Sometimes the best way to get through life as a parent is having a sense of humor, and Danielle Bevens has you covered. She’s the creator of a popular self-titled Instagram account where she posts parenting-related humor, always laid out on a white-on-black letter board.
At home, Bevens is the mother of two boys, two-year-old Noah and newborn Toby, giving her an endless supply of material. She uses Instagram as a way to punctuate the chaos. “I’m the only girl in our household,” she told Babble, “and I’m learning to love it! My fiancé works out of town so it’s usually just me and the boys!”
For a hefty dose of parenting humor, check out some choice letter board jokes from Bevens below!
My #letterboard thought for the week. Feeling massive, tired and grumpy. Here’s to hoping I meet this little boy this weekend. As long as I’ve cleaned everything by then. I swear I’m going insane! Anyone else decide everything needs to be reorganized in there last few weeks? I just can’t help myself! ?#momlife #38weekspregnant #boymom #inspirepregnancy #ig_motherhood #lettersfromourletterboard
2. Do As I Say, Not As I Do
It’s Thursday which means it’s almost Friday which means absolutely nothing to me cause I’m a mom with zero social life. Despite that however i decided it was time for a weekly #letterboard thought cause again with the truth. ??Today’s for convincing Jeremy to clean the garage and looking up crockpot recipes, cause somehow I woke up and I’m an adult. ??#momlife #boymom #fromwhereistand #lettersfromourletterboard
3. Fuzzy Math
Taa-daa! My did it myself wood burnt Monopoly board. Disclaimer: this would have cost me nothing if I didn’t realize last minute that we had Nintendo Monopoly and not the original… hence me having to buy an entire new game just to have the original board to go off of. I tried. ?Regardless, I love seeing my ideas come to life. Especially ones that involve a good old fashioned family game night. ?? #momlife #diy #flatlay #fromwhereistand #lettersfromourletterboard
4. We Could All Use An Assistant
5. Keeping Them Off Balance
But seriously. ? Or it’s just me yelling “I’m leaving”, over and over until they decided to actually follow me. Regardless Papa Jer gets on that jet plane home to us today and it’s safe to say we couldn’t be more excited. Now to kill 12 hours so we can go get him! ?#momlife #letterboard #letterfolk #lettersfromourletterboard
6. The Struggle Is Real
It’s Friday and that means it’s clean the house so you can try and have some free time this weekend. I’ve been tidying all week and I still don’t feel like I’ve gotten anywhere! I guess that’s what happens when you’ve got a two year old tornado following you around trying to “help”. ??♀️ Keeping up with the weekly letterboard thoughts with some serious truth today- that is if I can find clean clothes. ? #momlife #boymom #letterboard #letterfolk #lettersfromourletterboard
7. When Your Only Friend Is Dora
I also don’t know what’s more awkward, the fact that my belly is officially bigger then it was when I delivered Noah or that he dripped his yogurt on my letter board this morning. Either way both have me equally unsettled. But seriously I can’t be the only mom who hates Dora… or the only one who religiously answer her questions. Probably with a little to much excitement. ? #letterfolk #letterboard #lettersfromourletterboard
8. Meal Roulette
9. The Longest Day
Noah and Monday decided it would be cool to start our day at 2 AM. So as a product of that Noah’s kinda grumpy and I’m REALLY grumpy.. I don’t know what’s gotten into Noah but those precious 6 hours of sleep are actually the only ones I get to myself and I can’t have Noah demanding paw patrol during much needed mamasleep. ?? #lettersfromourletterboard
10. It’s A Sign
So just buy the stuff that comes in the can, save yourself the blood, sweat and raised voices. Unless you’re some sort of supermom who finds baking tranquil and you’ve got children who don’t run for the oven door the second you open it. If that’s you my kids and I would love to come over for handmade cinnamon rolls. ??? #momlife #boymom #letterboard #letterfolk #lettersfromourletterboard
11. Progress Report
Seriously though. ? It’s Monday and I somehow woke before both my boys. Today’s for wishing it wasn’t Monday and catching up on house work I’ve neglected this weekend. 8 days until dads home to help with the train wreck that is potty training. Also, am I supposed to teach him to pee standing up!? This is rocket science I tell ya! ?? #momlife #boymom #fromwhereistand #lettersfromourletterboard
12. Happy Father’s Day!
13. Regret Nothing
Couple things. I found my letters in the bottom of a laundry basket courtesy of you know who, but I can now continue my weekly #letterboard thoughts. ?? Also that yogurt stain will forever haunt me. ? Oh and thanks Papa Jer for lending a hand. Literally. ? #momlife #letterfolk #lettersfromourletterboard
14. No Glow
Some serious truth from my Sunday morning #letterboard thoughts. I wish I had that pregnancy glow, instead I haven’t slept in months and I’m pretty sure my normal people clothing will never fit again. ? Today I start walking and eating buffalo chicken sandwiches cause I’m ready for this baby I tell ya. Even if that means a last minute plane ride to get dad here. Feeling large and not in charge at this point… ? #momlife #letterfolk #37weekspregnant #lettersfromourletterboard
15. This one was a no-brainer.
My weekly #letterboard thought. Except this week I took requests from the family and we decided the thought was unanimous. Even our crazy Noah stops to show Toby a little love throughout the day. Two has been a learning curve but so far so good. One week left with papa Jer and then we’ll see how we’re doing. A little nervous but so excited to figure out our routine. Already wishing time would slow down. ? #momlife #boymom #letterfolkquotes #lettersfromourletterboard
