This Is How It’s Done
You know what? There aren’t enough motherhood memes that encourage you to pat yourself on the back. Moms, you deserve this.
Kids are disgusting little animals! Animals that we love and look cute at times, but animals nonetheless. If you’ve ever had a kid put something in their mouth that they’re not supposed to, only to have them deny it when you ask them about it, you know how tricky the little creatures can be. We suppose we’ve done the same.
Expectations V. Reality
We are all filled with such hope about how we will parent our kids when they are on the horizon. But, like most things in life, motherhood comes at you fast. The reality versus what you thought parenthood would feel like are often polar opposites for most.
We All Need a Break
Have you ever wanted some alone time this badly? This motherhood meme feels oh, so relatable. We do know how it can feel to be trapped in a house with your kids driving you crazy. We say, find ways to make it more enjoyable.
Everything Is Fine
Just do your best. It’s all you can do. This particular combo isn’t one that we’ve heard of ourselves, but hey, kids can be a little gross sometimes. We just gotta roll with it, as this motherhood meme proves. That being said, this shows that even when you might know exactly what your kid needs, it might be hard to get them to comply.
The Outlook for Months
Have you ever seen a better representation of a child’s at-home schedule? This deserves all the motherhood meme awards. At this point, you’ve got the younger kids all figured out. Now you just have to get ready for what might be a rapid change when they start becoming teenagers. That might just be a whole different battle that you face.
Parenting is fun! You’ll discover many opportunities for teachable moments. But sometimes mistakes happen, and we know that there’s so much love that you can pack into a little note. Even one about stale bread. Remember, folks, teach your kids to close the bread box when they’re done nursing it. It could save them from stale lunchbox sandwiches they hate.
The Feeling of Freedom
This motherhood meme is also a sage prediction of what will come. Wait for this day and then live accordingly. Once it happens, you’ll totally see just how much you can get done, whether it ends up being a spa day for yourself or working on a project that you haven’t been able to get to. Those days are golden.
When running errands, mostly for the benefit of your children, you tell yourself it’s “me time.” It’s the only way any of us are going to make it through. Those little moments of free time definitely matter the most. Especially when it seems like they’re the only free time you’re going to get. We say enjoy all those grocery runs!
Very Specific, But Totally Relatable
It’s crazy the things we will overlook in order for a little break here and there. At times, you have to let go and let the little things count for something. We all have those days when we just can’t pull ourselves together, so we let the universe do what it has to do so we don’t get too overwhelmed.
Sounds About Right
For sure! This is a fact. We’re certain many moms out there would relate to this. We love a motherhood meme that uncovers a universal truth. When a kid spends so much time being dependent on you. It’s hard for them not to think that you can’t make it work. They’ll learn soon enough that you can’t do everything for them.
“It will end in tears” perfectly predicts the future for any child’s activity in their first several years of life. Tough it out, parents. You will survive. Those kids are gonna make a lot of small things seem huge, and you’re gonna have to navigate the feelings that come with that. We have faith that you’ll be able to manage.

Unfortunately, it’s just going to get harder and harder. Hang in there; you got this, parents! Sometimes you’ll be prepared, and sometimes you won’t, but none of that will matter. All that matters is that you stick it through until you come out the other side of it. No matter what scratches, scrapes, and bruises. You can get through it.
How do we get on this level? This is the best motherhood meme because it’s actually a teaching moment. May we all find a hack as this mom did. There’s nothing like coming up with a creative solution right when things are getting out of control. We don’t blame this mom for doing what she had to do. Rock on!
When You Think Your Child Is Feral
How many times have you asked your kids to chew their food with their mouths closed? This motherhood meme perfectly captures that struggle. It’s like they are anemic to manners!
How It Started V. How It’s Going
We laughed so hard at this motherhood meme because there’s never been anything more real. Once you have one baby under your belt, the next one feels far less fragile and precious. We still love our babies, but we’re not going to be fancy about it anymore.
