Parenting is almost never easy, and it can sometimes feel like it’s just you against the world. Constant exhaustion, glowing pride in your munchkin, juggling a dozen tasks at once, wholesome bedtime stories, five minute naps because you just can not anymoreand a hasty realization that life is far more strange and wonderful than you could ever imagine – it’s just the tip of the iceberg to be a mom.
The ‘Satirical Mom’ social media project is perfect for helping you realize that you really are not alone when it comes to the ups, downs and loopholes of being a mom or dad. Raising children is difficult, and knowing that someone is going through the same things can be uplifting. We have collected some of the best memes, shared by ‘Satirical Mom’, to bring a little humor and happiness into your lives, Pandas.
Tune in to your favorite memes as you unroll, and if you feel like it, share your own experience with raising your kids in the comments. How do you manage to get everything done on time? What makes you proud to be a parent? What do you do when you walk empty? Get some coffee and come ventilate and enjoy some fun with everyone.
Meantime, Bored Panda reached out to single Ariane Sherine, who has an 11-year-old daughter, to hear her thoughts on the biggest challenges and benefits of parenting, how to deal with exhaustion and how to juggle everything at once. Ariane is the editor at ‘These Three Rooms’, has written a lot of informative and funny books, and also writes music. She told us that becoming a mother was “the best thing” she’s ever done in her life and that parenting “is a lot of hard work – but it’s so worth it. Trust me about it.”
