Every mom is a “hot mess mom” at some point in her day. The very fact that we have kids who are allergic to cooperating guarantees that. We’re the under-caffeinated, unshowered, legging-clad, exhausted, ever-tardy, and always muttering pageant queens of the parenting world who wear crumb-filled messy buns as our tiaras.
Some of us slink into the hot mess mom dumpster and live in it for a while like Oscar the Grouch. I mean, at least there are always snacks. If you’re a full-time hot mess mom and you wear that badge proudly (even though it’s splattered with ketchup), here are 11 memes that will have you nodding your head in solidarity.
1. I’m a tepid mom
Once upon a time, I was some semblance of a person who had their shit together. And then I had kids. The end.
2. We’re a whole other creature
If you’ve ever wondered what it means to be a hot mess mom, please refer to the above graphic. The only thing I would add is yelling. So much yelling.
3. Not all heroes wear capes
Some of us are just standing in the middle of the produce section with our tantruming kids slapping the latte we just ordered out of our hands, wondering where it all went wrong.
4. You’re still a badass
Life as a mom means nothing really goes according to plan from the moment your child is born until…well, until you die. Sorry this just got a little dark.
5. Perfection is overrated
This cold, dead gaze and bra full of yogurt-covered raisins gives me character. Okay?
6. Whatevs, chickenhead
Which is a plus for me, because it means the restaurant will be less crowded and I can order a damn drink faster.
7. No, but really
The hot mess mom struggle is real. We look like shit, feel like shit. Basically, everything is shit.
8. Down to clown
Don’t be fooled by these stains and under-eye bags that I got, I’m still, I’m still Jenny from the block.
9. It’s a 24-hour job
If the day ends in y, that means I will be winging literally every second of the day and praying to the gods, old and new, that I will survive until bedtime where I’ll get a minimum of 8 hours of mom guilt and worrying.
10. Is my fucken eye detached again?
Don’t you hate it when you’re trying to get lunches packed, make sure teeth are brushed (the kids teeth, not yours), slap on some tinted lip balm and the least offensive smelling t-shirt from the hamper, then you get the kids loaded up in the car and look in your rear-view mirror to back out of the parking lot and you realize body parts are not where they belong? Ha! Mom life, amiright?
11. Don’t judge a book by its sweatpants
Hot mess moms are some of the best moms out there. We sacrifice everything, even our personal hygiene, to make sure our kids are taken care of and loved. And we regret nothing.
We may not always have time for makeup and showers, but our hearts are damn full.
