8 GIFs that *perfectly* capture back-to-school shopping with your mom

With back-to-school shopping on everyone's agenda, we bet you've spent at least a few hours at the mall with your mom, grandma or aunt lately. In most cases, it's equal parts fun, stress and bonding. Here are 8 gifs that sum up the sitch perfectly!

1. Your Mom Wants To Leave At The Crack Of Dawn

It's an unfortunate truth that whenever you go out in sweats, hair unwashed, you will run into a) your crush, b) your ex-bestie or c)a model scout. So, even though Mom has you up at 6 a.m. to hit the stores as early as possible, be sure to sched some primp time!

2. Finding Parking Takes Forever

And then you have to walk a mile to get into the store (comfy shoes are basically a requirement) and you won't remember where you parked when you come back out.

3. She Doesn't Like Your Fave Stores

Or, more accurately, she doesn't approve of Forever 21's definition of a shirt. But you can convince her to at least look around before going to her fave place, and find the rare cute piece you both agree on.

4. You'll Be On The Lookout For Sales

 

via GIPHY

Even though you swear there's nothing good in clearance, she surprises you with the $3 pants of your dreams. *Told you so*.

5. You Will Lose Each Other At Least Once

And, face it, panic a little bit. But then be super relieved when you find each other.

6. She'll Make You Do A Mini-Fashion Show In The Dressing Room

Which is kind of fun, actually—not that you'd tell her that.

7. And She'll Share Your Life Story With The Other Moms There

 

via GIPHY

So that they could write a biography on every award you've won since kindergarten.

8. And At The End Of The Day, Everyone Wins

 

via GIPHY

Yes, you've scored some cute clothes—but you've also made great memories with your mom. Cheesy as it sounds, you know you'll want to go shopping with her again.

Which of these is most relatable? Drop a comment below!
