No one said parenting was easy
In fact, it’s one of the hardest things you can do. Be responsible for another human being? Sheesh! I’m barely capable of being responsible for myself! Nevertheless, despite the tall order that is becoming a mom or dad, many people take it. Because the reward of seeing something— someone that you created, is worth the effort.
It doesn’t always feel that way, though. Just as these moms who are on the verge of breaking down.
#1 So much to love, so little time
They say you don't know love until you become a parent, and that's because you finally understand how much you love sleep. Or sitting down.

#2 Sassy seven-year-old
7yo: Why can't I have coffee?

#3 No, you have them. I don’t want them. You’re the one that forgot to about protection.
My husband and I talked about getting a divorce, but neither one of us wants the kids.

#4 “MOOOOOM. I’m hungry.”
Parenting is fun if you're into things like cooking for people who aren't hungry.

#5 I’m sorry to tell you that it’s chronic.
I put my symptoms into WebMD & it turns out I just have kids.

#6 If it’s stupid, but it works, it’s not stupid.
If you haven't used a juice box as a chaser, then you probably haven't reached your lowest point in parenting yet.

#7 They obviously plan it
Saturday morning wake up: 6:30am

#8 Exceptions are to be expected.
We plan to be kind patient moms who accept our kids exactly as they are then we see them take 45 mins to eat a goddamn bowl of Lucky Charms.

#9 They need their alone time.
Stay in school, kids.
No, I mean really. Don't come home. We need a break.

#10 Guessing by the number she’s at, probably 10.
Let's play a game called How Many Times Will Mommy Repeat Herself Before She Loses Her Shit?

#11 What a spoiled generation of kids.
When I was 8 yrs old, I walked to school by myself; now you have to hold your kid's hand right up to their first drug deal.

#12 And then throw the poop at other people.
What I say:
Get in the car
What my kids hear:
Have a snack
Shriek like monkeys
Open 3 umbrellas indoors

#13 Everything is possible as a mom
Before I had kids, I didn't even know it was possible to destroy an entire house with a granola bar.

#14 You’re dead to me
Me:"If you ever give me another gift with 'some assembly required', you're dead to us."
6:*writing thank you card* But, um..
Me: Write it!

#15 It’s bad for them!
Being a parent means hiding in a closet to eat a donut so you don't have to share.

#16 She lived there for nine months before moving out
Daughter: You're invading my personal space
Mom: You came out of my personal space

#17 Life hack
New plan. Instead of exercising & eating better, I'm just going to tell everybody I'm 4 months pregnant.
For the rest of my life.

#18 It’s a complicated relationship
I've never simultaneously loved something so much and wanted it to shut up as badly as I do with my kids.

#19 No, son, you can’t go around kissing strangers.
I watched Sleeping Beauty with my son and then I had to explain to him the importance of consent.
