Whatever sort of mom you are, we’re here for you. If you work full time, if you work from home, if you work raising your kids and taking care of your home, you are a bada$$ and you’re doing a fantastic job.
These 17 memes will hit the hardest if you’re of the stay-at-home variety, though, so keep that in mind – but please, enjoy them no matter your current work status.
17. I have no idea what mine looks like.
They get emptied and immediately have clothes in them again.
16. All too often.
And those hours are almost never in a row.
15. Those are your fancy pants.
Which is honestly one of the better perks of the job.
14. Literally never.
You might get a few hours break after the kids are finally down, but that’s it.
13. Day dates are the best.
Because your kids aren’t overtired and you’re not giving up a weekend.
12. Are those even still a thing?
I don’t think I’ve ever seen one.
11. It takes all types.
If making bread and soaps brings you joy, do it.
10. I hope you have time for a long list.
I’ve thought about making one, just for fun, but it would be too depressing.
9. One of the hardest things.
Why aren’t grandparents available 24/7?
8. Some days are like that.
Most of them are better, though.
7. Ooh, someone’s getting wild.
And they’re probably under the age of 5.
6. You get dressed up for Target.
Because Target always gets dolled up for you.
5. Eh, clean is clean.
As long as nothing is toxic.
4. Then all the night through.
Good luck turning off your brain.
3. The important stuff.
The rest of it can honestly wait.
2. The mom guilt never ends.
It’s definitely not limited to stay-at-home moms either.
1. That’s also when I get dressed.
It’s a wild ride, y’all. I’m glad I’m not on it alone.
