Motherhood is no joke, y’all. From that very first pregnancy test, when you’re already sore, possibly throwing up, and unable to have blessed caffeine to the actual labor and delivery, and then, you know…the rest of your life, it can feel like an uphill climb.

Those of us who are able to laugh at it – whether the jokes are brutal and real or just hilariously on point – are much more likely to get through it all relatively unscathed (and also without a drinking problem).

So come along and have a laugh with these 11 truly hilarious mamas.

11. You want them to be inquisitive.

But not before you’ve finished that first cup of coffee.

10. It’s truly the ultimate test.

Especially because most of the time they have no idea what they’re trying to say.

9. Are you prepared?

Because honestly none of us were.

8. I mean, it’s still kind of a win.

They were playing together nicely, after all.

7. There are always rocks in your purse.

And definitely something sticky.

6. Doesn’t it just?

I think we could all do with a few more villagers.

5. Can we make this a thing?

Who do we have to see?

4. See also: bribery in general.

It may not be ideal, but man, does it usually work.

3. Pretending to care is exhausting.

I know, their mental health and self esteem yada yada.

2. Half the time you can’t even find the lids to try to save them.

It would probably be too late anyway.

1. We knew it all.

Then we found out we don’t know anything, and in a few years our kids will become teens and they will know it, too.

I want to be friends with every one of these woman, no lie.
