If you hadn't noticed from all the extremely fashionable teenagers out and about, school has started.

Mom's ecstatic first day of school picture is going viral, but does she know what that sign she’s holding means?
The first day of school, and the last day before viral Internet stardom.

And so has the influx of "first day of school" photos on social media. A lot of parents are creating crafty, Pinterest-level back-to-school signs for their kids to hold while posing for pics. The pictures are cute, they'll be great to look back on when the children grow up, and, let's be real, they get a crazy amount of likes. Just because you're a parent doesn't mean you can stop thinking about your social media presence.

Virginia mom Jessi Kittrell, who's a professional photographer, staged a "first day of school" photo with a twist (above). Think of it as a gritty modern reboot of the form. Her frowning daughter holds a "1st day of Kindergarten" sign, while Kittrell looks excited AF to see her go. She's wearing a bathrobe and slippers, is ready to drink a Starbucks coffee and some nice tequila, and holds a sign that says "Bye Felicia." The photo was shared on Facebook by a local news reporter, and now it has more than 170,000 likes.

The picture is cute, and hopefully won't be traumatizing for anyone involved, but as Buzzfeed points out, it's really similar to this other photo from August. Actually, really similar. Actually, exactly the same. Can we get some likes for this mom?

Also, do all these moms know what "Bye Felicia" means?

And will someone make me a cool sign? I wake up and get my own butt out the door every morning. Now where are my faves?
