8 Absurd Kids' Personas to Watch out for on the First Day of School

The first day of school is kind of like Christmas — it only comes around once a year. Well, OK, other than that, it's not really like Christmas at all. Whether you're dropping your kid off for the first day of kindergarten or the first day of high school, you're sure to spot some of these characters along the way. Which personality best describes your kid?

The Clinger

This kid will not let go of his mom or dad's leg. The teacher can pull all he or she wants, but this kid's got an iron grip. Somebody get the crowbar.

The Doomsdayer

This kid thinks the end of summer is the end of world a they know it. Watch out for uncontrollable crying, screaming and tantrums as this one tries to wrap his or her head around the concept of not being able to play all day long. You think going to school five days a weeks is tough? Get used to it, kid. It's only gonna get harder. At least you get recess.

The Fashionista

This kid is way too satisfied with his or her first day-of-school outfit. You can tell they've spent hours mixing and matching to find the perfect combination, and now they're walking down the hallway like it's a catwalk. Though, you gotta admit, their sock game is on point.

The Judger

This kid may not be saying anything directly, but you can tell by those facial expressions that they're judging everyone else's first-day outfit (except for the Fashionista). So many eye rolls.
