kids are used to it.

We're looking forward to what she has in store for her kids' graduation days. We're guessing she might miss them just a little.
