Mom Celebrates Back-To-School Day In Style — At Her Kids’ Expense

When Jena Willingham’s kids headed back to school earlier this week, the Alabama mother was overcome with emotion.


The feeling? Freedom.


“I was like, I’m going to celebrate, because they’ve been arguing all summer and I need a break,” Willingham said.


To capture the moment, Willingham snapped a photo of her lounging in a swimming pool, a champagne flute of orange juice in hand, as her children sulked behind her with backpacks on.


The photo was posted to Facebook on Monday with the caption “Happy first day of school everyone!” It has since been shared more than 19,000 times.


The picture was meant as a joke. But the first day of school marked a major milestone for Willingham, who works as a mail carrier.
