My mom is the best, y’all. Like most girls, I didn’t really appreciate her when I was younger, but now that I’m not younger and have babies of my own at all of that, she’s a friend and an invaluable resource and someone who always tells me the truth, even when it stings.
Sometimes she seems to enjoy that part of motherhood just a bit too much, but it’s a small critique.
That said, she’s still a mom, and a Boomer, and she does and says things that are occasionally worthy of public ridicule. She’s learned that just because I make fun of her on Facebook doesn’t mean I don’t love her.
In fact, it mostly means I love her a lot.
And these 15 people feel the same way about their great and adorably clueless mothers. Enjoy.
15. That’s really…something.
I need to hear the entire story immediately.

14. This never stops being a valid comeback.
And also your mom never ever has privacy ever again.

13. Who says dads have all the jokes?
This is a solid pun, AND it got you off the couch.

Where do you think you got it from?

10. Moms don’t care who is listening.
She will sing whether it’s embarrassing you, her, or everyone else.
I texted my mom that I was having a hard week and she called and sang “you are my sunshine” to me even though her whole office could hear her 😭☀️ I don’t deserve her.

9. This is an accurate representation.
Whether you’re 10 or 40.

8. Answer her now, make fun of her later.
Preferably on a social media platform she doesn’t know how to use.

7. That’s funnier than anything my toddler has coined to date.
He’s really slacking on this “amuse his parent” duty.
My mom frequently forgets the name for cargo shorts and calls them "purse pants" #MomQuotes

6. You just never know what she’s going to do with it, right?
And also, God forbid she pulls up your texts or photos when she’s done.

4. That doesn’t happen for just anyone.
Especially if I’m dating you.
"my mom likes you" is an ELITE compliment

3. It’s a conundrum, for sure.
Just stay put. You’ll thank me when you have kids.

And also sympathize, because #metoo.

I just love all of these and I can hear my mother saying “don’t you put that on Facebook!” in my mind.
Do you have this sort of relationship with your mom? What’s the funniest thing you’ve ever busted her saying or doing?
Let’s keep the mom funnies going in the comments!
