Motherhood is a challenge and we all know it, with numerous responsibilities and very little time to actually manage all tasks on the plate. It sure has its perks and joys but it’s also taxing at the same time. Just imagine running around the house, managing the household chores, taking care of the tiny ones while being a professional! God, that must be really tough.
Being a mother requires a lot of patience and the correct dose of humour. With their sense of humour and fun, the new age mommies not only release their stress but also cheer the Internet.
Just think about the tantrums they are thrown at when there is not-so-tasty food (read green veggies) on the plate for dinner and when there’s abstract art on the walls. The sudden show of stubbornness by the little human in a departmental store or on road. It’s difficult to understand how they do it, but they surely have some special powers known only to them.
These ladies don’t mess around or sugarcoat things. They’re hilariously honest about being a mother, and thank goodness, they share their experience on social media.
Here are some of the best tweets by mothers and they totally owned it, every time.
You should not mess with her about ‘personal space’
Daughter: You’re invading my personal space
Mom: You came out of my personal space

Of course you need personal time as well
Stay in school, kids.
No, I mean really. Don’t come home. We need a break.

Asked to switch seats on the plane because I was sitting next to a crying baby. Apparently, that’s not allowed if the baby is yours.

There is only so much they can keep away from
First kid: healthy, organic everything.
After third kid: KFC chicken leg falls on floor – just pick it up and eat it, I don’t care.

Life not a bed of roses
I don’t care how cute your kid is. When you wake up in the middle of the night and see them standing next to your bed, they are terrifying.

Logic is not always their best friend
9: Mom, why are all those girls standing on their tiptoes?
Me: Because they’re ballet dancers
9: Why didn’t they just get taller girls?

No sugarcoating, remember?
Daycare: “Her mouth is all blue. What did she have for breakfast?”
Me: “A marker.”

I just asked my 8yo to quit yelling and he said, “I’m NOT yelling. This is my voice and all my life I’ve been whispering. Now I’m free!”

Role play is so important
*Mary Poppins voice*
Ok, children! Time to go!
[15 min later]
I said let’s go.

9: [Whispers] Why do we have to keep sitting & standing and sitting & standing…
Me: [Whispers] So we don’t fall asleep

Dream or nightmare!
Now that both my kids are in school all day, I can live the stay-at-home-parent dream of keeping caught up with the laundry.
