IT'S the time of day that many parents dread – the school run.
And if your child goes to nursery, primary school and senior school all at the same place, or near to each other, and you do the school run twice a day, that's an awful lot of that same journey.
That's the realisation that mum Jessica Da Silva came to when she was dropping her daughter to nursery for her second day.
"As I was walking home, I came to the realisation that I’ll have to be doing the same school run for 18 years," she sighed in a video on her TikTok page.
"And the same awkward smile to the parents on the playground because I can’t be bothered to talk to them."
She then demonstrated said awkward smile, before adding: "F**k!"

And other parents quickly took to the comments section to relate to Jessica's video.
