12 Memes for All of the Parents out There Who Are Barely Getting by

I have only been a parent for 3 years, but here’s what I’ve learned: I am not like other parents, and that is okay. Other moms appear to at least glance into mirrors before they take their children places. They seem to check their clothes for random splatters, and their kids’ faces are never randomly smeared with something they found to eat in their car seats.

I am not the coolest or most organized or best smelling or skinniest mom on the block, but since I love my kids and they seem to be doing okay, I give myself a break on the rest.

If you’re sort of a hot mess parent, well, these 12 memes are totally for us.

I’m fine with being a mess, though I have recently promised my husband I would TRY to keep the family car clean. Fingers crossed!
