Ah, Mother’s Day. The holiday for moms. Typically full of love and flowers and special gifts, all with the hardest-working woman you know (mom!) at the center of it all. It can be a reflective and beautiful holiday, or a silly and fun one. It can be whatever Mom needs it to be. But we got an especially big kick out of these funny Mother’s Day tweets, because they really sum up the emotional spectrum we associate with the holiday. The highs and the lows. The sweetness and the silliness. The love and (usually-not-malicious) resentments.
Between shopping for the perfect gift, struggling to write a heartfelt message in a card, making brunch plans, and figuring out what Mom actually wants, Mother’s Day is a surprising amount of work. But it’s fun work, because moms are worth it. Still, it’s a holiday ripe for clever observations, and no one’s better at making those than Twitter users.
Without further ado, here are 11 Mother’s Day tweets that are sure to make you smile and laugh. They should also serve as a gentle reminder to write that card, plan that phone call, or do whatever you need to do to make your mom feel special this Sunday. Them’s the rules!
