Being a parent is one of life’s greatest blessings.
The love you have for your children is unlike any other. But, let’s face it, some days you feel like you’re failing.
Leave it to the wonderful people of the internet to make you feel like you’re not alone in this crazy thing called life.
Here are our 15 of our favorite tweets from mothers about parenting. Smile, laugh, and remember if they’re fed, clothed, and loved, then you’re doing a great job!
1. The dreaded “storage is almost full” notification on your phone.
*Going through my phone deleting pics for more storage space*
“Can’t delete that picture of my baby.”
“Or that one.”
“This one’s a bit blurry but I still love it.”
“This one’s practically the same, but he’s so cute.”
*Only deleted 5* ??#motherhood

2. There should be an award that comes with making it through the toddler years.
Today’s mess brought to you by Take n Toss cups and water.
Complete with toddler getting into garbage & bringing paper towel with coffee grounds to help clean up.

3. It’s time for someone to invent a “Mommy-Lunchable.” I’d buy it.
Why has no one made a lunchable for moms yet? I’m thinking a little box of wine, some Dove chocolate, some fruit, pretzels, and a quote that reminds you you’re an awesome mom and can make it through the day. Some company could get rich quick! ??♀️ #motherhood

4. Every parent knows that feeling … It’s normal to be on a first name basis with your Pediatrician, right?

5. By the third child, you’re just thankful they bathed in the past week.
Parenting doesn’t actually get easier but by the 3rd kid you stop feeling guilty for not buying their school pictures or anything from fundraisers and this feels like winning #momlife #motherhood #lifewithkids

6. They don’t tell you at the hospital when you become a parent, you also become MacGyver.
I sent my kid to school with socks on her hands today cause I couldn’t find gloves. Pretty sure this means I’ve “made it.”

7. Pass me that bottle of dry shampoo, please. Pro-tip: Baby wipes work great for smeared mascara or if you get deodorant on your shirt.

8. I hope this gets released on Apple Music. These songs are my jam.
“JUST ONE MORE BITE” is the name of my debut album, dropping this fall. Featuring chart topping singles like:
DON’T PUT THAT IN YOUR MOUTH and BECAUSE I SAID SO
And the timeless classic

9. Didn’t you just cry over your lunch you refused to eat 45 minutes ago?
My eyeballs could fall out of my face and my limbs be severed from my body and my kids would walk in the room and ask me for a snack.

10. For the love … please, get your shoes on so mommy isn’t late for work. Again.
*Mary Poppins voice*
Ok, children! Time to go!
[15 min later]
I said let’s go.

11. When we suddenly realize, we liked our children better when they weren’t mobile.
— Caffeine, Chaos & Grace (@cafchaosgrace) October 2, 2018
12. The joys of having a hot meal are over. Just get used to the fact.
Ever notice in the story of the 3 bears, Papa Bear’s porridge is piping hot, baby’s is perfect, & poor Mama Bear’s is cold?
I get it now.
— Domestic Goddess (@DomesticGoddss) July 27, 2015
13. So are the luxuries of going to the bathroom alone.
My 4yo just shut the bathroom door on me while I was inside and told me I was in jail. So I locked the door. I love this game.

14. That terrifying moment you realize your kids have been quiet for too long.
— Erin Brighton, MPH, M.Ed. (@and_she_cooks) September 28, 2018
15. Is it hard? Of course, it is. But we wouldn’t trade it for anything.
MOTHERHOOD is a forever love story… Enjoy every minute and treasure it!
