We all know it by now: Chrissy Teigen may be a successful model, author and show host who’s married to superstar John Legend, but she’s also the most relatable mom in the twitterverse—especially when she shares hilariously honest parenting moments like her latest back-to-school mishap.

Remember when you were preparing to send your child off to school for the first time, and how momentous it was? Yesterday morning, Teigen attended her 2-year-old daughter Luna’s school orientation, and made quite the impression:

“Hello everyone from Luna’s school orientation today. I’m sorry I projectile puked caffeine upon arrival, couldn’t open my eyes and had the noisiest newborn in the room. (Not a joke, very sorry, see you tomorrow),” she wrote.

Then came the follow-up:

“Oh no it was not first day of school jitters. It was last night’s wine and Korean bbq and jet lag combo,” she admits.

Twitter, of course, roared back with a combination of sympathy, laughter, hilarious commentary, supportive GIFs, advice and some all-too-funny anecdotes to go along with hers—because you know Teigen isn’t the only parent to have tales of mortifying back-to-school moments.

Others saw the strategic genius behind the albeit unintentional move:

And plenty of others had some heartfelt sympathy to offer up:

We’re looking forward to years of Luna and Miles stories as Teigen and husband John Legend take on school, summer camp and the highs and lows of the PTA.
