Over the past few weeks and the next few weeks, thousands of kids will go to school for the very first time . . . and naturally, there will be some tears.
But not from the kids . . . they're basically cool with it. Meanwhile you're sitting in the car BAWLING your eyes out.
A new survey found PARENTS are FIVE TIMES more likely than kids to cry on the first day of school.
More than half of parents say they felt overwhelmingly emotional the first time they dropped their kids off at school . . . three-quarters say it felt like the end of an era . . . and 44% immediately considered having another baby.
Half of parents also say after their kid started school, things were never the same . . . they noticed a difference when they cuddled with their kid from that point on.
